Week in Review #111 FFFoxy Podcast #75 “I was pleased to have Shawn Reed of Night People Records join me once again on the podcast show for this week.

Sven at Work – “I Wanna Die in the Supermarket”

December 14, 2015

Sven at Work – “I Wanna Die in the Supermarket” The last time I heard from the person-behind-the-curtain known as Log Across the Washer, I was picking my jaw up from the floor after hearing that particular spell of audacious narrative rock.

Just Say Hello As I wrote in the introduction to yesterday’s label feature, 2014 looked like a good year for labels — we admittedly see and try to treat with a large number, but isn’t that any aspiring capitalist’s ideal vision of shopping? A world of choice, with access to varied experiences.... 

Gestures in Directions: Labels on the Move in 2015

January 29, 2015

Gestures in Directions: Labels on the Move in 2015 If 2014 was a good year for labels, it was because the wherewithal still exists to start one, and continues growing far afield; there are the same old hotbeds but growth is clearly across the board. For this feature we ended up mostly looking at American labels for the sake of a focused but still far...

Week in Review #41 This week I’m excited to share information on the newly-minted Eastern Daze festival, a celebration of the intersection of ancient and modern that gives the world “trance music” (broadly speaking). According to the organizers, Eastern Daze is “…a collaborative effort between...

Noumenal Loom – Winter Solstice Batch

December 13, 2013

Noumenal Loom – Winter Solstice Batch Last week, the boys over at Tabs Out released a list of 200 cassettes they felt contained some of the best music that 2013 had to offer.
