Live recording from Desertion Trio and Relix Magazine

On June 14, Desertion Trio played at Pittsburgh's excellent City of Asylum. A multi-track recording of our set is now up for free download at Tyler Wilcox's bootleg and live/rare music blog, Doom & Gloom From the Tomb.

"Dig into these four Pittsburgh jams, which put math rock, free jazz, psychedelia and much more into the blender to thrilling effect. The band is Johnny DeBlase on bass and Kevin Shea on drums, and they both provide firm footing for Millevoi’s high-wire playing. Radical."

Check it out here, along with the rest of Tyler's awesome review:



Relix Magazine features a great article by Jesse Jarnow on "The New Golden Age of the Guitar."  It focuses on some great folks, including my man Chris Forsyth, and includes this very kind line:
"On The Rarity of Experience, Forsyth finds an excellent foil in Nick Millevoi, another Philadelphia-based player whose own Desertion reveals him as a jazz-drenched electric guitarist who could maaaybe make Frank Zappa cool again. It’s 2016. Anything could happen."
