my effort to push the banjo in the modern world. using it as a tool rather than an end in itself. this record employs lo-fi, musique concrete, spoken word, looping, serial music, and cut and paste, deconstruction, noise, and everything i could come up with to make a contemporary statement. this record was financially in the black in three weeks. it was a reaction to the players in the banjo realm that think django, or fusion is a forward move for music. it's not.

Hey Jeff, this is most definitely a different direction from what one would have expected, coming from the bands that you have worked with prior to this!
I dig it though!
I can easily see why you would say Danny Barnes is your mentor, because Danny's a bad mother fucker on banjo and he's a bad ass song writer as well! The Bad Livers are one of my favorite bands!
I love tattooing while listening to them!
It produces a very different type of art than the Surfers, Bloodhound Gang, Slayer, Primus, etc...
My listening tastes are all over the place, but each one produces a different type of art!
I know one thing for sure I would love to eat 4 or 5 hits of some really good acid and listen to this!
The very subtle almost inaudible tonal disonance would bend your trip into something incredibly colorful and wondrous!
In the spirit of this...I applaud you!
I dig it!!! CraniusFallous
Where once her playing was essentially representational and descriptive, with 12-string cascades and plaintive vocals standing in for wind and snow, “Nighttime Birds” attempts to give voice to the fingerstyle guitarist’s entire universe at once. Bandcamp Album of the Day Jan 23, 2019
