Parquet Courts, White Fence, and Speedy Ortiz to release new benefit splits

Post Author:

Famous Class has just announced the next three installments of their Less Artists More Condos 7” series, where they ask an artist to record a track and select one of their favorite emerging artists to do the b-side.

White Fence’s split is the first to come out on September 2 and will feature their new track “Nero (Has a Lot to Think About)”, along with a B-side track from elusive LA musician Jack Name called “Belly Full of Blood”. Parquet Courts’s “This Is Happening Now” will be released on September 16 with “Spike Train” as the backing track, which comes courtesy of Brooklyn post-wavers Future Punx. And finally Speedy Ortiz’s “Doomsday”, along with fringe pop singer/songwriter Chris Weisman’s “I Took It Off a Record”, will come out on October 7.

Set up in honor of Famous Class’s late friend Ariel Panero and his love of undiscovered talent, all digital proceeds go toward his memorial fund at VH1 Save the Music, which helps to build sustainable public school educational music programs across the country.
