An online accompaniment to CDM # 5 – The Truth Zine.



The theme for this month’s DIY zine is “truth” and this month we have contributions from guest curators: Aly & AJ, Blackstarkids, Justine Skye, Lydia Night / The Regrettes and Savannah Lee Smith.

Exclusively for this printed zine, each guest curator has assembled two pages relating to what the truth means to them.

+ Thanks to Wyatt Knowles for designing this month’s zine cover!

The Los Angeles-based band started music school as a teenager. Now their latest single ‘On Monday‘is inspired and written during last year’s pandemic lockdown, and features a trippy video set at a prom.

Singer Lydia Night shares the video: “The video features ‘Joy’ – a creepy pink character depicting the false image of her ‘perfect and ideal self’ who started taunting me and I think of a lot of people in college. She will be a permanent character and theme in the movie. music to come We had a blast doing it with some of our best friends.
