Rotational Review

I’ve started a music blog for writing reviews on the shorter, freer, more stream-of-consciousness side of things. First and lasting impressions. Hoping to do a few interviews too.

If you want to send me anything, any format, send an email to rotationalreview(at)gmail(dot)com for the address. Links/downloads are more than fine too, if you wanted to save some cash on postage.

Keep me in the loop with your work.

Power Moves Library

The Label is a Library, the system is the same, but:

1. Smaller tape editions (home-dubbed with hand-stamped art).
2. Less general costs/productions/timelines.
3. Re-purposing found + cheap materials.
4. Occasional mixtapes + writings + art.

Two new releases for the library coming soon, September is the goal, with a few others carving into shape as well.

Editions aren’t small to be rare/collectable, rather it’s the perfect size to do at home, with care, as gifts, eco/econo. Digital is free and easily accessible.

Not sure why this is the way I’ve chosen, just makes the most sense to me, using my resources and time.

I feel as we head into 2016/the future it’s nice to divert from the usual way of things and to take the time and effort to put ourselves into our work full vision, with no barriers for the listener, so they can discover at any time, while digging, stumbling upon, or lucking into.

A reminder for those curious library finds on days when it’s natural and you’re not thinking about what to look for.

Hidden shelves.

This new shape of the label lines up with my avocational views: productions versus budget versus necessity versus creativity, unobstructed. I’m stoked it can turn into something, keeping my fingers crossed. Challenge meet nail meet head.

Thanks for everything, I’ve been mind-bogglingly blown away by the support so far. Hoping this continues into the new directions we take over/up/down/from here. Thank you.

All the best + talk soon,
Kev

Ambivalent Soap 004

A sturdy new lo-fi imprint of old-format fever named Ambivalent Soap has just released Running Point’s Sharpen The Past on microcassette, numbered 004 for the label in an edition of 30 copies. The music was recorded in one day (January 18th), then carved into specific form over several nights spread out over several weeks. Even blurry vision takes a little time to focus.

We’re offering up the free digital as the physical copies are already out of print. I hope you enjoy.
