A-void 3.0 and recent articles

A Void screen shot

Now that several time-consuming projects are out of the way, I’m getting back to blogging at a void, which has a new design and a host of new posts to roll out. Feel free to check it out, and follow me on Twitter @a_v0id for music-related commentary.

Also, you can find a collection of links to my last year’s worth of articles for the Globe, both business and arts, after the jump.
