"Wow...It’s as though Karl Alverez and Bill Stevenson, the rhythm section of the Descendents and ALL, joined Weezer and started covering Frank Zappa tunes....the sheer audacity of this combination of influences is some serious fun." - The Deli

"Bitches, embrace it.'" - Michael Marotta, The Boston Phoenix

"The drummer was playing so hard, that one of his symbols repeatedly fell off of his drum set...psychedelic, experimental rock....bizarre, poppy sound." - Allston Pudding

"Musical outlaws that seem to detach from any category one tries to put them in... A cop out answer might be "Sonic Youth, produced by Steve Albini at Fort Thunder", but I sure won't say that." WUML 91.3 Lowell

"Just eccentric enough to shine..." - The Noise Boston

"A trio of epic proportions, full of raw energy and vocal harmonies. For your own sake, please check them out. You will not be let down." - Nice Bass Productions

ABADABAD is dangerous, tape relic'd, guitar rock from a land of perpetual summers of dreamy ladies. These moments and dreams happen somewhere in Brooklyn, NY.

When I moved to Boston in 2006, I started listening to NPR on a regular basis and was introduced to This American Life. Since then, when I'm in my car about the town, I'm on an NPR station (WBUR or WGBH); when I'm on tour or long trips, This American Life keeps me company. While I love the news and stories, I'm always especially clued into the music; as a lifelong sound sponge and musician of nearly 20 years, it's hard not to be. Bugging my film producer cousin to use my work or hire me, he suggested I just take something I like and score it in the meantime. Since whenever I'm listening to This American Life I always think, "Damn, my music would sound great here," I decided to take Jordan's advice and score This American Life.

Traveling through years of This American Life episodes and literally hundreds of pieces I've written over the years, I spent months matching melodies to memories. The result is, "Maybe it's better if you hear this in a British accent," the opening line of one of the pieces. Taking clips from stories such as "Switched at Birth," and "Thugs," to one about a duck falling in love with a rock, the process was at all points a dream-like collaboration between me and my favorite radio show
