The Bellwether Syndicate – Vestige & Vigil

My good friends The Bellwether Syndicate (William Faith and “Scary Lady” Sarah Rose Faith) have released their new full-length Vestige & Vigil, which I co-produced and mixed at The Eye Socket.

Listen through the player at left or visit their Bandcamp page.

The band is on tour this fall with the March Violets – check their website for details.


The new Real Space Noise album EMPTY AND POINTLESS – and the sorta-instrumental companion EP LOST SCIENCE – are now available through streaming and download providers everywhere: BandcampSpotifyTidalAmazonApple Music/iTunesGoogle PlaySoundCloud • etc.

Real Space Noise is dark electronic art rock with strong post-punk and new wave influence, industrial leanings and a science fiction bent. Watch the video for Utopian below, and visit Vimeo or YouTube for more.

New video: Real Space Noise – The Promise

In only a few short weeks (on October 4) I will be releasing the first new Real Space Noise records in 13 years:  The new album Empty and Pointless and instrumental companion EP Lost Science.

Here, now, is the brand new video for the second single:  The Promise.  This song continues in the dark electro vein of the first single Utopian but goes even darker:  bleak, disturbing and bitterly satirical.  The song (and video) also reveal the source of the title “Empty and Pointless.”

Pre-order now on Bandcamp, or visit for more information.

Ichor – Exhumed: 1996-98

A million years ago, in the mid-1990s, an industrial rock band called Ichor (Ron Jon Hartman, Steve Ashburn and me) recorded songs for an EP to follow up our first album, Nonplus. We played those songs live on the Apparition tour in 1996 (with Faith and the Muse, Sunshine Blind and Malign) and some other shows around Los Angeles, and a few of them were released on compilations. But the EP was never released…

Over 20 years later, we have unearthed those forgotten recordings, remastered them, and released them together as intended for the first time. As a bonus, we’ve included a few unfinished works-in-progress from the same time period, never before released in any form.

This is angry, hardcore mid-90s industrial rock: bleak, sneering, brutally aggressive and occasionally danceable. Yours for only five bucks.
