I've just released a full-length album with the label Usonian Records, digitally and on limited edition 12" vinyl. Here's what they have to say: "To our ears, Hieratic Teen sounds something like the record you'd get if you locked someone in a boiler room for 10 years with only My Bloody Valentine's Loveless to listen to, then let them out, gave them an assortment of synthesizers, and told them to score Logan's Run. But far from being a purely aesthetic exercise, within the fuzzy, sonic beauty of the record's half-broken, warbling synth melodies, distortions, hissing, and undulating, analog depths; an unmistakable human feeling is being communicated. And it keeps pulling us back in." [more inside]
I have released a new album centered around my favourite sounds presented as dense sound fields. The results range from ambient to noise to abstract, with source material like field recordings, noise, and classical music. [more inside]
After ten years, more or less, since putting together an album of my music, I've spent six months polishing off a new one, and so I've taken on a new name - Hammerfest by Milford Progress Association is up on Bandcamp. Give it a spin if you like warm noisy ambient drone. Find it on your favourite streaming service soon.

It's finally here - the epic followup to 2012's Now That's What I Call Drone (previously in Projects and the Blue, with mentions in The Atlantic, Pitchfork and more.) This time out it's Now That's What Your Parents Call Drone. 16 drone/experimental takes on adult contemporary classics. Over an hour and a half of drone pop, deep hypnagogy, glitch weirdness and everything in between, all in service and reverence to Amy Grant, Air Supply, 10cc, Billy Ocean, et al. Featuring MeFi's own Theta States as CPI, yours truly as Vapor Lanes, and a whole host of other swell folks.

With this compilation, the challenge was for musicians to create drone versions of Top 40 pop songs. The word 'drone' was to be interpreted by each artist as they saw fit. The results are varied, interesting, and pretty damn good. Pop drone psychic energy. (Yes, "Call Me Maybe" is in here.) [more inside]
