Two important events occurred during the making of White Is Relic/Irrealis Mood. I became "Simulated Reality" paranoid and I fell in LOVE.
Well a lot more happened during the process of writing and recording, but those are the two big ones. I also reached a healthy point of self-forgiveness for my failed marriage and became deeply educated in the lies of America the Great.
I feel like a switch was recently turned on in my brain and now I'm beginning to see through the lies that have been fed to me my whole life by the masters of media and by those who control and manipulate the narrative of our cultural identity and social order.

Denver- based Quartet Flaural is a contemporary blend of new wave, shoegaze, and psych pop. The band consists of Singer and bassist Collin Johnson, Guitarist Noah Pfaff, Drummer Nick Berlin, and Multi-instrumentalist Connor Birch. Formed in the early 2015, Flaural employs traditional rock instruments with a modern fare of abstract synth and guitar textures, driving 'kraut-y' drum grooves, and introspective lyrics and vocals.
"Flooding the day with an extra sense of intrigue, distortion and sunshine, the new [Over Imaginary Cigarettes] EP from Denver's Flaural is a brilliantly agile re-imagining of the psych-pop trope, presenting a skewed take on the norm thanks to an inclination, perhaps even a desire, to delve in to lesser-known places." - Gold Flake Paint

Singer, rapper, and writer Dessa has made a career of bucking genres and defying expectations—her résumé as a musician includes performances at Lollapalooza and Glastonbury, co-compositions for 100-voice choir, performances with the Minnesota Orchestra, and a top-200 entry on the Billboard charts for her album Parts of Speech. She contributed to the #1 album The Hamilton Mixtape; her track, "Congratulations," notched over 5 million streams. As a writer, she’s been published by The New York Times Magazine, broadcast by Minnesota Public Radio, published two literary collections of her own, and is set to release her first hardcover collection with Dutton Books in the fall of 2018. She's been covered by Pitchfork, Forbes, and The Wall Street Journal amongst others. The LA Times says Dessa “sounds like no one else.” The Utne Reader calls her a “one-woman powerhouse.” On the stage and on the page, her style is defined by a ferocity, wit, tenderness, and candor. Dessa’s third full-length album Chime (Doomtree Records) was listed by NPR as one of 2018’s most anticipated albums. In March, she embarks on a world tour through the US, Europe, and Asia.
