So: God help me, I started a Tumblr page.
Specifically, I wanted to do something focusing on the one piece of record-related minutiae that I’ve always been fond of:Â the bits of writing carved into the margins of records. Sometimes inside jokes, sometimes offbeat references, sometimes something else entirely. Ergo: Lock Grooves & Lit, which will be updated a few times a week until…well, I run out of records with things carved into the margins.
Also covering spaces where literature and music overlap, I chatted with the fine Austin/Brooklyn group Fergus & Geronimo for Band Booking, a new feature at Vol.1 where musicians discuss the books they love. Their album Unlearn ain’t half-bad, either.
