If it seems like my recent posts have been getting shorter, there’s a reason: I’ve been busying recording music with my band! I play guitar in Phil From Accounting. We’re a punk-rock trio where we all sing and write songs together. We just released our first single, “Carrie,” last week, which you can listen to below.

Our debut EP will be out next month. Stay tuned!

From our Bandcamp:

“‘Carrie’ from ‘If You’re Reading This, Please Call Mom,’ out September 2017. Released August 18, 2017. Written by PFA. Brady Gerber: guitar, vocals. Amanda Webster: bass, vocals. Jamie Williams: drums, vocals. Produced, mixed, and mastered by Oliver Ignatius at Mama Coco’s Funky Kitchen in Brooklyn, NY. Logo by Scott Carr.”

Year: 1970

Album: The Last Poets

This isn’t technically jazz, but how else can you describe this rhythm? These voices move like angry horns played by a pissed off Miles Davis who has seen too many friends in dire need and too many bystanders doing nothing. This record, with its unflinching fusion of words and rhythm, is one of the logical starting points of hip-hop and rap, and it’s the most realistic song called “New York, New York.”
