If you’ve been following this here blog you already know about Telephoned, the not-quite-covers project of FG producer/DJ Sammy Bananas and singin’ machine Maggie Horn. In the interest of spreading their joyful noise to the world at large, we’re dropping their debut self-titled EP this Tuesday (1/19) featuring tracks like their take on The Dream’s “Rockin That Thang,” which Pitchfork just featured on their daily Forkcast.
You can preview these EP tracks and much more on Telephoned’s new mixtape, Off The Hook, which you can download at RCRD LBL.
And for more hottt dial tone action, come out to the official Telephoned release party at Ella in NYC on 1/20, featuring a live performance and DJ set from the duo, who will be joined on the decks by Cubic Zirconia and FG’s own Nick Catchdubs. Flyer after the jump! Read More

We threw two parties in NYC to celebrate the label’s 2nd anniversary during this past CMJ fest – if you missed em, you missed out! Fortunately, we scoured the interweb to collect all the photo galleries, etc (hit us up if you have any more).
Check out Karmaloop’s great recap of Night #1 at 88 Palace above, which featured sets by Kingdom, Donnis (joined onstage by fellow ATLien Pill), Treasure Fingers, Sammy Bananas (who even rocked some Telephoned tracks with partner Maggie Horn), Trackademicks and the Honor Roll crew, and – a first for FG! – live band performances by Vega and The Suzan. Hi-Fi Cartel, Metromix, and The Culture Of Me got some pics, Billboard spoke to A-Trak for a video interview, and Beatcakes had a nice little blog post highlighting The Suzan (“probably one of the best shows I have seen in my life”).
For Night #2 we went with an all-DJ lineup at N8 in Brooklyn, featuring Jokers Of The Scene, LA Riots, Nacho Lovers and extended fam Udachi + Jubilee (Jamie from the xx was slated to play as well, but his band’s set ran late – we’ll get him in the mix soon enough!). You can check pics over at Driven By Boredom. Special thanks to Chicago’s own Thunder Horse for providing live projections / bugged visuals for both nights of festivities! See you for the 3-year bash soon…
