hey dergs i just got one of those sound cloud pages to post some of my unreleased and weird tracks. started it off with my unreleased "another dead end" EP which contains the first incantation of the song "another dead end" off of my new record, "Get Lost", at that time known as "the body in question", as well as five other unreleased tracks mainly using guitar with no delay effects or loops, save the guitar-synth drifter "absolutely". calm mornings receiving terrible news, saying goodbye to dear friends, and other summer colors dedicated to the late great G Unit: Grady and Geordie.
hope you enjoy!
stream "Another Dead End"

heyy! Editions Mego has just announced that my new album "GET LOST" is slated for release in September. I am really psyched for this one to drop, been working on it for over a year now! you can pre-order it now at editionsmego.com, or wait for actual release in september. for American heads, it will be available through forced exposure at a good domestic rate.
and in the meantime, wrap your ears around the new road chief end of summer mixtape BODY WASH 2K11, with all the hottest jams for all your sun-baked, half fried afternoons and early evening post-herbal essences shower scrunchie cool down sessions..
part one : sleeping alone :
part two : blisssssssssss :
stay tuned for much, much more!
