Brownswood Bubblers Ten // Contact Field Orchestra

July 29, 2013

Contact Field Orchestra is next up in our round up of the artists featuring on the 10th edition of Brownswood Bubblers. An associate of Kutmah, who previously contributed to our Worldwide Family series, here he tells us a bit about himself and his music.

Released on August the 19th, the new Bubblers will feature the typical eclectic mix that those of you familiar with Brownswood will be used to. Pre-order it from:

Bandcamp / iTunes / Bleep / Juno / Amazon / Boomkat

Check the teaser for the album below:

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself please. Who are you, where are you from etc.?

Damon Aaron. I’m from Altadena, CA– in the foothills of the San Gabriel mountains.
I guess I’m probably most known as a singer/songwriter. CFO is the first instrumental project I’ve put out.

How would you describe your music?

My man Kutmah said it best, “like Tom Waits and Augustus Pablo smoking opium on the bayou”.

Where do you draw your inspiration from?

Transducers, thrift stores, old trains, broken toys and long hikes.

Whom do you count amongst your most significant influences when it comes to production?

Lee Scratch Perry, Bones Howe, RZA, Joe Boyd, Jim O’Rourke, Nick Gold, Harry Partch, Moses Asch.

What releases / gigs are out there or coming soon?

Contact Field Orchestra Vol. I is due out September 3 from Hit+Run.
CFO is excited to be playing July 31st with Hiatus Kaiyote at the Lift in Los Angeles.

Do you have a current DJ mix or any tracks that are available for free download right now that we could point folks to?

Part of the mixtape cassette we released with Hit+Run last year is available on the soundclouds:

What are you going to do after this interview?

Turn on the field recorder and try to get a better recording of these wild parrots in the persimmon tree out back.
