Clumsy Hands


Composed through improvisation, Clumsy Hands was recorded in autumn of 2020 and marked a return to multi-tracking rock tunes solo. A goal of Clumsy Hands was strict anti-perfectionism, leaving most tunes with a single take for each instrument.

This release is about re-establishing a relationship with music using a new methodology. The first three tracks were recorded to serve as score for a few hobby videos. Each were tracked against a rough edit of their respective video starting with drums, then filling out with bass and guitars.

Clumsy Hands is a leaning into the wrinkles, the scabs, and the tangle in defiance of ironed and distilled structure.
