Planetarium with Josh Dunn, Gunnar Haslam and Justin Carter: A Playlist

A couple Fridays back, Josh Dunn and I DJed the fourth edition of Planetarium, with Gunnar Haslam playing live. We recorded the night, but sadly, the file was corrupted, so we’re reverting to the playlist format again. We hope you find some tunes you love inside. Josh played some amazing stuff that I had to scoop up. Next Planetarium is at the end of January. We’ll be in touch via the Mister email list when the time comes to announce. Make sure you’re signed up if you wanna come. (JC)

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.
