Joe is a multidisciplinary artist that runs the label MOSS ARCHIVE out of Worcester, and is a member of Looks Realistic and Gay Shapes. He also releases solo material under the Bastian Void and Homeowner aliases.

This list was originally posted on my label’s blog a few days ago. I’ve never made a ‘best of’ list before, but I found the process of digging back over the year for highlights to be very a positive, almost therapeutic experience. A lot of cool things happened this year, and a lot of great music came out. I’m thankful for all of it. This is what makes life worth living! So, in no particular order, here are my favorite things that happened in 2014.
