DJ Shadow has been slowly rolling out new music as part of his Shadowsphere tour. He debut two new cuts at Brooklyn Bowl this week, including what sounds to be an AC/DC sampling banger being called “I Gotta Rock,” (previously captured with worse audio quality) as well as a far more mellow untitled piece featuring some gentle piano and light vocal scratching.

Just leaving New Orleans. I tried to take Bourbon last night alone… Did a job or two. Played pool and won with strangers. Requested alot of NIN on The Dungeon’s jukebox and I felt like the city gave a me a police escort. We ate powdered doughnuts in the sun. Me and two Audrey Hepburns, were sung to… Which made me jet for a smoke or two. The show at House of Blues show was awesome. Shadow pulled it out of that old house. Great people here, glad to have shook hands. Next up Atlanta…. omg.

My last diary note was accidently cancelled. The tour with DJ Shadow is going good and swift. We’ve played Vancouver, Seattle, Portland, Vegas, LA , Anahiem and now Albq, NM. so far and i cant wait to get to the East Coast. I dont get out there that often. I’m on tour with the amazing Erica Dee, Evy Jane and Adam Davis as tour manager. A mix of nuts and kind people that im honered to meet. Here are some pics so far. My skin is dry as a bone and heart is broken and strong. Love ya’ll!
