As of today things are looking somewhat different in here. I was getting a little tired of the appearance of this site and figured I’d set about redecorating. Also, just to make it a little more of a challenge I decided to build something nice from scratch rather than using a preset theme, so hope you like. On that note, if you have any constructive comments, anything not working as it should or whatever, let me know. There are a few newfangled webtricks in there so it probably looks best in something like Firefox or Safari, but it should look ok in all browsers.
Anyway, shh web-Markland.
I have a new cassette EP coming out in January. It’s called Kayfabe Juncture and is two instrumental tracks I recorded for a film/performance art piece by Rhiannon Chaloner, commissioned for the Arnolfini Gallery in Bristol, which took place in June 2010. And that’s the artwork above. (Pre)ordering details will be up on here soon.
New tour dates
Finally, I’m doing a small selection of dates along the US east coast in January, so if you live in one of the cities below, come and hang out. I’m very excited that I’ll be joined on guitar and percussion by Andrew Churchman of famed and wonderful Boston-based Slumberland band, Pants Yell! and more recently, CUFFS. Also, the Homophones will be playing with us for a couple of dates, who are most excellent.
19th17th January – Boston @ Middlesex Lounge, w/ CUFFS
20th18th January – Philadelphia @ (Venue TBC), w/ Homophones and Scott Churchman
21st19th Jan – Washington DC @ Velvet Lounge w/ Homophones & Black Telephone
22nd20th Jan – Brooklyn (Bushwick) @ Envelope
Oh! Before I go, Bristol people will I’m sure be stoked to hear that our city’s finest vegan establishment, Cafe Kino, are moving and expanding very shortly, and I’ll be playing a co-set with Sleeping State-ette Liz Hickson, and wonderfully wonderful Rozi Plain for the launch of the new place (yes, there’s even room for a PA in the new place!). This is taking place on the afternoon of Sunday 19th December, from 2pm. See you there amigos.
