Feeling so much love to receive these awesome custom posters, cranked out this week by @lubeslc after we met last weekend(!), for my two Salt Lake City shows this weekend!! Come tonight to @copperpalatepress and check out Sunday's show at Downtown Artist Collective!! (Also, check out for sweet prints and designs!!) . . โœจ๐Ÿ’—โœจ . .

I ๐Ÿ’— my temp studio space this week between Missoula and Bozeman, Montana. Scroll through to the video and sound on! I'm playing tonight at The Palace on the Hill in Bozeman, show hosted by . . .

Missoula, Montana

We drove over the border from Idaho into Montana and immediately saw layers of fluffy and expansive clouds. The big skies are real! I'm playing Missoula Psych Fest tonight and in Bozeman, MT on Wed 7/17. Can't wait to catch more celestial inspiration~~~๐ŸŒ… . . .

I'm very excited that my absolute favorite track "Sohni" from my upcoming album Parted Plains is officially out today!! (Check out the link in bio or Sify, Bandcamp, Apple Music, etc.) Read on for my thoughts about the song ~~~ . . . ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’”โšฑ๏ธ๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’› . . . When I was writing and recording Parted Plains, I was reading a lot about South Asian (mostly Punjabi) and Middle Eastern folklore, the western translations of these stories, and how they (still) resonate with people today (including me!) This song captures that moment in the tragic romance Sohni Mahiwal when Sohni is swimming across the Chenab River to meet her lover Mahiwal but realizes that the she typically uses to stay afloat isn't the urn that she had been using but rather, an unbaked facsimile. The song opens with her realization and continues as she struggles in the stormy waters and eventually drowns before Mahiwal can save her. This one goes to all the lovers! ๐Ÿ’— Come hear this one in my live shows this August! . . . ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’”โšฑ๏ธ๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’› ๐Ÿ“ท: @itsjacobmarley . . .

Happy solstice release day to @spinstersounds' first compilation QUILT OF THE UNIVERSE! My track "Unstruck Sound (Santahu Man Pavnai Sukh Baniaa)" is first on the compilation, and I'm also performing it live on tour right now!! I'm so excited to be on this comp with my dear friend @jj_fs -- her "Return of the Mack" cover is prima! ๐Ÿ’ฏ . . . The album is now available digitally & on limited edition golden cassette tapes up on Spinster's Bandcamp. Learn more about the artists at ๐ŸŒŽโœจ๐ŸŒ‘โ˜„๏ธ . . . In 1977, NASA launched a 12-inch record into space, with the words โ€œTo the makers of musicโ€”all worlds, all times,โ€ inscribed in the plate. 100 years earlier in rural Iowa, science teacher Ellen Harding Baker stitched her โ€œSolar System Quiltโ€ to illustrate the known galaxy for her astronomy students. Featuring many unreleased tracks, QUILT OF THE UNIVERSE shares these crossed impulsesโ€”to blast terrestrial expression into the cosmos, and translate galactic information into an earthly object. It is a constellation of perspectives and interpretations of the story of our respective corners of this world and time, for the listeners of musicโ€”all worlds, all times. . . . @marisaandersonmusicย @villageofspacesย @jxfussell @amidangย 

Love-liesse [luhv-lee-suh] noun ::: a state of feeling deep affection (love) and jubilation. . . . . :::::โค๏ธ::::: . . . My new single and music video (link in bio) are officially out now! Inspired by Middle Eastern and South Asian folktales (and Western adaptations of the stories), "Love-liesse" tells a story of theย  forbidden love of Sohni Mahiwal, that ultimately leads to their deathsย (and is also inspired by the relationship between Prince Ahmed and the fairy Paribanou from One Thousand and One Nights). The video mimics my process of making music, combining traditional methods with modern digital electronic methods, by using the grey & white โ€œtransparencyโ€ grid as a sort of digital liminal spaceโ€”a space from which all creation beginsโ€”to allow further rumination and where the images from the paintings are transformed and reconstituted into a vast digital landscape to create a new vision. In this new vision, the lovers do not perish in the choppy waters, instead they are happily reunited above the waters, depicted here in the late 18th century painting โ€œEmbracing Lovers with Sparklersโ€ which shows a loving couple during Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Lights, which celebrates the triumph of light over darkness. . . . :::::โค๏ธ::::: . . . ๐ŸŽฅ byย @redandshiny ๐Ÿ’ฟVinyl LP+digital PREORDER NOW (link in @leavingrecords bio) world-wide August 2, 2019 ๐ŸŒŽ . . . :::::โค๏ธ::::: . . . It's very fitting that I went to see the new version of Aladdinย last night! Kudos to the new production, a revitalized tale that focuses on female empowerment. So much more to say... But I encourage you to watch the video and check out the stories I mentioned and consider how they affect your impression of people and cultures from the East. . . . ย 

I'm all east coast at heart BUT California is awe-inspiring! Today, I kicked through sand dunes near Fort Bragg. On Thursday, 6/20, I'm going to perform live in Healdsburg, CA at @theelephantintheroom2018 with Kendra Amalie, whose single "Breathe Underwater" is out now! (And while you're at it, check out my new single "Raiments" ๐Ÿ˜‰). Come check out our music on our west coast tour! (And I'll have more tour dates announced soon!) ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’™ . . . . ย
