Big news from local band Fol Chen. They've recently signed with Asthmatic Kitty Records where they'll be labelmates with bands like Sufjan Stevens, My Brightest Diamond and Castanets. Be on the lookout for their AK debut, Part 1: John Shade, Your Fortune's Made on February 3, 2009.
You can see Fol Chen do a sound installation live at the LA County Museum of Art on 11/15/08. They'll be playing a more (presumably) traditional show at the Echo on 11/18/08.
