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.
“Thanks to their production my mind started to flow weightless through mystique hallways that come to me across as a maze of tunnels and doors. Sometimes the music bursts through those doors, knocking them open to go deeper into this fairy kind of minimal surrealism & to be fair; get slightly lost in this place that seems to be the starting point of many more adventures.”
Thanks to one of my favorite music blogs, Slow Breathing Circuit, for the Q&A and guest mix! I got to show off some of my current favorites, including Alison’s Disapproval, Vic/Vicky, Maison Blanche, Baïkonour, Deerhoof, maarja nuut & ruum, Jumping Back Slash, Xqui, Lafawndah, and Thundercat.
(also…avant-garde tunes, plane crashes, and turtles seems like the perfect distillation of my favorite conversation topics).
