hello friends and exes!
Yes, its true i really have spent a lot of time listening to the new mbv and enjoying it THOROUGHLY
This weekend really seemed to come together for that band in terms of the weather in new york and the whole vibe
I really am someone who leans towards OLDER STUFF pretty weird right?
I love the last sleater kinney album i love the new portishead. i like later ani difranco. hell i even like newer aimee mann
i like later erykah badu and i LOVE later beethoven just kidding i have no idea

some other things that have been inspiring me lately have been my trip to new york jail!
honestly this story is worth inquiring about NYPD ARE NAZIS ROT IN HELL NAZIS
they tried and failed to make my life VERY annoying but they definitely succeeded in making it just plainly annoying
mom if youre reading this i just didnt want to worry you!!

Got to record on a real true blue steinway piano this weekend. everything sounding good!
still teasing about that single and its still almost done

also discovered this guys paintings anthony cudahy, love his stuff check it out

SHANE: YOU MAY NEVER READ THIS BUT NOW WE ARE BONDED IN BLOOD FOREVER DID YOU KNOW THAT?

wanted to continue with a few things that are moving me this week including




THIS NEW BUKE AND GASE ALBUM STREAMING AT NPR
when i was living in hudson i got to know these guys a litle BRAG BRAG BRAG and they are
as awesome as their band.
Honestly, when i see them live i think to myself "this music was made for me"
its everything satisfying about a live music experience and this album is a perfect document.
listen to it for free for the next few days or so and then buy it at the end of the month
their record comes out on brassland

ALSO, I finally saw "the Master" VERY GOOD FLICK RIGHT?
I am spinning the score right now on an UNNAMED MUSIC STREAMING SERVICE RIGHT NOW ITS GREAT GREAT GREAT

In other news ive been spinning a lot of this new jojo mix tape agape.
it reminds me of hometown girls in the best way. massachusetts, haverhill, west newbury, amesbury, newburyport IM TALKING TO YOU




Aand  in other new besides, my buddy nat baldwin got me in to see
the dirty projectors MURDER carnegie hall the other day.
inspiring, dynamic set. AND OUR SEATS WERE INSANE 4TH ROW BRAG BRAG BRAG BRAG
I once saw joanna newsome at carnegie hall which was also a great, beautiful show but it just
couldnt compare to feeling like i was actually on stage. looking back at the audience i felt like i was in eyes wide shut
or a woody allen movie about the mega wealthy A GREAT FEELING TO INHABIT FOR A MOMENT

hi! we've got our first show of the year coming up, this thursday at cameo gallery in brooklyn in brooklyn
we play at 9 but i'm really excited about the other bands too, including our new friend band companion!

recently i really enjoyed my buddy liz pelly's interview with my idol carrie brownstein for the boston phoenix blog
especially when she said this about playing live:


What excites you most about playing music right now?

I love performing. I love playing live. This was probably also true 5 years ago or 10 years ago. But I think now more than ever, people are putting a premium on the live performance. It's the one thing right now that doesnít feel ephemeral. Thereís so much music thatís released every day. Thereís so much to discover and that sense of infinite discovery is very exciting but itís also exhausting. Seeing a performer live is the thing that feels the most permanent, the most real, the most edifying. It just cuts through the static.

Technology can compartmentalize and disintegrate moments. As much as it can nurture a moment, technology can also disintegrate a moment. So getting to play and perform live for an audience has a way of cohering all of these disparate parts of ourselves and our lives. Itís very gratifying. I think thatís the best part of playing music right now. And I think that when I see bands that can really perform live, those are the bands that start to mean the most to me right now.


i agree! i used to feel like more of a recording artist, but now i urge yall to check us out live. its more where i am at and i promise
i will BRING YOU THERE AS WELL. I LOOK FORWARD TO IT
HAPPY NEW YEAR
