Do you guys know about Asthmatic Kitty? It’s a record label and the brain child of Sufjan Stevens and Lowell Brams. They have an amazing list and it includes, My Brightest Diamond, Castanets, Chris Schlarb, Grampall Jookabox, Shapes and Sizes, Rafter, Liz Janes, Half-handed Cloud and more. They have a great website and they do something called Sidebar where people write things! Imagine that. A record label that lets people write things!
Arthur Phillips wrote a nice piece about cover songs (a personal favorite topic of mine) and the contradictory feelings they can provoke. Read it here.
