Tonight in the Explorers Room: Undersea Philosophies and Inscrutable Microscopics


Tonight in the Explorers Room, we'll cool off with special vibrations of synthesized sound – aquatic, microscopic, surreal and exotic – a throng of holographic birds and inscrutable taxonomic arrangements.  Join in and get molecular with me and all the other giant sunfish.

Tonight in the Explorers Room: Back on the Beach


Tonight, Explorers Room returns! We're back on the beach, my friends, and we'll be hearing a program of surf, exotica, passion & melodrama of the teen pop variety, waves and gulls, and reggae wizz-dom.  Tune in!

Tonight in the Explorers Room: Forbidden Jazz, Kapu Dreams


Tonight in the Explorers Room, we'll have another all-vinyl program of organ weirdness, all-time great exotica, and exploratory jazz.  Unless the power outage at the station persists, in which case, we won't have anything, I guess (edit: all was solved in very good time, by heroic men and women at WFMU headquarters).  Either way, I'll be off in the jungle honeymooning for the rest of May, and won't return to the Explorers Room until June 7th.

New Album Art!: Flash Car – Wardobe


It's album-droppin' season. Once again extremely pleased to report another album cover making its debut in the world, this time by Flash Car (for whom, you may remember, I've done a few things in the past, including this Eddie Callahan cover cassingle on Third Uncle, and this killer 45).  This time around it's no single but at long last a full-length LP of heavy synth, psychedelic rock, & baroque pop.  It's a monster of an LP and I'm extremely pleased with how the cover turned out, if I may.   

WARDROBEcheck it out, here.  On bandcamp and also on limited release vinyl, details on the latter forthcoming. 

And, once more, check out this gallery of album covers I've done, if such a thing might interest you.
