Mailing list party

It's friday, and you know what that means - I'm trying to expand my mailing list so I can be less reliant on sites like fb that force me to pay to reach my own audience. TGIF! if you want to get on there you can enter your info at the “mailing list” link in the navigation bar or email me at wildermaker at gmail dot com

I'd be grateful!

Read Zachary Lipez on Zion at Noisey

Belatedly very proud to have Zion out in the world. huge thanks to the Northern Spy team, the band, Eli Crews and Sam Owens at Figure 8, Heba Khadry at Timeless Mastering, and to everyone who’s taken the time to really dive deep into the album.



Zach Lipez wrote one of my favorite pieces anyone’s ever written about the band over at Noisey

Other deeply attentive reviews came from Kris Handel at Post-Trash and Carrie Grayson at Soundblab, Peter Margasak at the Chicago Reader

It’s been a long haul getting this music to you on the best platform possible. I hope it comes to mean as much to some of you as it has to me.

Hello beautiful people, we are coming your way. As part of a string of fun things happening over the next month we will be back out there in our trusty van Whitey Ford playing the music for you, playing a couple of festivals as well as some good ol rock shows. Dates are below. 

I was just in LA with Debo Band (my other band) and I stayed for a few extra days at the end of the trip in order to avoid the pit of human misery that is NYC in February. I drove the Pacific Coast highway in 70 degree weather blasting Julia Holter's Have You in My Wilderness with the windows down and the sun pouring in and the person I love in the passengers seat and the blue water glowing in an unreal kind of way. It was an incredibly beautiful experience, and it reminded me what music can do. I'd always liked that record but had never really heard it in the way I did then. It sounded exactly like what I was seeing, the LA Light and the coastal landscape.

It was just the kind of euphoric moment I started chasing when I started making music in the first place. Hope to bring some of those to me and you both in March.

in the meantime, have you bought our New Streets 7" yet? Why not do it now? Either that or get on Spotify and stream that shit 1500 times (equivalent to one album sale according to the RIAA)
