A-Sun Amissa ~ For Burdened and Bright Light

Gizeh Records founder Richard Knox is continually expanding his sonic horizons.  His participation in multiple collectives allows him to change masks and look at the world in different ways.  Even with A-Sun Amissa, he’s produced quieter works than this.  For Burdened

Alaskan Tapes ~ Views From Sixteen Stories

I’m pretty excited about the t-shirt I just ordered from Alaskan Tapes.  It’s a perfect match for the fall, when birds begin to migrate lugubriously, starting their long journey from Toronto (the home of Brady Kendall) to parts south.  The same
