it’s out now: https://raisedbyswans6.bandcamp.com/ only because i need you all to know how much this means to me, how much it feels like i’ve just uploaded not music but blood into this laptop, everything you hear on these songs (and on the future album) is me alone. i even played the drums, which involved me […]
four songs from volume 1 of my fourth album will be released today at 1:01 pm EST, on bandcamp exclusively. seven related things while my brain is still functioning: 1. the four songs are free, but a digital pre-order will begin at the same time – if you pre-order volume 1, you’ll automatically be sent […]
i think my heart might burst. home from a long day of mixing the first four songs – only six days now until they’re released and the pre-sale of part 1 begins. love, eric.
this would feel surreal enough even if 2020 wasn’t all that it has (and hasn’t) been. hard to know when a good time is for anything anymore. but maybe this just means that now is more important than ever. even before everything changed, i’d promised myself to be less closed for album #4’s release than […]

i’ve not known what to say here for a while now. i still don’t. but i’m sending love through my songs always. i hope you can feel this. i know some are wondering about album #4. i have only the vaguest update about this for now, which is that if the situation continues to improve, […]
10 years ago today, i released my second album, ‘no ghostless place’. i wrote its 13 songs over four years in the same little room i’m sitting in now, using a borrowed ADAT machine to layer parts, and with number six often curled in my lap as i worked. on my first day of recording […]
all i’ve been doing since my last update is pouring myself into album #4. i’ve now recorded approximately 91% of its instrumentation and sung precisely 72.22% of its songs in the studio. unfortunately i’m also 100% out of money. this is inevitable when one prioritizes recording costs over far less exciting expenses like rent/heat/clothing. who […]
happy fifth anniversary, Öxnadalur. love, eric.
