My friends at CRL Studios are assembling their Fifth Wavelength compilation, and it will feature an exclusive new Testube track. I've also submitted a new post-punk styled song from the upcoming Testube album Backwater for consideration by Side-Line for their new Post-Punk comp. My friend Mike Slanksy (Unterm Rad, Rekt) is also assembling a new compilation for Point Source Electronic Arts, and I have a new Testube track in the works for that one, as well. On top of all of this, I just landed a new job at our local historical museum, so it's been a busy month!

Visit the Side-Line page on Bandcamp and pay-what-you-can for this excellent music sampler.
CRL Studios has just released a 3-disc Standing Rock benefit compilation titled Sacred Territories, featuring a brand new exclusive track from Testube titled "Big White Lies". All proceeds will be used for financial relief of medical care, food, shelter and additional expenses accrued.

My heart goes out to the protesters and "water protectors" and I hope this is the last time they have to deal with this type of threat. Download the compilation here.
When you've got coyotes and owls keeping you up at night, why not break out the audio recorder and make some ambient music? That was my idea when Shane Morris first approached me to contribute to a new Ambient Arkansas compilation he was assembling for Aural Films. Featuring over a dozen tracks from regional artists, the resulting collection is nothing short of immersive. So check it out below! My song "Arkanstayed" appears second in the tracklisting. keep reading »
