about

this summer so far, it has rained gloomy as much as it has been excruciatingly hot, i have sat on my bed feeling sad as much as i have danced around the floor feeling excited, my days have been as vacant as they are busy, it's weird, i just stopped feeling like this is a transitional phase and now feel content for the most part
i hope this music reflects what i've been feeling, listening to, experiencing, laughing at, crying for, and hoping for.
a sweaty, heat-damaged exploration of a bizarre suburban summer. spanning surf rock, drone, indie folk, shoegaze, dub, harsh noise, and even afrobeat.

recorded alone in my bedroom, basement, and on my porch from april - july 2015.

third release of 2015.
