November News

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I’m spending it with my San Diego family and hope you’re preparing to gang up on a turkey with your loved ones, too. I’ve been without a computer for a spell, so to sum up the last couple months……. In October, I joined up with Bouquet to hop on the last 2 weeks of Mount Eerie‘s US tour. We played 14 shows in 14 days from Arizona to Washington and had a blast doing it. Phil Elverum’s current lineup is a mostly very young group of Anacortes,WA-based multi-instrumentalists. They are all great folks and sound great together. Highly reccomend!!! Here’s a group shot from underneath the Cozmic Cafe in Placerville:

Bouquet & Mount Eerie // L to R: Nick, Carolyn, Aaron, Paul, Allison, Carson (standing) Tom, Phil (seated), and Me (up front)

Worth mentioning are a couple CDs I acquired along the way that I cannot stop listening to. Do yourself a solid and get your hands on these:

  • Overgrown Path by Chris Cohen ::: The last show of our tour was the first show of his, supporting his first proper solo album. Very glad I snagged a copy. Incredible songwriting. He was a member of Deerhoof during my favorite period of their’s (Apple’O) and I can see now what an influence he probably had on their music at the time.
  • Aggressively Humble by CHLL PLL ::: In Placerville we played with local band Biosexual. Upon hearing of my Zach Hill obsession, their drummer Zac Nelson gave me a copy of this cd they made together. Hill provides the insane drumming, as usual, over which Nelson layered keyboards, harmonized vocals and electronics. The two have a ridiculous chemistry and surprisingly, for all it’s hyper-progressive elements and complex production, a lot of these songs are catchy as hell… Jocelyn Noir (other Biosexual member) also gave me a tape of her solo project ALAK and it is also totally amazing! I’m pretty sure Placerville is a secret UFO landing ground and these guys are humanoid alien expats living in the forest sending letters home via their bandcamp pages…… All in all, I’m really down with this crew and will be keeping up on their output.

After returning home with the songs all honed in, Bouquet tracked 5 songs at Roy Silverstein’s home studio in SD. They will hopefully be released next year in the form of a couple 7″ records. This was not before I did a session at Eddie Rivas’ Total Annihilation Studio for Bostonian brass man and composer David Dominique. We got a group together of my favorite partners in crime to lay down David’s Mingus-inspired jazz works. Brian Walsh, Joe Santa Maria, Gavin Templeton, Alex Noice, Colin Burgess, Eric Km Clark, and the leader on flugabone. Looking forward to hear how these albums turn out!

I bought a drumKat. I wonder where this will lead me. Got some ideas…

December will be a pretty chill month. Preparing a four night stint at the Prototype Festival in NYC with Timur and the Dime Museum. More on that…… here.
