Bobby Chiz – “Vibe Tech” Video

Mississippi boy Bobby Chiz (member of Dead Gaze & Dent May) has released a debut homemade psych-pop jam and video titled “Vibe Tech.”


I was recently tuned into Unknown Mortal Orchestra by the boys over at Cats Purring. This past weekend I was able to catch U.M.O. live in action at the Mohawk here in Austin. They played all the jams I was familiar with in addition to some new tracks and closed with an incredible cover of Can – “Vitamin C.”

Be Honest

Be Honest mix

My good friend Kate Bingaman-Burt asked me to curate a mix for Be Honest, the Portland State second annual graphic design review hosted by Friends of Graphic Design. This year features an all star appearance and lecture by Jennifer Daniel!

The music selection covers a lot of ground, paralleling not only my journey through design school, but anyone’s really. Taste, interest, and skills evolve throughout a 4 year program so I wanted to showcase that by featuring a wide range of jams. The cover art for this 29 track mix was inspired by Jennifer’s ridiculously rad lecture poster.

Sufjan – Impossible Soul

I went to this show…and it was an incredible experience. Sufjan Stevens is quite the entertainer and I found the Age of Adz visuals extremely interesting.
