Desertion on Bandcamp

Tuesday, May 17, 2016


Desertion will be released May 20 (this Friday), but you can stream the whole thing over at Noisey now for free:


Featuring an interview and really great words by Brad Cohan, including:

"For his newest solo project, Millevoi dialed down his usual firestorm of proggy notes and upped the epic Neil Young-influenced guitar solo ante on the apocalyptic desert blues of Desertion. Throughout its six tracks, Millevoi channels the countrified acid-rock twang of the Meat Puppets while under the sonic influence of the atmospheric guitar heroics Young explored on Jim Jarmusch’s Dead Man soundtrack."

Once you're done, get your pre-order on over here:

Desertion track premiered at Aquarium Drunkard

I'm happy to announce that in May, Shhpuma, a great part of the Clean Feed label that focuses on releasing music that goes "beyond, below and above the jazz realm," will release my new record, Desertion.

This album features my Many Arms bandmate, Johnny DeBlase, on upright and electric bass, Jamie Saft on Hammond organ and piano, and Ches Smith on drums, masterfully recorded by Saft at Potterville International Sound. Dan Blacksberg contributed a trombone choir and a string arrangement performed by June Bender.

Aquarium Drunkard dropped the first taste today, premiering the track "Just For a Moment, I Stood There in Silence," in a review that also discusses the new Solar Motel record (on which I play), and the new Sunwatchers record.
