Endless, Boneless…

New miniature album with some stuff I’ve been working on for the movie Arcade: The Last Night At Chinatown Fair/

Square Records is having their 7th Anniversary show this Saturday at Musica in downtown Akron, Ohio. Dave and Juniper at Square Records have been a positive and important influence on music and art in Akron and it’s quite nice to be playing this show alongside White Pines, Cloud Nothings, and Dreaded. Here are two new songs recorded with the band I recruited for the show: Pat McNulty of Low In The Sky on drums, Keith Freund of Trouble Books on guitar, and Dave Rich of Houseguest on bass:

The cool little poster up there was made by ohioboy. Hope you dig it and can make it to the show, OK?!!

Night Parachute, OK?!!!

March 31, 2010

Night Parachute is Ryan Brannon from Party Of Helicopters and Beaten Awake doing dreamy basement rock songs. I think it sounds like Gary Numan, My Bloody Valentine, and Sebadoh. Combined. Into one band. Do you you understand?!!! I play drums and Steve Clements (QIX, Houseguest, Beast, Drummer) plays SYNTHS. This new Compacted Disk has 5 songs and one of them is a Tobin Sprout cover. I think it’s nice and you can purchase it here, or at the Compacted Disk Release Show at the Matinee in Akron Ohio on Saturday, April 3.
love, gabe
p.s.: here is a “track”, or “cut” from the E.P.:
