Announcing Michael Beharie - This One Breath C24

Very excited to announce the next W+D tape This One Breath from guitar-and-beats master Michael Beharie. Here's what Fader has to say in their preview stream of the release:
As a solo producer and guitarist, he’s also done a bunch of behind-the-scenes tinkering for some of our favorite artists in town…If you didn’t catch Reach, his recent debut album for Shinkoyo, then this 23-minute, grid-defying and globe-trotting beat epic will probably prick up your ears big time.
Check out a stream, below, and then pre-order the tape here!

Out Now! Patrick Higgins + Mivos - SQ2/Glacia

The Patrick Higgins / Mivos Quartet CD/2xLP is now available for order!

Kev Nickells at Freq.org did a nice in-depth write-up of this release, which is well worth your time to read, but for the sake of brevity, here's a summation:
Long and the short is that it’s a seriously well delivered set of ideas, with a lot more emphasis on taste applied to the given thematic material, rather than being programmatic or systematic about breaking established form with juxtapositions. In which sense, much more ‘now’ than the period historically associated with the ‘avant-garde’.
