RESIST FEAR ASSIST LOVE T-Shirt!

>NATHANIEL RUSSELL RESIST FEAR ASSIST LOVE T-Shirt
MONDAY 01 JUNE 2020

a note from Nathaniel Russell
Here's what I wrote in November 2016, and it is still true:
"i made this drawing last wednesday mostly because i didn't know what to do with myself and out of a need to feel connected in some weird confusing times. what i mean is: try your best, be there for each other, help those who need a hand, try to see a bigger picture, and live the life that you will not regret. act out of love, not fear, be an ally to those who need help. it's just a drawing, but i believe in the power of drawings, of words, to connect us with each other. sometimes that helps and sometimes that can be a good start."

Here we are printing a new edition of the RESIST FEAR ASSIST LOVE T-Shirt.
The RESIST/ASSIST image is being screen printed by our friends at Crystal Graphics—with a split fountain of red and blue inks, on a Butter Yellow Comfort Colors 100% Cotton T-Shirt.
Each package will also include a few extras and surprises, naturally...

As always, 100% of the money, after printing and shipping costs, will be donated to local charitable organizations. While this project is not affiliated with or endorsed by any specific charitable organizations—we have chosen to spread the proceeds between: 
No Questions Asked food pantryThe Julian Center, and The Bail Project.

The focus of this edition is to raise as much money as possible for these organizations, so we will be taking pre-orders only and printing only as many shirts as have been reserved. These will not be sold in stores or available at a later date. Look at this as a way to support the important work these organizations are doing and the shirt as a nice bonus.

I am so grateful to my friends at
Crystal Graphics, Nat Swope, Todd and Katie Robinson, and everyone at LUNA music for their time and efforts in making this project a reality once more.
This is a family affair, and I am so thankful.

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

the LUNA pick(s)-of-the-moment...

>Mac Miller - Circles (Clear Vinyl edition) VINYL LP
Conceived as a sister album to 2018's full length Swimming, Circles was completed with the assistance of Jon Brion, with whom Miller worked on Swimming and had been working together on Circles at the time of his passing. While sonically distinctly different than its predecessor, Circles features many of the hallmarks for which Swimming was critically acclaimed upon its release - Miller further realizing his singing voice in addition to rapping, live instrumentation and earnest, confessional lyrical content.
Stacks Image 11875
>PRINCE - One Night Alone...Solo Piano & Voice (Purple Vinyl Edition) VINYL LP
Prince's twenty-fifth studio album, One Nite Alone... finds the artist on acoustic piano and vocals (save for occasional rhythm from drummer John Blackwell and the ambient cooing of Divinity and Majesty, Prince's pet doves). The intimate affair includes favorites like "U're Gonna C Me" and a cover of "A Case Of U", written by one of Prince's biggest musical influences, Joni Mitchell.

>Everything But the Girl - Temperamental (Black Vinyl Edition) 2-LP
Double vinyl LP pressing and Half-Speed Mastering by Miles Showell (Ben's long-time mastering engineer of choice...) at Abbey Road—this is the best presentation of the superb, final, full-length chapter from Ben and Tracey—not to be missed, if only for "Downhill Racer"...

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?

>Neil Young - Homegrown (LIMITED, Indie Version w/EXCLUSIVE print) LP
Neil Young puts it best: ''This album is the unheard bridge between Harvest and Comes a Time''.
Recorded between June 1974 and January 1975, Homegrown was intended to come out in 1975 before Neil cancelled the release. The album has remained unreleased until now, achieving a legendary status among Neil Young fans in the process.

The album is made up of twelve Neil Young songs, of which seven are previously unreleased - ''Separate Ways,'' ''Try,'' ''Mexico,'' ''Kansas,'' We Don't Smoke It No More,'' ''Vacancy'' and ''Florida'' (a spoken word narration). Also included are the first recordings of ''Love Is A Rose,'' ''Homegrown,'' ''White Line, ''Little Wing,'' and ''Star Of Bethlehem'' - different versions of which would all later appear on other Neil Young albums.

Neil plays solo on some tracks (guitar, piano and harmonica), and is joined by a band of friends on other tracks, including Levon Helm, Ben Keith, Karl T Himmel, Tim Drummond, Emmylou Harris and Robbie Robertson.
