“Softened Skull” review on Free Jazz Blog

Tireless out music supporter and aficionado Tom Burris has penned a very flattering review of my solo recording debut, “Softened Skull,” over at Free Jazz Blog:

“This disc seems to be a condensed demo to show the range of Damon’s talents, rather than a full-blown “statement” & that’s just fine with me.  The pieces are short, yeah – but I wouldn’t say they’re under-developed.  There’s a shit-or-get-off-the-pot aesthetic that displays a mass of  ideas quickly.  And now that this recording exists, I expect we’ll be going on many more trips with Mr. Damon that will build upon this sturdy framework.  A highly respectable debut from a phenomenal talent.”

“Softened Skull” is out-of-print on cassette but is still available on CDr via YOKE and digitally on my Bandcamp page…

Introducing YOKE: “Softened Skull” back in print!

Happy new year! I’m pleased to announce the launch of my own private imprint, YOKE. Yoke will primarily serve as a vehicle for my own solo and collaborative releases and will also occasionally feature other artists of a simpático nature. The first Yoke release will be a CDr reissue of my debut, “Softened Skull,” originally released on cassette Summer 2014 by Auris Apothecary & Magnetic South. They’re available for purchase now at the new Yoke page: http://tylerdamon.com/yoke. Here’s a magnificently shot promo video by DAS to get you in the mood:
