You might have heard that Karl Blau from Anacortes, WA has become involved with us. Not only did he donate a bunch of tape decks to us to help speed our process, but he also has recorded a very special album for us to release at historic Dub Narcotic Studio. The album features the poetry of the late poet Robert Sund, with spontaneous accompaniment from Adam Oelsner (L.A.K.E./Kickball), Andrew Dorsett (L.A.K.E./Live Active Cultures/-a) and myself. It's in the can and in the editing process, and it will be available shortly.

Also new to the family is Joseba Irazoki from the Basque Country. He is a sort of avant-garde blues guitarist with the occasional subtle electronic twist to his organic minimalist music. This is some serious PHD shit if you know what I mean. He has a couple albums released under the moniker "Do" on Spain's Lucky Kitchen label, and his newest release is a cassette on brown interiour called "dosi."
- Blues improbisatulues bezala defini dezakegu "Dosi" izeneko Irazokiren lan berria. Kanta baten batean, gitarra elektriko zikin samarrek hillbilly kutsua hartzen dute . Cassette formatu berezian argitaratzen du " Brown Interiour music" zigilu estatubatuarrak .
- Podemos definir el nuevo trabajo de Irazoki como Blues improvisado; guitarras eléctricas distorsionadas que llegan a coger un tono hillbilly. Lo publica en cassette el sello estadounidense "Brown interiour music".
