Yohuna/Truman Peyote Show (6/9/12)

This was one of those shows were the vibe in the air was awesome, but you didn’t realize how awesome until the next morning. Playing music can seriously refresh any type of serious or just hard situation and I feel really lucky to be able to do that, even in front of a very small amount of people. Everyone’s set was awesome, and I felt very positive about mine. We ate really great mexican food, and listened to funk between sets. And even though the Celtics lost last night, it still felt like there was hope in the air (Red Sox time.) 

I wish mad luck and joy to Johanne and Caleb on the road and hope that the tour continues to rule!

PS: Zak Zimmerman did visuals last night and they were amazing. Here are some pictures from last night. (I hope you can see them.)

Update: 4/16/2011

Played a show last night with New Addresses and Little Big Bangs. My pedals failed me miserably, but it was cool to finally play at Foam.

I am currently working on an album with Anthony Engelhardt as producer. Tracks so far are ranging from No Age-y ambient samples, Tape based Beach Pop, Shoegaze-y Chorused Guitar songs, Acoustic rambles and synth based experimental loops. Sounds like a lot to take in, but imagine how i feel about it.

Anyway, i am going to guess the album with be 10+ tracks and coming out by the end of summer. I am tentatively going to tour this summer as well as next fall, as i take (tentatively as well) another semester off.

Not sure what format or what record label it will come out on (if any label), but i am open to any suggestions.

<3,

Jake

Spring Cleaning Post #4:

"Street Recorder"

I recorded a toy recorder player that had Sesame Street characters on it. I had 4 discs and recorded them separately and just put them at equal volume and let them play over each other to make a new melody. I made this about 2 years ago. I added some keyboards last week.
