Joel Hood: Artist You Should Know

Posted August 30, 2014 by | 0 Comments | 300 views]

His work sounds like the work of a person who listened to nothing but Air France for months, because he did. The CD got stuck in his car player and what was probably initially really frustrating became an immersive experience …

Posted August 26, 2014 by | 0 Comments | 791 views]

An unassuming and generally beatific kind of dude, you’d have to twist his arm to get him to tell you about being DJ Harvey’s engineer.
