On Friday, June 19th, the release party for the mildly anticipated 7″ split between TNM’s Beati Paoi and Central Standard Record’s Aeon Grey occurred. It was a good time and all parties whom played (Skylar Johnson, Gaiden Gadema, Waxeater) were awesome. Especially Waxeater. Those guys played an intense set.
But, again, the reason for the show was the celebration/release of the split.
If you missed it , you missed a good time. However, you did not miss your opportunity to pick it up. You can purchase it online here (on right side of the page), as well as from ZZZ records in Des Moines, with more locations to come.
In addition to the split, a digital album entitled Quid Pro Quo is included to download. 14 tracks in all, it contains both new originals and remixes by Beati and Aeon. Check out a few tracks from the QPQ album below…as well as Beati Paoli covering “Lose My Breath” by My Bloody Valentine.
“Disturbance” – Beati Paoli
“Detonated City” – Aeon Grey
“Lose My Breath (My Bloody Valentine cover) – Beati Paoli
Over the past few months, Beati Paoli has been working on new material. They’ve been planning a split 7″ with hip hop artist Aeon Grey that will also include two digital mini-albums (via download cards). the 7″, titled “Quid Pro Quo”, will feature one new song from each artist, and the download only material will be a combination of new and remixed/reworked tracks.
The release party is scheduled for june 19th (at The Vaudeville Mews in Des Moines, IA), but you don’t have to wait that long to get a taste of the new stuff. This friday, 5/29/09, Beati Paoli will be uploading a new song, called “Massive Charm Offensive”, onto their website (http://www.beatipaoli.net) and myspace. I’ll try and upload it here as well.
