OUT NOW: Hasra

Hasra was created using only two synthesizers in tandem, with only basic overdubbing and editing. The result is an intimate, yet chaotic meditation on vulnerability, grief and heartbreak — and you can dance to it.

 

OUT NOW: Fandango / Freakin Out

Side “A” is an original tune about smoking drugs and making love
Side “B” is a cover of a song by the band that invented punk rock.

Going back to shows.

It’s been a long time since I’ve toured.

Feb 08, 2021 was the last Dead Register tour date

Feb 28, 2021 was the last Smoochyface tour date

and I played my last R_Garcia solo show on January 20, 2013.

Soooo…. it looks like I’m going to start playing out again — As R_Garcia, as Smoochyface, and with both Dead Register and Surf City Massacre (sometime between now and the end of 2022.) Booking is in progress.

If you want to link up and do a show somewhere in the world, just shoot me an email!

OUT NOW: Yoru

A collection of beats. An homage to the night, playing music, and not working.

OUT NOW: Solum

Definition of solum: the altered layer of soil above the parent material that includes the A and B horizons.

also: A new single from R_Garcia featuring altered smooth funk and soiled ATL trap elements, including the A and B horizons.

OUT NOW: Quinceañera

These are the very first “serious” songs I ever wrote — starting around age 15. I had a fun time trying to reproduce the original demos or arrangements as accurately as possible, while making some *much needed* changes to the lyrics and structures. Anyhoo…Enjoy Smoochyface, circa 1992.
