Kill/Hurt Records release KH008 cassette tape: The Babies “Live At The Smell” (January,14 2011)

“After many months of mixing, coordinating and putting all the pieces together — it’s here! Relieve the Babies’ January visit to Los Angeles with this live (!!) tape, recorded by us at the Smell. There’s only 100 of these in existence, but less than half remain after the presale, so you should act fast!

Comprised of members of Vivian Girls, Woods and Bossy, the Babies aren’t your average “indie supergroup”; they’re a dynamic, exciting band with their own distinct, catchy lo-fi sound that’s unlike anything produced by their other musical projects. From the jammy, sing-along “Caroline” to Cassie Ramone’s and Kevin Morby’s back-and-forth vocals on “Breaking the Law,” this Brooklyn-based band’s infectious brand of garage rock just might be one of the best things you’ll hear all year.

Recorded by Chris + Kat of Kill/Hurt at legendary DIY venue the Smell, KH008 captures the entirety of the Babies’ set from their January 2011 visit to Los Angeles.

Live at the Smell is limited to 100 copies, dubbed by Kill/Hurt onto a shiny blue C40 cassette and features artwork by Cali DeWitt of Teenage Teardrops.”
