ON LOVE AND PRACTICE...By ADDISON BALE
On the work of Spurge Carter
I met Spurge at his home studio where we talked for an hour and twenty minutes on record. As we dug into questions about how writing informs his practice and how his music bleeds into educational initiatives, he played guitar and even shared some songs in progress with me.

On the work of Renata Pereira Lima
Renata, fresh off a flight from Mexico City, came out to Bushwick to meet me during my lunch break on a cold and cloudless autumn day. We sat down for a meal of Japanese curry, coffee, and chocolate chip cookies outside of a small restaurant and took off our masks.
