Out now, my newest with Tyler Weaver is pure ArtsnCraftsPunk. Catch it over on the re/emergence page.
Such a great review of You Can Never Leave by Antonio Poscic in the newest edition of The Wire, and not just because he has nice things to say about my contribution. More below:
Elizabeth Joan Kelly makes a flock of strings and percussion flicker like a failing simulation, while Apta, Moray Newlands and The Snaps Jar use the collapsing elation of synths and motivational messages to cut through the fabricated optimism and false sense of safety with unsettling satire. Despite its crowdsourced nature, You Can Never Leave is cohesive and succeeds where many highly conceptual works fail. It really makes you feel the misanthropic essence of capitalism.
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.
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?
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.
