On July 26th, both Narnack and Greatminds records will release the album Beat L.A., which will feature current artists and bands from L.A. covering the songs of their L.A. predecessors. The list of both cover-ers and coverer-ees is impressive. Artists like Bobb Bruno of Best Coast and Crystal Antlers have reworked bands such as The Doors, Cheech and Chong and The Go-Go's. As an added bonus, all proceeds go to the Doctors Without Borders Haiti Relief Fund, so you can jam out and help another human being at the same time. Grab Crystal Antlers' version of Black Randy & the Metrosquad's "I Slept in an Arcade" over at Pitchfork.
