Fol Chen

DOWNLOAD: The Holograms Remix EP

VIDEO: “The Holograms” (Director: Keith Musil)

Highland Park, CA’s mysterious pop outfit Fol Chen released its second album just last month, followed by the FREE “The Holograms” EP, which featured the titular track remixed by Teen Daze, Primary 1, Hard Mix and FUR. The band is also thrilled to be hitting the road this Fall with two very different yet appropriate tour mates, !!! and The Apples in Stereo.

Before leaving town, though, Fol Chen is putting their own twist on the August Monday night residency at The Echo here in Los Angeles. On August 9, audience members came onstage to record live samples for the next Fol Chen album, and things just get more curious over the next two weeks:

August 16: Fol Chen’s set will be sung by people who responded to a Craigslist ad placed by the band.

August 23: Metal band Viscera will perform the music of Fol Chen.

The final night, August 30th, will feature the full band playing together one last time before saying goodbye to LA for a few months.
