Here & Elsewhere is a loose assortment of singers and players, originally gathered together in Orange County, CA, including Emily, Nick, Ken, Mark, Travis, Mary (in spirit), Chris A. (in spirit), and Dan. All music was/is recorded on an 8 track Korg D888 Digital Recording Studio, in hallways and on headphones.

‎Composer Daniel McClure has said For the last few months I’ve been working on a soundtrack for a movie set in Mississippi, and the directors asked for open-tuned slide/dobro/drone blues (no strumming acoustic – which is my comfort zone). At the same time, I finally bought Carruthers’ Playing the Bass with Three Left Hands, which led me to do a deep chronological study of Spacemen 3 (go through LPs, singles, live stuff (thanks to all who put those incredible live downloads up!) – including a re-read of the 2004 book). As I was going through the Spacemen 3 catalog and playing dobro/slide/drone music for the soundtrack, I got an itch to record some songs (the Velvets/Stooges/Spacemen 3 lineage really makes you want to play music). The style that usually works for me (and my voice) is acoustic drone with a fluttering background. For side project, see Lazy Fair.


Recorded in May 2020.
Released June 4th 2020
