READ: SRQ013: Sonar 2010 Review
The lovable rogues at theQuietus sent me to Spain on a mission to enjoy Barcelona's optimum 'International Festival of Advanced Music and Multimedia Art,' Sonar 2010 last week. Here's what came out of my withdrawl laden, fuzzed out brain and bandaged fingers earlier this week...
