Bell Hollow on RCRD LBL, Free Remix!
Bell Hollow recently signed with burgeoning online music purveyor RCRD LBL, and will be giving away monthly free mp3s of remixes of songs from Foxgloves, beginning this week with fellow RCRD LBL artists Project Jenny, Project Jan's orchestrated reworking of "Copper Crayon."

Download "Copper Crayon (Project Jenny, Project Jan Remix)" now!

Check out Bell Hollow's page on RCRD LBL here.

This track is the first in a series of remixes (in coming months, look for cool creations by Halo33, Phofo, and others), which will be bundled with three outtakes from 2007's album sessions ("Peru," "Late at Night," "Throw Me") as a digital-only Foxgloves Extras EP, to be released in December 2008 on five03 via iTunes.

The "Copper Crayon" remix mp3 is absolutely free, and any proceeds from download of this track will be donated to benefit Bell Hollow's friends and five03 labelmates, The Prids, who were recently involved in a horrible driving accident while on tour that left several members seriously injured. To make a personal donation to help Portland's finest, follow this link to their website.
