Released: You Can Never Leave

Out today, Front & Follow’s You Can Never Leave, a compilation of tracks inspired by this very Lynchian advertisement for luxury housing. All proceeds go to Coffee4Craig, which provides vital support for Manchester’s homeless and people in crisis. The lads are also hosting an episode of Gated Canal Community Radio Sunday at 6pm BST / 12pm CST on Reform Radio that will include tracks from the comp as well as music from each of the contributors’ back catalogues.

If you haven’t seen it already, you can watch my track accompanying the ad here. My inspirations were the SNL digital short “Everyone’s A Critic,” Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, and the time I accidentally dumped a lifetime supply of pine nuts into my bag at the Whole Foods bulk dispensers and was too embarrassed not to pay for them, aka ultimate privileged-person-problems.

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.

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.

Echoes and Dust Review of ISOLATION AND REJECTION: VOL 1

Thanks to Echoes and Dust for the lovely review of ISOLATION AND REJECTION and this in particular on my track “Waking Up With A Cat On My Face:”

“…a brief liminal outburst like a warped TV ident or the soundtrack of an alarming flashback.”

Read the whole review over on the website, and ISOLATION AND REJECTION releases tomorrow!

Aural Aggravation Review of ISOLATION AND REJECTION

Aural Aggravation has a very nice review of the ISOLATION AND REJECTION VOL 1 comp up, with these kinds words about my contribution:

Elizabeth Joan Kelly’s ‘Waking Up With a Cat on My Face’ perfectly encapsulates that moment or panic, that abject spasm through a minute and three quarters of swampy discord and sonic confusion.
