As mentioned, Oakland art collective and record label Slang Church is releasing the Long Armed Bill's Summer Comp (Vol. 1) compilation on May 1, with all proceeds benefiting Big Minds, "an attachment-based, community-focused, non-traditional 1-8th grade special ed program in the San Francisco Bay Area" whose director Billy Bouzous is also head of Slang Church.
So far, they've released songs by Mom Jeans, Long Neck, and Kevin Nichols, and we're now premiering the contribution from Oakland-based, Asian Man Records-signed indie band Small Crush. The song is called "Reflection," and it's a quiet, tender acoustic song that'll take you back to the Garden State soundtrack era of indie folk. Hear it for yourself, alongside the three previously released songs from the comp, below. The rest of the tracklist is TBA.
