I’m happy to announce the end of my winter hibernation from blogging with this post.
Over the past 3 months, me and 15 other blogs have been working together to create Portals, a collaborative venture into sight, sound, hand holding and skipping.
Okay, maybe not hand holding and skipping… YET. But soon. REAL soon.
Beyond just the usual “co-premieres” and “tebowing” that other blogs offer, Portals will also be concentrating on live shows, and more inter-blog collaboration than you could shake a stick at.
Click the link above for a glimpse of Portals being born, then click the picture below for a link to our first mixtape, featuring exclusive tracks from Flashing Red Lights, Rai Callum, Lands & People, Jessica Jalbert, and many more.

Daily Doses: Gracie x Steffaloo “Quilts” (2011) Label: Self-Released
Los Angeles’ Steffaloo is on a mission to play with every electronic producer from this coast, to that coast and everything in between. And you’ll hear no complaints from me about it, because every track is just so good!
Here, recalling some of last summers musical bedroom antics, New York’s Gracie combines with Steffaloo for a single that spreads out like a sonic oil spill, soaking everything in it’s path with a layer of reverb and glistening distant vocals.
With collaborations like these, who needs a solo project?
