The first issue of the All Iowa Noise Insurgency magazine is finished and available at the kind of places you may expect to find a zine on Iowa noise music in cities like Ames, Des Moines, and Dubuque, but I also have a whole extra stack of them laying around, so let me know if you want one and I can sure send it out to you.

The Warm Gospel label was created based on the concept of recreating the grand, layered spectrum of gospel music using the contemporary ideas and tools of electronic, noise, and ambient music. The result is something new. Over the past year, Warm Gospel has collected releases from many of Iowa's beat and noise makers, including DJ DJ TANNER, Tires, Olsen Twinns, Juxwl, and others. In combining these artists under a single label, Warm Gospel has established a foundation of rumbling noise, tidal waves of synth, and layers of clouded harmonies in a part of Iowa where, previously, experimental music was never fully realized as an important part of the state's overall music output.
On December 18th, the Vaudeville Mews will showcase nearly every artist on the Warm Gospel label, bringing an entire night of electronic sound exploration to Des Moines.
