One of my favorite local sound artists, Feltbattery, has a new album coming out on Migration Media that does for bees what It Had Wings did for birds. I can't believe that the conceptual payload of "the birds & the bees" is landing upon me only as I type these words. Too bad I didn't think of it before writing an article about Behold a Golden Throng for Shuffle Magazine, which nevertheless manages to offer a look behind the scenes of Ben Trueblood's rich and fascinating process.
Shuffle's out now in two mini-issues:
Part I: http://ow.ly/2Oruq
Part II: http://ow.ly/2Orv5
Feltbattery's in no. 2. (N.B.--The album's release has been delayed until this winter.)
