A new release with Rempis, Dorji & Damon duo/trio hits, more CDY dates…

Dave Rempis and I have a new cassette out on Knoxville’s fresh Park 70 label entitled Full Yum. Dave & I recorded some impromptu cuts in the basement at Magnetic South with John Dawson back in November of 2016 and these two sides are the result. These tapes are offered in a very limited and presented beautifully in letterpressed heavy card stock wraps – Pick one up from Dave and I at a show or via the Park 70 Bandcamp page. Digital is also available via my Bandcamp page

Tashi Dorji & I have a brief stint of tour dates, a handful of which include our Danish comrade MR. Peter Margasak did a nice write-up in advance of our Chicago shows over at the Chicago Reader, noting that:

“…the music surges and recedes in thrilling fashion, yet beyond the explosions and decay lies stunning detail, such as the subtly shifting tom rolls of Damon or the altering tonal gradations in Dorji’s numbing chords and barbed single-note runs.”

– Friday, March 16th – trio w/ Tashi Dorji & MR @ St. John’s Episcopal Church (2600 Church St.), Cleveland, OH

– Saturday, March 17th – trio w/ Tashi Dorji & MR @ Ziggy’s (206 W. Michigan Ave.), Ypsilanti, MI
