Making merch is one of the most fun things I ever do; nothing beats seeing something you made on a T-shirt of a random passer-by.
These coffee cups have been in our shop for a little while, but I got new samples sent just now and boy, are they looking good. Go get yours! The photos feature my wonderful Korg Volca Bass as well as my chalkboard full of the secret plans.
I just did a really fun interview with the swedish mag The Absorbe, complete with a big mixtape! The mix was recorded (in one take) in my apartment in Bergen, featuring Catty the cat amongst other stars. I put in lots of fun tracks from the local Bergen scene as well as some weird stuff, like the “water theme” from Super Mario on Nintendo 64. If you want more, there’s a bunch more music at the music section.

Seems the clearest way for me to implement my ideas is simply making them into merch. The continuing battle of inclusiveness and diversity in club culture is worthy of a helluva lot more than a cup. But then again, how else would you let your cupboard know where you stand on political issues? Next time you invite a date in for coffee, you can let them know you are WOKE AF with every sip.
And this way, I’m putting my mind-fingers on you both when dancing in the wee hours of the night, as well as for breakfast the next morning. I’m turning this creepy without even trying.
I just released two new songs, “Number Eight Forgets His Medication” and the B-side, “A Small Opening Behind Cell Block D”. Check them out! Links to everything below the video. Here’s something from the press release:
Lysgaard’s doesn’t explain what the titles “Number Eight Forgets His Medication” and “A Small Opening Behind Cell Block D” really means, but if his previous work is anything to go by, we are moving through an absurdist version of Detroit Techno territory. The release follows up this summer’s vinyl release of “Assemble EP”, which sold out on Juno records in two days. Thankfully, digital doesn’t sell out that easily. The cover art is supplied by the eclectic Belgian/Spanish illustrator Gabri Molist, featuring a short comic based on the two songs.
I’m trying a new spin on this Black Friday-rubbish. From now until November 27th, come spend some of that mortal coil on my goods and services, and I’ll send the money over to Unicef instead of lining my own pockets for once. Ho ho ho.
