Hello ! Cryptacize has been so quiet lately. I suppose it's safe to say we're taking a break. So I wanted to give any interested parties a lil' update. Chris is writing stuff for his solo project, The Curtains. He's on tour right now drumming with White Magic in Europe. He's also been recording and playing a bit with Cass McCombs. I am also writing a solo record which I'm going to record with the incredible Kenny Gilmore (he plays keyboard and guitar in Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti) in March. I'm super excited! Just returned from 2 months of singing with Sufjan Stevens. So fun. What else. I'm thinking of starting a love advice column..maybe in the form of a blog. If anyone has any ideas send them over! Hope everyone has a thrilling holiday season and see you in '11 xoxoxo Nedelle
