Using music as a springboard, this collection of 16 essays navigates an enormous range of subjects, with each one uniquely & thoughtfully driven by 1 of Gordon & Gleeson’s handpicked artists.

It’s a long overdue (& thoroughly welcome) antidote to tired, male-centric visions of music.

“A collection of music writing, but in the loosest sense. Here, music is the soil in which all manner of stories take seed & bloom”- The Guardian
