Finnish accordion

An iPhone recording taken during the Dense Reduction show in Brooklyn, featuring Ben Owen, Anne Guthrie, and Yellow Crystal Star… From the drunken weaves of our undulating Finnish filmmaker friends emerged a woman with an accordion and a strong voice. She graced us with her music before Mark’s (YCS) set, which can be heard briefly at the end of the recording.

In other Notice Recordings news, an email-conducted interview by Foxy Digitalis / Digitalis Industries has been posted on their site: http://www.foxydigitalis.com/foxyd/?p=17044. A fine example of how we see things, now.

The Wire magazine has posted two of our tapes on their “Sleeves Received” blog, featuring “gems” received in their “mailbag”. A great, simple blog, highlighting some of the fantastic printing and design work on so many records, CDs, and cassette tapes these days.
