In the wake of the controversy surrounding a recent viral article about spending a week "becoming a witch," Alex considers what her guide to a witchcraft practice would look like. The results are a day-by-day guide to trying out her particular variety of secular witchcraft (that she lovingly refers to as "DIY witchery").

Within: cleaning-as-cleansing, everyday altars, grounding and centering, perception and animism, correspondences, sigils, spells, divination, and more. An open and accessible zine that thinks about witchcraft in a way not often presented in print.

Every issue of Women in Sound zine is a treat, but this one is perhaps the best yet. Interviews with three of our favorites: Mirah Zeitlyn (as in, indie-pop goddess Mirah), Laetitia Tamko (of Vagabon), and legendary Prince recording engineer Susan Rogers (!?!). It's nuts.

If that's not enough, there's also interviews with Dana Wachs (of Vorhees), Rachel Alina, Felix Walworth (of Told Slant), TRNSGNDR/VHS, and Leslie Gaston-Bird.

Plus a how-to piece on being a monitor engineer, and a editor Madeleine Campbell writes about taking a chance and hitting the road on tour.

User Not Found is a pocket-sized chapbook on social media and life in the digital age. In a single, long-form lyric essay, Felicity explores our collective addiction from a variety of angles. It's a many-layered joyride of a think-piece. Highly recommended.

"Prompted by a sequence of discouraging internet encounters, Felicity Fenton attempts to free herself from the tendrils of an online world we know, but struggle to look away from. She evaluates the endless distractions of being tethered to her device and all that comes with it: email, spam, texting, taking pictures, and social media (aka 'the walls'). In lyrical prose that swerves into dream-like mirage, hilarious thoughts, social observations, and unwavering sadness, User Not Found is a powerful essay that is all too relatable."
