purple spectre 700

by Mark Anderson – What is jazz? And what makes it good? These are questions I feel the best jazz musicians in the business ask themselves constantly while pushing a medium that exists on the bleeding edge of music. Of course, all answers to the question are entirely objective, butRead More →

For our fourth episode of Band Basics, we asked Mike Zimmerlich of 80/20 Records to join us in the studio. As the co-founder and President of 80/20, we talk shop on running a record label, submitting your music, contacting the press, plus a whole lot more.

Matthew Reveles and Fancy Cloud are back with their new, 2019 album, Split.

Released through Phoenix’s President Gator Records, this is the latest proper album from Reveles/Cloud since 2013’s New Year, New Jacket (also released through President Gator) and the first release for the label this year. Plus, after keeping us barely satiated over the years with singles released through his Soundcloud, it’s great to have an actual full length from Reveles again — something not seen since a decade ago with his stellar We’ll Meet Halfway album…Read More →
