Today there is an unusual disc out in the world featuring recorded moments from many friends of Patient Sounds (intl), including contributions by our daughters. It is bittersweet to say goodbye to Patient Sounds. The independent publishing house is closing down after ten years. Still in their prime — STILL, Waiting — with their renegade ethos intact (read the letter). Their sounds have shaped S&S just as much as the words of the label’s founder, Matthew J. Sage. My tape collection is probably 40 percent PS. If you are in Chicago, celebrate with them tomorrow (Wednesday, August 21st) at The Hideout Inn.
A few recent releases, below, followed by the program’s tracklist.
