tabs out reviewed the “plod and play, vol. 1” tape recently. read that review here. thanks!
i’m very excited to be playing this tuesday with rafael toral and pete fosco at dreamland here in louisville, ky. my friend jonah o’neil is accompanying my set with visuals and we’ve been working hard on developing a meaningful audiooptic experience. afterwards, things will likely quiet down here during the winter.
in the meantime, don’t forget that two new releases came out this year. in the spring, city state tapes put out a tape called ‘plod and play, vol. 1’ release. these were a collection of old tone poems that i have gradually compiled over the years. a second volume will hopefully eventually be released. later in the summer, west main development put out a cd called ‘four of five in six and seven’, a collage of live recordings from the previous six months prior to release. i hope you enjoy both.
here are some shows i am playing this summer. i’ll try to add more info/links/flyers as they come but wanted to get this up in the meantime.

here’s a new t-shirt printed by kopilot press and designed by thaniel ion lee. these are american apparel t-shirts and one is a cranberry shirt with red and pink ink and the other is a silver shirt with orange and yellow ink.
i’m excited to be playing a sweet record store day party for my pal jim’s shop astro black. it’s a daytime hangout. i’ll be either playing in astro black/fat rabbit or next door at kaiju. while record store day has been a bummer for independent labels, the spirit of celebrating a record store is still something i can appreciate. further, i’m optimistic that the city state tapes ‘plod & play, vol. 1’ release will be in hand for the show too.
the facebook page for the event is here. kin ship goods made the sweet flier below too.
i’ll also be opening for sam prekop on his tour stop in louisville in mid-may. more details for that and maybe other releases soon. beep!
