New Album: Unnatural Disaster

After years in the making, Unnatural Disaster is finally ready. Full of acoustic guitars, banjos, mandolins, harmonicas, harmonies, and a hodgepodge rhythm section, Unnatural Disaster involves a cast of characters in scenes that play out over the course of the record. Some would call this a concept album or a record with a story. This story tells of Addie Greene, her husband, a flooding L.A. River, a burning house, a serial arsonist shot dead in a motel, and a paranoid grandfather.

Is this an antiquated idea? Why release a themed story album in 2012, when the iTunes digital single is the supposed new ideal? Well…maybe it’s better not to think too hard about how some people say other people should listen to music. Maybe this record just happened that way. Maybe all of this doesn’t matter much because a song is only as good as the connections it makes, and sometimes it’s just better to listen.

I'm very proud of this record. I won't admit it too often, but the entire album was recorded alone in an apartment in L.A. I played everything on it, so it is full of the perfect imperfections that I love.

So, there it is. Check out Unnatural Disaster in the Music section, and buy it in the Store or wherever you like to get your music (like iTunes or CDBaby). You can also find it on streaming websites like Spotify and Earbits.
