2013: New Studio New ProjectsMay 16th, 2013
I’ve been writing a sci-fi novel called Blood Bag. I hope to finish it this year and record an audio book with a double soundtrack. This is the studio I’ll be composing/recording in.
The Battle on Pop Matters and OPB Music:January 25th, 2013
This LP is clearly destined to become a minor-key classic in some circles, and cement its creator’s reputation as a summit-peaking act of a great deal of distinction and importance.

The Battle tends to be as intense as its title might indicate, Ragel’s layered production— including vintage samples and Afrobeat-inspired horn lines— set against a theme of good vs. evil.

The Battle CD release party at Burnside Brewing was fabulous! Thanks to everyone who came out. Catching up with media:
- “The Battle” is currently #9 on OPBmusic.org’s top 20, between Mumford & Sons and Cat Power. Thanks for the spins, OPBmusic!
- The Deli Mag PDX had a spiffy show preview HERE
- via Portland Mercury: “I, William Your Ex-Lover” is an irresistible song with an addictive hook, whose crowd samples and carnival bloops are tethered by fuzzy, muscular guitars and marching-band style drums.
