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.
Dreams Really Can Come True, the latest recording by my ambient/drone guitar duo gowith, is out now for streaming and download on Bandcamp! These two tracks were recorded, mixed and mastered completely on analog tape. We recorded at Zero Return with Jim Marrer, who also did the photo image for the release.
To celebrate the new release, all previous gowith recordings are available for free or a pay-what-you-want download!
Still going through the previous gowith recordings, as we await the final master of the latest recording session. The new gowith, which was recorded to tape at Zero Return by Jim Marrer and mixed and mastered completely to tape in the analog domain, should be in our hands any day now. Until then, here’s our last one, captured live at Sunbrimmer Records in Avondale Estate, GA.
Four bitter pills to ingest…
Isn’t it obvious by now? gowith were prophets in 2012.
As the new gowith is being mastered . . . revisiting the old stuff. Acoustics, pinball swap meet field recordings . . . a cool document of a really fun weekend of music and friendship.
Seems like not has been happening musically this year, but I’ve finally done an update to my website and the newest gowith recording (Universal Field Recording 1) that’s been out for a while is up there.
I’ve been working in the shadows on many other things.
We’ve got a new batch of Witchchord songs ready to go for a second release. Just have to get things together to record all the new stuff. Very guitar-heavy this time, which is awesome because Shane is such an incredible guitarist.
Finished work on a new project called Clawing that is a creepy ambient doom drone concept called Spectral Estates. Currently mixing it right now. Austin Gaines from Calques and Japanese Women and Matt Finney from How We Lived and It Only Gets Worse are involved, and their work is incredible. Should have some sounds up soon, and hopefully a cassette release.

More stuff is coming!
The latest recording by my ambient drone guitar duo gowith is now available. It’s an EP called Four Glooms Pharmaceuticals, and it’s the third recording that I’ve done with my friend from Atlanta, GA Marshall Marrotte. It’s the second time we’ve used electric guitars, rather than strictly going acoustic.
The basic tracks were recorded live utilizing only two small guitar amps, and two reverb/delay pedals (Earthquaker Devices‘ Dispatch Master and Afterneath). We wanted to keep the setups clean and simple. The four tracks on the EP are full of reflective, ambient texture . . . and are perfect for a rainy day spent lying in the infirmary, staring out the window and frantically pressing your pain med button.
Feel free to give it a listen and download the EP. Each download comes with 5 alternate album art files.
And check out the video for the first track “Mediocratine.”
