mkf gets legit press

i am completely blown away right now. i woke up from a nap. checked my bandcamp stats and noticed a crazy spike in the amount of plays. someone had embedded a track on their site and followed it to an extensive review of my music up on bandcamp. it is so ridiculously surreal for me considering i’m doing nothing to try to be found. (thanks heaps, sad panda!) so i just made a facebook page for myself and have decided to go in half full swing with this, hah.

here’s the link.

the bocket store!

sarah bocket, a really talented friend of mine, made her craft fair debut last week at renegade la, and it was such a treat to see a stash of her amazing hand-painted pieces in the bocket booth. basically, she finds wooden objects at thrift stores and paints on them. simple concept, sure. but when you see these guys in person, wow is the only thing you can say.

make sure to check out the bocket store on etsy.
