(vs. Krzysztof) Appalachia
The latest offering from our man in Asheville is actually a split EP between potpie and his robot double Krzysztof. Each contributes a single long track inspired by bluegrass music.

potpie's approach is to take dozens of tiny loops of actual bluegrass recordings and layer them into a hypnotic avant-grass jam. Then Krzysztof uses a sine wave generator to create what sounds like a robot hoedown! Both tracks were recorded live, no computers.

As with all potpie's releases this is a super-limited edition of 50, hand-made and -numbered by the artist.

Waterline
His most critically acclaimed release to date (and quickest to sell out), Waterline is the latest self-produced recording by New Orleans minimalist potpie. Recorded post-Katrina, Waterline showcases potpie’s trademark ultra-minimal drones followed by cathartic free jams with potpie raging on a dozen instruments including bullhorn, psychedelic guitar freakouts, sine wave generators and much more.

Black Panther Coloring Book
This is a stark recording of basically a single sine wave slowly rising in frequency while being run through a lot of delay, the interference frequencies create all kinds of overtones and really gives a feeling of tension. You should do a google search on the title, very interesting!

armed with a turntable, delay pedal and a 4-track, potpie deconstructs Jimi into often unrecognizable sound. Genius? hardly.. but I'm sure it will freak out some old stoners.
