Someone sent us these videos recently. Two contemporary dance pieces in different styles set to Twins. Honored to have seen them.
Music video for the song Polly, the first single off the new album In Roses. Enjoy!
Two live performances of the songs Michael and Soft Season were filmed at Woolly Mammoth studio in Waltham, MA.
Stadiums & Shrines shared a new ambient track that I wrote for their "Dream" series. It originated as a B-side from In Roses - a kind of sister to Nowhere and QY2. I recorded it at home. It's called "Mother In Comet".
Visit Stadiums & Shrines to see the full collage and accompanying text as well as download the free track.
In Roses out today!

Excited to share a new track from In Roses with you. Listen and download to Polly here.
I wrote this song late one night several months ago for a demo I was working on for the new In Roses record. By that point I had become real tired of writing with the piano, so I dialed up some organ + poly synth combos on an SK20. The end of the song came before anything else. Over and over again and I kept thinking about why--in that sort of automatic writing state, in the late hours--was she coming through? Together we went into these landscapes, her trajectory, and that unbearable notion that sometimes these forces barrel through and rob us of ourselves. Thank you to everyone who helped transition this song into reality. I could have never imagined it's final form.
I'm excited to say our second full-length LP "In Roses", was announced today. It's out Jan 28 on Hardly Art Kristen, Ieva, and I traveled out to San Francisco for about a month to work with some wonderful people who helped us bring these ideas to life. It's a record I'm very proud of and I'm so happy to be able to share it with you. NPR's All Songs Considered has featured the track "Hypericum" on their podcast. More to come soon.
