Recorded in-between tours, Ghostory is School of Seven Bells most collaborative effort yet. It exemplifies a fervent progression of SVIIB’s growth as artists, preserving the common themes found on their last two releases but exposing them in different fashions.
The album also comes with a story in mind; the tale of a young girl named Lafaye and the ghosts that surround her life. Within Ghostory, the story of both Lafaye’s and the band’s journey is told.
“This is what I feel and see when listening to music.”—Cina
Originally started in 2007, Michael Cina’s Sound Motion Series is an ongoing exploration into the inherent connection between music and the visual arts. As with the work of several abstractionists before him, the series is iterative and marked by the subtle variations that are the hallmark of an engaged mind whittling away at a persistent idea, honing it ever closer to a point.

Mux Mool’s, sophomore album, Planet High School, is out now. PHS certainly differs from Skulltaste, Mux Mool’s debut from 2010. It’s funkier, more confident, and more comfortable. It sounds less like someone trying to prove a point by arguing and more like someone trying to prove a point by just being who they are. It’s leading by example, sonically speaking.
In 2007, Ryan Elliott was so enamored with Donnacha Costello’s 12” Color Series, that he created a mix comprised entirely of the catalog using original songs and his own edits.
The mix has since been hiding out on a few blogs and our iTunes libraries. Now, following his 2011 Spectral 12” Kicking Up, you can enjoy the mix posted below.
