    A new extended single to start off 2014: Tidally Locked is comprised of two related, lengthy journeys into a humid, alien-like rainforest of swirling beats, guitar, and found sound. Indeed, field recordings still play a very large role in my music even when it veers far from the ambient music of 2013's "The Retired Cosmonaut". Two new recordings are featured extensively: an odd radio loop I found on an obscure A.M. station ("You're listening to a test broadcast.."), and the ambiance from the middle of a large pond at night (recorded near Romeo, MI).

My latest excursion into the soundscapes possible between ambient and non-ambient sound sources. Following 2013s full length debut album "Hamtramck Lately", and the more ambient single "The Retired Cosmonaut".
