Karen Meat just announced our new album "You're An Ugly Person" with a new single, Share A Dinner. Arin and I recorded it on Valentine's Day 2017. The new album releases April 20, 2018 on Emotional Response Records and you can pre-order a limited edition (100) baby blue vinyl now through bandcamp!
In 2018 I am launching my record label, Telsrow Records. Its something I've thought about for a few years now, and my second LP will become the first release this May. For now it is an outlet for my own music and things I've worked on in some capacity. If time and resources allow I hope to put out thoughtful and challenging music from Iowans and the midwest at large.
My father and I worked together to make my second LP happen and I decided to name the label Telsrow Records to honor that. Also, Telsrow is a pretty rare name so Google should like it.

November 2017 was a busy month for me at Flat Black Studios. On Halloween, I engineered for Anthony Worden. We tracked some background vocals with Arin Eaton and I pulled double and played bass on a few tracks. That weekend I came in to play some whacked-out guitar for Good Morning Midnight. Luke was engineering so it was nice to come in just as a session player. I did some spaced out leads and made some synth-y pads using the infinite setting on my Cathedral Reverb.
Colleen from Cedar Rapids and Hot Room from Iowa City did two days each to record and mix EPs. Good Morning Midnight and River Glen come in over the Thanksgiving weekend. Nate Montover and producer Sage Satterfield round out the month, and I'll also be sneaking in to finish guitar and mixing on the next Karen Meat record due out in the spring.
