Above: images from the album art for Steve Von Til's "A Life Unto Itself".

CD and LP versions are out now via Neurot Recordings, and you can listen to the album here.
Thanks to Steve for inviting me to participate in the project.

Also out now - Barnett + Coloccia "Weld" LP (cover art below by Faith Coloccia). This is the second album by the duo of Alex Barnett (Oakeater), and Faith Coloccia (Mamiffer), also their second for the Blackest Ever Black label. I contributed a bit to the project in the form of recording and and some production in tandem with Faith. The album is streaming here.

Currently enjoying: Disasterpeace "It Follows" OST, Aktor "Paranoia", "Worst Behavior" Simon Hanselmann, Logical Nonsense "Expand the Hive", Maica Mia - live, Barnett + Coloccia "Weld", Pale Chalice "Negate the Infinite and Miraculous", etc.

Do you know what happened to Ben Carr & Charles Harrold of 5IVE? As I know you made art for their albums, so perhaps you could now where they are now. THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR WASTING TIME AND ANSWERING.

Hello Aaron,

A question: the lyrics of many past releases often (but not always) reflect, at least partially, what you had been reading during the time of writing. I was wondering if there are any specific books you might point to that proved inspirational for the lyrics on The Deal and Black Curtain specifically.

To answer some the questions above

- No, I have no idea what happened to the 5ive guys - seems they've been musically inactive for a while - that's all I know.

- As for any literary inspiration behind The Deal or Black Curtain, there was nothing as directly connected to these albums as with some of the ISIS records for instance. What I'm reading does usually trickle into my writing in one way or another, but I can't point to anything specific in regards to those two albums.
