A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC

Life intervenes--sometimes in gently crushing fashion. We've been away, and yet never been away at all.

New music of our own crouches in the wings, waiting (for spring?) to spring--warped, weathered, and beaten into shape by the surreal world we all find ourselves living in. It's a different animal.

In the meantime, we've been moonlighting with our musical cousins Trade Secrets. (Occasionally one needs to leave home to find it.)

If you missed out, Before We Vanish was released last fall and features The Dossier on two tracks, Broken Instincts and Games. A remix/re-work from us for the second mighty single from the LP, Answers, sees daylight soon (look up). Read a review of the smashing full-length from ReGen.

Stray vocals contributed to the forthcoming The New Division record and a collaboration with an old comrade from Joy Machine lie on deck.

Back to the beginning to arrive at the present. Send in the clowns.

HOW TO DISAPPEAR (BUT NOT COMPLETELY)

A relatively undercover year for The Dossier, as we continued work on our next LP, grappled with the usual existential distractions, and took a deep dive into extracurriculars--writing, recording, remixing, and producing with and for other camps.

Chief of those was the far-flung electronic collective Trade Secrets, with whom we collaborated on the debut single Only You from their Golden Life EP; remixed second single Deaux, featuring French pop chanteur Peka; and co-wrote and performed on the forthcoming track Broken Instincts.

Longstanding comrades The Mystic Underground got a martial rework of their single Those Evil Urges, with other remixes and collaborations in the pipe. Some ill-timed health issues saw us treading the live boards less than we'd have liked, but we shared the stage with the excellent Ghost Cop and Panama Papers.

For the new year we've got singles on the brain--offerings that stand up and announce themselves to us from the gestating LP and answer our overwhelming desire to break ranks and share new material after so much time in the laboratory.

Come play with us across our social accounts and stay up to date: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.

Here's to 2018, new independent music, seeing this inane fool out of office, and the never-ending war of art--see you soon.

It's in my brain now, etc. Back after a little tune-up of the antennae.
