A triumvirate of Bloomington music-related businesses announced a couple days ago that they're banding together to bring you a kinda awesome LP and 7-inch featuring live performances and studio tracks by the likes of Bonnie "Prince" Billy, Damien Jurado, Lou Barlow and a bunch of local bands.
The comp, It Happened Here, is a co-production of Landlocked Music, Russian Recordings and St. Ives Records, and will be released April 17, which also happens to be Record Store Day.
The LP features both studio tracks and live recordings made at Russian Recordings, which began hosting shows when it moved to downtown Bloomington last year. The 7-inch may end up being the most desirable collectors' item, being as it features tracks from live performances at Landlocked by the Bonnie Prince ("Beware Your Only Friend") and the Lou Barlow (a Dinosaur, Jr. tune, "Imagination Blond").
Only 750 copies will be pressed.
