Despite Victoria Cecilia's illness, Gliss managed to put in a solid performance at Gathering of the Clouds last night at the Walnut Room. If she indeed needed the cough drop she had half-jokingly solicited from the audience, you couldn't tell from her s ... More >>
There's nothing we like more than seeing previously unavailable albums magically reappear on the internet. It's like finding a box of forgotten old childhood pictures. Fell's records have been a bit difficult to find due to the fact that the band's label, Camera Obscura Records, based in Aust ... More >>
