After over two months of driving across North America and screaming at strangers, I am back in NJ!
Calling it a "whirlwind" truly does the level of absolute chaos and joy I experienced no justice at all. I'll just say that I'm so glad there are so many amazing cuties and weirdos willing to find cathartic release with me through the power of what can perhaps only be described as synthpop grindcore rave. (We've been calling it "spazzpop for almost a decade now though, eh?)
I'm extremely excited to get back out there!!

In other news, I have a new soundtracky album of battle music, breaks, ambience, and happy hardcore over on the Catthew bandcamp, which is perfect timing because daaang I need some work!! I'm a music teacher and gigging bassist, and some sociopath in Vancouver broke into where I was staying and smashed my fucxing bass for no reason at all. Add to that the EXTREMELY expensive car repairs I ended up with as soon as the tour ended and I'm lookin' at being stuck for a while.

It's also now possible to listen to Critters and TAFKA8LDM on Spotify! I sold out of Critters tapes and EVERY NIGHT of tour, at least one person asked me if I was gonna put Critters on Spotify. THERE IT IS! (Apple Music too)

In the meantime, I'm mixing Perfect Life & Other Stuff, a mini-album I started in 2006(!) and will be releasing on MY favorite obscure format: mini-CD
That will be courtesy of my friends at Pattern Recognition Records.

Oh! And I have new t-shirt and tanktop designs for sale!

Okay, that's enough of me pretending to know how to URL. Bye!
