Sometimes music just doesn’t work out immediately… It was back in early 2008 when I stumbled across “The Thread” initially, listened to the album quite a few times, but didn’t manage to really get something off the sounds featured on this album by Star Of Ash, one of the projects of Norwegian musician / singer … Read moreautumnal soundscapes: Star Of Ash
Well, what to say: The kind souls of Klub Moozak did it again: Following “[de:construction]” used for the KM #05 flyer, by now a picture of mine even older has made it to the recent flyer for KM#11: Thanks guys, glad to see some comin’ back and looking through these doings of mine even given … Read more“used” once again: KM #11 and strange wires.
