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.
Go on a trip without leaving your house thanks to the new Funderground episode from Yeah I Know It Sucks. Features “Exclusion Zone Earth (Or, All Hail Chernobyl Wolves)” as well as so many of my favorites like HAWN, Xqui, Headboggle, Jude Montague, Petridisch, and Cloud Diameter. See the full tracklist on the Yeah I Know It Sucks website and listen on Mixcloud or below.
The newest episode of Kites and Pylons Radio Show is out and includes a guest mix I curated with music by Delia Derbyshire (c/o UbuWeb), Kui Dong, Whettman Chelmets, Xqui, Pamela Z, Emra Grid, Black Robert, Barbara Kruger, Qwerteest, and me, plus a session with Rupert Lally and much more. Listen over on Mixcloud or below.
So many thanks to Louder Than War for adding Farewell, Doomed Planet! to its top 200 albums of the year! I’m in excellent company with music friends Xqui, Equinox, and Whettman Chelmets, and influences such as Thom Yorke, Lingua Ignota, Mica Levi, Moor Mother, + so many others. See the full list here and keep an eye out for the top 50, which promises to be fantastic!
Thanks to Neil from Trust the Doc for reviewing my new single “Harm” off upcoming album Farewell, Doomed Planet! An excerpt:
…the ambient soundscape gradually grows in volume and intensity, almost but not quite engulfing the voices before it judders to a halt one second short of three minutes (so radio programmers, take note – perfect length for airplay). So another fine track by this versatile artist.
Full review up on the blog (also a review of my buddy Xqui!).
I’ve got a brand new track, “Unusual Capsule,” on Prosthion Recordings’ compilation This Machine Confuses Fascists: An ACLU Benefit Compilation. It’s available on Bandcamp for just $5, and that gets you 35 tracks from some of my favorite Twitter friends as well as some new-to-me musicians. Proceed to a good cause, aka human rights.
