Merciless Pitchfork Review


Someone at Pitchfork fucked up twice. First, he or she let Marc Masters review my latest Type LP. Second, they forgot to edit out all the nice things he said about it. Go read it for yourself.

Kidding aside, I am sincerely honored. I know how hard it is to get works like this onto the site and appreciate Marc's effort to do so in addition to his kind words.

Secret Thirteen Mix

I recently did a mix for the website Secret Thirteen entitled Thirteen Years. You can stream and read a bit about it here.

The mix highlights one track per year of each year I've been active in the noise/experimental music community (discounting a couple prior alone in hometown and our current spin around the sun), trying to keep the emphasis on tracks that were a.) influential to my work and b.) made an impact on me immediately upon release. (This was especially important  for the earlier years with numerous highly influential releases  discovered well after the fact.) I  am exceptionally proud of it.

Stream/download away.
