    Description / Watch

    We are absolutely overjoyed to announce our Artist In Residence for 2019: Thor Harris.

    Thor fully embodies the spirit of our Artist in Residence series. You may know Thor as the percussive polymath extraordinaire behind one of his many projects (Swans, Thor & Friends, Xiu Xiu, Bill Callahan, Amanda Palmer, Shearwater and many others including our own Dumb Numbers and Yonatan Gat's band).

    But if you're unfamiliar with Thor Harris, there is a reason for that. Thor is rarely a leading man... That's just not his style. He's an artistic facilitator - going where he is needed in service to the greater good... He's a musician's musician. And we thought it was time for the dude to get the top-billing-treatment he deserves.

    If you're still not convinced, here is a list of statements about Thor which might influence your decision to sign up for his Artist In Residence:

    - Thor is like a caveman. From the future.

    - He's at once terrifying and the most gentle soul ever... Incredibly empathetic, but he will punch a Nazi without hesitation.

    - He ran for governor of Texas, "cause fuck this"

    - He is one of the most self-aware and agile artists we have ever worked with. He has the musical curiosity of an uncorrupted child.

    - He makes crushingly honest videos about depression.

    - His Twitter handle is @ThorHarris666, but your grandmother would still adore him.

    - He is inclusive to the extreme. As demonstrated by the fact that he spur-of-the-moment-contributed to nearly every track on our 2018 Holiday Sampler.

    - From his home in Austin TX, he works as a plumber and woodworker. He helps to build homes for those in need, while combating runaway gentrification. He is a literal pillar of the Austin community

    - Thor will be personally putting his woodworking skills to use by hand-crafting and screen-printing each of the boxes in this set.

    - Buying this box set makes you a friend to Thor. BEING a friend of Thor is like having a battle champion for life. If a dragon ever tries to get you, he will slay it.
