Edison's Rival. Hmm. Wouldn't that be Nikola Tesla? Remember when David Bowie played Tesla in The Prestige? OK, I'm getting sidetracked here. YK Records--the label started by captain of the blogosphere and general mad scientist Michael Eades--have just released their second record. And now is a pretty good time for them to do so. YK debuted Uncle Skeleton's Pancho Chumley back in March. (Please go back and listen to that if you haven't; it's all whizzing, thumping, bumping madness.) And now YK Records are debuting Codaphonic's new five-song release, Edison's Rival.
Here's the cool part: You can preview the record, download the whole thing for free, or buy a physical copy. They're only printing up a limited run of 100 CDs, each of which comes "inside a 7" Arigato Sleeve, coupled with four hand-screened prints courtesy of Boss Construct." Sounds pretty nice. Think how awesome you'd be if you were one of the 100 folks who supported the local rock scene by purchasing a copy. I know I'd certainly think more of you. Now, go enjoy yourself some smooth, indie-pop groovetunes courtesy of Codaphonic and YK Records.
