Check out this stellar release from my friends at Chill Mega Chill Records. It’s going to be the perfect soundtrack for driving on summer nights. Get the tape quick, they’re going to be gone fast!
I love the midwest <3
In early February i bunkered down in the hills of Washington Heights, CA with fellow multi instrumental artist Tim Phillips - Tenstairs. For four hours straight we improvised a slow spinning dervish of sound from cello, trumpet, analog synthesizers, voice, and non instruments. Here is a tiny fraction of the content created that hazy day. Towards the end of this track you can hear the scurrying of a family of raccoons that came to watch from the living room window - captured with prescient microphone placement by Tenstairs. It was a magical moment: something that could only have occurred as a product of pure love of sound and sound’s environment. Though this may not sound like anything on “m_o_d_e_s” I think that you will find this as delightfully calming and intriguing as the “pop” material on that album.

“With this album I want you to hear what it is to be in love or out of love, to be in your bedroom listening to the sounds of the streets outside, the cars passing by, the people walking home or off to a show, the nighttime air and the deep marine layer, i want you to feel sad and tired and wilted, i want you to feel like you want more, to feel the deep dark insides of your heart and the reaching out of your soul, I want you to listen to this and think of slumber, of surrender, of soothing yourself with daydream escapades or stuck-in-traffic mind wanderings, remembering your past loves and losts, and to feel yourself drifting forward, I want you to escape, to close your eyes and to see the space around you, to be in your place and to be somewhere else, to smell the sky, I want you to feel passion, I want you not to be discouraged, I want you to lust for music.”
