Ernest Gonzales "Self Awakening"
Hot on the heels of Friends of Friends Vol. 2 (if you need a refresher, we posted a couple of mp3s from the release), the LA-based label is coming back with the Self Awakening EP from Texan Ernest Gonzales. Featuring remixes by Faunts, Yppah, and Mexicans with Guns, the EP should also whet appetites for Gonzales' upcoming full-length, slated for release on FoF early next year. In the meantime, they've offered up the EP's title track for download—its melancholy guitar work recalls bands like Tristeza, but Gonzales' music is also backed by peppy laptop beats and glazed with a warm Nintendo fuzz.
