    • BENEATH THESE IDLE TIDES
      Myke Atkinson uses this moniker as his vehicle for dense, vibrating layers of guitar sound. In a live setting, you find yourself immersed in his world. His latest recording project is a set of discs made to played in any order and combination, suavely avoiding the synchronization problem as he goes. Not to be missed, as always.

    • CROCKER/DADGE DUO
      Since the release of their 2005 album Humming & Crackling, multi-instrumentalists Jay Crocker and Chris Dadge have mostly played together as Jay's solo project; as well as in the odd improv setting, they also play together in Ryan Bourne's brand new band. This is their improvised duo music, three years down the line.
