WFMU Fundraiser Compilation “The Finest Tree I Ever Did See”

A while ago Daniel Blumin of WFMU kindly approached me to appear on a fundraising compilation for that great station!    Naturally I said yes, and created an exclusive track.

The track is called “x soulangeana” and is my personal homage to saucer magnolia trees.  Growing up, my neighbours had one in their front yard and I have many fond memories of playing in and climbing up said tree.  I was never much of a tree-climber, so the fact that it was low to the ground allowed me to have that experience without getting frightened (yes, I was a delicate child).

At any rate, I’m super excited to be on the compilation!   The format is a 7″ plus a whole wack of downloads!   The lineup is super stacked.  The 7″ is a split between Richard Youngs and Heatsick.  Downloads include: myself, Tom Carter (of Charalambides), Stephen Vitiello, Tsambla, h., Janek Schaefer, AWOTT, Ilitch, Knuckleduster, Our Love Will Destroy the World, Mela Zeta.  A pledge of $75 or more will get you a very exclusive copy!  (just specify that you want Daniel Blumin’s DJ Premium)
