    Recycled cardboard wallet with shaky poetics (words exclusive to this format and run) and a plain white cdr within. I do not have a steady hand.

    This is CDr edition one, a run of 7 copies. 1 per customer. This is the first of a couple runs of general release CDrs, of which there will be more than the beautiful cassette release via Botanist in March. These are what I'll have with me at shows.

The sounds of a time
I never thought I'd reach
yet here I sit, pained still
looking backwards through the night sky at it.

Tapes available via Botanist (complete with recently noticed typo)

Also available on M.I.S.T.

The Never Years, much like it's predecessors, explores the psyche over space and time, and is very much a personal exorcism of the ghosts of past selves. It is also a confrontation, a recognition of the absurdity of every waking day in juxtapose to the somatic tumults of my recent past. It is also about violets and indigos, treetops, fireworks, blacklights, gods that emerge from warm places, stars and moons with beautiful oceans, silks and spices, and the broken human narrative. It is an attempt to further integrate free improvisation (channeled through the most potent set of Camp Century transmissions yet) and is a personal rejection of logic and reason in favor of abstract emotional navigations and traversals..
