*The long running Papercut Zine Library in Somerville, MA had some pipes burst in this winter's New England storms and are raising some funds to save their library.
*New music to listen to: The first single from Karl Blau's country album has arrived. Stereogum premiered the new album from Reighnbeau. Coin Locker Kid has a new album of brilliantly odd indie industrial. And Sister Grotto just released an incredible new album of minimalist songscapes called You Don't Have to be a House to be Haunted.
*And in music reviews: The new Washboard Abs album has already received some early kind reviews from GoldFlakePaint, ThrdCoast, and Wake the Deaf. Sister Grotto & Braeyden Jae's collaboration on AF Records got a rave (and kind of intense) review on Cassette Gods. And the new Orange Cake Mix (the first release from our pals at Why the Tapes Play) was reviewed on Half-Gifts.
*The Olympia Pop Rocks podcast just celebrated their first year on the air and had Poppet on the birthday podcast.

Corespondents just took their otherworldly psych-surf instrumentals on tour through Mexico and are now back in their hometown of Seattle getting ready to do a live score for the Japanese horror classic House as part of Northwest Film Forum's Puget Soundtrack series.

*Basic Paper Airplane #10 received a glowing review in the new issue of Broken Pencil.
*Zach (author of Love is Not Constantly Wondering if You're Making the Biggest Mistake of Your Life, etc.) was recently the special guest on the Simpsons Podcast.
*And L.A. Zine Fest organizer Rhea Tepp has a new Experience Nothing Together subscription that we highly recommend everyone take part in.

Until next month,
Antiquated Future
