Smugglers Way is Domino’s first Flexidisc Zine

I did a little watercolor of a demon for it.


Smuggler’s Way is Domino and Ribbon’s first ever zine featuring FIVE individual, multi-colored Flexi discs of EXCLUSIVE, UNRELEASED songs from Dirty Projectors, Real Estate, Cass McCombs, John Maus and Villagers. Listen to the John Maus track here! Initially uploaded to the internet by John Maus as an incomplete composition aka “demo” (where it still remains), the version of “No Title (Molly)” put forth now, and forever moving forward, has been partially re-recorded, entirely re-mixed and re-mastered “aka wholly worked over” by John Maus himself.

 Record Store Day is rapidly approaching! Here is a sneak pick of Alison Mosshart (The Kills) contribution to the Smugglers Way zine.
