- 100% SILK
Thursday, December 15, 2011
100% Silk are out in force to remix Peaking Lights' adored '936' LP. One of the year's most nattered about names, Ital refits 'Marshmellow Yellow' with a struttin' Mr. Soft groove, all spongy bass bumps and refracted melody, while Xander Harris views 'Birds Of Paradise' as a sludgy piece of Balearic baroque with spy-eyed arpeggios. Best of all is Innergaze's baggy acid re-tweak of 'Shines For U', full of lip-smacking MDMA charm, and Cuticle make a welcome return to the label with the seeping, sideways Chicago revision of 'Tiger Eyes'. Perfectly trippy.

Here's a mix I did inspired by my friend Angeliska in honor of the theme she chose for her monthly dark party, Exquisite Corpse. Exquisite Corpse is on the first Thursday of every month at Swan Dive here in Austin, TX. If you live here in Austin, please come out and celebrate all things weird, dark, and dada. The theme for Exquisite Corpse held last night was Teen Goth and it was truly a lot of fun. Check this awesome post from Angeliska for her musings on the subject. Be sure to check out the rest of her site for her amazing poetry, great photos, and dark, fun wit. The ever wonderful Devaki Knowles (and finance/ collaborator with Xander Harris) was there to capture the event with her amazing photography at Swan Dive, a place where I moonlight behind the bar from time to time for extra cash.

Urban Gothic received the honor of being #50 on Fact Magazine's top 50 releases of 2011. You can check that out here
This year has been magical and insane. 2011 is a year that I will never forget. I've made new amazing friendships, got engaged, released some music, and played some awesome shows. Thanks to everyone for coming out to the shows, buying the music and supporting me. There are a bunch of things that are on the horizon for Xander Harris for December and the great 2012 cataclysm. Cassettes, 45s, remixes, 12 inches, mini discs, USB keys, you name it, it'll have some sort of synth jam on it, hopefully. Hopefully there will be more shows, more tours, and more fun. I have a show coming up in Dallas on the 17TH of December with sonic outlaws Eyes, Wings, & Many Other Things that will be free and fun. There are more shows coming up in the future and hopefully there will be some jamming at SXSW this year.

Altered Esthetics used my song "When The Hammer Starts To Swing" in a trailer for their upcoming event titled "Fear Itself". Artists confront phobias ranging from the creepy, crawly, or things that go bump in the night, to the terrifying anticipation of social situations or life events. Super stoked!

Rose Quartz gave my remix for Holy Strays some serious love today. I greatly, greatly appreciate it.
As far as what's going on with me these days new music wise? I'm working on a bunch of stuff and I'm getting married!!! Life is amazing and thanks to everyone out there who supports what I do. I couldn't do it without you.
