Before I dig into the actual music, can we just acknowledge that collaboration is awesome? 3 labels across two continents (La Station Radar, Antelier Ciseaux and Hands in the Dark) are joining forces to release a split tape between Johnny Hawaii and Cough Cool. The tape is the first release for France's Johnny Hawaii, and a victory lap for Cough Cool after his full length debut last year. The two are an easy fit together as both artists play a similar brand of shoegaze influenced lo-fi. Cough Cool is louder, tighter and more distorted, while Johhny Hawaii softens the texture and allows his music more room to wander. Stream two new tracks from the release below, along with an older Cough Cool favorite to be included on the release.
