“Gardens” in the media & release show (this Friday)!


I’m very pleased that Gardens, my forthcoming disc on Scissor Tail Editions, has been fetching some kind words from some notable sources over the last little bit.

1.) Tiny Mix Tapes’ Chocolate Grinder has an exclusive preview up of the album, along with a lovely little review.  They say: “Gardens is delicate yet crisp, trippy yet grounded, hypnotizing yet never repetitive, and (perhaps most importantly) never so beholden to concept that it loses its fundamental girth as a composition.”

2.) I’m grateful that Boston Hassle also felt compelled to offer their two cents about the project.

3.) I also spoke to Joe Strutt (of Mechanical Forest Sound fame) for the Wavelength BlogIt’s quite an extensive interview about the creative process behind the album, among other things.

4.) German website Das Klienicum also had some other nice things to say (if I can trust GoogleTranslate!).  If you’re a Germanophone here is the link!

5.) Guelph Radio station CFRU 93.3FM‘s show Sound It Out (hosted by rachel elliott) also spoke to me for a program airing this Thursday at 3PM.  You can find a podcast version later at her site.
