In 2008 I had the pleasure of reviewing Elisa Luu's Floating Sounds EP, released by net label Phantom Channel (which has now mutated from a label into a blog, written by Michael Henaghan). My label Hidden Shoal went on to release Elisa Luu's debut album Chromatic Sigh in 2009, with a second album due in 2012.
In 2008 I also began writing for another website called [sic] Magazine, which had just been started by Brett Holdaway. My first review published by [sic] was Deerhoof's Offend Maggie, which also appeared on Luna Kafe.
