Smoking Gun - Feds ADMIT to Smart Meter Privacy Breach!

A $300k federal grant explores "inherently nosy Smart Grid" from National Science Foundation.

SIU professor receives research grant to explore potential Smart Grid privacy breaches

CARBONDALE � Kemal Akkaya, associate professor of computer science at SIU, received a $298,112 National Science Foundation grant to explore ways to protect consumer privacy as the more resilient, but inherently nosy, Smart Grid gradually replaces our outmoded national power grid.

The Smart Grid is the U.S. Department of Energy�s answer to updating last century�s electric skeleton so that we can all remain �plugged in� with newer technology and more devices. One of its key elements is the widespread use of smart meters. The Smart Grid Advanced Metering Infrastructure essentially is the integrated system of smart meters, communications networks and data management systems.

�The modernized Smart Grid is expected to enable several new applications such as dynamic pricing, demand response and fraud detection,� Akkaya said. �However, collection of such fine-grained data raises privacy issues.�

By privacy issues, Akkaya means that specific information � such as when a household member is in the shower � could become available to third parties, such as overly curious neighbors, rogue law enforcement (known as black bag operatives) or potential burglars.

What�s good about smart meters � 15 million of which are already in use � is information. The old style meters tell a household how much energy it�s using, but not how. A smart meter can, for example, help a household identify what appliances are using the most energy � and that can help household members make decisions that directly affect their energy bill each month.

Smart meters can also assist utilities providers.

�Utilities providers would like to gather power usage information from customers every 15 minutes,� Akkaya said. �The goal is to have power map of cities in real-time, and to generate electricity based on the exact need. In addition to customer data, they also plan to deploy sensors on power lines and substations to collect data about the quality of the power generated. Plus, they would like to do state estimation (power system monitoring) of their power network. This component of the Smart Grid is called wide area situation awareness.�

The results can mean lower energy costs to consumers. It can also mean more efficient management of the infrastructure, which is also good for the environment. The Energy department notes that an efficiency improvement in the grid would significantly reduce fuel and greenhouse gas emissions.

That all sounds wonderful � but what�s bad about smart meters is the same thing as what�s good about them: information.

That�s why Akkaya�s research is important. To make the smart meters useful, the data must be communicated. That presents a problem of too much data too widely available, Akkaya said.

�When I first read about the techniques for analyzing power usage data of a house during a 24-hour period, I was surprised to find that it is very easy to extract detailed information abut the types of appliances in use at the house � if you did laundry, ironing, or watched TV,� he said. �Obviously this is a privacy concern, and some studies have addressed this. However, they were never tested in terms of the communication overhead they would bring to the AMI network. My focus on this aspect of the problem is what caught the attention of the NSF, I believe.�

Akkaya said an economical and efficient solution to protecting consumer privacy is to use existing communications infrastructure rather than relying on the Smart Grid for both data collection and communication.

Andrea Hahn writes for University Communications.

I wanted to let you know that the Commission heard you loud and clear. We have approved an "opt out" for smart meters for any Georgia Power customer beginning now. For smart meter related inquiries, contact Georgia Power at or 1-800-642-5172. You may also use this contact information to let Georgia Power know if you want the smart meter removed. There will be a $19 charge per month to have it read manually, and if they have not installed the smart meter yet, you can ask them not to install it. For smart meter related inquiries, please use the designated email address or call 1-800-642-5172.

Behold the music industry is trying to adjust to a revolution, caused by technology evolution. It is now easier to create, duplicate, and distribute CD�s in a cost effective manner. The playing field is starting to level off giving independent companies a chance to enjoy monetary success. However the next wave of independents are coming across as hustlers, and not businessmen. Therefore, as major labels limit signing new acts, and independents lack the business mindset, thus the climate is right for IRON HORSE MUSIC

Our Vision:

IRON HORSE MUSIC refuses to create carbon copy artists that have different names yet have styles like the others. IRON HORSE MUSIC shall only work with artists with drive, vision and have the gift to touch minds & entertain.

Why Iron Horse Music:

IRON HORSE MUSIC will be a driving force to help expose underground artists to the world. IRON HORSE MUSIC will function similar to other labels in the regard we will work to promote the artists through every means possible including radio, in stores, video clip etc., however the principal nature of IRON HORSE MUSIC will be to groom, nurture, and develop artists for the next level. The best analogy that represents our goals is like a minor league baseball team. Without bias we will recruit the best prospects throughout the land and help to develop their talents in areas including style, performance, and production. IRON HORSE MUSIC will utilize all efforts to make our artists successful, however most artists need to hone their skills, and gain popularity. Some might disagree on our platform, but we shall stand firm and work hard with up and coming artists, and if they leave us for a better deal, then we succeeded growing something special from our meager pond.

What makes different? is not a brand new concept. We are not re-inventing the wheel. is merely adding, enhancing, and improving a medium that will be the standard for the future. What sets us apart at this point is our willingness and drive to promote our artists, other artists, and independent labels to the fullest. That doesn�t mean million dollar videos, fully wrapped buses etc., It takes going back to the grassroots hand to hand, word of mouth promotion. The Internet has made this world smaller. Years ago independent labels could only sell CD�s in their local area.

Today we can reach listeners worldwide. has a growing database of e-mails addresses of, hip-hop friendly business, and industry executives that we will actively promote to. We will also send out postcards, do magazine ads, and other promotion material, however everything will be cost effective. is looking for those on our level; if you believe in what were doing, and you have what it takes contact us.

Experience the underground..
...enjoy the ride



On his ninth album (and fifth for Bloodshot Records) �blood� is many, often inherently contradictory, themes: life, death, suffering, evil, commitment, legacy, atonement. Throughout Nothin� But Blood, recorded at Biram�s home studio and Cacophony Studios in Austin, TX, SHB�s distinct songwriting style encompasses his penchant for sludge metal and palm muting (�Around the Bend�), the raw sucker punch of punk rock (�Only Whiskey�), profound truths of sentimental acoustic blues and country (�Never Comin� Home�), the cleansing powers of gospel hymns and spiritual ballads (�When I Die�), and folk tales from the early 20th century (there has never been a more beautifully creepy and morosely slinky take on �Jack of Diamonds�).

Like a scumbag Leonard Cohen. � Shooter Jennings

His raucous blend of psychobilly, blues, country, metal and rock suggests and inner starvation for true expression and honesty that, frankly, should lead you to question the conviction of everyone you've ever seen set foot on a stage. � Houston Press

Writing from a new-found place of conviction, Lydia crafted 10 songs that are stark in their honesty, self-examination, and openness. Without ditching the ribald, spit-in-your-eye attitude of her previous recordings, Loveless travels into some parallel-universe, roots-born Exile In Guyville territory. These are songs that find her asserting stylistic choices, while baring themes of insatiable desire, unrequited emotion, and mistake-making on life's crooked, fucked up path.

Recorded at Sonic Lounge in her hometown Columbus, OH, Somewhere Else is more elemental than any of Loveless� previous material; it�s about longing for the other - whether that�s something emotional, physical, or mental.

SPIN has already covered Lydia in advance of the album (as one of the 5 Best New Artists of January , on their 50 Albums to Hear in 2014 , and in a This Is Happening feature ) and just premiered a new track �Head.�

Love this woman. Love her. Is �Stevie Nicks singing lead on 'Born to Run'" overstating it? Probably, but too bad. � SPIN

Brimming with brashness and vulnerability, confidence and insecurity, and can leave you not knowing quite what to think. � The Boston Globe



�Dex Romweber was and is a huge influence on my music. I owned all of his records as a teenager, and was thrilled at the fact that we were able to play together recently on tour. [He is] is one of the best kept secrets of the rock n roll underground.�

� Jack White, White Stripes

For a quarter century, Dex Romweber has trolled the dark corners and back shelves of the haunted thrift store of Americana ephemera and honed an extraordinarily idiomatic sound, a particular and readily identifiable DEXness for those in the know. It�s a creepy doll collection of surf, proto-rockabilly, garage, dark and vengeful blues, and nobody, but nobody, plays it like Dex. First with the legendary Flat Duo Jets and now with his Duo, Dex distilled the punk ethos of less-is-more to the essential guitar/drums template. Left in the wake of his lecherous and slithery Silvertone were early acolytes like Jack White, Neko Case, and the Reigning Sound as well as a current crop of the indie pack like Ty Segall, No Age, Japandroids, and The Black Keys. All owe an unclaimed pawn ticket of debt to his sublime and spine-tingling sound. He is a live wire back to the murky, sometimes dangerous and always unpredictable headwaters of real rock and roll.

Dex, with his whip-wristed sister Sara Romweber on drums, takes their third full-length release (and first since 2011�s Is That You In The Blue?) Images 13 through neon-lit alleys, full of pulp fiction juvey rock, sci-fi theme songs and greasy denim hipster jive. Recorded at Rick Miller�s (Southern Culture on the Skids) Kudzu Ranch studio in North Carolina, Images 13 would make everyone from Duane Eddy to Stan Kenton to Lenny Bruce crack a smile, a joke or the seal on a fifth of rye and head for the Naugahyde ice bucket.

All of our Metal Blade discography has been out of print since right after each release and we're glad we will finally be able to meet some of the demands of the fans with these cool reissues! I've had rare items in my personal collection that came with an empty spot for other items that had to be hunted down in order to be complete, I always thought that was fun and so now we pass the hunt on to our fans! The box art is another quality piece from the great Wes Benscoter which reveals the inside living space of a psychopath hellbent on revenge, the same point of view from which the majority of our lyrics come from."

BEATS MUSIC ACQUIRES TOPSPIN Today we are excited to announce that Beats Music has acquired Topspin. Beats Music has made it a priority to empower artists within their recently launched streaming service, and they have acquired ArtistLink to continue powering the images, bios, and commerce offers on their artist profile pages.

Topspin�s earliest and most lasting mission has been to help artists make a living by connecting them with their fans and helping them make money. When we started in 2007, music fans were primarily downloading digital files and moving them manually into their iPods. The world of downloads proved valuable in acquiring fan emails for free and bundling digital albums with tickets, merchandise, or any type of direct-to-fan offer. In the 7 years since, fans have moved away from buying individual downloads and moved into accessing the world�s music from a variety of streaming services. As the era of streaming matures, new ways to connect artists and fans will evolve inside these services, and Beats Music now has a proven platform and team in Topspin�s ArtistLink to lead the industry in empowering artists in their service.

Moving forward, Beats Music is going to fully support all ArtistLink offers that you have on Beats Music, Spotify, and You do not need to make any changes to your ArtistLink account and can continue to use ArtistLink to publish your offers.

Topspin is proud and honored to be joining the Beats Music team. We are excited to shepherd in the next evolution of direct-to-fan for artists as members of the Beats Music team and have lots of great developments to share with you in the days and weeks ahead.

The Topspin team

Temporary Residence Limited

A few years ago we released the debut album by an ambitious, extremelty talented family band from Bloomington, Indiana called Dreamers of the Ghetto. They enjoyed the kind of blinding white praise from blogs with comments like "next big thing" and "too good to not get huge." In spite of � or because of (or a little of both) � those accolades, the band dissolved well before the world was able to discover their significant gifts. Now, singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Luke Aaron Jones and fellow DOTG alum Marty Sprowles have pared down the widescreen stadium-sized rock of their former band to the more intimate, introspective Hunterchild. Jones' vocals are more arresting than ever, indebted as much to vintage Peter Gabriel, Prince, and Depeche Mode as the rich well of electronic R&B explorations from a similar orbit as James Blake and The Weeknd in their most powerful moments. Hunterchild are comfortable in their own skin in a way that's almost unheard of for debut artists.

You can hear the first single, "Aching," from their forthcoming debut album here:

We are truly honored to announce our reissue of William Basinski's stirring album, Melancholia, on vinyl for the first time ever! Remastered from the original recordings and packaged in a gorgeous deluxe gatefold featuring all-new artwork by James Elaine, this album has never looked or sounded more arresting. Pressed on 100% virgin black vinyl in a strictly limited edition of 2,000 copies, this is not to be slept on (though it does make a cozy companion to sleep with).

Pre-Order Here:

Limited Edition LP Reissue

Originally released a year after the increasingly iconic The Disintegration Loops, a decade later Melancholia still stands as William Basinski's second most beloved album. To commemorate its 10-year anniversary, we are honored to present the first-ever vinyl edition of this otherworldly piece of music. Remastered from the original recordings and pressed onto audiophile-quality 100% pure virgin vinyl, this limited-edition vinyl reissue is packaged in a stunning gatefold jacket featuring all-new artwork. It is truly a sight and sound to behold. Like many of Basinski's most soul-stirring works, Melancholia began as a series of short tape loops captured in the early 1980s. Basinski then stored them away for decades, revisiting them at a different time in his life, at which point they took on a stunning new sound all their own � one that many consider to be among the finest of the past decade.

DOYLE AIRENCE release new video / play Hellfest

French post-hardcore upcomers DOYLE AIRENCE have released a brand new video for the track "We Were Kids" off their critically acclaimed Lifeforce Records debut album "Monolith".

The video was directed by Mathieu Ezan.

"We Were Kids" is the second single release off the band's latest effort "Monolith, which was released in November 2013 via Lifeforce Records.

"Monolith" received a lot of praises from international press and secured the band a slot at this year HELLFEST edition.

The band will also headline a very special show at La Boule Noire (Paris) on March 26th with UK's HACKTIVIST.

"The Frenchies have found their own little niche inbetween post-rock and hardcore and deliver with "Monolith" eleven great engaging atmospheric tracks." 6/7 METAL HAMMER (DE)

"This is a masterpiece!" 5/5 - All Around Metal (IT)

�Monolith� is in total a fabulous album and potentially the genre-highlight of the year. Fans of Deftones, Architects or BMTH should buy it blindly!" 10/10 - (DE)

"Over 11 sprawling tracks, Monolith moves from crashing fury, to expansive sonic plateaus, to introspective ambience." - Thrash Hits (UK)

"Even the most narrow minded person will at the end not bet able to deny, that this is first class modern art!" 10/10 - Midwinter Fires (CAN)

"Heavy yet ambiant, "Monolith" is already a post-hardcore standard" - MyRock (FR)

Formed in 2007 by five Parisians originally under the name DOYLE, the band reached its first goals by burning its name in the collective mind of the new and forward-thinking French metal/post-hardcore scene. In 2010, debut album �And Gods will...� jumped to #2 of the rock/metal album charts and maintained its position on the French Top 5 for three weeks. Between 2010 and 2012, the band toured through Europe with bands such as The Chariot, Between The Buried and Me, Animals as Leaders, Steak Number Eight and Deftones.

In 2013 the band was forced to change their name due to some "trademark issues". Now with the new band name DOYLE AIRENCE, the quintet is looking for holistic music based on strong emotions and contrasts. LIFEFORCE RECORDS debut and second album �Monolith� strives on unconventional arrangements which are challenging but traceable. DOYLE AIRENCE�s songs cause interaction with the open mindedness and concentration of the listeners. Metal, ambient, post-hardcore and -rock: it is all to find along the way � connected by a superordinate hidden agenda.�Monolith� allows the band to broaden their musical spectrum. From Pandemonium to Eden, brutality to poetry, DOYLE AIRENCE follows its own game plan, and takes us along for the ride.

Drekka : Ekki Gera Fikniefnum LP � Limited 300

Dais is proud to announce the first full length album in 9 years from Bloomington, Indiana�s underground legend DREKKA. Active since 1996 starting with his infallible Bluesanct label, Drekka�s Michael Anderson channeled his vision into Drekka with extensive tours of the US and Europe, audio & visual collages, and side projects such as 4K, In Gowan Ring, Stonebreath, Turn Pale, and lovesliescrushing. Drekka�s previous works run parallel to Edward Artemiev�s soundtracks for Andrei Tarkovsky, Simon Fischer Turner�s abstractions for Derek Jarman mixed with more contemporary groups like Nurse With Wound or Coil. Ethereral folk that takes on a tranquil lullaby quality, layered and textured, deconstructed and rebuilt to cause a quiet discomfort. Utilizing his endless personal sound library in a manner unique to Anderson, these compositions are arranged more like a film, showing us a glimpse into Drekka�s soundtracks to films unmade.

�Ekki gera fikniefnum,� is a mistranslation from English to Icelandic for �Don�t do drugs�, which seems to amuse Icelanders to no end. The expressions on Drekka�s recent work are equally mistranslated. What one listener perceives as absolute, Drekka sees as only a loosely-fitting frame in his gallery of visions.

For fans of Nurse With Wound, Cindytalk, Lovesliescrushing, and Coil.

Limited to 300 copies, with gorgeous silver-treated pantone jacket and insert.


Youth Code � s/t (Repress) � Limited 500 (400 Wine, 100 Splatter)

Repress of the sold-out debut album by Los Angeles wrath-induced EBM outfit Youth Code. Their initial offering unleashes 10 bitter outbursts of dance floor destruction saddling strict BPM worship following the Wax Trax blueprint but stylistically rewriting their unique industrial anthems to a beat all their own. An explosive cohesion of material to follow up the angst-laden maelstrom of their elusive demo tape and redefined single on Angry Love Productions. While comparisons to the likes of Skinny Puppy, Front Line Assembly and Ministry are not far off, their hybrid blend with contemporary American hardcore punk makes Youth code one of the most individual and distinctive electronic acts active.



DAIS 042
Annabelle's Garden : Time's No Measure 1987-1993 (Volume 1)

Dais is very, very pleased to announce (after 4 years in the works) that pre-orders are up for the double LP retrospective of late 80's gothic folk collective, Annabelle's Garden. Annabelle�s Garden were a radically underground goth-wave/neo-folk band founded in Hamburg, Germany by members of local acts �La Lisa� and �Beyond Despair�, most active between 1987 and 1997. They released cassettes themselves and across indie European labels, music which was eventually compiled and presented to the world in the early and mid-90s on two CD releases by none other than Patrick Leagas (of Death in June & 6Comm/Mother Destruction) on his own lauded Kenaz imprint.

Though they played rarely, it was often an event � outdoors, in fields to friends � and their live performances usually made us of all 24 tracks across the soundboard, dozens of instruments (traditional and homemade: rusty cages, rain barrels, etc).

Often compared to contemporaries like Death in June, Sol Invictus, or Current 93 (they toured extensively with 6Comm), they managed to create music that existed both in that realm and beyond, labeled as psychedelic, punk, new wave, and goth. You can clearly hear respect given to This Mortal Coil, The Cure, or The Wake � making them as easily filed among classic World Serpent releases as they would fit among 4AD or Factory.

The truth is, so little was known about Annabelle�s Garden outside of Europe that not only were their original releases on Kenaz extremely hard to find � you were lucky to even have heard about them to know to search. However - what exists here, in Annabelle�s Garden, is some of the most layered, deep, rich, and nostalgic music Dais has ever uncovered.

This gorgeous limited gatefold double LP is comprised of not only the original Kenaz release from 1993: �Wo Sind Nur Eure G�tter Hin?�, but also includes tracks from the band�s original first recording and maiden cassette release, as well as a special never before heard remix of their classic anthem �If�.

Lovingly included is a full color 12-page booklet with liner notes, detailed track information, and a complete history of the band written by the band themselves, emerging for the first time in almost twenty years to collaborate with Dais. This is the first of a limited series of Annabelle�s Garden in chronological order, bringing forth some of the most rare and gorgeous underground music ever.

Limited edition of 500, gorgeous gatefold double LP designed by Eddie O'Dowd (Psychic TV/PTV3, Angry Love) with 12 page booklet and liner notes by Dais and Annabelle's Garden.


Tor Lundvall � Structures and Solitude 5xCD

Tor Lundvall�s elegant soundtracks have been captured onto nine full length albums and collected within various compilations, raising his stature as one of the most abundant craftsman within the field of ambient music. Lundvall�s second box set for Dais features a 5 disc collection of more recent works including the albums Empty City and Last Light, as well as CD versions of the vinyl-only albums Sleeping & Hiding and The Shipyard. Additionally, the fifth disc in the collection entitled Night Studies compiles Lundvall�s �after hours� recording sessions, setting the atmospheric tone for the ensemble. All discs include previously unreleased bonus tracks with a booklet and artwork by Tor Lundvall. As a limited edition bonus, a special 50 copy �art edition� of the box will contain one original oil study artwork from Tor Lundvall, each one contains a different original artwork.


COUM Transmissions � Home Aged & The 18 Month Hope LP

The most recent installment of the rare & unheard archival recordings from the transgressive 70?s performance art group COUM Transmissions. Founded in late 1969 by Genesis P-Orridge, COUM Transmissions�s provocative performances mixed with visual art solidified the group as one of the most forward thinking breakthroughs within the 70?s conceptual art scene. Only in the past couple years has COUM�s recorded works seen the light of day. This release collects various selections spanning the years 1971 through 1975, including a rare live performance opening for Hawkwind, lost radio interview, obtuse poetry readings by early member Fizzey Peat, piano & violin compositions by Genesis P-Orridge and insightful field recordings. Limited to 1,000 vinyl copies.


Cold Showers� Still Life 7?

The beautiful, enigmatic shoegaze bliss of L.A.�s own Cold Showers returns to Dais with a new single. Two virgin cuts which bring their lush heartbeat back to life. The Fire, a fluid post punk anthem drenched in romantic heartbreak, crying to the masses for love. On the heels is Crowds, an acoustic, crooning diamond which shines through the daybreak. Limited to 500 copies.

Missing Foundation � s/t LP

In the 1980?s, New York City was a dismal wasteland filled with urban decay and creative miracles. It was only a matter of time before the suits saw an investment opportunity, with cash in hand they bought off NYC and started the criminal gentrification of downtown New York, sterilizing any sense of culture and fumigating all residents deemed financially worthless. This kind of invasion brought the perfect storm in the form of Missing Foundation. Founded by Peter Missing in the early 80?s, Missing Foundation and their �Party�s Over� logo challenged the governing trends of NYC, pouring gasoline on the tinderbox of the class war taking place on the city streets. Known for their hostile and fiery performances (and infamous ban from CBGB�s in the late 80?s), Missing Foundation left a scorched mark behind and started a movement still felt in the underground community today. Their debut album was originally released on Purge/Sound in 1987 and now Dais is honored to being reissuing this masterpiece of industrial folklore to a new generation who forgot where it started. Countless thanks to Erik Proft and Bill Cashman for all their help in making this happen. Limited to 500 copies.

Missing Foundation - 1933 Your House Is Mine LP

The cacophonic dischord of Missing Foundation and the prophetic vision of Peter Missing culminated into a follow up album following their legendary self-titled debut which was collected under the banner as 1933 Your House Is Mine. This sophomore effort was brought about in 1988 as a means to educate the forgotten and venerate their followers using brash performance tactics and industrial rhythm to rally their cause. An industrial soundtrack of urban protest, Missing Foundation found their voice, garnishing attention from the mainstream as well as being lauded by underground. The cultural divide had been marked with Missing Foundation�s flipping martini glass signature declaring that the party was over. After being out of print for almost 25 years, Dais has reissued this legendary recording in a limited edition of 500 copies.

Deviation Social � Tempus/Deathwatch �From End to Beginning� Vol. 2 LP

One-man industrial outfit, Deviation Social left a scar on the face of the American 80?s experimental/noise scene that has mysteriously been left to legend and rumor. Dais previously released the first authorized reissue of Deviation Social�s compilation tracks dating back from the early 80?s. Here within, Volume 2 compiles the two proper �studio� releases of Deviation Social�s checkered past. The destructive Tempus Purgatio Part 7 single and 1982 album cassette Workforce/Deathwatch are finally collected and reissued as a single LP in a edition of 500 with zine booklet with writings and archival images from Deviation Social.

DBC� Pris LP

Blinding white magic in light of the new age opera, the Dangerous Boy�s Club bring the heat. DBC has the lips of a killer, the unholy choir of the repentant, and the glamour cast from gold. Known for their history in such outfits as Heroin, Antioch Arrow and Get Hustle, their debut album Vril on Fast Weapons awoke followers out of their coma. Dais now brings everyone to the alter with their follow up LP, Pris. Sacramental electro synth-rock mixed with glam violence inducing one into a state of bliss and ecstasy. Not from this world�not of this time, but DBC knows exactly what we needed to hear. Making sure that everything will be alright, just give in to the club. Limited edition of 500, soaked in soul.


Tor Lundvall - The Shipyard

Tor Lundvall has graced us with yet another remarkable album this year. Previously, Lundvall had introduced himself to Dais with his masterpiece album Sleeping & Hiding and struck lightning twice with the resilient The Seasons Unfold box set and now we are humbled once again to receive his most recent effort. The Shipyard was recorded during the dramatic season change-over of �09/�10, during which time Lundvall was immersing himself in portrait studies of local maritime themes and nautical life at the docks. This instrumental collection of songs composed the soundtrack to the final renderings of these conceptional ideas put side by side, for which semblance he is most know for. Limited to 500 hand numbered vinyl copies (comes with a free digital download coupon) with artwork by Tor Lundvall.
