Kindercore and Telegraph's parent company, IDEA, was under pressure from Central National Bank (its primary creditor) to cut overhead and consolidate operations...
Isn't it kind of weird that Kindercore had a "parent company" with a real, live bank as a creditor? I thought it was just another flailing, maxed-out-credit-cards indie label.
I don't really have that much Kindercore stuff, but I did buy this album yesterday on Telegraph.
Speaking of Sasha Bell, I don't know if all of these fantastic Brooklyn artists are linked to what-was-formerly the Elephant 6 collective. I think a fair argument can be made, however, that the Ladybug Transistor/Essex Green/Sixth Great Lake/Sasha Bell Brooklyn scene (is it a collective yet?) has put out consistently great work. Better, I think, than the largely overrated E6 stuff.
