July 15, 2014

Hobo Cubes – “All U Need” We last heard from Hobo Cubes’ Francesco De Gallo thanks to his role in a collaborative video for Hazy Montagne Mystique, though he’s been hard at work elsewhere; case in point, yesterday Canadian imprint Revolving Door unveiled a new limited edition tee graced by one of his designs.

Week in Review #16

April 26, 2014

Week in Review #16 Wrapping up the week after Record Store Day has a fairly distinct flavor for me and probably many others… it was difficult to keep up with this year.

Sacred Phrases – Inscriptions Volume 2

July 29, 2013

Sacred Phrases – Inscriptions Volume 2 The cognitive significance of any label that can effectively curate a diverse and engaging catalog within a particular genre framework is enormous; they become touchstones for how nostalgia evolves over time and engines of change, simply by virtue of releasing works that effectively illustrate the nuance...
