collapsible shoulder
Tuesday, January 10 2017 @ 04:43 PM CST

Lots of people here probably already have this album, but in case you don't, I'd like to recommend that you pick up a copy. It's been in heavy rotation on my ipod, and probably will be for a long time to come. There's a bit of everything: avant musique concrete, groovy 60's, REM-ish twanging, and moments where the music is so spare it's barely there. Highly listenable, highly inclusive, informed but non-elitist, and at the insanely low price of 5 bucks, a total steal. Buy it!!

BTW, I was not paid (or even asked) to promote this record. I just think it's very high quality stuff and should not be missed. Carry on.

Wow - where do I send the check? Really, it's so heartening to have you dig our work and take the time to share your thoughts on it. I'll share this with the band - they'll be very pleased. I'm one lucky guy to find myself in their company.

What's there to say, but you made my day. If you google the band members it can lead to some cool stuff. It's been great working with Chris Cochrane -guitar and vocals, Kato Hideki - bass and mix & master guru. The there's Brian Chase - drums. and yours truly, Kevin Bud Jones - synth & sampler & more.

I have to thank macjams and the great community that kept me musically afloat for so many years. There is still a lot of great music been made, and wonderful people contributing here. Skunkworx is some heavy stuff!
