Jesse Stiles - The Target Museum - Out Now!


The Target Museum

12" Picture Disc
Edition of 250

Jesse Stiles' long awaited debut is here on approximately 250 slabs of crazy looking vinyl. Many of the songs on this record were written while Jesse worked wearing a hazmat suit inside one of the partially destroyed buildings surrounding the ground zero site. They capture that hallucination of contradictory images and turn them into catchy and unique electronic pop masterpieces.
