Ryan McCardle, co-founder of Furious Hooves, was recently interviewed by a really cool up and coming art magazine called Forge. They talked about his design work throughout the music industry specifically as the art director at Captured Tracks, but also his influences and a little bit on Furious Hooves. You can check out what they have to say below or go read it online here.
We just finished editing Issue 4! Much like our last issue, we somehow ended up with an enormous 100 page magazine. Finishing this issue was quite an endeavor due to how busy we’ve been since the Brooklyn Zine Fest and with school ending for the year, but because of all of the amazing artists who contributed to this issue we were super persistent with getting it done as soon as possible. Despite the slight delay, we’re really happy with how it all turned out, and we really enjoyed doing all of the interviews and collecting all of the submissions for it. We hope that you can enjoy this issue as much as we have enjoyed making it!
Issue 4: SENTIMENTAL includes submissions by Emanuel Couloumy, Kimberly Salt, Joëlle de Vries, Jason Lambidis, Alice Antoinette Lena Klyukina, Justine Kistler, Hana Haley, Anna Urik, Eddie Perrote, Samantha Blumenfeld, Shreya Gupta, Jess & Beyon, Andriana Nikolaidou, and Emilie Gleason. Issue 4 also includes interviews with Ryan McCardle, Grant Singer, Richard Kern, and Ray Masaki!
Sunglow, aka Daniel B. Lynch, is an experimental electronic artist currently taking residence in Savannah, GA where he’s been flooding the streets, parks and bars with his easily danceable, experimental electronic / weirdo-pop sounds.

Pre-Order from our webstore.
Bedroom: Franklin, Tennessee resident, Noah Kittinger’s, aptly named bedroom dream-pop project. Bedroom manifested itself in Noah’s ninth-grade school year with his debut EP coming out a year later.
Grow: Written and recorded entirely by Kittinger, this is Bedroom’s sophomore full-length on Furious Hooves - It is also the label’s first album to debut on their extended-run division, Sixth Man. It was released on vinyl, cassette, and online today - May 20th, 2014. “We All Need Something” and “Drift Away” feature guest vocals from Jade Lawhon.
Mean thoughts: Grow is an album that serves as an anthem for twenty-somethings in its hazed ambivalence toward life. Electric guitars twang and echo beneath neatly arranged acoustic riffs and frequently meet hushed synth tones. Bedroom is an artist with a knack for calling things what they are and it is exciting to think what will grow out of this release.
Happy release day to Bedroom. His sophomore album Grow came out today and if you pre-ordered the LP on limited edition vinyl or cassette, you should be getting them in the coming days! If you haven’t ordered either those yet, you can do so here: music.furioushooves.com
Bedroom continues their tour through the southeast, headed to Orlando, Tampa and Nashville next. See those dates here.
Thanks for all your support and stay rad!

Tired Moth: Southwest Virginia’s Luke Anderson is a stairwell-gazer who draws inspiration from cinema and a love of indie music to create dark-psychedelic productions.

The second EP from Virginia lo-fi / basementgazer Tired Moth expands upon what makes his sound so great: the mystery, the darkness, the Lynch-like atmosphere… it’s all here and in full steam. The Brain Doesn’t Rust brings the eerie moods up a couple notches.
Tired Moth writes/records the majority of his music in the basement/attic of his 1950s post-war home. If it’s not done there then it’s during his night shift at a nearby roadside hotel.
