I’m honored to be a part of this series among such great musicians, and to be able to donate the proceeds to a wonderful charity in San Jose, Quetzal House. As with so many other Graveface releases, the artwork, care & attention, and—did you hear?—colored vinyl are also some of the reasons that make this release so special. Why I’m also excited is that The Old Manse was inspired by a song of my brother Matthew Sweat’s new music project, Inner City Cruiser; the song is “Seeing You Another Day,” a short instrumental on the release and one that led me down its particular path. It was beyond amazing to finally make some music with my brother, who also plays on “Kern” (you can hear a snippet of that song featured in the sampler video). As always, thank you so much for listening and for your support. -M.A.S.

This is the first I’ve seen of these two new videos from our “supergroup,” The Marshmallow Ghosts, and I must admit I had to watch the first one with my hands over my eyes! Pretty/gory stuff. As I mentioned in earlier posts, the project features Lady Lazarus on vocals, members of Black Moth Super Rainbow, Dreamend, Hospital Ships, and Casket Girls, and is out now via Graveface.
