PopMatters premieres Extravision’s newest single “The Fear of Missing Out”!
I began to focus on big-picture realizations I was having…such as…recognizing and overcoming conditioned fears I had built up for my first 28 years.

All Things Go premieres The Slowdown‘s new single “Look Older”:
Gorgeous, though drenched despair, ‘Look Older’ plunges into the solipsistic trench at the heart of the human condition.

Coolly delivered heartache has never sounded so sweet.

Gloom Balloon premiere “Drying the Eyes of the Goddess of Gloom” with Vents Magazine. Stream the first single from their sophomore LP, Drying the Eyes of the Goddess of Gloom, Under the Stars and the Moon, out September 1st on Maximum Ames Records:
The song is the center piece of the record. It’s all about the stages of falling in love. It’s a lot of stories rolled into one and I had to write this one to make me believe I could even start thinking about making a new record. The production is like all my musical influences wrapped into a big box with a tag that says ‘I love you, now pull me into the bathroom and kiss me already!’
