The Trippy Troubadour
... and for those who have been eagerly awaiting the ...
HOTEL CARPET COFFEE TABLE BOOK
If you follow the Particlekid Instagram account, maybe you have noticed that there is a frequency of posts documenting eclectic hotel carpets.
These carpet patterns have inspired an album of instrumental glow-fi/trip-hop/folk-jazz sound collage music.
Rather than turn the images into a physical coffee table book, Micah and his longtime friend/collaborator David Wexler (Strangeloop) are creating an interactive virtual reality hotel, which will be accessible through a public VR platform called The Wave and will debut the Hotel Carpet pattern music. A digital download of album will be available inside the VR hotel lobby's gift shop.
PARTICLE KID - Hotel Carpet Virtual Reality album COMING SOON on The WaveVR !! Keep your earballz peeled ...
Without saying too much to ruin the air of mystery and anticipation that surrounds Paradox, a Western set in the future past and directed by Darryl Hannah, stars Neil Young and POTR, which includes the inimitable Micah Nelson as ... Particle Kid.
Paradox will Debut at SXSW

I sure had a great time making this album. I've been loving the process and sound of a Tascam cassette 4-track recorder. And its got 12 songs -- (that's 2 more songs than "NEBRASKA"!!!)
I hope these songs bring some joy to a mad mad mad mad world.

As likely as it would be for me to do a whole blog post about how great the classic 1950s film "Harvey" starring Jimmy Stewart is, this here is actually about lending a helping hand to our friends in Texas who have recently become climate refugees from the powerful hurricane known as Harvey. This is a message I would like to share from the National Hemp Association:
Our hearts go out to all those impacted by Hurricane Harvey and the resulting devastating flooding.
Shelters are in need of supplies, food, and water, but would rather get monetary donations to purchase what is needed. This site has all the links to the various groups helping those affected by Harvey.
Please consider helping if you can!
