Playlist: Jeremy Bible

Jeremy Bible is a sound and visual artist who has seen more than a dozen of his albums released, including an excellent collaborative album with Jason Henry. His work is highly experimental, situated mostly in the realm of drone and ambient sounds, and his material is always on the cutting edge of those genres. He is also the man behind the great label and record shop Experimedia, which is, for me and many others, the go-to place for a wide variety of experimental music. Personally speaking, I can also say that his taste in music is impeccable, and has had a great influence on my buying and listening habits over the past couple of years. For more info, check out the Experimedia Facebook and Twitter pages, and make a habit of reading the online magazine.
