Despite our archive documenting otherwise (this was in order for us to stand a chance of immediately qualifying as a Hype Machine-endorsed blog upon our launch), our web domain renewal statement just reminded us all at Pen HQ that today is in fact our 1st birthday. Therefore, we felt what better to time to remind you how to stay abreast of what we’re up to, while embedding some new tracks that have caught our attention.
Firstly, if you’re a fellow Tumblr blogger, you can link your site to The Pen by clicking the ‘Follow’ button in the top right hand corner of this page or alternatively, every post published feeds a notification through to our Twitter page. If it’s the music you’re more interested in, you can follow us via our Hype Machine account or we have a Soundcloud page where we collect, upload and occasionally offer our favourite tracks. By clicking the Facebook ‘Like’ button above, you effectively subscribe to our Friday lunchtime newsletter, which comes in the form of a brief status update outlining what’s been covered over the course of the week. The update just scrolls down your feed and doesn’t alert you like a message or notification would.
Anyway, here’s a brand new cut from Boddika and Joy Orbison, an advance snippet of Shed's forthcoming third album, which is scheduled for release on July the 27th via Modeselektor's 50 Weapons subsidiary channel, and a free download of the opening track of John Daly's new album on the Zurich-based Drum Poet Community imprint.
