So, 2014 will see mini50 working with this awesome artist from Chicago, Bastardgeist.  Our desire to expand the label, improve the label and make the label, well just fucking immense will be helped greatly by this young man.  And guess what Scotland……he’s playing shows here this week.  All the information you need about these are below along with some nice videos of Joel playing some songs in an abandoned mental hospital.  Awesome.  If you can get along to one of the shows please do as he will have vinyl to sell and stories to tell.  Thanks.

Bastardgeist, aka Chicago’s Joel Midden, is an intensely talented singer, kalimba player and producer who released his second LP, entitled Infinite Lives, in 2013 via Brainlove Records.

Bastardgiest has enthralled audiences around the USA and Europe with his delicate falsetto voice, textured electronics and acrobatic kalimba playing. He recently recorded live sessions of Notable American Women (gleaned from the LP) and L.A. Looks, a new song, for Derelict Music in London, shot in an abandoned mental hospital.
