  • Compact Disc (CD)

    Normally, I don't print CDs because it's 2017 and all... But I had these CDs printed in order to ship out to press, and I had a few leftover. Elise Powell did a wonderful job on the artwork. Only a few available, so if you're interested, get one now, before they sell out!

  • Cassette

    Already Dead Tapes was kind enough to press a small batch of cassettes for Tambaleo. They come with a free download card. So if you don't have access to a cassette player you can still listen to the album digitally. With artwork designed by the brilliant Elise Powell, this high quality cassette is a really neat piece of merchandise. A cool keepsake for you, and you'll get that warm almost-sickening glow that accompanies helping out a struggling artist like myself. Seriously... I could use the money. You don't wanna know. It's bleak..

about

PRESS:

"...Squires’ new album transcends simple guy-with-guitar stereotypes... Tambaleo is the artist’s most fully realized work to date."

-Austin Monthly (Full review here: www.austinmonthly.com/AM/January-2017/Whats-New-In-Austin-Music-January-2017/)

*****

"...The record is an auditory biography of skewed pop machinations, the kind that buzz from one second to the next in a series of unrestrained rhythmic revelations...."

-Nooga (Full review here: nooga.com/174554/notes-from-left-of-the-dial-son-of-the-velvet-rat-and-more/)

*****

"...[Squires'] crafted, funny lyrics sung over dynamic and clever arrangements make Tambaleo an album to watch in 2017..."

-KUTX (Full review here: kutx.org/austin-music-minute/mega-rock)


*****

Singles Shape of Your Heart and Debt Song have been warmly featured by The Needledrop, Stereogum, Consequence of Sound, Magnet Magazine, and many others.


****************************************************************************


I was as dry as ground wheat throughout the two years that I wrote and recorded this album. Over this time, I became convinced of (or at least willingly lived under the deluded belief in) two things. First, fermentation is the most fundamental process in the Whole Wide Universe. Second, since my arid inner landscape was not a fertile soil for growing grapes, another, thicker wine began to circulate through my now-silent-and-glowing body. This album is just the document of that profane communion.
