ALIAS KID TWIST

Tyler Keith’s new solo record peels off the line like that primer grey ’55 Chevy from Two Lane Blacktop. It’s gritty and raw and muscled up, punk country noir at its goddamn best. Preorder/support here.

Oxford pals: Tyler Keith and the Apostles play tonight at Proud Larry’s with NERVS opening. Come on out. Here’s the Facebook event page.

And here’s Tyler’s Outsiders song, which also appears on The End of All Music’s great Record Store Day cassette comp.


Dancing With Myself

I did a Dancing With Myself interview for Nigel Bird’s Sea Minor blog. Thanks, Nigel!

Really excited to find this great review of Gravesend at The Big Click by Nick Mamatas. Somehow missed it when it posted back in May. My favorite line: “The gunplay is an afterthought; what a more lurid novel would make a climax, Boyle passes over in a sentence, because the main character in this novel isn’t Ray Boy or Conway, but working-class immigrant Brooklyn itself.” Thanks, Nick!

I also love this review of Lazy Fascist Review #1 (which features a story of mine called “In the Neighborhood”) by Brian A. Ellis. “Bathroom reading for smart weirdos,” that’s fucking great.
