Dublab to Re-release Freeways

dublab presents: freeways

Six years after its initial release on Emperor Norton Records dublab is proud to announce the digital re-release of its first compilation album, “dublab presents: freeways.” This visionary collection, produced by frosty & Carlos Niño, gave the world an early taste of many, now-familiar artists and defined dublab¹s future roots aesthetic. “freeways” is an inspired view into Los Angeles¹ vibrant musical landscape. It is a living time capsule that remains light years ahead.

The landscape presented on “freeways” is expansive. Glowing pockets of beauty from the wide sprawl of Los Angeles are merged into a unified spectrum. These diverse, progressive songs reflect every shade of creative California soul and provide a roadmap to infinite adventure. “dublab presents: freeways” continues to speed sweetly into the future.

What the press has to say thus far:
“This is the great American folk album.”
-The Nerve Magazine

“Singer-banjoist Sam Amidon’s repertoire is made up of adapted
American folk songs, but he puts a unique stamp on the material with
his gentle, eerily deadpan voice and subtle arrangements.”
-TimeOut NY
