Revenue-free Friday!

This Friday is a great day to pick up some music, as Bandcamp is waiving their revenue fees once again. 100% of all purchases go directly to the artists. It’s an awesome time to snag a copy of my new Cesspool Dreams single, if you haven’t already–and if you visit my personal website at jeffmcleod.net, you can find lots of other music of mine of varying styles on other labels who would also be stoked if you could snag a download or two.

Also, you can now purchase my entire discography at my personal Bandcamp site now for the discounted price of $51.20. Friday is a great day to do this, thanks to Bandcamp!

Thanks for your time and ears!

Discography discount!

I hope all of you are safe and well. 

I just wanted to post a quick update letting you know that you can now purchase my entire discography at my personal Bandcamp site now for the discounted price of $51.20. This includes all the Isolation Jams as well as recently added archival material that’s available there for the first time in a long time.

Next Friday is a great day to pick stuff up, as Bandcamp is waiving their revenue fees once again, so 100% of all purchases go directly to the artists. If you visit my personal website at jeffmcleod.net, you can also find lots of other music of mine of varying styles on other labels who would also be stoked if you could snag a download or two.

I know times are crazy and hard for all of us these days, but I sure would appreciate your support, if you are looking for some new music or just wanting to flesh out your Bandcamp library with some weird musicks!

Somatic co-release…

Somatic has just co-released the single “memory piece” by Cesspool Dreams, my new project with Matt Finney, as a teaser for our upcoming Paper Angels album that they’ll be putting out on cassette & digital formats later this year. They’ll have a teaser track up for that as well soon on their site, but for now, you can get your ears around this standalone piece as a re-introduction to Cesspool Dreams. It’s a cold, stark song–featuring Matt’s unique voice and lovely text. It’s a bit stripped-down and undressed compared to the density of our upcoming Somatic full-length, but it sets the mood, and heralds in the new year after the shitty last one…

Cesspool Dreams…

Cesspool Dreams is a new group featuring Matt Finney and myself. Dark dreams of the future and the past . . . and of the cesspool that we all call home. “memory piece” is an introduction of sorts . . . full-lengths to follow later this year on Somatic Austin and Glossolalia Records. Filth for filth. Enjoy . . .

Sokebda at the movies…

My friend Alex Brownstein-Carter has a new short film called Witches Brew that has music from my latest solo recording Sokebda weaved in quite perfectly. After you’re done viewing, do your ears a favor and check out his killer band Primpce!

Clawing’s Living Together & Black

Living Together & Black, the latest latest 2-CD set by my group Clawing, has just been released by the U.K. label Trepanation Recordings. Bleak drone & skeletal guitar figures meet power noise & the haunting spoken word of Matt Finney. Living Together is a deep study of a dissolving relationship (with incredible photography by Gretchen Heinel), while Black finds the group exploring self-isolation and Goya’s last days (cover photography by the awesome Stephen Wilson at Unknown Relic). Digital downloads and orders of the limited 2-CD set are available now!

The freak guitar of Bad Calm Zero

Originally released on CD in 2001. Bad Calm Zero’s Btiam is series of duets with the amazing guitarist Scott Bazar. Dual guitar interplay & whacked-out electronics rule the day on this one! Freaky musicks for a broken modern world. Pay-what-you-want downloads! More music coming soon from Bad Calm Zero. Stay tuned (out)…

MUST: A Crackpot Life Study In Five Movements

Originally a handmade CD in 2004, MUST is conceptual sound sculpture, noisescapes, improvisation & atonal composition. Other than one track, everything was recorded live on the Chapman Stick. A few of the original handmade CDs are still available at the site where it now lives on!

Tracks 1-4 were recorded live by Adam Vincent at Sarcophagus Studios Annex in the Ultimate College Nightmare city of Auburn, AL on 11/23/03.

Track 5 was recorded at The (old) Subversive Workshop blue room in the Ultimate Ignorant Experience city of Montgomery, AL on 2/19/04.

It was all mixed and mastered by Jeff at the same place that track 5 was recorded.
