Stull’s Dust and Butter

Dust and Butter is the third installment in a series of composite pieces by my trio Stull.

Original percussion/field recording concept recorded by Tracy. Stephen and Jeff responded to Tracy’s piece separately, with no awareness of each other’s track beyond that. Jeff put the various parts together, massaged them into being all that they truly could be, and here are the completely bizarro results.

Recording finalized 7/8/19 at The Subversive Workshop.

Tracy Harris – percussion, keyboards, kazoo, vocals & field recordings
Stephen McClurg – synth/keys, bass & art
Jeff McLeod – synth & massage

Calques’ Old Man tapes out now!

From the To Live A Lie Records site: “Weirdo industrial noise, grind, black metal ala Sissy Spacek from Montgomery, Alabama. This will truly melt your face.” That’s the new Calques tape in a nutshell. It also features your truly on space sickness/cosmic nightmare guitar. I’ve got a handful of tapes in, so contact me directly, if you’d like to snag a copy from me! Otherwise, you can get them direct from To Live A Lie Records. You can also preview a new track on the To Live A Lie Bandcamp site, and check out the whole thing at Cvlt Nation, who describe it as “death-ridden black noise.”

Another assemblage of Stull…

Originally a raw percussion/field recording concept recorded by Tracy. Stephen and Jeff worked on responses to Tracy’s piece separately, each writing in the key of E (mostly for the gargling) with no awareness of each other’s track beyond that. Jeff put the various parts together, massaged them into a little further being, and here are the truly weird results. Free listening and downloads on the Stull Soundcloud page. Be sure and follow for new tracks and updates.

Recording finalized 5/14/19 at The Subversive Workshop.

An assemblage of Stull…

Tear Kettle is the latest Stull track up for streaming and free download on Soundcloud. It’s a sound collage piece of sorts, made of three parts: Tracy’s percussion track and two responses from Stephen and myself created with no awareness of each other beyond the agreed-upon key. The result, we think, is pretty killer. More details on the site! Enjoy, but take a few tissues . . .

While there on Soundcloud, be sure to follow to get the quickest updates about new Stull tracks as they arrive!

Recording finalized 3/26/19 at The Subversive Workshop.

Collaboration with vylter

scum piano sand guitar is, at its heart, a piano and guitar piece–but this whirlwind collaboration with multidimensional artist vylter will amazingly tear itself apart and reconstruct itself right before your very ears! Out now for streaming and download via vylter’s Bandcamp page.

This music fell into place very quickly and with the most excellent results.

gowith Heralds in the new year…

I’m very happy to share a new gowith recording with you in this new year! Heralds is the result of a lengthy day of recording that we whittled down to just the stuff that floated out boats in the best ways. Marshall and I are really pleased with the way this one turned out, and offer it to you for streaming and download on our Bandcamp site. We hope you dig this dark, freaky, dismal little journey into 2019.

Stull crawls into the light…

Stull is a long-running improvisational group with me on guitar and Tracy Harris on drums. Our friend Stephen McClurg joins us now on bass, and we’re putting some recordings of a recent get-together at The Subversive Workshop up on Soundcloud. Here are a couple for you to get into a deep space freakout with…
