I couldn’t be more excited to announce Singles Club today. Part record club. Part music journal. We’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign to help produce and promote the first volume of releases.Our first release will be a 7” from Daniel Bachman, good friend and one of the most talented guitar players around.
Find out more about the club, subscribe for Vol. #1 and learn more right here. Lots of good stuff coming up in 2014.
While looking at pictures taken at FMLY Fest Brooklyn, I came across this one picture capturing one of the most beautiful moments I’ve ever experienced due to the power of pure love and passion for art/music.
This happened under the rain during Yohuna’s (Johanne Swanson) amazing set. Everyone gathered around her and her gear, holding up Noah Klein Cuddle Formation’s parachute to protect her gear from the rain as she played her lovely songs. This moment was definitely one of the highlights of FMLY Fest Brooklyn (if not The Highlight). To see how the passion and love for art/music inspired this strong sense of community amongst each of one of us that were there, was truly a gift. Nowadays it is very rare to see that which is why this was truly a beautiful inspiring experience.
So I decided to send Lisa this picture along with other ones (who is all the way in France) to share what a beautiful experience that weekend had been for me. And this is what she did with that picture.. She drew it!!! I’m still and will always be perplexed at how amazing this drawing came out. She is incredibly talented! I hope all of you enjoy it! :)
The best dream pop comes from Baltimore (just stating a fact here) and Secret Mountains happen to be from Baltimore and happen to be recording dream pop. What a coincidence. After a series of EP’s and singles, the sixtet are set to release their full-length debut Rainer through Friends…
On the last day in Bangkok we randomly found one DUSTY record shop. Overcame language barrier with spirited keyboard wacking and knob twiddling pantomime. These three Thai organ LP’s from the 60’s were produced. I think they are amazing so I’m sharing. ENJOY.
