Cosmic Child released today!

At long last my spaced out synthastic love song Cosmic Child is available! Check it out on YouTube, or stream and download from Bandcamp.

Moisture Farm now streaming!

My new single Moisture Farm is now streaming on YouTube and Bandcamp! You can also download the track on Bandcamp. It is the hottest summer jam on Tatooine, about a young moisture farmer looking up at twin sunsets and dreaming of the wider universe.

Duck Duck Scissors


Duck Duck Scissors delivers Armando-style improv inspired by the real-life stories, songs, and stylings of Seattle’s most endearing and amazing artists. With just a touch of bullshit for good measure. Comedians, singers, dancers, clowns, and anyone in between take the stage to regale you with real tales from their life inspired by suggestions from you. Then Duck Duck Scissors performs fast and furious improv inspired by those stories.

This month features the jaw-dropping Jesse Mercury performing future-techno-scifi songs to amaze!

He’s a cosmic entity flung out of time from the year 3000 who has become Seattle’s favorite Synthpop Superstar and Scifi Podcast Host. He sends musical love waves into the universe to signal help from the timestream to get himself back home at shows like Tiny Baby Talk Show, Super Famous, and The Johnny Unicorn Jam Unit. Now he’ll face his greatest challenge yet: Duck Duck Scissors.

Featuring –
Improvisers: Cory Guebels, Zak Nelson, Randy Cleveland.
Special Guest Monologist: Jesse Murcury

Steampunk trains! Steampunk rifles! Steampunk ice makers! Viggo Mortensen’s penis!

Your future isn’t written yet, except for the part where you fall in love with this glorious episode.
