Archives – End of the Year
Fast forward to now and Locrian is still going and Steve’s resume grew even more impressive (Pan-American and Fennesz being just a few names on the list). So upon seeing a recent tweet about albums that helped him to get through 2020, we couldn’t help but ask for a list – the one we invite you to share and spread around for good luck/awesomest year ahead.
And once you’re done with the list, don’t forget to check out some of Steve’s own work from last year. There’s self-titled tape by Apiary (Tapeworm) and The Key by Cleared (Touch), his duo with Michael Vallera.
