I recall my final months at KZUU, way back in mid-2006. What time I spent in the old studio allowed me to discover bands that even today remain among my favorites. Leaving was hard, as I felt so connected with the place. Why this reminiscence?

Javier Suarez (Craft Spells, Yarn Owl) is back with a new video from his solo project Gathered Ghosts. “Two Apples In A Cherry Tree” finds Suarez taking on some light Craft Spells influence (as opposed to the soft and slow favorite “Went To You” we wrote about a while back) with some solid dreamy jangle… Continue reading Gathered Ghosts: Two Apples In A Cherry Tree
