Entitled Variables, the collection includes unreleased tracks from Magda, Marc Houle, Troy Pierce, Jimmy Edgar, Click Box and more.
Items & Things has been around since 2006, but it didn't fully kick into gear until less than a year ago when its founders (Magda, Marc Houle and Troy Pierce) left Minus to focus on it exclusively (since then the label's output has nearly tripled). Variables collects previously unreleased tracks from the core trio themselves, plus a number of artists close to the label, including young producers Items & Things took under its wing, such as Danny Benedettini and Madato. Bigger names like Jimmy Edgar and Click Box contribute tracks as well.
The box set includes four 180 gram records on cream-colored vinyl. (All of the tracks will be available digitally as well.) Magda put together a mix component to the compilation as well, due out July 27th, two weeks after the box set.
