Convalescing in Braille is the excellent new album from Portland’s Crushed Stars, the solo project of Todd Gautreau. The album was produced by John Congleton (Antony and The Johnsons, St. Vincent) with Gautreau playing the instruments and with drumming from Jeff Ryan (Sarah Jaffe, Pleasant Grove).
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
