We told you about Holopaw's great video for "The Lights From the Disco." Now, John Orth (Holopaw) has teamed up with Markland Starkie (Sleeping States), both openly gay musicians, to release a 45 RPM 12-inch June 18 that includes two distinct EPs.
Sleeping States' Old vs. New is a reworking of older songs in a newer context and was originally released overseas. Holopaw's Through 'til the Morning is a nine-minute remix of Academy Songs, Volume I. Yeah, you gotta hear it to believe it! (Buy it here.)
Oh and did we mention it's pressed on pink vinyl? Plus, a portion of proceeds from album sales will go to The Point Foundation, the organization designed to help LGBTQ students achieve academic and leadership potential. Great cause, great music.
