About to announce a new album, an inter-continental collaboration with a mystery guest… it’s nearly wrapped up, and i’m excited about it!

the behemoth pitchfork gave some love and kisses and disses to QUIET STORM but i’ll take it with a glad smile – ha! if they think this one is too distorted just wait…

got some shows coming up, april 21 + 23 , july 26… thinking and working about new ideas and songs..

so!  the almighty pitchfork took a whopping dump on my new album.  pretty marvelous…. it turtled me for a couple days, cause of that site’s undeniable role as gatekeeper/tastemaker.  i was hoping for them of course to love it and send me hurtling towards ginormous european festivals and etc.  ha!  that’ll teach you, puny rafter!

anyhow, i feel completely confident still about the quality of Animal Feelings, 100%, though i feel sad a bit that its direct and heartfelt nature and rebel spirit are not obvious to some notable peeps.  that said – – – – > there has been so much love and appreciation for the album i thought i’d share some of my favorite reviews with ya!  my whole heart and mind and being are in the art i make, and when people get that and dig it, it’s cool!  i’m doing this to share!  so thanks to everyone who’s written kind words about the album.
