GUEST AOTY: Temporary Residence Ltd. | Phantom Limb | Figureight Records

I've been a fan of Temporary Residence Ltd. since my late teens. One of many only a few labels that succinctly show and maintain a hand in punk, hardcore and post hardcore whilst managing to foster experimental music with absolute mastery.
