All Points West Festival! New American Music Union Festival!

We went festival hopping last weekend!! First stop was the APW Festival on Friday night. It was by coincidence that the logistics were pretty easy. Both of the friends we stayed with happened to live within blocks of public transit we needed to take. Getting a good night’s rest the night before…Here’s me snuggled deep… Read more »

Beanstalk // Iota Has New Bathrooms!

The Beanstalk boys played a pretty amazing set the other night at Iota. Another one down. They’re at Black Cat in about a week if you don’t want to miss out. Brett’s keys were angled in just the right direction to make funny faces at me and Natalie. Also of note, Iota has newly renovated… Read more »

Congratulations Brett

You’re officially a nerd. I thought Brett couldn’t top himself after getting 100% and 98% on his Geology exams. These pictures were taken at a Borders (fittingly) in New York a few weeks ago.

It’s their first collaboration in 30 years… I believe that’s a reference to “My Life in the Bush of Ghosts” from 1981, which is famous for using “found” sounds and cross-pollinating everything from world music to dance to funk and sheer quirkiness. Some weirdass shit for sure. And that was in… Read more »

ee cummings poem adapted by Jeff Ivins

We bust our asses to tour and play music mainly because we love it… “Everything else is just hot air,” to quote Karl Malone in one of his shoe commercials back in the day. (Em and I used to get such a kick out of that commercial). Still nothing beats a few of the kindest… Read more »

Back at Inner Ear…

Last Friday night, suzi and I found ourselves back at Inner Ear Studio, recording strings for fellow musician, Alex Nixon of Zulu Pearls. Produced by Nick Anderson (also of Zulu Pearls), the 3-song record is dubbed Submarine of Survivors — sounds dark and beautiful already… actually, what we’ve heard of it is indeed very beautiful….
