"Snowburden” is my alternative take on a Christmas song, a twisted soundtrack to sit awkwardly beneath your mistletoe.  A combination of soundscapes, falling decorations, industrial noise, and hazy memories of Christmasses  that drift in and out of view but finally come into focus on the things that really matter - friends, family, love, and human connection, all of which are things that feel very poignant this year.
For the “Snowburden" release, I wanted to make something handmade and personal.  It's been a tough year for so many and I wanted to make something that has been created with love and would make people smile. The “Snowburden" CD is totally handmade.  Every single CD has a handwritten tracklist on the back cover, which is also signed. I also made a “Snowburden" fanzine to accompany the CD, which has the lyrics written out, sketches, thoughts, a polaroid by my friend Tom, and an unreleased poem.
There are only 100 CDs and 50 fanzines.
Everyone who buys the CD will also get a Christmas card.  I was struggling with a "festive Christmas message" for the front of my handstamped card..."next year will be better" seemed like the right message of hope to put out into the world right now...which is also why I decided to put it on some t-shirts and a mug. 
I hope it will bring a smile to people's faces.
