Woohoo! Premiere of “Sunset Hangover” music video starring water warrior David Braun & fly girls Callie Gleason & Rebecca Nuss.
Once settled in LA, which was deep drought at the time, I wrote “Sunset Hangover.” After growing up in lush, upstate NY and Miami, the absence of water hit me harder than expected. I was conflicted about the need for wheels after walking everywhere in NYC. This music video was shot in Santa Ynez, CA, where I live now. It features my anti-fracking, water warrior friend, David Braun who I met in 2011 after watching the HBO documentary, GASLAND.

I had the pleasure of recording some live drums for this album with my friend Steve Kefalas. Check it out!
AL1CE just released a new video for a song that I mixed for them last year. Check it out!
I’m extremely proud to have worked with these fine musicians to bring Österlanden to life. Thank you. Österlanden is being mixed now.
Around June or July in 1996 Justin and I started I, Parasite. We met via a classified ad I placed in a local NYC newspaper. A couple of years and a few demos later we put out our first album, Turin. Six “proper” releases and twenty years after that, I’m mixing the fourth full length I, Parasite album, Österlanden. A lot has changed since those early days. I, Parasite sounds like a completely different band, and I am a rather different person. The project has accumulated a lot of baggage, and I just don’t quite feel the same connection to it (or the name) anymore.
So I’m excited and also a bit sad to announce that Österlanden will be the final I, Parasite album. But Österlanden also marks a new beginning for me. I’m really proud of this record, and would like to live in this place for quite a while longer. I also hope that you will enjoy it and stick with me as I continue in that direction under a new name. There will be more about this and other future musical projects once Österlanden is complete and out in the world.
I know working with me is often not an easy thing, so I would like to thank all of the people who have played with, guided, and/or contributed to I, Parasite over the years:
Justin Butts, Mike Ferguson, Henry Kohler, Tom Harris, Michael Alexander, Michael Morel, Ray Cicero, Bret Calder, Bilian Frost, Michael Weeks, Ron Schecher, Lars Hansen, Colin McKay, Mike Renfield, Alan Nino-Castro, Brandon Hodges, Scott Landes, Tash Cox, Emily Joy, Steve Kefalas, Rob Caggiano, Melyssa Anishnabie, Paul Komoda, and Shikhee.
And thank all of you for supporting me all these years! Here’s to more music in 2017 and beyond.
BENEATH THE FLOOR – unreleased tracks and remixes from On This Cold Floor – is now available for pre-order and will be released on December 13, 2016. Features four new OTCF-era tracks, plus four remixes by Entropy, The Wretch, Tim Schuldt, and Occultechnologies. http://music.iparasite.net/album/beneath-the-floor
The drums were recorded by me, and performed by Steve Kefalas.
Los Angeles is a place you find yourself, lose yourself and forget everything else. For Vanessa Bley it was the turning point for the rhythm of her music. Watch how her City of Dream serves as a source of inspiration for a new sound.
Last weekend the band Alice and I began recording their second full length album.
