Just added: On June 15, we'll be supporting the wonderful Pattern Is Movement at Cafe Nine in New Haven as part of their farewell tour. This is particularly thrilling as their music is important to me. I'm not quite sure how I was first introduced to them, but I listened to their album "All Together" non-stop from 2008-2010 and it kept me company on many unpleasant bus commutes through the Bronx.
No Nutmeg has his the big(er) time. It has happily morphed into a monthly(ish) column on Lonesome Noise focusing on the experimental, daring, unclassifiable music coming out of the great state of Connecticut (and sometimes surrounding). This is exciting and also a relief. Keeping up with the site as a standalone blog was getting to be a bit much. Believe it or not, I'm a little busy.
I'm always shocked at how much quality music is happening in the dark corners of my home state. I'll do my best to write about it.
My My friend/collaborator/and potential official biographer is slowly interviewing me on her blog, one question at a time. Her first question is "What's the deal with your watch collection?" I enjoyed answering it. As a guy who feels completely misunderstood by almost everyone, almost always, explaining myself is a pleasure.
Still warming up for this show, prepping the full band, rock and roll record, waiting for the split single with Kevin MF King to be released. Otherwise, no news is good news.
Finally, my old pal Jason Bourgeois has released a solo record. Jason is a gentleman, an international man of mystery, a human conundrum, and most importantly a master of pop music. I am an enthusiastic participant of his cult following and have been keeping tabs on all of his projects (Bourgeois Heroes, The Novels, Beach Honey, The Frills, among others). I strongly urge you to bite and chew and swallow this album, which is an essential nugget of breezy song-centered pop.
