"It Is In Our House Now"

This is my new website. I'm going to blog here about whatever I feel like. But first, a few highlights from earlier this year:

Range and Basin
For most of 2020, I've been making a radio program called Range and Basin. It aired weekly on Radio Free Aquarium Drunkard, a mirage like 24-hour-a-day online pirate radio station. A few of the episodes from that era are available on MixCloud. This summer, the show relaunched on Dublab, airing at 5 PM Pacific every third Sunday of the month as part of the RFAD programming block. The show features folk, prog, new age, jazz, minimalism, and whatever else I want to play, as well as counterculture esoterica, science fiction clips, and vintage radio textures. You can listen on Dublab. Individual shows are archived for Patreon supporters.

Symphony of Souls: On the Hippie Christian Folk of The Trees Community
For Aquarium Drunkard, I told the story of the Trees Community, a small band of NYC outsiders who lived as a traveling monastic order in the 1970s playing devotional folk music that connected the avant-garde to the sacred. We see every single day what dangerous religious thinking looks like and results in. The Trees, rooted in communal acid trip mind-melding sessions, suggest a kind of creative and generative faith practice. 

Been hosting a weekly talk show for Aquarium Drunkard called Transmissions, which is available wherever you get podcasts and direct at AD. Recent guests have included Phil Elverum, Michael Rother (Neu!/Harmonia), Swamp Dogg, David Crosby, Georgia Anne Muldrow, and many more.

Coronavirus Won’t Kill Independent Record Stores
Talked with Josh Terry for a Vice article about how independent record shops will hopefully survive this nightmare year.

Desert Oracle: Back To The Barrooms
I spoke with Ken Layne of Desert Oracle Radio from the mythical barroom of our mind. The true lodge, perhaps.

More soon.
