Follow-up set: Aloha Got Soul #4 on VF Live

We're back.  This latest VF Live set was recorded impromptu immediately following our third installment for the series. Pulling from our crates, we edge away from the previous set's pop and psych sounds to paint a vivid image of Hawaii's range of styles, from tongue-in-cheek Vangelis tributes (see: Doug Lindsay and Pegge Hopper) and out-of-print Seawind covers to the latest AGS 7" (FRNT BZNZZ) and surfer soundtrack gems (Honk). The resulting mix is a trip through the duo's signature ability to highlight Hawaii's music in a refreshing, unexpected manner. Learn more: https://thevinylfactory.com/live/vf-live-aloha-got-soul-4
