MFR-003 is a thing of beauty both audibly and visually, it's Mars Loves Venus by the Brunettes. Super sugary twee pop from New Zealand with wonderful share male/female vocals.
Originally release in 2004 on Lil' Chief records, we knew we needed it on vinyl so we pressed 300 copies all on split color vinyl, half white and half clear with red and black swirls (the photo doesn't do it justice. This record also has tiny hearts cut into the labels so that you can see the vinyl color peaking through. We're quite proud of the artwork too, especially the back cover. The band had an uncropped version of the front cover that was so fantastic we convinced them to let us use it as the back cover.
If you like saucy duets like She & Him, Mates of State, or Nancy & Lee, you'd probably like this record too. We love it.
The first video below shows the record on press at United Record Pressing edited to the song, "These Things Take Time".
The second video was done as an homage to record stores, the song is called "Record Store" so it seemed like a fun way to celebrate stores we love (past and present) while promoting this record.
