    via Art Lord & the Self-Portraits - The Definitive Collection 2xLP

    Mastered by Sarah Register of Talk Normal
    Vinyl 2xLP out on February 14, 2013

    Locke Ernstfrost & his Self-Portraits are coming out of retirement... for one night.

    Art Lord & the Self-Portraits played their first show on Valentine's Day 2003, and exactly 10 years later they will play their only reunion show at Kings in Raleigh, NC on February 14, 2013.

    In 2003, Locke Ernstfrost, the self-proclaimed "Art Lord," created four self-portraits which magically came to life to perform his songs for him (because no one else was good enough). The myth of Locke is quite the tale, but for now here’s some news on his band's recordings.

    Friends Records will release a double LP retrospective compiling material from Art Lord & the Self-Portraits’ four original albums, "Searching for a Complement," "In Your Boombox," "Ideas For Housecrafts," and "Snail," plus some live recordings from the band's formative years. Each LP will come with a download code for all 4 original albums, 2 live shows, plus rare demo recordings.

    While Friends Records has always focused on happenings within Baltimore's city limits, it’s also important to understand how we got here. Two years before Future Islands made the move north at Dan Deacon’s invitation, Sam Herring, William Cashion, Gerrit Welmers, and Adam Beeby were Art Lord & the Self-Portraits. The band used to play frequently with Dan Deacon, including a two and a half week tour together not long before the band broke up and formed Future Islands.
