Mnolo of Collage Records has graced the internet with a little known (for now) classic. Omari Kamau (formerly of .::liquidstereoproject and The Word Association) recorded Asymmetry many years ago, and it still holds up. Dive deep into this one.

While doing some recent housecleaning, I found two missing pieces that had yet to make their way to The Word Association‘s digital archive. I am very happy to now present to you, after years of “lost tapes” status, From The Crates Vols. 1 & 2.

Here’s some more goodness from the vaults of The Word Association… this is one of our first trips to Houston, live at The Rhythm Room. Full crew, and there’s a gem on here from The Ill Mathematical about topics that still effect us today. Dig.

As a part of my self-imposed learning of the internet and all of its digital companions, I stumbled across a way to archive all of my footage of The Word Association and .::liquidstereoproject that I own. I will be putting these movies up over the next week or so… be sure to keep coming back and checking for the new stuff.

Here’s a little something from me to you, to thank you for all of the years of support, and hopefully the years of continued support. This collection of songs contains material that some listeners may not have had the chance to own. All of these songs are from the core days of The Word Association, and a nice cross section of the collective is represented on these tracks. Take a trip down memory lane!
