Announcing the debut studio LP by guitarist Tashi Dorji and I, entitled Both Will Escape. It is now available for pre-order via Family Vineyard:
From the FV website:
“Both Will Escape is the debut full-length between electric guitarist Tashi Dorji and percussionist Tyler Damon. In the long tradition of string/drum duets — from Bailey & Bennink to Haino & Yoshida — these two cleave out their own unmapped continent of sound. Across four pieces they connect lashes of ecstatic intensity and outer reaches of texture and timbre. At times Dorji’s brutal electric torrents meld into Damon’s metal and tonal abstractions.”
The title-track from Both Will Escape was also recently featured on WFMU’s Avant Ghetto (hosted by Jeff Conklin); “Unstuck in time, The Avant Ghetto wanders through heavy folk, pastoral noise, spiritual rock, harsh jazz and other dimly lit corners of the universe.” We’re humbled! Check it out HERE for a stream of Jeff’s entire 3-hour show, including our cut which is currently the only way to catch a glimpse of the new LP. Thanks Jeff.
Live at Trans-Pecos video screen-cap…
Additionally, David Weinstein of WFMU’s Ridgewood Radio graciously recorded Tashi & I’s set at Trans-Pecos in Ridgewood, Queens this past June.

It will be available from the Give The Drummer stream on WFMU.org and on the Ridgewood Radio webpage following the show. Check it out!
That’s all for now…more to come…
