Oh my god, this wall.
Click the link to hear some music I’ve been working on this year. We’ll be touring with BMSR & The Faint this fall.
The great blog, Bandcamp Hunter was kind enough to feature our latest release, Vacations EP by mumbledust, on their site. They also had some nice things to say about mumbledust and Furious Hooves via their facebook page.
I like a record label that you can’t pin down - Furious Hooves hasn’t been around for long but have released a steady stream of diverse sounds, all of it good. The lo-fi folk of mumbledust is a lovely warped listen - “recorded on a poor microphone with the best of intentions”. Good intentions and good songs, a fine combination.

Today marks the day for our first “EP” if you will. It’s actually a collection of bedroom recordings we did in the summer of 2011 between various old haunted Savannah homes. It was recorded on a poor microphone with the best of intentions. The download includes bonus material! Yay.

Furious Hooves has a little shindig tonight! It’s a release show for new furhoof family member Blackrune! What? Yeah. Read below and come out tonight Savannah, Georgia.
GA/VA DIY label Furious Hooves presents a full moon family jam to celebrate the release of Blackrune’s new limited cassette, featuring performances from Blackrune and local sonic astronauts Recons and Hallucinex! We’d love for you to take the opportunity to paint the blue moon blood red with us for the evening of the second full moon in August, upstairs at the enchanted cocktail wonderland that is The Sparetime!

So this little thing is happening tonight!
A gentle blend of classical and experimental folk influences from Berlin/Brooklyn.

My latest design and layout for Wild Nothing’s Nocturne, released on Captured Tracks Tuesday 29 August 2012, just got ”Best New Music.” It’s been a dream to have worked on a few Wild Nothing releases now and I’m so honoured to have worked with Jack on Nocturne. It’s a fantastic album that you should get your paws on asap. Do so here: capturedtracks.com or at your local record store!
Nocturne distinguishes itself from the perrennial crowd of dream-pop nostalgists for the same reason Wild Nothing’s 2010 debut Gemini did: Tatum is simply one of the best songwriters in this field, and Nocturne's significant upgrade in fidelitymakes that point more clearly than ever.
