originally released as a 70 book + audio on fet press (out of print)

hellified irie, at it’s core, is a ‘surf’ record both in tone and concept. continuing ideas laid out in timecode beach (digitalis recordings), there is a focus on change and adaptation. one minute you’re riding a wave and the next you’re bobbing, waiting for the next set with your mind wandering to who knows where and when. as adults, we often do not have the luxury of embracing that drift.

the style and sound of the recording is a homage to the guitar-centric bands of the mid 60’s such as the ventures and the challengers as well as compositional techniques found in smile-era beach boys material, which lends itself nicely to that theme of changing gears. like a wallace stevens poem, it’s a meditative and philosophical sound. a sonic discourse from a deckchair that skates a line between imagination and the reality of every day.

the 70 page book contains found images and personal photos (taken with a disposable camera that fell into a pool,) as well as musings on the recording process, the concept of home, the weather of the mind, and family.
