about

The title of this record was inspired by our circumstance. Please Advise is a liminal work. A document of a time of uncertainty and fragmentation.

I'm proud of this record, but it's not perfect. I will go one step further: I'm proud of this record because it's not perfect.

All I wanna do is keep moving. Please Advise meets this criterion. For me, at least.

I hope people find it valuable.

We named our record PLEASE ADVISE after producer Teo Macero’s famous 1969 memo to Columbia Records about Miles Davis (“Miles just called and said he wants this album to be titled BITCHES BREW. Please advise.”) It’s darkly funny to us now, but I bet it wasn’t funny to Teo then.

I find that memo to be encouraging. Even in working with an artist as brilliant and masterful as Miles Davis, there were moments of uncertainty and maybe even panic. Like “What is this motherfucker doing?” panic.

There's probably no aesthetic connection between Miles Davis and Beauty Pill, but that memo makes me feel better about my own path. It’s okay if sometimes I don’t know what I’m doing. It’s okay if sometimes you don’t know what I’m doing either.

The paradox of any artist’s life is you need to cultivate confidence AND humility to survive.

But you know what? That’s the paradox of your life too.

Thanks for listening.

Track Name: Pardon Our Dust
i live in my own heart, matt damon
everywhere like such as and
any answer is correct

photovoltaic hut
please pardon our dust
there are so few reasons left

my only strength is
i never understand you
and i’m not gonna learn
barely an exhalation

please stop asking
please stop asking
i am willing to burn

been hanging out with confirmed kills
some i assume are good people
but are we getting their best?

soon i’m gonna die without letting you know
you won’t believe
what happens next

i don’t know what
you’ve been breathing
and i don’t wanna learn
yes i am a hologram

please stop asking
please stop asking
i am starting to burn

i live in my own heart, matt damon
please stop asking
