Our friends at Underwater Peoples are set to release a split 7" -- with cover art by Real Estate frontman Martin Courtney, pictured above -- next week, featuring tracks from Ridgewood, NJ, homies-since-1st-grade Ducktails and Julian Lynch (his debut 7"). The 7" will be accompanied by a DVD with two videos by Richard Law. Here's one of Julian Lynch's two excellent b-side contributions, the laid back, breezy tropical psych-pop jam "Garden 2."

The Ducktails/Julian Lynch split 7" is out July 13. Pre-order here. Also, in the deal of the year, grab the label's Summertime Showcase for $4.50.
