Bicephalic Records “Monster Series” Artwork Feature in Best of 2016

My "Monster Series" of tapes on Bicephalic Records was featured in A Closer Listen's article on the best album covers of 2016!   Here's the text I wrote regarding the covers: Theme The underlying themes sort of manifest during the process of creation. I like to work with the natural four “solar” stations or cycles (relating to seasons, directions, and stages of life).
