APOSTASY is an album about the occult, personal magickal practice, Eastern European folklore, sexual liberation, rejection of christian morality, and… werewolves. produced by Yung Gutted, the album veers between hard slapping bangers and off-kilter atmospherics, with lyrics that dig deep into the garbage psyche to pull out important flashes of truth among intentional and unintentional misdirects. Edition of 166 vinyl LPs — First 66 copies with a special letterpress print by O Underworld! Press. Special Prints: SOLD OUT. “Regular” Edition and Digital still available.

to celebrate the tenth year of garbageface, EIGHTEEN TRUMPETS brings together producers from far and wide to remix and reinterpret a range of material from thee prophet of doom rap. the result is a sideways trip through alternate dimensional timelines, where garbageface fronts a hardcore band, doubles down on industrial sounds, and goes indie rock, among other possibilities. all proceeds from this release will go to Peterborough Food Not Bombs, who help to feed people in the Peterborough area, and who contribute resources and time to a variety of social justice movements within our community.

DEFENESTRATION is a beat and drone tape that revolves around the ridiculous “broken windows theory,” a bit of social science horseshit that became an excuse for policing expansions and crackdowns in NYC (and far beyond) in the 80s and 90s. it’s also a tape that’s helped me metabolize the theft of most of my live music gear at the end of 2019. Edition of 50 Cassettes, Digital.
PLAGUE MECHANIC, a deep collaboration with Peterborough’s Dastard Hand, is a time capsule from the past, discovered in the present; an alternative timeline for a string of events that would have been better left unexplored. Edition of 66 504-piece puzzles, Digital.

written and produced and recorded in a month, then refined over a couple more, PELAGIC is an album/mixtape/whatever has some of my most straightforward – and weird – stuff on it. bangers and mash. loosely, it’s an album about treading water, being adrift, and finding footing in ether.
