We Are Temporary Day on Floorshime Zipper Boots

Every so often we do a special piece on Friday. So for this Friday the 13th, we are bringing you Art... Art in both the pure and broad sense of the word. We are declaring it "We Are Temporary Day" on FZB. If we had to pick a favorite in the world of boutique indie labels, the choice would be down to a precious handful. A likely contender for the top spot of FZB favorite indie label would always have to be Stars and Letter Records. This label is superbly curated ,with an artist roster including: Shocking Pinks, Bad Blocks, Ruane Maurice, Empathy Test, Black City Lights and, of course, We Are Temporary. The artist/producer We Are Temporary, aka Mark Roberts, should be familiar to readers of this blog. What some may not know is that, besides making brilliant music, Mark is also the founder and creative force behind Stars and Letters Records. He has a knack for finding excellent talent, nurturing that talent and doing imaginative and innovative releases. Mark is an artist with a gracious air, a masterful ear and a creative integrity matched by few. In honor of We Are Temporary Day on FZB, please enjoy the new video of Mark's sublime performance of Let's Fall Silent, shot live at his recent concert at Tans-Pecos in Brooklyn. Then follow the link to We Are Temporary's music on Bandcamp. Enjoy, this is about as good as it gets.
