You Can Never Leave Review and Radio

You Can Never Leave, including my track “The Insufferable Shame Of The Pine Nut Bulk Bin,” was reviewed in A Closer Listen. An excerpt:

Some of the titles are particularly amusing:  “The Insufferable Shame of the Pine Nut Bulk Bin,” “Find Your Epic (A New Level of Hell,” “The Sauna Must Be Booked 24 Hours in Advance.”  Is this really heaven, or a scrubbed nightmare?  Precisely how happy is the upper class?  What would occur if a resident were to skip one of those cappuccinos? 

The compilation was also highlighted on Unofficial Britain, and Kate Bosworth played a few tracks on Dark Train.

Pre-order today and you get my track immediately. The full compilation is out on June 25. All proceeds go to Coffee4Craig, which provides vital support for Manchester’s homeless and people in crisis. You can watch my track accompanying the ad here.

C.M.S.O. Reviewed in The Wire

It’s with the utmost pride and joy that I share that Orca, Attack!’s C.M.S.O. is reviewed in this month’s edition of the incredible The Wire magazine. Spenser Tomson writes, “…incoherent snippets of detail are delivered via garbled new age electronics and blissed out chorals, like a sleep learning tape that’s been chewed by the deck.” The full review is available from Exact Editions or your local library. THANK YOU to Spenser and The Wire editorial staff for their support!

Two new compilations

I’ve got tracks on not one, but two new compilations!

Today, Ball of Wax releases Volume 64: The Music of TELEPHONE, a compilation of all 80 (!) music tracks included in the international game of artistic telephone that I participated in this spring. My song “Nest” is in the mix.

And today, Front & Follow announced the pre-release of You Can Never Leave, a compilation of tracks inspired by this very Lynchian advertisement for luxury housing. You get my track, “The Insufferable Shame Of The Pine Nut Bulk Bin,” immediately if you purchase today, and the full compilation is out on June 25. All proceeds go to Coffee4Craig, which provides vital support for Manchester’s homeless and people in crisis.

You can watch my track accompanying the ad here.

C.M.S.O. is (some of) The Best Experimental Music on Bandcamp!

We here at Orca, Attack! headquarters are beyond ecstatic that Marc Masters included C.M.S.O. as one of his picks for the best experimental music on Bandcamp last month. Here’s an excerpt:

The New Orleans-based duo of Elizabeth Joan Kelly and David Rodriguez mix retro-futuristic voices with technological debris to create something not far from James Ferraro’s work circa Far Side Virtual. Simultaneously funny and creepy, C.M.S.O. is cultural collage that works on whatever level you feel like assigning to it.
