Planetarium Playlist

On November 4th, 2016, we did our third edition of Planetarium, the immersive listening experience we started back in June. We forgot to record the evening, so we decided we’d put together this playlist. Not everything was available on youtube, so we made a full tracklisting and included explanations for the things that we couldn’t add. Enjoy! [And sorry about the tracks with ads up front.]

The next Planetarium is on Friday, December 2nd. We just posted tickets. Grab ’em fast. They tend to sell out quickly.

Know It All

Most people don’t know this, but before I ever put a record on a turntable, I was a singer and songwriter. Over the past fifteen or so years, as I’ve gone down the DJing path, my singing and writing have ticked along quietly in the background, a secret to pretty much everyone.

This Friday, though, I’m releasing a song. It’s called “Know It All”. I recorded it with Cosmo D, the cellist from Archie Pelago, and Jason Lindner, the keyboardist on Blackstar, Bowie’s final album. It was mixed by Benjamin Tierney, who also worked his magic on Kamasi Washington’s The Epic.

Stereogum’s posted a nice review of the single.

I really hope you like it.

Barn Dance Deux: Anthony Naples and CZ Wang

msn_2016_nov19_a
We’re taking over the Silent Barn for four nights across November and December. If you haven’t been to Silent Barn, get excited. It’s the best. There’s a courtyard, a little indoor treehouse thing, a couple homemade video games and cheap drinks. Our sound system also sounds awesome there, and it’s all ages, like we like.

This is our second edition. Mister family member Anthony Naples will be teaming up with CZ Wang, one the coolest dudes we know and one of the musical minds behind Mood Hut. The pair will play together all evening, from beginning to end. Good news…

Get tickets here.
