  6. These days, guns are unnecessary in America, as well as most other places. They are not cool in any way and shouldn’t be regarded so. They are strictly a device made with intention to maim and kill, animal or human. The mere sight of them makes me unsafe and uncomfortable.

    This should be obvious, but people sure don’t act that way.


  7. Japanese Guy has released our second record, “Tat”. It was recorded by Trevor Spencer at the Unknown in Anacortes, WA and features performances by Luke Bergman on the tracks “Wan Walk” and “Marcata” as well as performances by Morgan Henderson on the tracks “Wax Mountain” and “Alligator”.

  8. Poor attempt, man. New York, New York, October, 2012. 


  9. I will be on tour quite a bit this summer with my friends Peter Matthew Bauer and Hamilton Leithauser to support their new records. I will also be supporting my own record, opening for some of Peter’s tour. I put up a list of upcoming shows on my website, with more to be announced soon.

  10. The Wilder Papers was a performance held at the Knockdown Center on June 4th, 2014. I was incredibly honored to be asked to be involved by my friend and co-director of the performance, Derrick Belcham. Not only the performance itself, but the work that went into it with these amazing people, will always be one of the most influential things I have ever done in my life. I am incredibly grateful to have been a part of something so magnificent.

  11. I have released a record tonight through Bandcamp. It is called Noh and was recorded during the later part of last year with Trevor Spencer at the Unknown in Anacortes, WA. It was mastered by Christopher Colbert. I was also lucky enough to have my friend Abbey Blackwell play some bass on the track “Black River Sui-san” as well as my other friend and bandmate Andrew J.S., who played some synthesizer on the track “Sand”.
