Years End

Isabel & Burger, Haley, Ka in North Philly at the Bardo Pond compound, 11/17/17.

Circuit Des Yeux has returned from our first leg of touring in support of the new Drag City full-length, Reaching For Indigo, which was, simply stated, a superlative experience. It is always a great joy to find myself in these scenarios, creating music with immensely talented and wonderful people, enjoying each other’s company along the way. I would like to highlight Ka Baird as being an absolutely inspirational figure on this outing who routinely blew our minds with her singular, empowering solo work. If you haven’t given her 2017 LP Sapropelic Pycnic a spin, go check it out now! Lastly, thanks to everyone who made it out – we’ll see the rest of you in 2018 in the US, Europe and beyond…below are the CDY dates for the first quarter of 2018…more to come:

“Softened Skull” now available for download…

“Softened Skull,” my debut solo release, is now available to download via my Bandcamp page. If you still haven’t picked up a copy of the cassette version (and would like one), I have a handful left and will be selling them at shows. If you can’t make it to a show, drop me a line (contact) and I’ll see what I can do for ya. Magnetic South is officially sold-out, but Auris Apothecary may have some stragglers left over at the Pharmacy
