this is one of the demos alice recorded yesterday =) it’s called “communicate” and it is a take from a tape that will be out at some point with probably about 4 other songs. emily reo recorded and mixed it in our living room and we are v grateful. thank u emily! the words are about not being able to communicate the things you want to in the ways you want to. it’s a simple sentiment but one that was on my mind a lot this spring.
ps we are playing at silent barn tomorrow night w/ petalwar, public hex, and advaeta!
today dan goldberg celebrated the release of his new, beautiful spookfish tape by playing its contents front to back in his new home, bohemian grove. every two songs we switched rooms, from the basement to the backyard to the kitchen, and he ended with car horn off of our earthbound split released last year on patient sounds. congrats dan, you can do it yes you can. and everyone else can purchase the spookfish’s ‘living room’ from the moscow-based tape label singapore sling :)

this is nathaniel whitcomb! he’s one of my favorite visual artists, so when #utourpia passed through michigan last week it was an honor to stay with his family (including the qtest six month old bbgrrrl). nathaniel created the art for my split cassette with mutual benefit, ricky eat acid’s seeing little ghosts everywhere, and m sage’s a singular continent ~ to name a few. in addition to his solo work nathaniel is also behind the helm of @stadiumsshrines, contributing to the web development, content visualizations, and my personal favorite, stadiums & shrines ’ dreams series. in this picture he’s holding the collage made for emily and i which inspired our “dreams of bermuda (yoshi’s story)”. he’s an amazing dude, if those stacks of national geographics didn’t convince you, so look him up. nathaniel & his family are also moving to minneapolis this week! make them feel at home. 💕
