Now Playing Tracks

Listen/purchase: the preservation ep by brian sendrowitz

This EP is a collection of 4 track home recordings that I originally released as a limited run CD-R in early 2005, a few months before I began to work on the material that would become the first Beat Radio album. The songs have always been close to my heart, and looking back they feel set apart from the other work I’ve done. The live recordings included here as bonus tracks are from a session I recorded for Michael Leahy’s Cool as Folk radio show at KDVS in Davis, CA in February 2005.



I think chaos is a perception. People say that there’s too much information, and I would say that there’s no more information now than there was before. The difference is that people believe they have to know it—that the more information they have, the better the product is going to be and the more money the company is going to make. I don’t think it depends as much on the amount of information someone has as on the way it’s taken in. And that needs to be mindfully.

"Mindfulness" is rocketing up the 2k14 buzzword hate list but the basic point is right: the problem isn’t the stream, it’s the fear of stepping out of it, to the extent that doing so now needs its own "movement"

Hi guys, 

I hope everyone is feeling great, winding up your clocks, and hanging on to hope.

I’ve been quiet for a little while.  Well, I’m never really all that quiet, but out of touch maybe.  My wife Liz and I just welcomed a new baby into the world.  His name is Maxwell, he’s a champ.  It’s been nice to take some down time, count our blessings, be amazed at the universe, binge watch television shows, etc.

I have been feeling inspired and anxious to get back to making weird pop songs though.  In the spirit of that I recorded a cover of a Waxahatchee song that really love over the weekend.  You can find it as a free download here as part of our 2014 singles series:

It’s a song that really knocked me out when I first heard it last fall.  Hope you enjoy our weird synthed-out take on it.  In retrospect I guess I was aiming to turn the song into a sort of summer anthem for non-confrontational people.

Also, our pals Mount Sharp have embarked on a residency at Pianos this month, and we’re excited to let you know that we’ll be sharing the bill with them on Tuesday May 27th.  Hope to see you guys soon!

Take it forever,
