Library Sounds Tape

Back in June, I had a special cassette released out of Portugal from the venerable OTA label called Library Sounds.
 This was released on 50 different covers from Fernando Brito and features over 40 minutes of hazy, mind-waves that drown all of your senses. It's a homage to ultra-weird library music from the 60's and 70's.

For Cassette Store Day, artist copies were finally made available in North America and only a few remain. Make sure to snag one from below!

Also, I have two Life Education cassettes dropping soon-ish: Soul Examination from Frequency Domain (UK) and Self-Titled from Crippled Records of Denver. Preview both below and also keep an eye out for some Denver shows in 2018.

Healing Music

In late 2015, my daughter Sevigny was diagnosed with Leukemia. In an attempt at healing and understanding the madness of the situation, I turned to music. The result was two companion albums, Master Generator and Songs for Healing. Both of them are dedicated to Sevigny.

Master Generator was just released in a very special limited edition CD package out of the Bay Area by Time Released Sound. All of their profits will be donated to the local Denver non-profit charity, the Creston J. Walker Foundation, who helped us tremendously last year when we first found out about Sevi’s diagnosis.

Partial proceeds from my sales will also be donated to the foundation. The chrome companion of Master Generator was also just released by A Giant Fern out of Portugal, both physical items can be purchased directly from me here. Songs for Healing will be released on limited edition cassette this Fall on These Are Not Records.

Please note: I’m still waiting for my tapes to arrive from Portugal so there might be a slight delay in shipping.

Please check out the music below and support a good cause!
