PREMIERE: Beatrice Deer “Takugiursugit”

photo by Marc Vachon “Takugiursugit” begins with bass and guitar lines which dance with and through each other; resonating in their crossing.

VIDEO PREMIERE: Sera EKE’s “White Room”

  It's hard to peg down Sera EKE. As a self-described "artist who self-produces, pretty much, everything - including music, video; photos, artwork"; her work comes in tidy packages, complete with stark, often terrifying imagery. Her new video for "White Room" follows previous incarnations of work from 2017's EP Coup Coup Coup! "My hands can't be trusted [...]

PREMIERE: Kim Anderson Debuts “Yarrow” LP

photo by Andreas Hofweber Debut albums are an interesting lot. Oftentimes, they're described as a "freshman effort" in an attempt to explain work that isn't fully realized. Sometimes, they are the product of years, finely tuned and immaculately coiffed, a near-perfect reflection of an artist coming into their own. Kim Anderson's debut album [...]
