If you’re wondering what I’m up to in Australia or just miss me and wanna hear me ramble, check out this interview I did with Jacknife featuring Smith Street Band drummer Chris “Burn City” Cowburn. #BXCX

Doing a short little tour in Australia while I’m out here producing the next Smith Street Band record. Everything is gonna be fuuuuuckiiiiiing tiiiiiiiiight.

Hey y’all! Played an acoustic version of a new song in Las Vegas a few weeks ago… check it out herrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrre.

Play On My Next Record!

Hey party people! I am getting ready to head out to the bay area to record a new record with some buddies (John from Bomb, Mike from Shinobu/Hard Girls, Kevin from Bruce Lee Band) and Jack Shirley (Joyce Manor, Deafheaven, Classics of Love) in sunny East Palo Alto, California. I am super stoked, but unfortunately flying out to the other side of the country puts me at a little bit of a disadvantage resource-wise. So, I’m looking for a handful of instruments and/or people to play those instruments… they are as follows!

- MOOG PRODIGY! (i am looking to play this as I can’t fly my Moog ughhh)
- BASS CLARINET!
- FLUTE!
- REGULAR CLARINET!
- MARCHING BAND BASS DRUM!
- MARCHING BAND SNARE!
- MARCHING BAND CYMBALS!
- CELLO!

Why not play on this fun record? Is it because your MOMMY AND DADDY SAID NO?! FUCK YOUR MOMMY AND DADDY AND PLAY ON THIS FUN RECORD!!!

Or, if your mommy and daddy have a Moog Prodigy, please ask them to lend it to me kthxbye.

Last week I played on The Chris Gethard Show with some buddies. Playing on a live TV show made me nervous, and I think The Chris Gethard Show is the most uniquely funny show that’s on television right now so that made me double nervous. Thankfully, Chris Gethard and his crew constantly encourage everyone to get as weird as possible and me and my weird friends fit in perfectly. This was so much fun and here’s a video. Thanks TCGS!

Dream Journal #1

Just woke up from a dream where I was playing my first show with the rad band I’m going to be playing with on this short west coast tour. And also Morgan from Hard Girls. I got so hung up the order of songs on the set list that I was still just hanging out in the audience thinking about it while the band played the first three songs without me (and sounded awesome) … After the third song while struggling to get my amp on the stage and set up quickly a man kept saying to me in sing-song “Jeff / give me your breasts / I’ll give you the rest.” I repeatedly said “please stop, I don’t like this.” Then he said “It’s OK, I just got back from Britain, I don’t even have breasts anymore.” Then I looked up and saw that this guy was like 300 pounds.

Then I woke up. Mailorder time. Welcome to my tumblr.

It’s beautiful outside. Have a great weekend everybody!

HEAD ON OVER TO QUOTE UNQUOTE RECORDS TO DOWNLOAD THE NEW RECORD I MADE WITH CHRIS FARREN OF FAKE PROBLEMS.

Chris Farren and I had a real fun time hanging out and making this record and I think it translated to the songs. Fun poppy fuzzy sometimes quiet but sometimes loud and then sometimes it’s IN BETWEEN. Also, Benny from Gaslight played drums on it and that guy is just great.

Come see us play our only planned show right now at Shea Stadium in Brooklyn, April 26th. Chris Gethard is amazing and will be performing. Mikey Erg is amazing and will be performing. YJY is amazing and will be performing. 

And if you haven’t already pre-ordered the record, please get on top on that shit right here and help us break even on this fun little thing we did. Thanks!

The A.V. Club is streaming a record I made with Chris Farren! A/V FOREVERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!
