'All Your Days' (2020–2022)

At last, the making of the 2022 album ‘All Your Days’ — featuring Matthew Girard (bass, engineer, mixing, mastering) and Richard Adkins (drums and rhythm sequencing). Good chat, including some notes about Joy Division, Stevie Nicks, Karaugh Brown, Frank Ocean, and more. We go all the way down, surfacing the steps, ideas, challenges, and triumphs that came with putting the trio together remotely and making a giant, weird album in the middle of a giant, awful mess. 

If you dig this, find my music at Bandcamp.
