Distant Correspondent - Distant Correspondent

David Obuchowski asked me to try putting drums and bass over a guitar track he had laying around. That track became “Badlands” and was released as a limited edition 7” in the UK. More followed.

David would work in early morning hours when the world was about to rise, tracked late into the night. Our self-titled album was released by Hot Congress and Old Flame Records in the autumn of 2013.

We collaborated with Emily Gray of Meanwhile in Communist Russia and Edith Frost for vocal contributions. The album was produced by David and myself. Emily joined us on a US tour in support of album, with Tyler Wilcox on bass, and Margaret Darling (The Seedy Seeds) on guitars and vocals.
