Jad Fair + Hifiklub + kptmichigan release a single-sided LP called Bird House, inform you that six goods make a great

So Jad Fair — a founding member of the off-kilter punk group Half Japanese — has been around the block a time or two. You know, collaborating with the likes of Teenage Fanclub, Yo La Tengo, Sonic Youth, Daniel Johnston, Mo Tucker, and John Zorn. No big deal. French artist Hifiklub and Germany’s kptmichigan have done their fair share of cool collaborations as well, including projects with Lee Ranaldo, Andrew W.K., and R. Stevie Moore. Recently, Jad Fair, Hifiklub, and kptmichigan all got together and recorded some music for Fair’s art exhibition at Le Dojo in Nice, France, and guess what — now they’re releasing a joint LP called Bird House.

Out January 24 on Joyful Noise Recordings, Bird House is limited to a one-time pressing of 300 hand-numbered 12-inch records — the first 45 copies pressed on translucent gold vinyl with black ink, and the next 255 pressed on translucent yellow vinyl with red ink. Side B of every copy features original Jad Fair screen-printed artwork. Do they want you to play this, or hang it from your ceiling as a decoration? Probably doesn’t matter; you can preorder copies here and stream “Let’s Win” at the Chocolate Grinder.
