To accompany their recently released 2012 music issue, The Believer has included a special limited edition cassette compilation, Love Songs for Lamps, curated by the inimitable Calvin Johnson. Songs were chosen from a range of artists who currently have cassette only releases, and were handpicked by Johnson.
The Believer cassette release tour touched down in D.C. at the newly reopened Meeps vintage clothing store in Adams Morgan. In addition to Calvin’s headlining set, featured excellent performances from Priests and Laura Lief & APB. A couple of songs from Calvin’s set above.
