Oh hey, there’s 3.5 hours of new Carbon 7 music up on our site as of Sunday night. I’m really happy with the these mixes & I’m still in awe of the fact that I’m in a band with these 2 wizards:
This damn Jeff Buckley album has its hooks in me again - been stuck on it for a couple of days, now. This happens a couple times a year. I’ve never has an album affect me emotionally like this one.
In a fit of "inspiration," I slapped togehter some cover art so I could upload this 2013 Carbon 7 album to bandcamp: https://carbon7.bandcamp.com/album/panning-for-stars
Somewhat mellow & coherent, this is one of my 2 or 3 faves all the way through.
As a Native American I'm still here. I am strong. I'm not a mythological fairy tale character. I will speak/write my native language when my ancestors were forbidden. I will not be stopped. I'm a descendant of survivors from the largest genocide in the world. I'm a generational curse breaker. I refuse 2 be white washed. I refuse 2 celebrate Thanksgiving, 4th of July, or Columbus Day. I refuse 2 be apart of organized religion. I will 4ever defend tribal sovereignty, treaties, & natural resources.

I apologize for the branch of my ancestry who came to this continent specifically to enrich themselves by killing the native residents of the land. What they did was horrible and can never be adequately atoned for. I'll keep doing what I can to disassemble the mechanisms that make such travesties possible.
4 days off (woooo!) -- Weekend poject: After looking through new & used Apple desktop options, I've decided to stick with my 2008 Mac Pro for as long as I can. Going to run the High Sierra Patcher on my bot drive & see if I can update this thing from El Capitan so I can run the newest Logic & Adobe stuff. I figure I'll buy a couple years if it works. Step 1: Procure a suitable but affordable USB drive. Looks like I'm going shopping tomorrow with the masses.
Alright, here's Track 2 (as yet untitled) from the Carbon 7 album Infrared. Recorded live, August 14th 2018. Wholly improvisational. Dennis & I neatly divide time & frequencies into even pieces while Ron distorts the fabric of the universe.
You heard it here first on Mastodon!
