flibsideLet’s face it, the most interesting work on any record is the b side. The most unique work, by any artist, is what they have buried in their closet. FLIbSIDE honours that special place where creativity is allowed to show itself without constraint. Art one creates when nobody is looking. That happy accident when there are no expectations.

That’s the FLIbSIDE.

So sit back, flip the record, and see what creativity looks like on the b side.
