communique from the front

Just pleased as punch (the painful kind, not the tasty kind) to finally announce the long-coming release of a new single and music video that I produced for my friends Oedipus Tex and the ... well, you can read the rest on their site. The video was put together by my good friend Andrew Gralton, and the song was engineered by my friend and former band mate Joe Crockett. They've already got some very nice press from the AV Club and the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's websites, and plans are in the works for a follow-up (or three) ...

Daytrotter finally released the Pezzettino session from July 2011 - I kinda thought they'd given up on us. All I really remember about the session is sweating bullets in the hottest day on record that year - had to turn off the A/C to record - and running Margaret's squeezebox through a Leslie cab. Listening back has been a nice little trip down memory lane, though - this was the peak of our weird little power trio chemistry, and I'm genuinely pretty proud of our performance.

In other news, made the short trip down the block to Howl Street Recordings to lay down some parts on the continuing saga that is Chris DeMay's upcoming album - it's been a long time in the works, but there are some phenomenal songs and epic jams, featuring some of the best musicians in Milwaukee - I promise it will be well worth the wait.

Lastly, but certainly not leastly, I'll be heading South for another tour in April, this time stretching a little farther and a little longer. Excited to see the ocean again, and soak up a little sun far from the frozen North - much thanks to Awendaw Green and the Savannah Songwriters Series for providing the impetus - stay posted for upcoming dates and times.
