Arkm Foam & Andy Allen
Music Songs with Sam & Bill
Friendship Tapes is a small batch music label mostly focusing on cassette releases. It is based out of Boston/Western MA and run by woodwind player and sound artist Andy Allen. Friendship Tapes, like most small independent labels essentially functions as a curated series of music releases illustrating the friends and favorite musicians of its founder.
Chris Cretella plays improvised solo guitar music.
Mwchins is the field recordings/sound art project of Matt Robidoux(Speedy Ortiz, King St. Manor) of Western MA.
Arkm Foam(Peace, Loving, Whitehaus Family Record) + Andy Allen is an improvised duo drawing equally from Boston's "lower case" improv scene and noise music.
Music Songs with Sam and Bill (Sam Lisabeth and Billy McShane) is on the fringe of current musical comedy. They have an ability to make mundane things and middle class life seem like the absurd. Some of their songs could pass as children's music in their simplicity, yet they are always twisted and hilarious.
Stunningly beautiful music lightly tethered to several disparate traditions, but free of the trappings of any of them. Hilarious, tender, and overflowing with the kind of careful detail that will keep you returning over and over again. Based out of Boston, cellist Katie McShane and fiddle/banjo player Mia Friedman join to form the duo Lichen.
