Puget Sound: Own a little piece of K history. We’re selling a bunch of our sweet studio tables on Craigslist (maybe the best crafting tables ever).
Kendl Winter is recording one of my favorite songs down in Dub Narcotic right now. Wish you were here.
Direct from the Pink Elephant’s Graveyard, the Maxines and Calvin Johnson play a Girl Trouble song at Dub Narcotic Studio! The documentary film Strictly Sacred needs your Kickstarter support. Write a check today!
THIS LINK WILL TELL YOU HOW TO ENTER. (This is where the traditional legalese disclaimer text would go, but we haven’t got any, because we’re K). GOOD LUCK!
It’s another K Blog Trivia Giveaway!
This week, the question is coming from Bob Schwenkler in the Dub Narcotic Studio:
What decade does Arrington de Dionyso’s record-cutting lathe hail from? (hint: it’s also in the Pink Elephant’s Graveyard!)
As always, the answer can be found on the K weblog. The deadline is Monday, July 23rd and your answer - along with your name and address - needs to be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Oh and the prize, duh! This week, the prize is a copy of the July/August issue of The Believer magazine, which is accompanied by “Love Songs for Lamps”, the mixtape Calvin curated for the magazine (which was mastered here, at Dub Narcotic!)
Calvin found this polaroid during our office reorganizing party. Phil Elverum at Dub Narcotic Studio in Olympia, Washington.
Sam from Dub Narcotic Studio’s (downstairs) K song pick of the day.
“What’s A Dollar?” - Chain & The Gang - Down With Liberty…Up With Chains!
LAKE practiced their cover of “Hungry Heart” down in the studio this week. Dream boats, much?
Video taken by Joel Brazzel.
Joel caught The Hive Dwellers in the middle of a jam session. “Tell Tale Heart,” with Calvin Johnson, Gabriel Will and Evan Hashi. The Hive Dwellers are totally hitting the road tomorrow for their six week tour. Check out the dates! Dance hard at a show near you.
We just found this in the basement (Dub Narcotic Studio), underneath some things—Calvin’s print-out of the lyrics for Ruby Fray’s “Mint Ice Cream.” (In case you want to try out the harmonies for yourself)

LAKE and Phil were in the studio yesterday! Man, look at those guys!
Jeremy Jay and his band have been practicing down in Dub Narcotic Studio all this week, from early in the morning until late at night. They’ve got an amazing work ethic. It’s been great listening to them for the past few days, but now they’re heading out to tour the United States. Tonight they’re playing in Portland, OR, and then tomorrow they’ll be back here in Olympia to play at Midnight Sun. If they’re coming to your city, check them out!
