He Can Jog
He Can Jog is the work of Erik Schoster. Erik and I have known each other for a number of years now after Erik put out my initial 'Tents and Hills' release on his wonderful LuvSound imprint in 2008. His release on David Newman's (Autistici) excellent Audiobulb label, 'Middlemarch' is one of my favourite releases in the last few years by anyone. Erik very kindly created a wonderful reworking with Nick Sanborn for 'Slow Films In Low Light' in 2010. He followed this up with the superb 'Norwood, Wisconsin' on our sister label NKR in 2011. His group Cedar AV (with Nick Sanborn and Nathaniel Zabriskie) will release their debut as a double cd on NKR later in the year on NKR.
Here's a little more information about He Can Jog:
