What Is This?
I have many things to share with you each week: unreleased recordings, videos I've made for my songs through online deep dives, things left behind as my projects changed shape. I have writings, thoughts on process, and some full-on stories. When I first started making things I was feverish and uploaded everything as I finished it. I still binge-make and find it very difficult to hold on to what I've created. I will be more generous here, a place where I can send things right away as they come to be. I love making albums and bigass videos, but so much Stuff is lost along the way that deserves a home. Also, when I start cooking up my next record I intend to bring you with me in real time.
I will be sharing all kinds of content for both free and paid subscribers. I want to use this place as a way to CONNECT. Can you handle that? Can I? I have been unhinged on Twitter for some time now, but there is a certain seasoning to interactions there that doesn't sit right with me. This place allows for a little more world-building—I think we can cultivate a similar deranged spirit together and SUSTAIN IT. Rats to the front.
