Do y’all remember The Baby Skins? That’s the name of Crystal Madrilejos and Angela Carlucci’s band. Sometimes joined by James Broughel on bass and Steven Mertens on drums, they played around NYC from 2001 to 2008, recorded and self-released their own music, and sang on some Herman Dune LPs. They made some of my favourite songs of all time, and I feel super-lucky to have seen so many of their shows over the years.
Their music has been out of circulation for a minute, so with their blessing I’ll be making some of their releases available for download (with all proceeds going directly to The Baby Skins) and free streaming at http://thebabyskins.bandcamp.com/
This month we’ll start with their first full band release (which was a three song demo) and their contribution to Dashan Coram’s double disc set, “A Luv-A-Lot Compilation.”
Please enjoy them. I’ll give a shout when the next batch is up.
