The IN THE NO trilogy is complete!

So I’m terrible at maintaining this website. Oops. I am, however, really fucking good at making and releasing music. Case in point: These 24 songs I spent half a year working on (alongside many songs I didn’t finish) are now all out there for the world to hear. These songs make up the bulk of […]

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 […]

20. 2021 Fast

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) […]
