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.
