Check out the second premiere from It’s Psychedelic Baby Magazine, featuring a mind-bending collection of tracks from Tim Cornelius, Martyn Bates, Alek Erickson, Tom Segear, and Sticky Foster and Usurper.

We’ve also received some great international press in the last few weeks, including features from Barcelona’s Playground Mag and Cyprus’s Η Καθημερινή (Kathimerini). Ming Lee Newcomb wrote a feature for Live for Live Music about Tim Carbone and Lou Rogai’s new Wake duo Cedar Sparks, and included a brief history of David Nelson and Phil Lesh’s interest in Finnegans Wake. Kelly Buckley wrote in The Echo about Matt Battle and Rich Chapman’s contributions to Waywords and Meansigns. Eric Wagner gave a shout out to Mr. Smolin’s latest recordings, and Stuart Fergusoncouk wrote up the project with particular interest in the forthcoming contribution from Tenement & Temple.
We’re also quite pleased to be included in University College Dublin’s Joyce Today, highlighting the latest adaptations and transmutations of Joyce.
And in case you missed it… Check out project director Derek Pyle’s latest blog posts with the James Joyce Centre, highlighting our previous contributors who return to the project with new music this year (part one and part two). Derek Pyle also wrote a piece for Rio Matchett’s awesome new Joyce zine, The Agenbite.
