Hey, I’m finally playing a show with J again!

Four months later, #hearing #test shows left ear back to normal! Left is today, right is last test (which was still far better than we’d hoped at the time). Time to crank up the #Sovtek again!

J Robbins’s first acoustic EP is finally here!!! And it includes the brand new song “Abandoned Mansions”. Enjoy and please spread the word.

Listen/purchase: Abandoned Mansions acoustic EP by J. Robbins

i play on a thing

And my oh my does he play well!

I’m pretty certain that J Robbins is unique in being able to make brilliant records with, by and for other bands as well as his own things and this new ep showcases it only too well.

Gordon too is a fantastic musician that has done some brilliant things on both guitar and cello. Go check his work at http://gordonwithers.bandcamp.com/

Very well done, Gordon and J! I hope that one day we’ll all get to do something together musically in the Magpie Cage!

Thanks for the kind words! Do try to make it to Magpie Cage if you can.

Treatment complete! Left ear (blue) remarkably improved, will always be less than right ear (red), but so much better than I’d hoped given how bad it was a month ago. The spike at 2k hz is the “jangly guitar” frequency - so plz cut back on the trebly reverb, you indie rock hacks! that sound is so cliché anyway, with or without my brain magnifying it.

Susumu Yokota - Tobiume

From the album “Sakura”, which is an awesome ambient album that’s like Brian Eno and Steve Reich mixed with traditional Japanese music. Wonderful for contemplation or pleasant conversation.

This is gorgeous
