Pretty cool little 18 min documentary put together by the nice folks at Ableton about the band Battles. Check out their process writing and recording and see how they all work separately, but then together.
My pals Big Figment are putting on a show in Williamsburg next Saturday to help raise funds for their new album. It’s going to be an all day event featuring some of Brooklyn’s most creative peeps! Here’s their official press release:
“Big Figment invites one and all to a multimedia salon and barbecue at the Elysium Garden (44 Maujer St., first floor) in Williamsburg on Saturday, May 2nd from 1PM to 10PM. It will feature a broad spectrum of performances (poetry, lecture, sci-fi caricature, and music). The event aims to raise funds for the band’s debut LP, with Mama Coco’s Funky Kitchen.
Katie Longofono and Joe Deutschmann will emcee performances by:
[music] Broad & Ry, Scouts, Love Spread, What Prey Tell, Dead Dubs, and Big Figment

This is a mix I made a while back that was released on Cassette and for Jango Radio, and as a token of my appreciation I’ve decided to make it downloadable here to my readers and fans. Just click the cover above to download (or right click “save as”)!
The songs are a mixture of things from various albums of mine and mixed into one continuous track. I hope you enjoy it!
