Stamens/Pistils/Parties is a new blog founded by former COUNTERZINE founder and editor Travis Shosa with the intent of being a “net” to catch what might slip through the cracks. Named for a song by Japanese artist Hakushi Hasegawa, it aims to plug gaps in traditional media coverage, whether it be genres not currently considered to be “in the zeitgeist,” underrepresented perspectives, global art, etc.
