Black Cake Records is celebrating its first birthday this month. To celebrate an incredible year of poetry & recordings, I’ve put together an anthology of all the poets & artists that released records with us in 2014. The Year One // Anthology is a mixtape of sorts featuring fourteen tracks of poetry, mashups, field recordings, collaborations, & sound experiments by our amazing authors: Robert Duncan Gray, Cassandra Gillig, Sara Woods, Emily Kendal Frey, Danniel Schoonebeek, Lisa Ciccarello, Amy Lawless, Zachary Schomburg, Wendy Xu, Nick Sturm, Dot Devota, Brandon Shimoda, Bianca Stone, & Sampson Starkweather.
It’s been an incredible year & we have many more projects from more artists to come. If you have been meaning to check out our site, this anthology is a great opportunity to get to know us. If you know us & like what we do, this is also a great opportunity to consider donating a few bucks to Black Cake to ensure that these experiments continue. We will work hard forever to keep our recordings free (& ad-free), & your donation goes to support that.
Thank you everyone for your continued amazing support & for every person that has contributed to this project. I am grateful & awed & inspired by all of you. Happy New Year & enjoy! <3 p="">
