It’s with the greatest pleasure that I announce my forthcoming album. Transistor Sister 2 will be released worldwide on August 2nd via You’ve Change Records. We’re releasing the record at Sappyfest in Sackville, New Brunswick! Sappyfest is the best weekend of the year and I’m over the moon excited to be playing there this summer. The Transistor Sister Band (Jason Baird, Ryan Peters and José Contreras) will be there backing me up and hanging out.
Today the kind folks at Bytefm (Berlin, DE) are premiering our first single Cool All The Time.
You can stream the track here
. Cool All The Time features a bunch of pals including a monologue by Chad Vangaalen, a sick wurlitzer riff by Steven Lambke and some synth wizardry by Cole Woods.
Like the first Transistor Sister, the cover of TS2 features a collage by my art and life hero Paul Henderson. Paul is basically the Toronto Raptors of collage.
Transistor Sister 2 was engineered, mixed and produced by my dear friend and collaborator José Contreras. José made this album. He has the best guitar amp and I played through it on almost every song on the record. José is basically the Toronto Raptors of rock and roll guitar tone.
I’m elated by how this record turned out and I can’t wait to share it. Lots of fun stuff ahead in the coming months!
Ryan Peters, Jay Baird and I are making Transistor Sister 2! We’re recording it in Toronto with José Contreras. At the end of the session we’re going to play a rock show of all the new tunes. I’m starting out the night by playing all of the first Transistor Sister (solo acoustic)
Here are three more singles from the Heat Death! The full length album is coming out on Feb 14th 2018!
My upcoming Freiburg show has changed venues to “Slow Club” on May 26th.
I’m in a new band!
We are The Heat Death. We’ve been working in secret for several years. This is our first single. It’s the hangover remedy for a year of constant disbelief. Happy New Year.
Heat Death Manifesto
there will be no more 2016;
there may be a diminishing of
thermodynamic free energy,
but big hearts and bright minds
will light the way home.
in shopping carts and hotel bars,
we will unfurl the night,
oppositely and equally,
and look you in the eye
with a slow-motion smile.
only because we are hanging on the phone,
desperately scrambling to keep it as crucial as possible.

Alan Cross has a preview of my new song Project 9 here.
Here’s the new video I made with Colin Medley.
Its best to view it in HD. Youtube can’t handle the psychedelia on lower settings.
