>Aaron Frazer - Introducing (Pink Glass Vinyl Edition) - VINYL LP
Aaron Frazer (of Durand Jones & The Indications) is pleased to announce his debut album, Introducing..., out January 8th, 2021 via Dead Oceans and Easy Eye Sound, alongside lead single, “Over You,” and its accompanying video. A testament to his wide-ranging influence and deep gratitude for his musical community, Introducing... is both loving and gracious, critical without losing hope, and a showcase of a young artist on a seriously soulful ascent. Working with producer Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys, Frazer expertly calibrates consciousness-raising, as previewed by early single “Bad News,” and the desire to be enveloped by love. Where previous songs were written in a partial state of turmoil, Frazer’s debut LP shows maturation and range.

>MAGGOT BRAIN ISSUE #3
This issue is another burner, with features on Funkadelic—for our cover story, we dive into the genesis and continued import of our namesake, with a lengthy feature by Detroit music journo Ana Gavrilovska on the mind-melting fifty year-old Funkadelic masterpiece 'Maggot Brain.' We also have rare photos of the White Stripes live at Paychecks Lounge in Hamtramck Michigan from 1999 by noted photographer Doug Coombe.There's a mini-roundtable discussion on gay rights pioneer Morris Knight and San Francisco's brilliant hippie queer activist pranksters the Cockettes and the must see pages with Rachel Leah Gallo's eight-page bio-comic on the delightful and obscure kitchen-folk singer Connie Converse. Also features on: Fortune Records, Priscilla Ermel, Tav Falco, Nathaniel Russell, John Brannon and much, much more.

Long ago, a recurring theme was to weave a thread thru...

Oh, never mind—this iteration of a long-running joke between Nat Russell and myself finally took a beautiful, surreal, evolution when Justin Shimp (of
BrainTwins) began sprinkling the image in the LUNA music analog times #1. The rest is history?

And just like John Waters'-'Role Models' paper edition of his hilarious book—we thoughtfully printed this on the brightest, most absorbent, white T we could find...

MONTHLY D.J. SET / SOUL VIBRATION SESSION
"Movers & Groovers,
My family and friends at LUNA music in Indianapolis host my monthly DJ event the
Soul Vibration Session. I love this event and it is one of my favorite moments of my month. With the rise and spread of COVID-19, Luna has closed the storefront to the public but they are still shipping music and other goodies to customers! Hit them up and get your music and music accessories game tight.
This mix is my monthly 4-hour DJ session. I recorded this at my home base and ran through a range of tunes just like I would if I was at LUNA. You can listen to it right here and it will also be sent out on my podcast channel. Enjoy it freely and share it freely as well. I hope y’all are living well outchea in these wild times. I love you all.
The P.E.A.C.E."—Mr. Kinetik
