You may have read me write nice things in the past about the record label Turnstile. I’ve blogged about how much I love their artists, we’ve toured with one of their bands, and I endorsed their first ever Bento Box

Well, I’m honoured to say that I was asked to curate Bento #2, and here are the results.

These are four songs from a dark place. At once utterly vulnerable and completely biting. Zola Jesus and Former Ghosts have released, or are shortly to release my two favourite records of the year, in The Spoils and Fleurs, and Elbows Like Swords and White Ring represent bands I am longing to know more about and desperate for a full length from. Best listened to with the lights off.
