Macro Songonomics

Macro Songonomics

The new album, Macro Songonomics, is now out in "limited edition. We are now accepting callers for these pendant key chains. It is useless to resist. To resist it, is useless."

Some are going out by hand, precious few by mail. The details are all below, read it and weep Meghan McCain, you can't make a playlist like this! But please do keep making playlists...inferior as they may be to mine.

Macro is a team (Mason + Crow = Macro) and everything was done as a team except song selection which was mostly done by me throughout the year. Sarah got in to the process once the album started to materialize with prototypes and image concepts and was a great collaborator and partner from there. All pictures were taken at Masonwood studios on my trusty Sony digital camera. Dixie and Jasper appear courtesy of H-pack and their likenesses may not be used for any purposes that do not further the needs of dogs unless specifically authorized on a case by case basis.

I hope you enjoy the album and the near misses. You may hear that Wayne Hancock song on future albums; I wanted to stay up-beat this year since last year's album was kind of a drag.
