My new album, Keue Yeo is finished and available to purchase. It is a limited-run cassette release of 50, containing songs that I recorded in 2011. These songs mean a great deal to me, and so I took care in designing and making the packaging that houses them. Each case is one-of-a-kind and handmade from scraps of second-hand leather clothing, sewn at home, with hand-painted details on the packaging as well as the artwork enclosed.
To the right are some previews, including an excerpt of the first track, and a glimpse of the handmade packaging. Additional excerpts can be heard on soundcloud.
This album is an invocation to Murcielago, the Zapotec bat god that, among other things, is a bridge between heaven and hell. A deity to carry me up and out of the depths of a trying year. Much gratitude is due to all those who have supported me and encouraged me this past year, during these dark days and hours.
The track listing is as follows:
bound by grass
under the pipes of solomon (excerpt)
so many other places
Each cassette is $8, plus $2 for shipping to US & Canada, $4 for shipping internationally. To purchase the tape, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about availability. Purchases will then be made through Paypal.
This preview includes an excerpt of the first song on the album, bound by grass.
Here is a glimpse at two examples of the parcels.
