The Archives: July
Once a month, The Spec editors will compile a list of articles published on The Spec in years past. The Archives is an opportunity for SPECtators, both old and new, to explore content that may have gone under the radar.
Check out some of our favorites from the past…
“What I Learned at Bandcamp: The Lymbs,” originally published July 24, 2014
The Lymbs is a band worth checking out. It’s kind of a funny story about how I got in touch with them. My good friend Mark (hi Mark!) who lives in New Mexico is the hairstylists for one of the band members’ moms. He told her about The Spec. She told him about her son’s music. Shortly after, Alexis was interviewing them.
“Reading Between the Lines: Recent Books by Musicians,” originally published July 8, 2013
If you’re in need of book recommendations, this post is for you. It’s highlights some published works by artists ranging from hip-hop’s Saul Williams to rock ‘n’ roll’s Henry Rollins.
“Bogan Via Raises Money for Music Video on Indiegogo,” originally published July 30, 2012
It has been wonderful to follow the progression of Bogan Via over the years. The band is now playing sold-out shows and living in Los Angeles.
“Alex’s Trochut’s Binary Prints Give Musicians, DJs Day to Night Looks,” originally published July 29, 2013
I’m still fascinated by these photos that completely change depending on the lighting in the room.
