Mick Barr

Mick Barr, the man behind/in front of Ocrilim, Orthrelm, and Octis, has a new solo album, Coiled Malescence, due September 13 via Safety Meeting. The album, which I haven’t heard but am expecting to blindly love, is available for pre-order right now. It reportedly “shreds.” (via Pitchfork)

CHOCOLATE GRINDER is our audio/visual section, with an emphasis on the lesser heard and lesser known. We aim to dig deep, but we’ll post any song or video we find interesting, big or small.
