Tour this month

It's been five years since i played more than three shows in a row, let's see if i can still do this.

I had surgery a month ago and i'm not entirely convinced i'm able to do full vocals in the way i usually do, so if you're at a show and it seems a little more instrumental than you're expecting that's the reason.

In case it's not clear we aren't playing the Cambridge show.

A Removal to Elsewhere

New 5 song EP available now, on every digital platform i've ever heard of (except soundcloud) and a number i'm unaware of.

Tapes are available on tour this month and will end up with the usual suspects after we return.

Lyrically it's about the body outlasting the brain and the brain's awareness of its failings, inspired by family members with dementia and dementia type illness and decades of working in mental health.

Musically the process was different than our other releases; between family and employment responsibilities the ability to get in the same room with any regularity was hard to do for most of 2018, so we worked on materially together, took it away and worked on it individually, then reconvened to add more to the material as a duo and complete the tracks.

Full of Hell/ Intensive Care split 7"

A nod to the Bovine Records approach.

Diprivan was written after another shit day in Toronto's ongoing opiod crisis. Harm Reduction and Housing First forever.

Background Music

Available now on Absurd Exposition, 30 minute tape of recycled synths and field recordings, not entirely removed from the material in Intensive Care that isn't bass/ drums/ vocals.

Unfortunately i can't make this available for streaming/ download currently.

Everything has its Price

New Intensive Care record, available here, released on January 26th.

Art by Ashley Hohman.

Two songs, 300 copies, there was a conscious effort after Voyeurism to write a record that was a more  straight forward two guys playing music thing, this is sort of that.

The songs on this record deal with the anxieties created by living in modern cities.

Our Earth's Blood

New release on Survivalist, available here

Pro-recorded and mastered 90 minute Bastard Noise tape with side long collaborations with Hiroshi Hasegawa (Astro, C.C.C.C.) and Facialmess.

It came out pretty great if i do say so myself.

Cheap shipping options available.

Seek the Way Amidst the Ruins

I recently did a remix for Toronto guitar drone ensemble Gates.

My approach was to take elements from the original track and rebuild it with new processing, layering newly filtered elements, keeping a repeated refrain from the original piece to anchor it.

The layering was loosely inspired by various early 70s recordings involving Klaus Schultz and Conrad Schnitzler.
