debut double cassette out now on weird forest!!!

my first solo record is now available as a sweet-looking limited edition double cassette on the weird forest label:

double cd to follow in a couple months, also on weird forest.
then vinyl if you all buy up the first two runs.
then eight track for the purists & hold outs.
……& lastly player hammered dulcimer for the amish.
we’ve put a lot of thought in to this is what i’m saying.

promising potential collabo in the works

i don’t want to jinx this one before it’s done, but i am really excited to be able to give you guys a little taste of a long distance filesharing kind of collaboration i’ve been working on these past months with a guy who clearly makes up in passion what he lacks in clothing for his upper body.

feel the rhythm with your hands!
