The fifth and final release for 2010 is a four-way split on cassette with Kid Primitive Family, Sweet Baby BBQ, Paul Smith, and Sagan Victoria Stier. These Bloomington, IN natives contributed spliced sound collages made from ambient field recordings, thrift store tape cuts, noisy keyboard drones, stolen radio bits, and more. This 60 minute tape is possibly the most interesting release of the year. The Prim Family contribution is a 10 minute piece called "Tour Lifestyle" It consists of field recordings that I did in 2009 while on tour for a year. I recorded 30-second 4-track songs outside, anywhere that I found myself in strange acoustics or with a droning air conditioner, etc. I skewed the songs, cut em up a bit, re-orientated their sounds and sweetened them with a bit of delay and reverb. The cove is a double sided collage made from magazines and art that I found as we moved out of our Chicago apartment.Released: 06/2010 (50 hand dubbed cassettes with hand cut art)

On the Prim side you will find ten tracks that have never been heard before. It's a nice mix of instrumental beats, live recordings, remixes, covers, and other weirdness, including a few tracks from the aborted concept album entitled "The Way." On the Oak side you will find a "Sunday Afternoon in Normanoak's Kitchen." These eleven tracks range from new songs, spontaneous kitchen improvisation, strange chant sounds, and even a kid's song or two. Tapes and cases painted in hand cut Runes, created by Lindsay.
Released: 02/2010 (46 hand painted tapes and cases)

 2010, Perpetual Motion/Graymalkin,

This album was created as a tribute to Castle Oldchair’s “Newborn Slime” album. I was so enchanted by that record and its complete outsider weirdness that I had to create a sister album for it. I spent eight days at Lindsays moms house in rural Indiana recording these eight songs. Each track was created in the spirit of its sister track on Newborn Slime. I think of these albums like a Yin/Yang pair. White Light focuses on the transcendental experience and the ecstasy of ascension. It sounds like strange voices from another dimension moving freely as they Will in the light of creation.
Released: 01/2010 (100 Split cd's with Castle Oldchair’s “Newborn Slime”)

 2008, Perpetual Motion,

While on spiritual work-retreat in upstate New York, I recorded this five song solo record. Picking up where the Prim Fam Split left off, I started working with the voice in a new way. I started making rhythmic loops with my voice and then singing over it. The song structures are completely removed from the pop format, creating something really different than I’ve done before. I wrote all these songs as magickal spells and also incorporated energy healing techniques I was learning at the time so produce some powerful music.
Released: 11/2008 (20 cd’s with hand silk screened sleeves)

 2008, Perpetual Motion,

After returning from Europe, inspired, we spent the winter in Chicago and recorded this. This was our first experiment with all-vocal songs. We recorded these three songs and asked our friends Castle and Lisa to do a split with us. They were delighted. They recorded three songs and we painted the cases and then sent them the them to finish. Eventually it all came together so make this unique creation. Our side is all vocals; layered, delayed and droned. Their side is a mix of weird vocals, bass and guitar. All very experimental and pretty weird. We released it as Prim Family split because Castle and Lisa wanted to go under the name Prim Family also, extending the Family to double it’s size and giving us a way to do a split with ourselves.
Released: 4/2008 (100 cd’s in individually hand painted cases.)

By the time that Cinnabar Fields was released, those songs were old news. I was already onto a new batch of songs. These tracks were made in a basement in Bloomington, Indiana. Some of the songs are hip hop and some are starting to move us in a new direction that is more atmospheric, droney, and experimental. This whole tape has a dark mood to it. One track blends into the next creating a cohesive experience that I really like. Lots of droned out singing, whispering, and rapping too. We put this out a few weeks before we left the country for Europe.
Released: 5/2007 (100 hand dubbed, finger printed cassette tapes. Art drawn by Lisa K Fett)

 2007, Perpetual Motion,

This is what really started Kid Primitive Family. I spent a year making this, all over the country. The production is based in New York City and Muncie, Indiana. The stories are based in New York, California, Connecticut, Indiana, and in between. I wanted to make a hip hop album and I wanted to make it a little weird. I based most of the songs around jazzy bass lines and funk drum samples. There is also some live instrumentation and some noise. Samples, re-samples, and edits. Then right when I finished it, I met Lindsay, got married and made her part of the group. So we went back and remixed the whole record, adding her voice on most of the songs.
Released: 3/2007 (1000 cd copies in hand cut/folded/sewn cases)
