The Chocolate Bobka blog, which frequently contributes live videos to Pitchfork.tv’s “Tunnelvision” program, already has a DVD/mixtape/journal publication called the Report. And now the blog is branching out into yet another physical medium, launching a new cassette label called the Curatorial Club. Dedicated to releasing previously unavailable music from favorite musicians, the label just put out its first three tapes.
First, there’s Alternates, a collection of demos and new music from New York lo-fi crew Twin Sister. There’s also Mad Dog, an “audio sketchbook” of bedroom recordings from Real Estate bassist and Alex Bleeker and the Freaks frontman Alex Bleeker, and the physical debut from Baltimore producer Run DMT. That last one is limited to a run of 20, so you should probably jump on that shit already.
