hi guise

finished it , it’s beautiful, you can hear it, order it, love it, hate it!  i think it’s great music for doing housecleaning or walks.


It’s Reggae!

oh fellows, sorry i’ve been so not website-ing, there’s so much stuff goes on besides making POSTS.

new record is done and coming out in days – april 1 though it is NO JOKE, FULLY SINCERE

i am still fully engaged w/my music – next up will be one of several wild things – not sure, lots of home made synthesizers and 4 note chords going on, lots of enthusiasm for challenging situations and structures – i’m still so excited about all my albums and feel like i could revisit any aesthetic happily, exploring is a blast!

hi internet buddies, i feel like i have very much ignored my responsibility to be telepathically observable, searchable, cached, u name it.  sorry! 🙂 doesn’t mean i haven’t been working hard to make good things to share with you.  in fact i’ve got a lot of goodies baking, percolating!  last thing i put out officially was the free Roberts and Lord EP of covers, and that’s still a great listen… i have a song on flexidisc coming out like TODAY on Joyful Noise’s subscription series of flexis, alongside such supermaestros as Deerhoof and Of Montreal!  i’m nearly done with an album of instrumental reggae music – i know that sounds funny but i think you’ll like it, i totally do!  i have about 6 hours of song fragments i’m sifting through for 1 album concept, 14 songs of totally fun but illegally sample music that is just waiting for some singing, 30 minutes of powerfully blown out noise rock waiting for some flute and singing and synthesizers….. anyways there’s a lot of goodies getting good.  don’t take my silence as inactivity, i think that’s probably one thing i’m preeeetty incapable of.  sending you mysterious strangers kind regards, rafter

p.s. my totally awesome hype-woman / bff / art director / wife / superheroine has JUST released her debut album as Smile Now Cry Later, and you should get it!!!!Image

do you guys love youtube? it’s so cool!  i can’t believe it’s only been 5 or 6 years. it’s hard to imagine a world without it.  it’s a great time to be alive.

what kind of musics are you enjoying these days? what role does it play in your day to day life?  i mostly listen to music while i jog or in the car.  sometimes in the kitchen while i do dishes.  i like my pandora radio stations : reggae, black metal, new age ambient, prince.  it’s a delight.

last month we saw prince at the LA house of blues, morris day and the time at the indian casino, tuneyards in a tiny sd venue.  life is good!

what’s going on
