Coming to the mind of the good ppl @ Friends Of Friends Music, is the type of comp that makes you smile, and more importantly thankful for friends. FoF has been a rising musique boutique working all ends of this scene we love, as promo, show production but also as a label toting such rising acts as Shlohmo.
Just hours ago, Friends Of Friends Music released a freebie featuring some of heavyweights from the great state of California: Pop Massacre.
What is this?? Well, some of the best from the formidable FoF rolodex were asked to take one of the fave pop songs and remix it as they saw fit. Wow. So you'll get to hear songs from your tender youth (maybe even your parents',) or your sister's iPod, but with a 2011/FoF twist. Love these fun projects. And so will you. What does it look like??
