A selection of musicals acts originally planned for the Fair, with dublab, Junior High, KCHUNG Radio, and Printed Matter with Noah Klein
“Let’s All Stay Home” by V. Vale, with Marian Wallace
At the start of this lockdown, V. Vale—longtime exhibitor and punk publishing legend of Re/Search Search and Destroy—wrote a few funny, heartwarming songs about the pandemic and shared them on Bandcamp. We’ve created a special sing-along version of “Let’s All Stay Home,” performed by Marian Wallace and written by V. Vale. Share your karaoke/covers with us via email, or by tagging #laabf2020online or @printedmatter_artbookfairs on Instagram. You can listen to more songs by Vale at researchpubs.bandcamp.com.
dublab, an LA-based non-profit community radio station, originally partnered with Printed Matter to organize a series of musical acts for LAABF’s Opening Night. In place of these performances, mmarz and Maral + Annapurna have put together two new mixes to share online.
Maral and Annapurna present a collaborative audio-video mix that draws inspiration from their respective Iranian and Indian cultural backgrounds, as well as their overarching musical influences. This mix includes 3 unreleased tracks and some favorites from Maral’s recent mixtape release. You can also listen to audio only through the Printed Matter Mixcloud. ︎
Los Angeles-based music collective mmarz is proud to present an exclusive mixtape for Printed Matter, to provide escape during turbulent times. By turns joyful and contemplative, this mix features a globe-trotting blend of downtempo, jazz fusion, ambient and electronic — selected by mmarz’s residents: Max Salty, Ruling Planet, Saffron, Radha and Zach. If you enjoy the diversity of sounds here, check out their website at mmarzmix.com for a whole library of mixes to help see you through the next while. ︎
In place of their line-up, Junior High presents a playlist featuring bands and songs all about Los Angeles. Listen Here ︎
