The first time I saw Thor Bogason play I was absolutely floored.
It was a little over a year ago in the basement of the now posthumous C.R.A.F.T. House on a cold day in March.
I wrote about the show in a previous post -
“Thor writes such amazing songs that I totally spaced on getting any footage or pictures… it was enveloping…”
For me Thor’s work under the name Just Another Snake Cult comes off as sincerely serious magic. The latest JASC release is called Birds Carried Your Song Through the Night and was written on the Ensoniq SQ-80 synth. The whole ep is soaked in reverb and has some sort of Carpenteresque-reminiscent quality to it. Thor has a beautiful understanding of harmony.

Anyways, I had the opportunity to do a remix of Birds Carry Your Song Through the Night and it’s finally done so here it is:
We put Killer and Z onto cassettes and we will have them for sale at our shows this weekend. They come with a digital download that includes 3 extra songs.
ROMPER is no more. Now It’s time for Psychic Rites. We have a short five song cassette that will be ready by Friday.

had a wonderful Holydazzze yesterday, and today the sun is out and it’s awesome. Big things are cooking in the lab right now, looking forward to releasing a bunch of new songs in the next month. Can’t wait for summer. Things grow well in summer.

Went down with Dork Dog, Lord Butt-lord and the Kitty Meow Meow crew to Boise for the inaugural year of Treefort Music Festival. Had a wonderful weekend and we had our ears filled to the brim with good sound. A few of the favs we saw are — Pictureplane, Sun Araw, Wolvserpent, Janka Nabay, Art Fad, and I would add of Montreal, but we played at the same time so I could only catch half their set by listening from a block down… still, it sounded pretty good. The festival was well organized for it being it’s maiden voyage, there was cool shit everywhere and new sounds around each corner of downtown Le Bois. Praise to the staff that slaved to set this thing up.
Here are some vids from the
ROMPER Psychic Rites set:
So, I made my first remix ever dude. It’s for a remix contest put on by Orange Stripes for a House song by Tosh Mackins. Making remixes is kind of fun, like a high school art project, and hopefully this will be the first of many this year.
