Click through to listen to samples from the release. I’m so pleased to have stumbled upon this label, beautiful packaging too…I’m bound to post more about them as i delve deeper.
The blurb:
"The obsessive record collectors Rob Millis and Jefferey Taylor have   done all the hard work for fans of oddball early recordings, rare world   music, ’20s jazz, blues and old time. Millis and Taylor, of the   experimental Seattle band Climax Golden Twins, have collected thousands   of unusual old 78 r.p.m. records from around the world, and a sampling   from their troves is now available in a lovely and beguiling two-disc   set called Victrola Favorites: Artifacts from Bygone Days.  The  set mixes popular recordings of recognizable American artists like  Roy  Smeck, Don Redman, the Tennessee Ramblers and Blind Boy Fuller with   more esoteric and arcane audio postcard-like tracks from around the   world, like the startling recordings of Burmese popular songs with   electric guitar accompaniment from the 1950s, or the other-worldly   croaking reed music from Thailand, or a lovely track of solo Korean   bamboo flute. The set is something like a cross between the   ever-relevant Anthology of American Folk Music, compiled by Harry  Smith, and the equally astounding series of collections called The Secret Museum of Mankind,   issued on the Yazoo label in the 1990s and based, in part, on a radio   show on the pioneering freeform radio station WFMU out of the New York   City area.”

About:

double F double S

Coney Island Sound is something that i started a couple of years ago as a way of making electronic, accessible pop music with a slightly experimental twist.....

As with everything these days, there are so many places on the web to put yourself. "double F-double S" is the basket where i'll be putting my online eggs.

This should make things more focussed and allow you to access everything from mixtapes to blogs all roughly in the same place.

I'll be getting back to making music a little more quickly again, and under a few new guises..maybe getting back to my electronic or hip-hop roots every now and again too.

There will be new Coney Island Sound material too, i've enough sketched out for several albums by now, just need to wrap em all up...which takes a little time, but i'm working on it!

So look out for lots of new music, ideas, maybe a bit of writing and do drop us a line if you'd like to collaborate!
