Imagine yourself walking into Perimeter Books in Melbourne in shorts, T-shirt and sandals, coffee-to-go in hand, sunglasses in your hair. Now imagine that happening right now, because yes, down under it is summer as we speak. Anyway, Perimeter Books, a fairly new addition to the übercool city of Melbourne, but already firmly established on the [...]

Killin’ It

I seriously have the hardest time deciding which one is the better GLK mix – and I’ve listened to both of them back to back for what feels like more than a week straight now. Sorry, neighbors!


Just in case that you are still in dire need of last minute Christmas presents, here are some suggestions where we might be able to help with our nifty little gift list for all wallet sizes – order this week though to insure timely delivery. And yes, we do allow for gift orders to be [...]


With the final track Leaning Towards Solace, Sigur Rós‘ series of videos for their new album Valtari comes to an end.
