County Down is a cross-platform, episodic, digital film exploring an epidemic of psychosis among the adults in a gated community that coincides with a teenage girl’s invention of a designer drug. Mirroring rave culture and the unbridled optimism around technology during the 1990s,

Johanna is one of my favorite people to work with. I don’t usually fangirl about it around her, but I LOVE her band Le Tigre and when I found out last year that we were going to be matched up as writing partners, I definitely fangirled, a lot. Don’t even get me started about how hard it was to contain my excitement at our initial meeting for coffee to talk about working together. We hit it off and have written a few songs together since then. These are two songs we collaborated on that I pulled for me. 

These songs are really different from anything I’ve done. You may remember I posted a free demo of “Arrows” a few months ago. Well, here it is in full now.

I’ve had the verse and the pre-chorus of this song hanging around in my life since I was 15… it was a little recording I had made on my handheld voice recorder but I never knew what I could do with it. As soon as I found out I was working with Johanna for sure, I went through my recorder for ideas, and came across the idea for “Arrows” again. I knew she would be perfect for it, and indeed, she was. “Arrows” is the first song we wrote together.

“Anyway” is a bit lighter and poppier. Johanna had this really awesome track that she was working on but was kind of bored of. She played it for me and I just started singing a bunch of nonsense. We recorded the nonsense and turned that nonsense into words.

Both are super awesome. And you can own them for under 2 dollars. 

Special thanks to Mike Beck for last minute mixing and mastering skills. You are a life saver.

Happy Leap Day. Celebrate with new music.

Kathleen Hanna is a punk feminist icon and was huge influence on my life and still is. Please Help get this documentary funded about her!!!! http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1558491775/the-punk-singer-the-documentary-about-kathleen-han

The Punk Singer - A documentary about KatHan’s life so far has a kickstarter!!!!

And in these times consider how radical it would be to have a voice and a choice about the direction of the economy. Imagine an engine just for you to exercise that voice and flex that choice muscle and really help implement CHANGE for a neighborhood and it’s peoples that promotes health, growth and opportunity.

“The idea of the Pop-Up Co-op came up which would open a shop at 128th Street and St. Nicholas that would sell $1 organic take-out coffee and eventually produce.   Minority youth with no prior work experience will be paid $28.5K a year as a starting salary and will get valuable job skills along with the option of receiving ownership shares for the co-op”

Beastie Boys Ad-Rock,  Artists A.L. Steiner,  Becca Albe and Matt Wolfe, Musician Sia, Le Tigre’s Johanna Fateman (who is also donating her highly coveted pet portriats as a prize at the $250 dollar mark) Musican Kimya Dawson, DJ Designer Imposter, FilmMaker Aurdry Marrs, Legendary punk drummer Molly Newman, and Art word superstar Emily Roysdon, just to name a few, have lent their names along with their donation $’s to back this seriously radical and much needed project. 
Greg Allen who has been an active member of his West Harlem community since 1998 has worked homeless kids or kids otherwise in need of support for more than a decade. If there was a masters degree in “What youth culture needs to propel it’s self into successful adulthood” Greg would hold it. 
So instead of another non-profit systematic band-aid/temporary fix-it, Greg has devised a brilliant plan to implement an actual radical alternative response inside of the small business template, creating a worker owned/cooperative sustainable food market. 
Kathleen Hanna says of the project:
“I think his plan is really radical because it’s about creating a business based on people’s needs rather than a desire for profits.”
What more to say? Please support this with as much money as you can with as little at $10 dollars.
