I’ll be playing a fundraiser at Tractor Tavern on June 13 for Noise for the Needy. We put together a very interesting bill, Karl Blau and Alicia Amiri open. Please come if you can, I don’t think I’ll be playing another NW show this year! Tix

Let Me Wear Your Overcoat
– As usual, the heavy lifting is going on at the olde Tumblr.
– I’ve written all 10 songs for the new Dead Oceans record.
– We go into Fantasy Studios next friday (!) to track.
– The new record is a collaboration with the Magik*Magik Orchestra
– It will be recorded by John Congleton (who I’ve wanted to work with for years)
– Jay and Ian Pellicci are assisting, I couldn’t do this record without them
– Minna Choi, fearless leader of Magik and the arranger of the entire album, is a complete and total genius
– I am really fucking excited about this record
PS, I started a Tumblr for Tiny Telephone as well. It’s full of gear pornography and shots of marvelous Marvin the studio cat being, well, marvelous.
