New Album Streaming/U Sco's first Show/Film

Hey friends,
My new album "Hex Fortunes" is now streaming in it's entirety here. I'm super excited about how the record turned out, it's been a pretty intense five months of tracking, composing, and arranging but I'm glad that the music is finally mastered. I will be waiting a few months however to release it proper, working closely with longtime friend and filmmaker Joseph Burgess on a collaborative video that will go along with the music and be included as a dvd with the album. Joe is an incredibly talented and creative individual that makes some really great stop-animation films and music. Additionally, I'm planning on performing the album live along with the "Hex Fortunes" film as soon as it is ready for release. Christmas time?
In other news...U Sco is playing this coming Monday night at Laughing Horse Books! This show marks the band's first live performance. The band features Jon Scheid and Phil Cleary of D.LB,D! and The Jezebel Spirit fame. Also playing are wicked sick bands Groundskeeper, The Early, and possibly one more TBA. See you there?

East Coast Mini-Tour/New Album/Music for Film

Hello friends,
Just wanted to give an update on some musical happenings. I have finished the tracking of a new album. The album consists of one composition that spans about 30 minutes. It is broken into a few sections and is based around acoustic/electric guitar and drums/drum-samples/found-sound samples. It will be mastered very soon and I'm planning on releasing the record on vinyl and/or finding the right label to put behind it, eventually. On the wicked soon. I have been hard at work on the album since around March of this year and I'm extremely excited to share it with friends.
In other news...
I'm heading east for a couple shows in September

Sep 16 @ Cafe Orwell in Brooklyn, NY w/ Jonny Deblase Trio and Kevin Hufnagel
Sep 17 @ Sinergy Space Philadelphia, PA w/ Many Arms and Many More

And yet more news, a few tracks off of "Brittle Star City" will appear in a film titled "Quiet Place in The Universe" by filmmaker Tyler Ludowitz. Including an unreleased track titled "Auroral Lips" which can be downloaded here:
