Mystra X-Mas

I have a song on the new Christmas compilation LP/cassette released by Mystery Train Records of Amherst, my first time on 12" vinyl! Not quite sure where you can get one online, but I'm sure some will pop up on the discogs page very soon.

Winter Releases

FAX 023: Weirding Module - “Sewer System” C34

Venture deep into the catacombs and let the slime drip down your spine...over a half hour of dank and glittering synth-work from Michael Troutman. Emeralds-heads take note, with countless cassettes under his belt from places like Night People and Scumbag Relations and, shockingly, no vinyl treatment thus far, this might be his most composed work to date. Edition of 100.


FAX 026: Shep and Me / Tracey Trance split C38

Psych-folk troubadour and Minnesota viking Matthew Himes opens up with some drifting ditties and outer world caterwauling (and even a Throbbing Gristle cover), and Tracey gathers a band on the B side, a quartet of Bloomington heavy-hitters covering the roamin’ gnome’s greatest hits. Edition of 100, labels are hand-painted with coffee!


FAX 027: A. Restrepo - “3 Songs” digital release

Three songs by singer-songwriter Andrew Restrepo, recorded live to microcassette by Sam Gas Can at 9th Street Park in Bloomington, IN. Backing vocals and color commentary by Justin Clifford Rhody.

Free Music Archive

I was recently invited to join the Free Music Archive, directed by WFMU, "the most renowned free-form radio station in America", so you can now find most out of print releases by Sam Gas Can for stream or download right here. More will be added as physical items continue to disappear...

Also involving the FMA, I made it onto Mark Iosifescu's "best of 2010" list!
