The always wonderful Aquarium Drunkard has assembled a terrific tribute compilation to Television’s oft neglected second album Adventure . Originally released in 1978, Adventure remains one of my all time favourite records and is a worthy candidate to honour. The new compilation features contributions from a number of Los Angeles’ best musical talents, and is a follow-up of sorts to last year's stellar Ram on L.A. compilation.
The list of participating artists includes: Local Natives, The Henry Clay People, The Happy Hollows and more. (Full listing below) My personal highlight is the Imaad Wasif/ Lykke Li collaboration- “Carried Away”. The compendium is available as a free high-quality download in either handy FLAC and/or 320kbs mp3 configurations. Organizers are encouraging those who have the means to donate to the Los Angeles based Silverlake Conservatory of Music. 100% of all donations go directly to the conservatory. A worthy cause dear reader, this one is well worth your attentions and donations. Go here to download it.
The Players: The Henry Clay People :: Glory, Foreign Born :: Days, The Happy Hollows :: Foxhole, Local Natives :: Careful, The Deadly Syndrome :: Carried Away, Imaad Wasif w/ Lykke Li :: The Fire, Dirt Dress :: Ain’t That Nothin’, The Growlers :: The Dream’s Dream.
