Zines

In this fabulous issue of Women in Sound zine (the "Mothership: Birth and Labor" issue), Danielle Maggio delves into the genius and legacy of funk legend Betty Davis. There are in-depth interviews with the one-and-only Osa Atoe (of Shotgun Seamstress/No More Fiction), Jade Payne (Aye Nako, The Silent Barn), Lauren Goshinski (DJ Boolean/VIA), Missy Thangs (Fidelitorium), Fielded, Jessica Thompson (Coast Mastering), Alexis Icon, and Marielle V Jakobsons (Electronic Arts/Thrill Jockey Records).

Plus: Exercises in field recording from Shannon Kerrigan. The organizers of Vancouver, BC's Tidal ~ Signal experimental music festival reflect on their experiences. And playlists for women in sound by women in sound.

64 pages, half-letter size.

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.

54 pages, half-letter size.

One of our favorite zines around, Women in Sound is always packed with interesting discussions from across the musical map. This time around, there's conversations with: synthesizer pioneer Suzanne Ciani, legendary punk label founder Lisa Fancher (Frontier Records), Amy Dragon (Telegraph Mastering), Marta Salogni (recording & mixing engineer for Bjork and Frank Ocean), Pamela Dwyer (live sound engineer, CKUT), Natalie Hernandez (Death By Audio Effects Pedals), Amanda Davis (live sound engineer for Janelle Monae and Tegan + Sara).

Plus a mixer primer, playlists, and more. 52 pages, half-letter size.

A Zine-Zine Proposition takes a trash bargain-bin romance novel and reconstructs a loose story using only its most ridiculous sentences. A fun, hilarious, and nonsensical read.
