The 6th full-length studio recording and first since his move to Baltimore, Disqualifier steps beyond the shadow of Ottoman Black to yield a programmatic, mature and vulnerable setting. Dense brass, concrete sounds and mutated noise reveal a pointed narrative & unmatched compositional stroke. Equal parts harsh and ambient, Disqualifier is an exemplar for the American underground. Recorded from nothing November, 2012 through July, 2013 in Baltimore, MD. Additional musicians: Jeff Stockham french horn, Chima Faraji tuba, Jeremy Mann trumpet, & Julian F drums. 150gm black vinyl housed in a custom letterpress printed jacket with download code. Edition of 250.
