descriptions, reviews, &c.

"DISTRICT OF NOISE VOL.5 -- this time it's a CD only. We had it manufactured in a printed 4-panel flat wallet, so it's not a big-ticket item. But the music is top-shelf. 20 tracks / 20 artists, all from DC. It's a great cross-section of what's going on now, that's the idea. The thing runs like 75 minutes. It's a full meal."-Sonic Circuits
