As the fall days grow shorter, we want to highlight top features of a busy and exciting late summer and early fall! We’ve barely had time to slow down and take a breath, let alone acknowledge the fine contributions of our talented writers & photographers who we now call friends. Check out the many fine original reviews, essays and photography we’ve been excited to feature including the most buzzed about, written by Phil Locke, Tony Hinds, Alex Gougeon, Chris Dagonas and guest contributors Carrie Musgrave (ace photographer who jumped right into the pit for TURF 2015) and Ola’s Kool Kitchen (who guest posted with our first ever audio interview feature here!) all of whom who really helped round things out in our continuing mission to shout from the rooftops about new, authentic, relevant music, festivals, events, film, and underrated heroes as we approach the end of our first year of production! Thank you to all our contributors (who stretch from the north of England to the south, from coast to coast in Canada, and the U.S., our readers, generous subjects and everyone who’s shared, commented or given us tips or feedback. We’ve got lots more original, diverse, in depth and useful coverage on music and culture to come in the final months of 2015! Announcements to follow.
