LIVING: LOTS OF IT
New album nearing completion, ArcTanGent Festival, Guardian, Spin Magazine…
14 April 2014
Ok, things are happening. First, I’ve been locked in Greenmount Studios mixing the final chunks of the new record. There’s lots to talk about, but I really want this thing to speak for itself. Let’s just say it’s more diverse than Semicircle, yet somehow simultaneously places greater emphasis on both dense drone and bulletproof pop songs.
Speaking of Semicircle, the record was recenty feaured in a Guardian list for the “101 Strangest Records on Spotify”, mentioning “hot, crunchy blood”, and “heavywight tape-manipulating chop-n-pop”. Click here to read the full review.
Next, check out Katie Harkin (who is playing/singing all over my new record) talking about her recent months touring with Sleater-Kinney in SPIN Magazine, and casually namedropping said forthcoming record.
Finaly, I’ve also been asked to play this years fantastic ArcTanGent Festival. This is going to be off the chain, people!
2014 IN BRIEF (AND ONWARD)…
Recording, writing, recording, another festive mixtape, etc.

As I sat down to write this binary tidbit, I realized what a busy year 2014 has been (as evidenced by this page’s lack of updates). Time files, and I’ve written too many songs. Recording them is taking up another gigantic heft of time, but a new album is well underway. Thankfully, last year I made two FESTIVE MIXTAPES so I could put this one out now and pretend like I just made it. Thanks, 2013 me. You must have known I had a lot of shit going on. Drop it:
P.S. – CLICK HERE FOR A FREE DOWNLOAD, until it breaks. And apologies about the Zippyshare link. If there’s an easy, free way to share big files on the internet, I’ve yet to figure it out. If you’re so inclined, you can take these files and record them onto both sides of a C90 Cassette tape. Awesome free gift idea!
P.P.S. – While we’re on the subject of gifts, there’s only 11 copies of Semicircle vinyls left in the JUFFAGE WEBSTORE.
