about

On Chasing Away The Dots, Coykendall is joined by a star-studded cast of special guests, including M Ward, Zooey Deschanel, Ben Gibbard, Eric Earley (Blitzen Trapper), Rob Burger (Iron and Wine, Tin Hat), Scott McPherson (Elliot Smith, Beck) , and a long list from Portland's rich musical community.

The sounds contained within the grooves of Chasing Away The Dots range from earnest to irreverent, wistful to scorching, direct to oblique, always with an underpinning of subtle psychedelia. The mood lifts and falls while Coykendall's distinctly American voice casually narrates the whole affair. Lyrically, the album takes on universal subjects such as loss, love, alienation, separation, longing, aging, infatuation, kindness, and other human conditions. These themes emerge, filtered through the eyes and ears of someone who has been around long enough to live through it, and return, several times over - a man who knows that the sun will rise, and so will the moon.

The record is available on, and a limited edition lp pressing, featuring a download card with an expanded double-length record (including 11 extra tracks).
