Cheryl E. Leonard ~ Schism

“If your home were on fire, what item would you rescue first?”  In 2019, the top answer was the laptop. During the pandemic, we became even more attached to our electronic devices.  It’s hard to imagine getting through our lockdowns without

Gaspar Claus ~ Adrienne

Considering how often we’ve typed his name, it’s shocking to realize that Gaspar Claus has never recorded a solo album.  The cellist first came to our attention a decade ago as part of FareWell Poetry ~ a collective whose alumni have continued

giant skeletons ~ Von Belkinrode nach Bellingroth: an Audio-Geography

Yuting Wu ~ Mindtrick

When presenting a debut release, it’s always helpful to have a striking cover image.  Mindtrick‘s sci-fi photo is a macroscopic image of the slime mold Comatricha. Even more amazing than the optics, the music sounds like the art.  Are our minds
