  5. Jon Mueller’s Death Blues — Non-fiction (Sige)

    dustedmagazine:

    Jon Mueller is not a hierarchically oriented guy. The drummer, multi-instrumentalist and conceptualist behind Death Blues has collaborated with surface agitator Gino Robair and Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon, and you can be sure that whichever he’s playing with, he’s not thinking about anyone else. The whole point of the Death Blues endeavor is to deal with right now, because you can only be sure of this — both you, and this moment, are going to end and be gone forever. They may not happen at the same time, but both events will be equally absolute. So what are you going to do about it?

  7.  - The Apothecary

    plays: 6

    Just found out that The Apothecary, a documentary I did the score for last year won the award for Best Documentary earlier this month at the 41st annual Student Academy Awards.

    The film was made by the uber-talented film maker Helen Hood Scheer, and  is still making the rounds playing at multiple festivals this summer.

    Emptied Animal, the debut release from William Ryan Fritch, is an overture to the surrealist Psych-folk of his upcoming LP Leave Me Like You Found Me. This 10 song EP, full of more music and ideas than most long playing records, is comprised of five new songs featuring his honeyed, expressive vocals over bold, panoramic orchestration and five equally sumptuous and engaging instrumental tracks all showcasing a unique sense of orchestration and texture. The breadth and scope of this album’s instrumentation and arrangement belie the seemingly incomprehensible fact that every sound was played live, recorded, and mixed by Fritch in his home studio.

    After more than a decade of slowly refining and honing his DIY, no budget, maximalist aesthetic, Emptied Animal with it’s new, evocative sound palette is a statement piece for a solo artist who has continually strived to make music larger than his modest means. Those who purchase the physical album will receive four exclusive bonus tracks derived from the Leave Me Like You Found Me sessions. Artwork by world renowned artist/illustrator Joao Ruas
