Seattle's Appalachian Yard Art has been building an impressive catalog of lo-fi psych folk oddities over the last few years. Fussy is their most concise and unified effort so far—nine surprising, noisy, and often sublime songs. Minimalist outsider mini-epics.

Released on Antiquated Future Records. Listen on Bandcamp.

"Their fractured folk rhythms are laced with a spacey rock minimalism that underscores the band’s ability to take even the most disparate of sounds and merge them into a cohesive and fascinating string of chords and tones...Fussy presents Appalachian Yard Art as a band of uncommon resourcefulness and endless imagination." - The Tape Deck

In What Are You Raising Them For?, Tim Devin looks at the counterculture shifts of the '60s and '70s and sees how it changed the way people parented their kids. Using '70s hippie literature and the experiences of adults raised in nontraditional settings as source material, Tim Devin examines where counterculture parenting ideas were coming from, how well they were working, and what we can take away from it all today.

Even-handed and curious, What Are You Raising Them For? is a great read cover to cover. One of my favorite zines of the year.
