Tom Waits and John Cage are mudwrasslin' in the pond while Dr. John stirs up a pot of gumbo on the bank. Burt Bacharach experiments with a 12-string guitar he borrowed from Carlos Jobim. The Eels look on approvingly, but stay well back in the bushes. Meanwhile, out in the woods, Petula Clark and Cthuhlu plot to take over the world.
Atomic Weasel Ball
Here's something you may not have seen...this is an album that I actually finished in 2011. I was planning on getting it mastered and released, and then a series of family crises totally distracted my attention to the degree that I forgot all about these tracks. My friend and Mastering Engineer Chris Goosman was able to retrieve them, and brush off the dust and cobwebs, and I think they sound pretty darn good!! At this point I was just starting to enjoy creative mixing and loop manipulation to enhance the arrangements, and the recordings reflect that. I enjoy these songs, especially since they've reappeared after so long!! I hope you do, too.

You Know You Know
This album is the fourth that I've released in a year...how do I do it? Well, coffee is involved, I'll admit that. And I really like writing. And I also know that time is really effin' fleeting, and I'd like to have more of these songs out in the world, just because. "You Know You Know" is a more psychedelic and somewhat more mystical recording, with a good deal of sound collage and some experimental leanings, although I think you can listen to it comfortably and enjoy the melodic content as well. There's Bossa Nova, Strange Spaghetti Western Music, Electro-Celtic Groove, Sweet Pop and some stuff that I have no clue as to what genre it is. Maybe you can tell me! I did most of it myself this time, with the exception of one song where I was helped by my collaborator Carey Farrell. So if there's something wrong, it's my fault.
As with all my albums, "You Know You Know" is out on all streaming platforms.
