New to my ears, Star Slinger popped up after a friend dropped me a recommendation on Facebook (thanks Ciaren!). All it really took was one listen and my interest was sparked.

I’ve been kind of slack with updating the blog as of late. Busy in the midst of organizing Substance’s 2nd Birthday event, and trying to get the new Substance website online. It’s kind of taken up all of my spare time and unfortunately the blog has had to take a back seat. Anyway, over the […]

To help celebrate the launch of the blog, I decided to make available a mash I did a while ago.
