Ten years ago legendary John Peel died. The worlds most modest and passionate radio-dj. He sort of summed up what the term ‘Indie’ once meant.
We had the great honor to play one of the last Peel Sessions. This is “Past Machine” from the Session. It’s unreleased, yet on the “I thought I was over that”-compilation in another recording.
Valerie just finnished working on a track for an art project, that is creating the first sonic map of the city of Indianapolis. The accompanying album will be realeased in April 2014. Morr Music-mate Bernhard Fleischmann also contributed a track.
