We played one of our coolest shows yet on Sunday night. Earlier in the year, I made the acquaintance of one John Davis. You might remember him as one half of the indie duo Folk Implosion (his partner in that project being Lou Barlow of Sebadoh/Dinosaur Jr. fame). The suggestion was made that he come… Continue reading 2017.10 | Show Explosion
Last Thursday, I tracked guitars and vocals with J.D. for “Over and Over”, “Tabula Rasa”, and “Motivational”: • “Over and Over” is not a song I had originally considered for the album (having recorded it at home, I was considering it for my recent Obscura collection until I realized I was keen on a lyric… Continue reading 2017.9 | Recording Update + Shows
This sounds much worse than it actually was, but it was definitely a trying time! The premise was simple: my first show in Arkansas since the Pneumatic Girls played there in 2013, plus a chance to get one of my best friends (Robert M. Jones) back on stage one more time. It expanded some to… Continue reading 2017.8 – Ar-can’t-saw

So here’s what’s new: The band has reconvened with new drummer Josh Stevens of Glorious Abhor fame. We are playing a show March 4th at the P&H (aka ‘the usual haunt’) and Justin Sax (of The Original Cyndi) is sitting in on keys for Mr. Pulley. Album numero dos is forming. There have been many… Continue reading 2017.2 – Motivational Poster
Starting off 2017 by assessing 2016 makes sense, right? I don’t know. Frankly, I’m exhausted from analyzing every sad twist and turn of that year. Maybe the better thing to do is make note of some things that did work out last year: 1. Sometimes remixing a song IS the right thing to do. “Ampersands”… Continue reading 2017.1: Sacred Geometry
My third post this month … if only it wasn’t a ponderous one. Well here we are, America. This is the person we selected to represent us, the person we chose to hold the power of veto, and the commander-in-chief. I don’t need to tell you how grave the situation is, because you already know.… Continue reading What To Do Now?
