Hey all, I haven't kept up on here too much and for that I am sorry.

I return with exciting news!

I have a new record coming out on Thrill Jockey Records on May 19th.  It is called "In Plain Speech", and it features many friends & collaborators.  The artwork can be seen below.  You can also hear a track from the record at NPR music!

It's called "Fantasize The Scene" &  is about becoming friends with a stranger, having to part ways, and never knowing if you'll ever see them again. I always seem to meet the most important people on the road, generally just for 1 night before moving onto another city. But I think about those people after the fact, and hope to coincidentally cross paths again. Something about an instant friendship lingers forever. Does this ever happen to you?

Thank you for all of your support!  A lot of news coming soon.

Happy International Women's Day / Fantastic Females Pt I

Today's a day for all of us to celebrate!  What better day than today to share this small list of female oriented musical groups that I absolutely love.  I hope you find some things you recognize, and others that you don't.  Take the time to google all of these fantastic bands, you won't regret it!

New Beginnings

It's time to say hello to 2015, which promises new beginnings and adventures.  I just wanted to take this time to say thank you to everyone I met in 2014 who has helped me along my way.  2014 was a year of travel for me, and although contact was not always immediate, I've made some life long friends, and have learned so much more than I ever imagined.  2015 begins with a shiny new, mastered, full length audio recording!  I'm so excited to share this one with you all, but that also means a huge shift in my sonic presentation.  The year of "Overdue" is over, and I am a bit sad to see it go.  Here at L&L headquarters we went through 2 pressings of LP & cassettes, which is quite a success! 

In support of "Overdue" I had the opportunity to play over 100 gigs, in 23 new cities, and 8 new countries.

A big hug to these people, all who I've met on the road.  If you haven't heard of these artists, I've linked each to a music page.  Please check it out!  

Here's to 2015, revisiting all the great places and people I've seen in 2014, and exploring the uncharted territory that will always exist.

See you next year

Moon Bros. "Frijolillo" / L&L003

I am so excited to say that we have 100 cassettes of my neighbor's music, "Moon Bros.", available.  He is one of the most talented musicians I have ever met and I hope you can find the time to enjoy some of his tunes.  Cassettes are available for $7.00 (includes S+H in the U.S.).  Please get in touch for world postage.  Info below::


Moon Bros. - Frijolillo

The first L&L release not originating from the palette of labelhead Haley Fohr. Matt Schneider is a guitar player, and maybe the best we’ve ever personally known. Seeing Matt’s fingerwork firsthand is the ideal scenario for experiencing this music; even to the untrained and unpracticed eye Matt’s style is confounding: adorned with personal flourishes and bluntly complex, it is simultaneously free of traditional scales, chords, and keys. Each composition is instantaneous,  improvised and launched from the aether fully formed, making sense only in relation to the spontaneously formed rules of sound interaction. This limited cassette only release is available only here, at shows,  and wherever Matt happens to leave a few copies in exchange for taco money. Recorded at The Compound in Little Village, not to be confused with any of the other many compounds where recording happens.
