Zachary Wilson - Slight Return

EGS011: Zachary Wilson - Slight Return EP

Here's a 4-pack of tunes that Zack from Andy & Zeus made in early 2004, shortly after moving back to his home state of Maine from Boston (where I had first met/known him). The death of a laptop in 2006 erased most of his recordings from that period, but he had these songs safely burned onto a CD-r. There are some pretty cool sounds spread across these tracks, with artists like King Crimson, Suicide, Ariel Pink, and even Black Flag popping up in my head while I was listening to this. Zack says he was also "starting to dip my toes into the Detroit techno classics" at the time. It's pretty raw and it kinda sounds like it could have come out now. Which I suppose is why I'm putting it out now.

Track Listing:
1. Surveillance Feed
2. Slight Return/In the Box
3. Expectations
4. Tunnel Vision (edit)

Double Entendre - Found in Cell

EGS010: Double Entendre - Found in Cell

Chances are probably pretty good that you've already heard of Ryan Daniels/Double Entendre via Friendship Bracelet or Altered Zones or something. Or maybe you've heard of him because he has played, both live and on recordings, with Andy & Zeus. Or maybe you've never heard of him. In any event, this 'mysterious' fella is in fact a good friend of mine, and I was honored when he asked me if it was okay to release his EP under the EGS banner. There's not too much to say about this release that hasn't already been said.. it's lush, chill, and ethereal. In other words: right up my alley. Ryan is selling this release on his bandcamp page, so head on over (link below) and buy it. And now that Ryan is officially part of the EGS family, it probably won't be too long before I get him into Electrick Gypsyland to work on new material. To tide you over until then, here's some footage of the one and only show our short lived band, The Wakefuls, played together. Kind of a departure from what most of us are doing now, but enjoyable just the same (I hope).

Track Listing:
1. found in cell

Andy & Zeus - Live in Boston

Andy & Zeus - Live at O'Briens 8/24/10 from Andy & Zeus on Vimeo.

Here's a live video from our show on 8/24/2010 @ O'Briens Pub in Allston. Kris Thompson was kind enough to sit in with us on theremin and synthesizer, and he sounds great.

In other news, I'll be putting up some "new" releases from Universal Monster Series and Leopio, as well as a new chilled out single from Double Awake so check back soon.
