Best Albums of the Year + Bandcamp Friday!

With Bandcamp having another no fee day on Friday, I decided to jump the gun and release my favorite albums of the year list early, in case you want to check out some music and support some artists. Let’s go! ** Aesop Rock – Spirit World Field Guide https://aesoprock.bandcamp.com/album/spirit-world-field-guide I thought that anything following the great Malibu Ken collaboration would suffer in comparison, but boy oh boy, did Aesop Rock teach me a lesson. Is this his best album ever? I think an argument could be made. His flow is unstoppable, and his mixing of the surreal and symbolic, personal and flippant, is a wonder to behold. Another thing? This album is fun to listen to. In these times, that’s probably all you need to know. Touche...

A preview of Infected: Legacy

As a holiday treat (?) I thought I’d post a bit of the upcoming Infected: Legacy (out December 18th). Here, Holden pays a visit, and we learn that he’s gone full antiifa … with some help from Roan? Roan came back to find Holden making weird drink combinations in the kitchen, much to Dylan’s… amusement? Dylan’s aura was bleeding red, which meant some annoyance. But Holden did bring that out in him. Holden looked subdued, at least for him. His hair was pale-brown, shaggy but short, and he was wearing a Black Lives Matter T-shirt and jeans that had probably been washed—and also in style—back around Seattle’s grunge phase. Still, with him wearing them, he was probably bringing them back into style again. Holden was also...

Infected: Legacy – How Many Chapters Does It Have?

I’m hoping to get Infected: Legacy out by the end of the year – cross your fingers and let’s hope democracy/the world doesn’t blow up before then – but I’m also stuck with doing advanced hype for it. How on earth do I do that? I’m awkward at the best of times. I’m a writer, not a PR person. so while I ponder what to do, I decided to give you the titles of the first ten chapters of the story. If you know my previous Infected books, you’ll know the chapter titles are mostly song titles. Do they tell you what the chapter contains? Rarely. Often it’s more of an atmosphere thing. Keep that in mind as the chapter songs roll. * 1 – The Reason They Hate Me (Daughters) https://youtu.be/cqa4_YuQQV8 2 – Down To Drown (Night...
