In her debut release, Beach Sleeper, Desiree Cannon leaves everything on the studio floor - the studio, in this case, is the living room of a 1920s Oakland house littered with records and a variety of 1970s and 80s analog recording equipment. The album is heart-worn, complicated, and raw - it's recommended for anyone who understands the complexity of human emotion and isn't afraid to cry.
A jazzy hip hop project from long-time collaborators Karen Less & The Brothers Amor, recorded over the course of many fun days and long nights during September 2018 at Long Road Studio in Oakland, CA. Recorded in honor of MacKenzie Mercedes Alexander Persons, soon to be born into this world. Limited Edition of 100.
LISTEN: Love Is On The Way
The first Long Road Society 45 from the elusive Moses Cadillac featuring "Spin Right Round" b/w "A Thousand Times." Reminiscent of old sedans and shared cigarettes, dusty wine bottles and early Sunday mornings, black & white movies and lo-fi hip hop.
Debut album from cosmic-jazz outfit Sitka Sun, the instrumental project of bassist/arranger Patrick Murphy. Recommended for long drives, contemplative days, and desert sunsets. Available in vinyl and digital formats - vinyl LP also includes digital download of the album, sent to your email upon ordering.
"Racing For Pink Slips", The Long Road Society print division, is committed to putting out high quality, far-out publications about art, music, and the condition of the human spirit. The "Racing For Pink Slips" imprint has existed since 2010, and is philosophically focused on the idea that you go for broke on your dreams, ready to give it all away in the name of authenticity.
Included in this release is a high-quality 28-page art zine featuring seven original paper collages by Travis Weller and a 90-minute mixtape by Moman of rare and out of print music spanning many genres.
