VEGA's Well Known Pleasures EP--you know, the one that was "soon-to-be-released" back in January--is supposed to be available online today from Vogue College Records, though I'll be damned if I can figure out where to download it.
Maybe VEGA mastermind Alan Palomo spent too much time working on his Pre Party Jamz mix for Nicky Digital to finish up the EP? The 28-minute mix (a free download at the link above) includes his "No Reasons" and also premieres a new Vega track, "Kyoto Gardens," along with tracks from his friend and fellow disco-house-dance-pop outfit Miami Horror, New Edition and more. At least you'll have one new VEGA track to listen to while you sit there, twiddling your thumbs, waiting for the EP to hit cyberspace.
