Despite having mentioned it late last year, I’ve been continuing to work on new material for the Peregrination album, which is now longer going to be called that. I’ve actually created a lot of material for the album this year, and it looks like it’s going to end up being a double album at this rate. I’ve recently been on a one-track-a-day routine as part of some OCD self-help, keeping things structured and not allowing myself to worry too much about whether the album is finished or not for the minute. Focusing wholly on one piece at a time has resulted in some work I’m really proud of, and I’m genuinely excited about where this album is going. I’m using lots of samples. I’ll keep working on that for a while and I’m sure you’ll all hear it next June or something knowing the usual process.
Otherwise, Exteriors and Arboretum are still lined up ready to go, the former at some point in late spring and the latter in late ’18/early ’19. That’s still a lot of albums. Meanwhile, it’s spring, and I’m going to be going outside a lot because the outside is a good place to be.
Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of Nurse With Wound and Stephan Micus and really early vaporwave.
