Music

Solo music

Music I’ve released under my own name can be heard at austinstahl.net. Home-recorded tunes, much of it made on a cassette 8-track, with me playing everything.

My most recent solo recording is Austerity,1 an album of short instrumental pieces, made from repetitive rhythms and interlocking melodies.

Bands

Reforester (2018–): New thing, in which I drum and sing. First single out now!

Small Sur (2007–): Spare, lovely folk tunes penned by my friend Bob Keal. I’ve played drums and toured all over and helped record several albums, the most recent of which is Labor.2

Mink Hollow (2012–2015): I was one of four singers/writers in this band. Two of my favorite songs of mine are on the Ghostwriting EP,3 including the title track.

Private Eleanor (2001–2007): My indie-pop band and main preoccupation in the ’00s. Lots of music and stuff to dig into at privateeleanor.com.

‘Poor Repainting Attempts’

tumblr_​osozt9jFPR1wu4x6oo1_​1280

I maintain an occasionally-updated photo blog for something I affectionately call Poor Repainting Attempts: little blips on the urban landscape where someone has not quite matched the right paint color. I harbor an odd fascination with these little anomalies—evidence of the layered, complicated nature of cities, and of people’s inevitably futile attempts to fix them up as best they can.
