Another new album!

It’s called IT’S A DIFFICULT JOY, BUT IT’S A JOY and it’s the first of 3 in a trilogy I’ve entitled IN THE NO. The 3 albums were recorded as one and weren’t split up until recording was completed. Also, not that anyone asked, but I have plans to do more discography posts to cover […]

Hey Ben what’s the hold-up?

It’s not like any of you read this. Anyway, Hoping For A Little More…Pizzazz will be out on Repeating Cloud on July 22. When that date gets closer, I will write and publish an “era review” for that (and Origin and whatever else may get released before the album drop). This will contain MANY juicy […]

Why no updates in 2022?

In short, it’s because I don’t have anything ready to announce yet. This doesn’t mean nothing’s happening, it just means that it’s not ready to be announced.

21. 2021 Suitcase

This was supposed to be Era 20. The actual Era 20 came out of nowhere. The plan was to put out Wood Anniversary, wait a few months, then drop 100 outtakes on Christmas Eve and call it Suitcase 5 (because Bob Pollard won’t do it, so I will). That aside, I’ll be discussing this in […]

First up is another live show. I think there are three in this block. That’s insane. I went back to my alma mater (TCNJ) for this show. It was a Halloween show, so I wore my old Staples work clothes and played for 15 minutes. It was fun to do it. I certainly didn’t expect […]

19. 2021 Slow

Oh my god this block has 3 albums in it. It was only supposed to have 2 but the autumn just got busy. Speaking of busy, No Victories was my college senior thesis. I put way more effort into this than any other Hello Whirled release before and after this, and it shows. The album […]

18. 2021 GBV

Near the end of 2020, I had this idea to make a Robert Pollard covers album. I’d done one for Wire earlier in the year, and I thought it would be a good way to drum up inspiration. Needless to say, it got way out of hand, and I suddenly found myself trying (and succeeding) […]

17. 2020 Finish Line

I’d call it a stretch to say the burnout just sort of ended. Falling Short Of Heaven is still the product of burnout, it just also had enough bangers to mask it somewhat. These seven songs were recorded for the album but got cut for various reasons. “Play 45” is the second version of that […]
