OUR PURAM is out now! It’s the second record from Pfarmers, a collaborative trio of Danny Seim (Menomena), Bryan Devendorf (The National), and me. The record is a concept album about the Rajneeshpuram community, briefly incorporated as a city in the 1980s, which was populated with followers of the spiritual teacher Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, later known as Osho. Danny’s lyrics are written from the point of view of a Rajneeshee leaving the compound.
The album is released on Joyful Noise Recordings in digital and vinyl formats – limited to a one-time pressing of 500 hand-numbered copies on pink vinyl in letterpressed jackets.
Thanks for Listening!
