"New" album, recorded last winter, originally intended be released by the now defunct Sunny Side Under Records as a physical companion to last year’s Wireless Internet Radiation Poisoning.
Featuring the talents of Peter House, Christina Nori, Samuel Egan and Sean Godreau.
As always, physical copies available upon request.
Still dig this one… I went to make a better rip of the tapes and accidentally recorded over the “master”, OH WELL LIFE GOES ON
Whoops. It’s still and forever worth a listen though. It sounds the way I remember working on it; like a distant memory of having a great time in a heat-less apartment in the North Country.
just drank one of my birthday presents. whee.
Anonymous asked: Like real gay or just messing around gay?
lol go away
Can someone please explain what “messing around gay” is? Ps saw your show last night dude. Beautiful work. I’ll send you my photos from your set :)
I’m ‘real gay’ and can confirm that ‘just messing around’ gay is a thing (ex. all that homoerotic shit college boys do in our day and age) but it’s all good.
(keep in mind I have no clue of what context this question was asked lol)
can’t get enough of this recording
haven’t geeked out on a jordaan mason recording this much since the unmastered mixes from divorce lawyers… went up on myspace forever ago my god………….ahhhh
killing me softly and what is my life who have i become
It’s so great to hear more Jordaan Mason (well apparently this is at least a couple years old but it’s new to me)
And now I feel like it’s 2009 and I’m sitting in a cafe outside the train station in Salamanca listening to those demos, learning a new language from them. New possibilities, new ways to talk about bodies..it really helped me sort myself out.
Downed powerlines by the side of the highway.
I am riding home to you with a secret in my mouth and an aching in my body from a feeling I’d forgotten, and there’s something in my mind I can’t hold onto for much longer…
Saw a hawk circling up above me, wild rabbits in the fields, foraging for dewey greens.
And the sounds of the highway harmonize with all the insects, and the melody they make is a sick and bitter grey.
And he said…
“Your magic is cheap and ineffectual,
your magic is like pearls before swine.
Your magic, it is trite and useless.
Your magic, it’ll cower before mine.”
I also wanted to say that I can’t conceive of this song and the next one on the album as being two separate songs. Presumably you can’t do a two-part audio post in tumblr, so here is part 2 right at your fingertips: http://twoforflinchingrecords.bandcamp.com/track/longing
This is also one that I play instruments on. I did so on a 90 degree day in a 90 degree apartment. Summer is such an abstract concept right now.
