|Worst week ever.|
Wow. What a week. My younger brother went to the ER and is getting emergency surgery tomorrow. He lives under me because I built a studio apartment for him to move into because he needed treatment options in my state and needed a place to live. His howls of pain were pretty unnerving, I don't think they'll ever leave my head. My in-laws are having sever marital problems and somehow my wife and I are stuck in the middle of it. I had some insane deadlines on projects at work that I just barely got done but I hauled 12 hour days all week on top of trying to mediate between my brother and my parents because he was depressed and only talking to me, so I had to coax him into talking with doctors and my parents about treatment options while I was trying to wire a house from start to finish in a day. Glad it's the weekend. I'm working on new material, it's a good outlet for me. For now, have some of my old music. + digs
|1||Stampede to Timberline|
a Sad Song in a Major Key
My most recent release. I finished this over the summer while I was unemployed. It's a slow burner and I recorded it all on an old cassette multi-track. I used lots of tape loops.
Check it if you want:

You Were my Coldest Season
Still one of my personal favorite releases of mine. I listen to it when I'm sad so it's been spinning a lot in my head this week.
|3||Stampede to Timberline|
My first album. Not sure how I feel about it these days lol. I recorded it on an MP3 player and mixed it in Audacity though, so I guess I didn't have much to work with anyway.
|4||Mark Kozelek & Jimmy Lavalle|
Perils from the Sea
I'm really enjoying this right now. it hits the spot.
The Invisible Mountain
Hatecloud is one of my all-time favorites for times like this. Brooding, exhaustive, and painful, it feeds well.
Infinite enjoyment out of this gem.
Hair receding is a rad little track. Super ambitious.

Marked For Death
This has consistently been one of my favorite albums for quite the long time now. It is exactly what I always want to hear. Hand of God is so so so good.
Ultimate classic material. If you haven't listened to this yet, do yourself a favor and listen to it.
If I recall correctly this guy was in Altar of Plagues, which would be a good reason for explaining why I love this so much.
Thin Black Duke
What an album. I'm so glad they returned in this form.
Like Author, Like Daughter
I'm really really enjoying this one. Makes me proud to be from Denver.
|So glad it's the weekend, I can't wait to sleep in lol. |
|8 is a favourite of mine too, so inspiring.|
Hope things get better soon brah. Hang in there.
|8 is fantastic. Whenever it pops up in my library I never skip it. I was really looking forward to driving through some snow storms with it playing, but it's been a really dry year for Colorado so that hasn't happened yet lol.|
|nothing I can say to help, hang in and hope all works out well|
|i feel this. hope you're doin' better now. taking care of your brother like that, you're a good guy, dude.|
|Thanks guys. I'm grateful for my family. Things may suck health-wise, but my brother will always be my best friend. I really hope he can finally start living a normal life.|
|: ( |
love, from me to u
|what jack said.. tomorrow's another day, hang in there, dude..|
|"Makes me proud to be from Denver."|
rep it brah
|I'm so sorry man, if it helps I recently listened to 2 and it was bloody fantastic and i wondered how it had slipped under my radar. Definitely brightened up last week discovering that!|
|feel for you brother. if it all possible don't let the inlaws or even your own rents drag you down too much, they are adults|
|damn dude, hope he pulls through ok. keep your chin up you got sputlove|
|My sputheart goes out to you man, you have not had an easy time of it these past few years. It's difficult stuff, especially about your brother(s?) Glad surgery is happening, that would hopefully mean recovery.|
I've been thinking lately that it's really best to stay out of family drama arguments/disagreements that don't directly involve me. I know that's easier said than done, and no one asked for advice, but from the perspective of dealing with arguments and stuff among family lately that's what I've found is best for the sake of mental health and well-being. Help when you can, but other than that do you.
|one day at a time man. glad to hear music is a good outlet for you. i spin old songs i wrote/cowrote from my past bands for the same reasons.|
|here you bro, it sucks to be an adult, thats why it is funny to here the kids on here complaining about stupid shit, when real life is happening to you. good luck to you and your brother|
|I've read some of your other lists. You've had worse weeks.|
|Lol I have had worse weeks Caiman, you definitely aren't wrong there. This one has been pretty emotional though. Thanks for the support guys, it's good to hear some encouraging stuff now and again.|
|hey man you're in colorado so things could be worse. imagine if you were living in nebraska and this shit was happening. |
also props for listing 5. absolutely incredible record.
