************

Zak M. - "Gravois Ave. Mango Prom"
America's heartland crooner delivers with a full length album of twisted outsider organ, dexterous lyrics and subtle tape manipulations. Drafted with the faint of heart in mind, these songs'll slowly drag you through the dried leaves & safely return you to the loveseat of your dreams (without breaking curfew). 34 minutes long. Full color artwork. Purple shell cassettes, painstakingly dubbed in real-time for the sake of hi-fidelity. Edition of 50 copies.




Jeremy Kennedy & Yosuke Kitazawa - "agenda (in bold)"
Electronic interventions & deconstructed guitar passages intermingle within a state of hypnagogia in this Los Angeles pairing's debut album. Discerning patience and deep listening are accentuated throughout the duo's improvisational reporting from the front line. 29 minutes long. Full color artwork. Dubbed in real-time for fidelity's sake. Edition of 50 copies.


 I started an art-blog-thing called LOOCH.
The first two installments feature the work of Maya Olympia Bush & Jen Shear.
Dig in.

December 21st, 2012: Chichicastenango
Justin Clifford Rhody
48 page color monograph
ISBN 978-0-9962005-1-6
Soft cover, glossy laminate 
Perfect bound 
7" x 8.5" 
Edition of 100

Dec. 21st, 2012: Chichicastenango is a chronicle of the activities
surrounding the end of the Mayan long count calendar in the Western
Highlands of Guatemala. Shot within a 24 hour period using a digital
camera (a landmark departure from Rhody’s invariable use of film),
this work drags the eyes of the viewer through the smoke plumes of
ancient ritual hilltops and crowded streets filled with fireworks
and trinket vendors. A day that the Western world naively
misconstrued as Doomsday is beautifully navigated to instead
portray the truly wide dynamics of mystery that lie behind
life on planet Earth.
