More Info:

Highly respected record label Light In The Attic is celebrating the 50th anniversary of 1960s sunshine-pop band The Free Design's debut album, Kites Are Fun, on limited edition colored vinyl. Kites Are Fun is a sunshine-bubblegum-daisy-puppy pop masterpiece that stands the test of time. Fans of the Beach Boys will wonder how they ever overlooked this 1967 gem, long admired by the likes of Beck, Madlib, and Belle & Sebastian. The Free Design was born out of the the Greenwich Village scene of 1966, and before disbanding in 1972, they had released six albums with tightly-knit vocal arrangements and intricately beautiful melodies. Nine of the songs on their debut Kites Are Fun are originals, notably the title track, which became an instant soft-pop classic. Well-chosen covers, including the Beatles' "Michelle" and Simon & Garfunkels' "The 59th Street Bridge Song," complete the collection. For Record Store Day Black Friday 2017, Light In The Attic is proud to introduce The Free Design to a whole new generation of listeners.
