so, i have a new lp, ‘coquina dose’ up for pre-order from florabelle records in brooklyn, my first solo one since 2013.
a little about the record:
coquina dose is the book on your nightstand before bed under a lamp with a 40 watt bulb. it’s driving alone at night up and down the strip looking for a pool to crash. it’s the endless lights of luxury, hotels, oceanfront dining. it’s dogs barking, the wind off the water, dead friends, and sunsets that are no longer free. everything humming, everything buzzing. then there is the freezing air conditioning…the sandy tile in the foyer, my grandmother cooking in the kitchen, my sister playing card games on the floor, my mother in the shade, scanning the gulf. a communion with poseidon, an avoidance of progression, jason drumming. it’s a new day, in the same circuit. short interesting rides, followed by a loss of momentum. notes of grass, lychee, pineapple, burnt sugar.
mk1 harvestman oscillators, doepfer filters, fancy samplers, broken samplers, an acoustic guitar borrowed from a friend of a friend so long ago that i’m fairly certain they forgot they owned it, all manner of tape sizes, speeds, and quality, boss pedals, a bucket, some bells, a copy of the new florida history edited by michael gannon, hoppy pale ales.
anyway, thought maybe some here might enjoy. i hope you do, and thanks for listening. if anyone has any questions or anything i’m happy to chat and expand on things.
