Columbia Missouri 10/19/14
Our first day of tour was great. We started off with a hike in the lake of the ozarks. It’s absolutely gorgeous. If you ever get a chance check it out. After the hike we set out towards Columbia for our first show. The first thing we learned about Missouri is that a lot of people pronounce it Missourah. The second thing we learned is that while basements are super sketchy to us no one else seems to think so. Our friend Jesse of Folk-O-Rama fame put on the show for us at his house. It was a fuckin great show. We played with another touring band called Youngest Children who were pretty rad and our new friend Catfish Steve who we will be playing a few shows with on this tour, as well as a couple rad locals. The next morning we recorded a new Folk-O-Rama session along with Catfish Steve so look out for that. Some sweet kids came out from Arkansas (which is super far) and together they operate an organic farm down there. They brought us a bunch of turnips and radishes which we have been munchin on since (thank you). We will miss you Columbia, stay rad!!

Folk-O-Rama 4 artwork premiere! Done once again by my good friend Wes Harbison (http://heswarbison.tumblr.com). Official release date still to be determined. But very soon!

October 27!

Okay! Official release date for Folk-O-Rama 4 is a week from today. That’s October 27. Also here’s a little collage thing I made to be the new cover for the Folk-O-Rama Sessions album on Bandcamp. I think it turned out kind of neat. I also recorded new sessions today with Moon Bandits and Catfish Steve which will be up in the next couple of weeks!

So here is the thing, we are going on tour throughout the Midwest. Half of the money we make at the door will be going to Bridgetown DIY in La Puente, a collective space that we have been personally involved with now for about a year and a half. The other half will be used for tour…

Click that link above for Moon Bandits tour dates. The Columbia date is at my house. Should be fun.

"At the End of South Washington" 

I haven’t talked about this album a lot really, but now that the tapes are here & the zines are printed with nice card stock metallic covers, it feels really done. And I feel really proud. 

This album is 10 songs. I wrote most of them living at 1424 S. Washington. Two songs about being emotionally unavailable/thick skinned/why. One song about being young and gay in Pleasant Mills, Indiana. One song about my best friend’s band practicing in the basement. One and a half songs about being in love with people who are bad for me. One black and white porch cat. Two lines about shirts. Rabbit hunting. Mall maps. Paper cuts. Secrets I am tired of having.

I worked really hard on the songs for this album and they mean a lot to me. Some things are hard to say. I tried to be embarrassingly honest. 

The zine is 36 pages, black and white. Lyrics for all the songs, some of them have notes. Updates on my two younger sisters, photos of friends/places, big thank yous, some writing, and noise. It seemed important to me to have a nice zine to give with the album. It makes me feel like I’m giving a whole picture or something.

A lot of people have been very encouraging and kind to me. Thank you very very much. 

Cassette was put out by GHOST FRIEND RECORDS in San Diego, CA. Ghost Friend doesn’t have any online presence, so you can order a tape through me if you want.
