New 7"s Coming Soon!!!!

Just got back from Shanghai, free from internet hell at last. Tomorrow I will be embarking on a US tour opening for Dum Dum Girls, and I can't wait to hit the road with them. I'll be playing first through out the tour, so please come early to the shows if you can (especially to those of you who are coming after work, my sincerest gratitude goes out to you)

But first things first, got some new 7's that will be released soon over the Atlantic Ocean in UK, via Conan's wicked Italian Beach Babes label, and Soft Power Recordings (which will be releasing a split 7" between me and my good pal Conor Prendergast from Fixture Records) My teenage dad graces the cover art once again, continuing the theme as my phantom alter ego double.

You can pre order them 7"s here:

Digital Mixtape - Friends Are Your Family VOL. 3

On opening and closing tracks we got cream of the crop of Beijing, The offset: Spectacles, and Soviet pop (Experimental minimalist Duo Li Qing and Li Weisi), both fellow rose mansion analog homies. Outdoorsmen are a garage rock n roll band from Hawaii (I covered their song Drunk Driving on the US girls split 7"), they are now based in San Francisco, check out their shows if you live in SF. Onakabazien appears again as my favorite one man hip hop beat conduktor of toronto. Lantern requires no introduction on this blog (the new project of my good friend Zach Fairbrother) and last but not least Heavy times, hard hitting bros that I met on tour in Chicago, and they are incredibly amazing LIVE. I punched a hole in the ceiling during their set jumping around in a basement with strangers last time we played together.

I will be leaving Singapore tomorrow morning, back to Communist internet hell. So this will be my last blog post for a while until I return to North America.

Enjoy the mixtape, and Happy New Year!
