Feature: 2018: You Have Been Loved

1. The ring has absence built into it. It is raw material circling a nothing until the body enters the frame. The space between the embroidered enamel and no thing (the place for your finger) is void. It is a framing structure. Ring isn’t ring without finger. I need...

♫ Listen: Period Bomb – Lost and Found

Lost and Found (Already Dead) may reference the demo-tape idea behind this release, but there’s a charm and playfulness and utterly insane variety that Period Bomb injects into their music. Yes, these are, in fact, actual demos, recorded over a “large swathe” of time...

Memory Keepers tease upcoming EP with Brian Eno cover

Ah, how quickly we forget how slowly we remember. Years-in-review might serve to mitigate a general lack of mindfulness in an era of streaming ephmerality, but how much and for how long? Questions of retention abound not only media discourse but The Club. Worlds...
