Love and Hates

December 21, 2011

myspace band of the week

Love and Hates is a twee/rap duo consisting of Yuppa (HNC) and Moe (Miila and the Geeks). The girls joined up in 2008 as a DJ unit for the fanzine Twee Grrrls Club’s party events.  They self-released a number of cassette tapes through Moe’s label Pit Pony and released their debut album L.A.H. on December 7 on Yuppa’s label White Lily Records.

L.A.H. is a delightful mix of kindergarten hip hop cuteness. You can pick it up at CD Japan or on vinyl at Jet Set Records.
