Progmetalhero What casn I say, this is Michael Gagen. Incessant creativity and always sure to poke the right spot of my sentimentality. Favorite track: as the flames of revolution lick at the walls of our throats.

about

'days in the sun' is the sixth studio agrammeofsoma record, low-fidelity, dark and hopeful. It was recorded to tape.

Assembled from loops, love, spare parts, and a strong distrust of silence, it's one entire live take at 3:00am to 3:55am on a cold Brisbane morning. For $10 you can have a very limited, hand numbered copy on analogue cassette tape + a high resolution digital download. The download only copy is free, as always.

Here's to our days in the sun, here's to dead media, here's to the Yankees, here's to Hemingway, and here's to quiet peace and pale light. Love to you all.

released November 17, 2015

Written, performed, recorded, mixed and mastered by Michael Gagen. All sounds made by one guitar, one loop pedal, one computer and one take. And a few different picks.

Sample on "...flames..." is an abridged version of Glenn Greenwald's 2013 Hong Kong interview with Edward Snowden for the Guardian.
