2016 Intergalactic Pin-up Calendars Now Available

Good news for folks who love keeping time and weird-but-twee things: 2016 Intergalactic Pin-up Calendars are now available!  They feature copies of my hand-drawn artwork portraying 12 hypothetical creatures from beyond our galaxy! Prints are full color on glossy paper with comb binding.

You can currently find them on my Bandcamp merch page or at live shows. I’m currently looking into selling them at local consignment shops as well. If you’d like to sell these in your store, email me at drsomethingmusic “at” gmail “dot” com.

New EP Tomorrow’s Just Fiction Available on Bandcamp, Cassette release 6/12/15

My new EP, Tomorrow’s Just Fiction, is now available on Bandcamp. I’m very proud of how the arrangements and recordings turned out and am very excited to share this with all of you.  It features Mike Chastain on drums and was mastered by Adam Gonsalves at Telegraph Mastering.

There will also be a release show and concurrent cassette release happening on the evening of Friday, June 12, at The Waypost, featuring an audio/visual Dr. Something performance as well as music from Bone & Bell and Youngest of Elders (SF).

Play Fair Video

It’s great to see the video for Play Fair PDX, a group working toward fair pay and labor practices for Portland Parks and Rec workers, getting some press.  The video was produced by my friend Judith Pulman, animated by my friend (and All I Feel Is Yes bandmate) Mike Chastain of Umami Media, and features art by comics artist Hazel Newlevant and my song “Life Inside.”

Videos from the Album Release Show

My friend Jason Ferris was kind enough to record some video at the album release show at The Waypost on 1/3/15. Here are some of his recordings. Also, don’t forget to catch me at The Waypost tomorrow (2/14, aka Valentine’s Day), accompanied by Mike Chastain on drums. I will be sharing the stage with Nikki ‘N’ The Pathos and Bedroom Microphone.

I’m happy to announce that my new album, Puppies Are Nature’s Rainbows, is now available digitally on Bandcamp, and I’ve been hard at work dubbing tapes and making covers and labels for the cassette release and show on January 3rd.
