Items & Things to Release Label Compilation
- Words: Christian Santana
Last summer, Marc Houle, Troy Pierce, and Magda left their longtime home at Minus and elected to throw their efforts into their own Items & Things imprint. Now, Items & Things has become a proper label in its own right, and to celebrate dropping 15 records under its name, the record hub will be releasing a compilation entitled Variables on July 13. The release will be available in a special-edition die-cut slick box with four vinyls (pictured above), with a corresponding CD of the tunes mixed by Magda dropping on July 27. The 15 tracks will also be available as individual digital downloads. You can check out the tracklist—featuring appearances from label cohorts like Madato, Jimmy Edgar, and Danny Benedettini—which is available for your perusal, along with a teaser video for Magda's mix CD, below.
