17 Mar 2010, 15:54 by boyinstaticHi everyone,
I started a new project called The Consulate General. It's a set of songs mostly written/recorded after relocating to Gothenburg. It's a solo project with guest collaborators Simon Scott (Slowdive), Antoine Bedard (Montag), John Chao (Misha), and Ryan Fritch (Sole & The Skyrider Band).
The first track "What Time Is It Now" features Montag on backing vocals. You can grab a free MP3 at the official site: www.theconsulategeneral.com There's a blog there too with some stories about the songs.
There's a nice review of the album posted here at herohill.com. The album comes out April 6th on iTunes, on Circle Into Square records. You can also help support me by becoming a fan at The Consulate General Facebook page.
p.s. And don't worry, this is just an additional project - Boy in Static is intact and healthy!

16 Apr 2009, 19:03 by boyinstaticXLR8R asked Boy in Static to put together a guest podcast for them. In going through our iPod's, Kenji and I realized we wanted to make a personal mix of bands that we have met or toured with over the years. And we told a little story about each one.
Among those bands: Mint Julep, Her Space Holiday, Montag, Freezepop, Birds & Batteries, Cars & Trains, 4 bonjour's parties, Future Bible Heroes, Misha, Themselves, Lymbyc Systym, The Notwist, and Helios.
