TEETH LIKE OPERAS, KEUE YEO




My new album, Keue Yeo, released under my musical moniker Teeth Like Operas, is finished and available to purchase. It is a limited-run cassette release of 50, containing songs that I recorded in 2011. These songs mean a great deal to me, and so I took care in designing and making the packaging that houses them. Each case is one-of-a-kind and handmade from scraps of second-hand leather clothing, sewn at home, with hand-painted details on the packaging as well as the artwork enclosed. 

Above is a glimpse of the handmade packaging. 

Additional songs can be heard on soundcloud. To view the teaser for the album, visit here.

This album is an invocation to Murcielago, the Zapotec bat god that, among other things, is a bridge between heaven and hell. A deity to carry me up and out of the depths of a trying year. Much gratitude is due to all those who have supported me and encouraged me this past year, during these dark days and hours.

The track listing is as follows:
SIDE A
bound by grass
under the pipes of solomon (excerpt)
SIDE B
so many other places
mirrored hall

Each cassette is $10, plus $2 for shipping to US & Canada, $4 for shipping internationally. To purchase the tape, e-mail me at hugeancestor@gmail.com to inquire about availability. Purchases will then be made through Paypal.

Thanks be.

KEUE YEO, a preview



Here is your first preview of one of the tracks off of my album Keue Yeo, which I am releasing as a limited-run of 50 cassettes. More information will be available soon. (I'm duplicating no. 22/50 as I type.)

Please be kind enough to listen/watch with headphones or decent speakers, as much of the song is completely lost through computer speakers. Much obliged to ye.

I DID NOT WORRY

...then, any more than I do now, about the little apprehensive "spirituality" milieu, or about the opinions of those perpetually frightened people who see refuge in a cheap junk nirvana in an effort to avoid facing the monstrosities of life, the daily panic dimension...It was not a question of staging a nice little show whose audacity would be applauded in trendy reviews, but to question myself completely. I wanted to expose myself: to put life, death, madness, wisdom in a game and to undertake a kind of ritual sacrifice.
