Richard Youngs Tapped For Grapefruit Record Club LP

ryoungsgreen

Two of Jagjaguwar’s dear friends, Simon Joyner and Ben Goldberg, recently announced their Grapefruit Record Club, a subscription-based vinyl-only label that will release four exclusive LPs in 2011. And for its inaugural year, Grapefruit has selected Jagjaguwar’s Richard Youngs to join artists Lampchop, L. Eugene Methe and 200 Years (Ben Chasny of Six Organs of Admittance and Elisa Ambrogio of Magik Markers).

Having just returned from a tour and adventure in New Zealand, Richard is recording his contribution to the record club as I type this very blog entry. However, Richard has described the forthcoming Grapefruit album as “a meditation on native birdsong, Maori place names, the Pacific Ocean, satellite navigation, and clutch failure in Wanaka.” Yes, we are officially signed up.

Subscriptions for 2011 are open until Valentine’s Day. Kind of a perfect holiday gift for your household vinylophile black sheep, eh?
