"The laws that govern success in the music industry would lead you to believe that the best music is the most popular music, and this is patently untrue.I can't wait until we can bring you volumes 2 through to 5000, to prove beyond any sane doubt that the best music is what resonates with you personally, how ever many copies it has sold worldwide."
The album features a diverse range of tracks, from artists including The Distillers, The Icicle Works, Fugazi, Helmet, Soul Asylum & The Decendents.

What if Rimbaud met Roy Orbison, on acid in a room full of synthesizers, after a late night wander through the haunted streets of New Orleans? Is getting lost the only way to ever be found? At what point does the hero’s journey become a fool’s errand?
Nearly two decades into a lifer’s voyage of shapeshifting through shadowy realms of the American underground, Guy Blakeslee, poses these and other conundrums on his dramatic new album, Postcards From The Edge (Entrance Records).
Recorded in New Orleans at the house studio of Preservation Hall Jazz Band, with former Sonic Ranch engineer and producer, Enrique Tena Padilla (Oh Sees, Wand), and featuring appearances from singers Lael Neale, Hale May, Rachel Fannan, and drummer Derek James of The Entrance Band,
Postcards From The Edge is electrified by the spirit of sonic experimentation, and the fervent desire to chart a map into unknown territory. Across the record’s seven tracks, Blakeslee’s questing lyrics teem with stormy emotion, his plaintive voice finding succor in richly-textured melodies that soar over lushly-produced soundscapes, always on the verge of collapse.

“Ginger gave me two instructions: “Loud guitars and loud crowd”….I didn’t have a choice in either as that’s what was captured during the recording” - Live album producer Dave Draper
