The event was hosted by Filter and Ploom, with support from Laugnitas, Letherbee and Parson’s Chicken & Fish, and included an acoustic, intimate live performance by the band, performing as a duo. The show was filmed and recorded, content that should be trickling out at some point soon.

Over the last year, Land and Sea Dept. has asked artist friends of ours to compile mix tapes, which were then duplicated to cassette, now housed in gorgeous cases screen printed by frequent collaborators and friends Sonnenzimmer.

LSD 0018

Many, many thanks to all of you that came out to the Museum of Contemporary Art last week, for our sold out Body/Head show. Openers GATE and Tom Carter improvised together as a collaborative duo for the first time, a captivating set that had listeners pinned to their seats. Body/Head came with an audio/visual performance that stunned, playing material from their new Matador double album Coming Apart. As promised, it was truly a great night for all.
