An important message from Celeste (bottom right) of The Goldberg Sisters (a website so current it’s missing nearly all the videos and any mention of the last album). 
Hello fair readers, lookers, and browsers all - 
It has come to our attention….well, my attention, as Adam is too busy “editing” his movie (if in fact that’s what’s going on behind that closed door) — that there has been a negligible uptick in merch and CDs sales from our Shoppe recently. I can only attribute this to an also negligible,  and no doubt ephemeral,  uptick in exposure Adam has received concurrently due to that Fargo soap he played in. While it pleases me that “our” music might be gaining more exposure, let me be perfectly clear: If Adam wants to prance about waving a gun and recycling that tired scowl, it is all very well with me, but I have little interest in trading on such banalities, if even it shifts the spotlight in the general direction of familial justice. 
Indeed I would like to thank those of you who have recently patronized our humble Shoppe,  and invite you to it if you’ve never been. The first record we made, under the LANDy moniker (I HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THAT AFFRONT TO TYPOGRAPHY) was recently digitally reissued under The Goldberg Sisters moniker, but you can still find the original album at our store. Unlike Stranger’s Morning, for which “Adam” played all the instruments, the LANDy record features some wonderful guests, including Steven Drozd (and even Wayne briefly in a choir section) of The Flaming Lips. Okay, this is getting unseemly, this hawking of wares. But Adam is at a birthday party of some old friend of ours, well, of his, by appearances — and if we don’t make a little scratch, and right quick, there won’t be a 4th record to produce this year, most of which I’ve already written. 
Well, adieu, for some long while I imagine, as he’ll be changing the password once this posts.

herein, a bunch of scratches, partial songs, demos in training, made during last stint in calgary filming the television programme, Fargo — save for 3 tracks made one day in new york, but during the same weeks of said stint.   employed were  too many alternative tunings, loop pedal riffs, and/or capo-ed chords for me to likely ever recall what i was  playing. so there may not be a future for many of these— which may be a good thing. 

per-cussion: because i never will get these 3 minutes back nor should you.

one of my favorites from Ben’s  current series of photos Boswelling the production of a new record. Featuring the Framus 12 string—a bitch to tune, uncomfortable to play, often rather dissonant, but darn good lookin’.
