BEHOLD! Thanks to the whims of almighty Bandcamp ( ) I have decided that today is the day. I have been hand-wringing for nearly 3 months on how "best" to release this thing and, this being perhaps the last "Bandcamp Friday" ever and considering that I'm trying to donate all of the proceeds toward efforts to get Georgia's Democratic Senate candidates elected in our huge January 5th runoff, I decided that it was sort of now-or-why-not-now for releasing SPACESHIP YOU, my piece for 6 electric guitars that I spent 200 hours over 4 months working on in near-complete isolation this summer.
As much as absolutely anything, it is a love letter to The Shizz. It is a love letter to all of my friends, and so many of you are chief among them. This whole place is an inextricable part of my life and world. But by now in a normal year, I would have seen a dozen of you or more in person at a show or festival, and quite frankly I have banked on that significantly for my general social and emotional well-being over the past several years.
So this piece of music is my whale song about how it makes me feel to miss all of you, and to miss everyone and everything in my life that has been inaccessible for 9 months now and counting.
p.s. obviously I know that it is ATHLETIC AESTHETIC day, and I am as hype for that as anyone! But this being partly a politically motivated financial fundraiser in the interest of literally the political health of our nation, it seemed important to go ahead and get it out to other outlets while I can potentially maximize the potential to generate some real funds. I know it's not an ideal day to be pushing it out on The Shizz specifically but at the same time it's not going to just disappear into fat air after today! And if anyone wants to just donate to the New Georgia Project or Fair Fight directly to try to contribute to ensuring a Democratic Senate in January, by all means! This is about more than my 6-guitar non-wankery!
At any rate.
