Jeffrey Prosser, a D.C. graphic designer and integral part of the Washington, D.C. experimental music scene as both musician and promoter, passed away on April 3, 2015. He was an exceedingly sweet and generous man with many friends across D.C.’s various music and arts scenes and beyond. Shortly after his death, two memorial concerts were organized in Adams Morgan and Fredericksburg, Virginia. Now, some of his musician friends have put together a compilation in his honor, titled Thirsty and Miserable, a phrase Jeffrey was particularly fond of.
The compilation features twenty-one artists (twenty-two for the downloadable version) who knew and loved Jeffrey, featuring both locals and musicians from farther afield. The artwork includes designs by Jeffrey, including art for flyers he designed to promote shows around the DC area. Proceeds from sales of the compilation go to Bread for the City, a charity selected by the Prosser family.
Jeffrey released a pretty amazing EP under the moniker Keep through Fuzzy Panda as well as an individual track the first Hydrophones compilation.
TĀLĀ spread some love for the FACE-EATERS OF HONG KONG in a handful of interviews. Specifically, she digs the track This Jamba Juice turned me into a woman and I’d like my money back please. Wonderland, the BBC, and The Fader each rocked a TĀLĀ playlist with the song.
The track, along with the rest of the EATING FACES EP, is available here.
DJ Jukie Jinx + Timmy Sells His Soul. This is the most frenetic thing we’ve released. It’s like a mix of vaporwave and Melt Banana. Other than that, the best thing to do is to listen this insane EP from two extremely creative people.
The National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration Vents Program has made public a series of underwater recordings of whales, ships, unknown sounds, and even earthquakes. Timmy Sells His Soul, Tag Cloud, and Immanent Voiceless made tracks using only these sounds.
