I hope you like bicycle racing and droning guitar feedback.
Gretchen & I recorded a few songs this week and will keep adding to this over the coming days. The band is called Kindling. Fuzzy indie pop. All these songs are free for download and will stay that way!
This is Black Hearted Brother. Surprise of the year: Neil Halstead of Slowdive returning to droned-out 90s vibes. This isn’t the floating bliss of Souvlaki, though; There’s a little more breathing room between the guitars, but also a little more distorted chaos in there.
Folks who are into people doing what they’re good at, returning with broadened horizons, take note.
Totally surreal to see my old friend Sean’s latest band, Parquet Courts, on Fallon last night. We spent much time together in vans and shitty basements, and I don’t think it’s possible to be more proud of someone’s musical achievements.
deadrootsstirring asked: I recently tried to read your recipe/article about the Pineapple-Coconut speed bars but the Embrocation website is currently out of service. Is there any chance you could post the recipe to your tumblr?
In case it isn’t for you, a less wordy version of the recipe goes:
1c dried pineapple, 1c whole raw cashews, 8oz dried pitted dates, 1/2c coconut flakes. Put ‘em all in a food processor and then shape into bars. Then, coat them with ground cashew/almond so it doesn’t stick to the tinfoil.
