New Date Palms Track “Sky Trails” and Tour CD

Listen and download our new track “Sky Trails”, recorded at the Dusted Sessions but previously unreleased.  In addition to the main band members, the piece features Michael Cormier on pedal steel.

The tour CD has arrived!  It contains Sky Trails and other unreleased and demo songs, from the living room to studio outtakes.  Its a pretty sweet document of evolution of lots of material and ideas over the course of the album! If you’d like a copy, please hit me up and I’d be happy to send you one when I return from tour on the 25th of September.

Yuba Reprise from ‘The Dusted Sessions’

LX(RMX) / Lisbon Remixed


A project speared by Disquiet, I contributed two tracks in honor of Fernando Pessoa.  I used exclusively source material from a single field recording of Lisbon which was given to all of the artists.

Also participating is in the series is Steve Roden (aka In be tween noise), Pedro Tudela (aka Johnny Days), Robin Rimbaud (aka Scanner), Kate Carr (aka The Frigatebird), Shawn Kelly (aka Y?Arcka), Marielle V. Jakobsons (aka darwinsbitch), Paula Daunt (aka Agnosie), and João Ricardo (aka OCP), all working from a shared set of sounds collected and constructed by Elvis Veiguinha. Veiguinha’s field recordings originally served as the score for an installation of photos of modern urban Lisbon by Jorge Colombo.
