Good morning ~
YOUTH PASTORAL (my first album of songs in ~4 years) is out now.
You can order copies and stream the record here:
That’s a picture of the LP version on my kitchen table on a particularly beautiful morning a last week.
It’s also on streaming services, etc.
Trying to explain what this record is all about, I wrote the following many months ago:
Water, change, hunger both physical and spiritual, the fire of unslakable thirst, life as a seaside christian teenager, ocean baptism, falling out of love with god, losing faith, the dull promise of even keeled happiness as you remember it from your childhood cul de sac, nostalgia as substance, substance abuse, codependency, willing with utter determination your life and body to change, turning god into a lover, turning a lover into god, letting go of all that, the thud of a bass drum booming in the distance and echoing off the buildings, finding ecstasy again after many years devoid, walls crumbling, lift, going from one to one of.
It’s a major labor, and a labor of major love, by myself and many other people ~
Please enjoy (and if you do enjoy, please tell a friend).
Last thing - if you’re in NYC, come on out to the release show tonight at Union Pool.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH !
