We lost a beautiful soul on July 11th, 2019.
Mikhail Julian N Kijauskas was the person behind the DIY record label Mount Seldom Records (https://mountseldomrecords.bandcamp.com/) in which he dedicated his time, money, and passion to making sure smaller independent musicians got the support they deserve. More than that, he is a friend to many of us, who was always more than willing to lend an ear and sympathize with the problems we face in life.
Over the past couple of years, he built an amazing community of people who supported each other’s creative endeavours through thick and thin. With that, we thought it would only be fitting if we honored his achievements in the form of a memorial compilation.
There’s this wonderful verse on Worms in Dirt’s track, Tape Karma, that I think a lot of people in our community will resonate with regardless of how well they knew him:
“I wish you knew just how much power
you held in your belief.
The gift you gave to all of us,
it will carry on,
in one way or another
it will move along”
This album is a testament to Mikhail’s impact on the music community.
Mik, your undying love for music brought people together to make something amazing, and it will continue on in your spirit now you accessed to some great beyond, where the clouds ring around the mountain.
Rest in power ❤
