joshua abrams' natural information continues to receive super-positive notices in the press.  read ben ratliff's 19 september new york times "playlist" review & brian morton's review in the october issue of the wire


michael lucio sternbach, a friend dating back to the halcyon days of eremite's amherst unitarian meetinghouse concert series, directed a cool profile of peter brötzmann that includes live footage & an interview with pb from the early 2000s.  see it here

apparently rahsaan roland kirk requested that after death his ashes be mixed with the finest gage & smoked by his friends. here's another inspired option for when the album that is life finally reaches the end.


scope the glowing early reviews of joshua abrams new eremite l/p natural information. calls it "easily one of the best records 2010 will see."  to mark the occasion of NI's release eremite is massively discounting its last two premium vinyl releases, sunny murray's big chief & solidarity unit inc's red black & green.  buy these dudes for $17.50 rather than $25, now.  available at this special price for one week only.


eremite is delighted to see that two weeks out from its release date joshua abrams natural information tops the week's charts at CKUT in montreal, confirming yet again the city & the station's good taste.   abrams will play montreal's venerable casa del popolo october 27 on a natural information tour of the northeast, complete tour schedule to be posted soon.   thanks montreal, & see you again in "the future." 

producing small edition specialist l/ps to quality-freak standards doesn't make for meaningful promo budgets.  all the same eremite loves to hear from radio stations & programmers.  send your cool playlists & i will do my best to work with you.
