Hello strangers. Been tied up with getting our label onto the digital distribution thang, among other things. so the blog has been neglected. A week friday, Sept. 19th, is the beginning of Festival Boreal, situated by the coast of the town called Los Silos, Tenerife. The festival came into being several years ago, born at the unveiling of a skeleton of whale which oversees the spot where the event now takes place. On hand will be several local acts of various persuasions and textures, and countless activities, from the artistic, holistic, environmentally focused and the adventurous. I’ll be doing the closing set on Saturday night, which kinda became a tradition for awhile. The festival also returns to the coastal site, after a couple years up in the local square.
So I sign off with none other than…..’Back for another one’ by Casey Veggies Feat. Tyler, The Creator – Odd Future
