++++++++ kk news and feelings ++++++++
Good day to you squares and rectangles out there! We’ve been away from the computer for a bit and it seems lots of exciting things are in our midsts (mists?)
First off, we are a couple weeks out from finishing the Boneglow / Delusions split cassette. I love the crazy electronic music scene going on in Ann Arbor (Ghostly, Kowhi, Chrome Sparks, FTHRSN, etc) and am excited to contribute in a small way to getting the word out about this fantastic duo. The split is between the two members of Dreampeter so make sure to keep an eye on that project as well. Order/Listen
I’m fresh off of a wonderful Little Spoon + Mutual Benefit tour where we got to meet tons of internet buds who became real buds (and vice versa?). One such person was Tonje from No Fear of Pop who recorded a magical Mutual Benefit sxsw set + a nice video of me playing Auburn Epitiaphs up on a bushwick roof as part of NFOP x FMLY series (!!!).
Speaking of Little Spoon, Cameron recently put up Dreem Sweet; an hour long ambient record that has all but knocked out my persistent insomnia and induces “adventurous dreams”. Real pretty. You should also check out his full length, Allergic to Jerks if you haven’t already.
Sam of Ricky Eat Acid has an awesome/silly new label called Unlimited Free Milkshakes and a debut project called Cute Boy Kissing Booth that is currently charming the hell out of my grinch heart.
kassette klub family members Lizard Kisses have a beautiful song up on the Beko 100 compilation called To Recapture. I happened to be around to track some singing on it and to contribute to its wall of soundiness.
My soul brother Noah Klein has preemptively avoided legal + postemptively corrected academy award issues by changing his performing moniker from philip seymour hoffman to Cuddle Formation. He’ll be hitting the road with mutual benefit + little spoon + Emily Reo + Hear Hums as well as Dreampeter to play Total Bummer in Orlando this Cinco de Mayo weekend! I’ll be putting up everyone’s tourdates as they get confirmed but we couldn’t be happier about playing shows again and sharing the love.
Lastly, I’m very sorry if some of you haven’t received the Ricky Eat Acid tape yet. I found out that some of them had a duplication error on side A so I’m going back through and fixing it before I send out any more. That should be all fixed up soon and we’ll be back to caught up on orders. email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions!
So much love
