Among The Moose is an interview-ish series where I ask some questions of the extremely good bands on this label and share their answers with you. We are starting with KM North (Chloe Dancer, Youth Pastor, Drazen, American Goner, Rosegold etc etc etc etc etc etc) because Chloe Dancer was the first release we did and so why not go through this chronologically. I sent all of the artists the same series of questions, and then some follow up questions. In KM’s case, I didn’t send any follow up, his answers were extremely on brand and it felt wrong to follow it up.

Check out the SMR projects that KM was involved in up to this point:
