There are several ways to stay abreast of The Pen. 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. Alternatively if you aren’t registered to Tumblr, every post published automatically sends a tweet through to my Twitter feed. If it’s the music you’re more interested in, you can follow the blog via my Hype Machine account or I have a Soundcloud page where I collect, upload and occasionally giveaway old favourites. By clicking the Facebook ‘Like’ button above, you effectively subscribe to my Friday lunchtime newsletter, which comes in the form of a status update that outlines 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 the standout track from Lusine’s forthcoming 3rd album scheduled for release via Ghostly International in February, an alternative bonus mix of the title track from the newcomer DIVA’s ‘Stabbing Paris’ EP on New Kanada, and a promotional mini-mix of the Loops Haunt ‘ZENITH’ EP on the Bristol-based, Black Acre Records. Lastly, I’ve embedded a clip of Mark Archer’s remix of Radioactive Man’s ‘Gugs’, which features on an exclusive digital remix LP that’s locked within the ‘Waits & Measures’ double-pack vinyl release. Pre-orders available now with shipment this coming Saturday.
