As you might have seen, I put together a band to perform Demonic Sweaters material called “Thee Demonic Sweaters”. We’re playing a string of shows this summer, and this fundraiser is to allow us to go into a recording studio as a full band to record our set that we are playing out at shows this summer.
Even though I wrote and recorded these songs myself playing all of the instruments, the band really puts a unique take on them, and we really want to be able to share and release a better representation of what the live show is like.
The $1500 will go for getting some time in Deep Dive Studio here in Brooklyn, NY https://www.deepdiverecording.com/, which Mitch Rackin runs, and is the former engineer of the now-defunct but legendary Seaside Lounge studio in Sunset Park Brooklyn. Studio time is set for October of 2022.
The breakdown of the funding goes to two full studio days, plus a little extra to cover gofundme fees.
Once the recording is finished it will be released digitally via Bandcamp and on Spotify and other streaming services.
Your help and support are greatly appreciated!! Thank you so much!

My latest album, In Depth is now complete, and I am really proud of this one. I think it came out great! The album is available right now for Patrons only, and will be released later this summer for the rest of the world.
This amazing cover art was done by my friend Ligang Luo. I really think this album is one of my best to date, and features a nice mix of live instruments with tracker tunes, drums, bass, guitar, synths, and Milkytracker. It’s experimental, and lifts you up in sections, then takes you to the depths in others. It’s 11 songs and about 40 minutes long. If you become a Patron for any amount at https://www.patreon.com/demonicsweaters you’ll get it right now. There is also a beautiful foldout insert also done by Ligang. You can really help out by becoming a patron, plus you’ll get some awesome music!
So many times people say, “why don’t you put vocals on your recordings?” well I do sometimes, like on this song/video above for the 2014 song, Sculpted View. I made this video with my old VHSc camera and with the help of my Boyfriend Victor as camera man. I just realized it’s been on YouTube quietly for years, so thought I’d give it a little push again.
The song is about my first boyfriend after coming out, and the image I made of him in my head verses the reality of the type of person he was.
