NEW VIDEOS

A couple new videos came out yesterday...

The first is for Fadeout Killer off my new LP. Directed by long time pal, the talented David Rendall. This video features my wife, my sister, my mom, and my cousin among other ladies.



The second is a video for 'Window Shades' by U.S. Girls. There's 2 Remy / Twig co-writes on my new album, and this song represents the same dynamic but on Meg's record. Very pleased to have collab'd on such a groovy song with the U.S. Girl. Checkit.

SLIPPIN' SLIDIN' (ERIC COPELAND REMIX)

The whole reason I got signed to DFA was because Calico Corp. put out an Eric Copeland 7" that DFA heard, liked, and investigated the origins of... SO, it is with a wonderfully round and cyclical pleasure that I share this new Copeland remix of Slippin' Slidin'. May the circle be unbroken. IT FUCKING SHREDS.

CHECK IT OUT HERE.

FORMATS

Very pleased to tell you that I'll be returning to Pleasence Records for the tape edition of Thank You For Stickin' With Twig (out August 7th on DFA). As you may recall Pleasence co-released the OG booklet edition LP of A Hound At The Hem. It's great to be working with them again, and to get the record out on CS format.

I also have to say, the most unusual format the album will be released on is the wall-hanging gold record. It would look very regal in your study / office. Fool your friends into believing you're a grizzled music industry vet! Impress your peers with this big time prop.

LP / CD / Digi & Streamable options will of course also be offered. Classique.

COLONIAL SOLUTIONS

Have you heard many good records to be released this year? I've heard a couple, but not so many that I can afford not to recommend one that may not have been heard so widely just yet.

If you're not on 'Sailor Uni' Tim's mailing list you likely have yet to make the acquaintance of Colonial Solutions, the latest from his Dark Chocolate Chips project.

It's a real flipper. You know, one of those cassettes you can flip between sides over and over, content to hear the same fragments of music repeatedly. Music in all different directions. Basement glamour, literate punk, nauseating ambient sound emission, political sound collage... ALL THAT GOOD STUFF. Tim is a truly formidable songwriter, and an interesting sound maker.

Also notable is the odd structure of the album. The B side playing out as an alternate uni version of the A, composed of remixed / remashed / rehashed or otherwise warf'd out versions of the initial side. Or at least that's what Tim tells me. It all sounds gravy fresh to me dood.

Tim is a major playah on the new Twig platter (and platters previous) so if you're in the habit of reading my recommendations on this neglected blog or dig on Twig, do yourself a favour and check this shit out. You won't find it on apple Music anytime soon.

STREAM THE A SIDE HERE.

DL THE WHOLE SHEBANG FOR FWEE.
