The Down House - “Time”




North Bay outfit The Down House posted a new song called “Time” on their Bandcamp today. Sounds like there’s a new release being planned with Broke Hatré, the label which released the band´s EP “Low” back in July. My guess is a new EP/Cassette but I’ll post updates on it when I have some more info.

New song out today

This is Griffin. I took this picture last year while touring through New England. I had taken a hit of acid one hour prior to taking this picture and it was the best one on the roll - who would’ve known? We went a little crazy that night. I ended up wearing his vest on stage and telling the crowd: “I’m a human man! I’m one human man!” Joyce Manor also played and as you can imagine…their set was wild. Cheers.

This song is amazing. I see many modern bands listening to this and thinking to themselves: “Why can’t we sound like this?” They recorded the record in 1979 in the Bahamas, which is pretty trippy and if you listen to the entire things party vibes will come to you. Please check it out. You won’t be bummed. 

5 Philly Cells

This is my dude RJ Leimpeter. He’s been in various bay area punk and hardcore bands and is the proprietor of Timeless Coffee in Oakland, CA. RJ wanted to start a quality coffee shop of his own for many years, and within the past couple years made it happen. They specialize in chocolate, everything is vegan and they roast their own beans. The coffee is the best I’ve had in the East Bay, and if you’re coming to town for any reason, you should really stop by and check out the place. Punks, freaks, and weirdos welcome. Also, Vegan brunch on Sunday. Bang Bang. I love you all.

Marissa & Leonard

These are two friends of mine, Marissa Cianciulli & Lenard Coons. I took pictures of the two them about a year ago, and just developed the rolls to find something great. I’ve been close with Marissa for a decade and met Lenny upon visiting her. Because each of them live in Philadelphia, the content is already very American in itself. These images have the appeal of timelessness - being, they could have been taken in any era. I’m working on a body of work that involves that idea. Hopefully it follows suit. I love you all.
