MXR Phase 90

For some reason the other day, I had a moment where I completely remembered the sensation of being transported out of the normal world by one of the first guitar effects pedals I had/borrowed, an MXR Phase 90. I can't remember if I actually owned it or if I just borrowed it from my friend Thadd, but the weird swooshing sound it made, which I can't really imagine even using now, was at the time completely captivating. God only knows where that pedal ended up, but I hope it is still swooshing away somewhere; it is also probably worth $600 now, with my luck.

New EP: Full Sun

Back from Germany and the Netherlands. Awesome to spend time in the Ruhrgebiet, where there appears to be actual appreciation for the cultural landscape of the industrial sublime. I now have enough photos for approximately 5 years of bandcamp EPs.

So I recorded this to start working my way through them.
