Recommended Track: Nero (Has A Lot To Think About)

Less Artists More Condos (LAMC) is a project that cherry picks the raddest musical minds of the planet to debut one previously unreleased track. That artist then chooses someone to tag team with on a 7” split and Famous Class records packages it into a magnificent bundle of joy. On Series 12, Tim Presley invites us inside his stained glass menagerie of noise with “Nero (Has a Lot to Think About)”. Xylophones, hissing tape and his signature “Hurdy Gurdy” warble make this track pop like a can of blood orange pellegrino (pure psychedelic citrus man!). Play this for the end of summer, first days of rain, or as your tweak cleaning soundtrack because you accidentally got really really high. Seriously though, Presley is on a tear right now and the dude is finally getting the recognition he deserves.

On the flip side, LA weirdo John Webster Adams (Jack Name) serves up a very Liarsesque foray with “Belly Full of Blood”. It’s a dark, atmospheric synth ballad. Or it’s post-industrial goth folk à la Death In June. Or it’s just some creepy song tired of hyperbolic genre labeling. Either way Jack Name has crafted a worthy partner for this split that is selling out quick (red vinyl 86’d). All digital proceeds go toward the Ariel Panero Memorial Fund to help restore music education in public schools. Do it!
