Mirror Mode - Veils EP

So here it is, the debut ep from my new group Mirror Mode. I've been playing out and working on this material for the past few months with my bandmate / close friend Dan Wakefield. I feel really proud of this release, so it would mean a lot to check it out! This is just the start of this project, and we have a lot of ideas, so I'll be posting about this frequently! I have to give major props to Matt & Elise from Featureless Ghost. Elise did the artwork, and Matt helped us with mixing and did the mastering. Check out their music too: (Featureless Ghost, elise's tumblr) . And big thanks to David and Drew from Double Phantom for their infinite support. here's our links, check it out!




Kolossi - The Chase

Back in the spring, my old band Roman Photos disbanded. Since then, some of us reconvened to make the spiritual successor to Roman Photos, and thus Kolossi was born. Right now it is currently just a recording project, as I am focusing more on developing Mirror Mode as a live band, but things may (and probably will) change down the line. I think this release is one of the strongest things I have been a part of thus far. Take a listen and enjoy. More updates on Kolossi as they develop. Download the ep for free from double phantom digital.



So Dan Wakefield (Ominous Castle) and I have been playing out for the past few months as Feast of Violet. It started out as Dan helping me out, playing my songs, but the project has grown into a fully collaborative group. So, we've decided to change our name, and I'm going to keep Feast of Violet as the name for my own recordings.

So, here's MIRROR MODE

We have one last show booked as Feast of Violet, on this Sunday (10/16) at the Earl with Still Corners & Lucy Dreams. Then after that, we'll make the full switch over, release some more recordings, and play our next show as Mirror Mode with Memoryhouse & Factory North at 529 on 11/1.

I'm also going to try and be more active on this as the "all things allen taylor" blog. Lots of developments coming up soon.
