Mexican Summer record label—best known for its hands-on sensibility and ornately packaged limited-edition vinyl—teams up with their Brooklyn-based imprint Software Label helmed by Oneohtri Point Never to provide Dazed with an exclusive stream of their stylistic sampler, ‘Tight Fog,” which releases today at independent record stores like Rough Trade. Selling for only £2.50 a pop, its basically an ingenious chance for record buyers to glean an insight into the labels’ output at a recession-friendly price.
Spanning early gems by Real Estate and Tamaryn, to more recent releases from Autre Ne Veut and Lace Curtain, the 'Tight Fog' compilation is a diverse, but oddly cohesive look at their journey so far:
