Baptized in hurt
Resurrected in flames
CYNE returns. On the heels of the rush of Water For Mars and the resplendence of 2008's Pretty Dark Things, Cise Star, Enoch, and Speck tell a new story in classic mixtape form. Nearly an hour of brand new vocal tracks, seriously addictive beat vignettes, evolved samples, and the story of Laserteeth Killmore.
There's Earth, there's Space, and then there's CYNE.
Featuring art by Justin Lovato.

Our dear friends at Hometapes came to us with a very special request...
In preparation for the release of Megafaun's forthcoming record, Hometapes sifted through hours of video footage from the band's recording sessions. They asked that we help with putting together a small glimpse into the process and effort behind this outstanding album.
The Falcon Hawksome team was humbled to be involved, and couldn't be more pleased with the final result.
Be sure to check out the amazing "Carolina Days" video, made by our lovely friends at Sirocco Research Labs.
A while back, Speck was fortunate enough to collaborate with 12ozProphet for the launch of their highly anticipated t-shirt line, showcasing the work of the legendary graffiti pioneer, Futura. Speck provided the score to a 12ozProphet-produced documentary about the artist.
Although it's been some months since the t-shirt series was released, the video is something that the Falcon Hawksome team is very proud to have been a part of...
Not only has Futura always been a major creative influence, but this opportunity brought longtime friends and collaborators together for the first time.

Very excited to be reading EmiTown! We went to the Stumptown Comic Fest at the Oregon Convention Center this last Sunday and it was a blast! I was so excited to meet such a big group of talented people, having the chance to talk and see the faces of the artists makes their work even richer and the connection even more powerful. Hopefully I will be posting links to other work that I saw and loved, for now I can't wait to dive on this one.
The picture up there is from Emi's etsy shop. Please say hi!

Most of these records were found in living rooms, markets, or secondhand stores, on our most recent trip to Maracaibo...
Silvio Rodriguez -- Sueño Con Serpientes
(from "Dias Y Flores" 1975)
A beautiful song by one of the founding Cuban nueva trova artists, popularized during the 70's, in Venezuela, for his protest/political folk songs.
Angel Rada -- Carillon
(from "Upadesa" 1980)
Phenomenal, mostly unknown, Cuban-Venezuelan synth musician, who started the 80's Ethnosonic movement, after a visit to Kling Klang Studio.
Chelique Sarabia -- Orinoco Rio Abajo
(from "La Garza Negra Y De Hierro" 1975)
Celebrating the Venezuelan nationalization of iron and oil, this album continues to explore Chelique's "Revolución Electrónica."
Vytas Brenner -- Madrugada
(from "Hermanos" 1974)
A pioneer of the Venezuelan Progressive scene, Brenner's music is a hybrid of electronic and traditional instrumentation.
Grupo Folklorico Y Experimental Nuevayorquino -- Aguemimo

This 70's Bronx-based Afro-Puerto Rican/Cuban collective centered their recordings around improvisation and traditional music.
