Coming soon: A Picture of Good Health Vol 3

I’m happy to once again contribute to Wormhole World’s compilation series A Picture of Good Health. Volume 3 comes out in two parts on July 14 as a digital release and CD. I’m on 3.2 with so many music friends and collaborators including Letters From Mouse, Toxic Chicken, Xqui, Whettman Chelmets, WIP, BoyCalledCrow, Geiger von Müller, Sound Effects Of Death And Horror, and Alan Morse Davies, to name just a few. Proceeds go to CALM, and pre-release is available now.

Skylab Radio Charts

Trinity Quadrant Cantata” from Farewell, Doomed Planet! is #11 on Skylab Radio’s charts this week. Thanks for listening, and catch Skylab through the digital radio platform of your choice here.

Also, fun fact, the song is based on J.S. Bach’s Ich ruf zu dir, Herr Jesu Christ (BWV 177), which is also the closing song on Deerhoof’s excellent new album Future Teenage Cave Artists:

A themed Hypnagogue Podcast

This is fun–the newest Hypnagogue episode pairs up songs from the vast Hypnagogue database that have the same titles. Compare and contrast my “Departure” with Cryobiosis’s, along with seven other duos of name-matched songs. Plus, the music’s just good. Listen on the Hypnagogue website or below.

Interview on Parenthetical Recluse

Tyler Weaver had me on Parenthetical Recluse as his inaugural interview for a new series. Hear me ramble on about existential dread, Philip Glass, Earth, Wind & Fire, solo accordion free jazz, MAD MEN, and more (very on brand, right?). Read here, and a big thanks to Tyler for asking great questions, and for the kind words about my music.

Delia Derbyshire charity compilation

I’m so pleased to be on an upcoming charity compilation curated by John from Sound Effects Of Death And Horror (SEODAH) and released by Wormhole World. It features 13 artists who have joined together to celebrate the work of Delia Derbyshire, Wendy Carlos and other electronic pioneers, and proceeds will go to support Delia Derbyshire Day, a charity with the objectives of advancing the education of the public in music technology and the history and art of British electronic music via the archive and works of Delia Derbyshire.

Pre-orders will open on Friday 10 April when a lead track by ME! will be launched, and the album will be released on May 15.

There’s a nice write-up and the full track listing up on Louder Than War, check it out!

Support Artists on Bandcamp During Covid-19

This Friday, Bandcamp is waiving revenue shares to help support artists affected by COVID-19. As much as I’d love you to buy my music, my income isn’t dependent on it and I’d rather you join me in supporting artists who are hurting.

Looking for recommendations? Check out my Bandcamp collection & wishlist, and try especially to support artists who have had shows cancelled, or whose retail/service/gig economy/other day jobs have been cancelled or restricted by COVID-19.

As thanks, here are some Bandcamp yum codes for free downloads of Music for the DMV:
