New writing from friends of the label

Dum dums get so mad at music writing, but criticism remains vital to our culture and our careers. Over the lifespan of the label we have met a lot of writers we respect and felt there was probably some weird pitches in them that were never published. We’re interested in so much more than our own music and wanted to try put it somewhere. It goes without saying that as kids in Scotland, blogs and magazines were our entry point to various subcultures and we wanted to try keep the concept alive at a time when a lot of places that helped us come up are shutting shop.
