Line Drawings LP front and back 1000px tall

FET Press proudly presents a fully collaborative release project…our most ambitious project to date…Line Drawings. A joint venture showcasing the work from a community of musicians, across several mediums and labels. Put best by the artists themselves:

“Line Drawings is our attempt at creating a community of musicians that challenge each other to make deliberate music. Born from a range of frustrations, the line initially served as a divider, separating purposeful music from aimless music.”

The Musicians:
Joe Houpert, Josh Mason, Nathan McLaughlin, Cody Yantis
Mary Lattimore, Anne Guthrie, Olli Aarni, Norm Chambers, Chris Koelle, Brad Rose

Mastered by Erich Steiger
Artwork by Chris Koelle
