Limited-edition Jad Fair Record Due


Have fun with
pronunciations! Jad Fair + Hifiklub + kptmichigan
= Bird House


Half Japanese founder (and collaborator to everyone from
Sonic Youth and Yo La Tengo to Teenage Fanclub and Daniel Johnston) Jad Fair’s
upcoming album, Bird House, is out on
January 24th on Joyful Noise Recordings. For it, he teamed up with prolific
French artist Hifiklub and Germany’s
kptmichigan. Unlike the
traditionally simple, playful style of Half
 the new LP, features hypnotic, fluid musicianship alongside
Jad Fair’s psychologically imbalanced vocal style. Originally recorded for Jad
Fair’s art exhibition at Le Dojo – Nice in France, this record exemplifies
Fair’s signature childhood naivety alongside Hifiklub and kptmichigan’s ethereal, jazz-leaning experimental
indie rock.


Having collaborated themselves with the likes of Lee
Ranaldo, Andrew W.K., and R Stevie Moore, Hifiklub and kptmichigan
bring a level of sonic mastery to this album which balances the otherwise
unruly Jad Fair. The end result is a strangely listenable blend of
atmospherically tempered experimentalism.

Bird House is limited to a one-time
pressing of just 300 hand-numbered 12″ records. This single-sided LP
features original Jad Fair artwork which is screen-printed directly on Side B
of the record, and is packaged in a picture-disc sleeve. The first 45 copies
are pressed on translucent gold vinyl with black ink, and 255 copies are
pressed on translucent yellow vinyl with red ink. The album is set to be
released on January 24th. Visit the record label HERE
