Nite Owl Juke Box, Vol.16: Curator of Meteorites — now available!


Volume 16 of the illustrious Nite Owl Juke Box mixtape series is now available — “Curator of Meteorites”! The first volume to appear in seven years, this highly anticipated release shows Nite Owl Juke Box maturing but never losing its youthful fire. Encompassing the growth and death of families and relationships, and hinting obliquely at birth and regret, this volume blends the best of the vaults with the freshest and most piquant of the new to produce a heady brew of musical raptures and uphold the storied tradition of the series. Themes of fertility, struggle, and triumph interlace with meditative, nearly spiritual, moments, producing a moving whole of enduring value. It features the same impeccably indie, lo-fi, underground chiaroscuro artwork and production values (done with a blunt-tip black Sharpie, as always) as previous volumes in the series. By recontextualizing and juxtaposing forgotten favorites and new ravers, “Curator of Meteorites” delivers trenchant commentary on today’s life, times, and art. For longtime fans of the series, its punches will not fail to land — and newcomers will be blown away by the craftsmanship and dead-on artistic sensibility, the unerring ear for incisive social & introspective commentary, displayed. DJ Bonebrake knows the dark night of the soul, as well as how to how to move the masses on the dance floor and the protestors in the streets. His reach stretches from the blank depths of utter hedonism to the heights of familial devotion and purity.  This is truly a landmark of the series. A new pinnacle has been reached in the art of the mixtape. Ask for — no, demand — it wherever your favorite music is sold.
