Friday Wrap-up 10/24/14

Interesting week here at the office, with new shows in process and lots of work accompanied by heavy rains for the last few days. This makes for very wet trails up and down the hills and a new chill in the house to get used to. Every day the heat is left off is another bunch of oil/dollars/climate change addition saved, but it does make for chill mornings.

Here's a new Fieldwire video playlist, the first in quite a while. It features new music from the Who, Sleater-Kinney, Daniel Lanois, a selection of various music from around the world, a strange BBC special with Siouxsie & The Banshees while Robert Smith of the Cure was in the group, a U.S. Maple documentary, and to round things out a recent live Merzbow set on Boiler Room. Ah, variety!



Look for a new music playlist as well as a streaming set later in the weekend, and updates on content and layout on the home site soon.

Here are a few links to peruse in all your spare time:
