Another first timer on Just not Normal we are proud to present is Jonathan Ewald from Madison Wisconsin US better known under his artistname Litmus0001. There may not be as many releases to his name but those that are are sublime. Tending more towards the ambient rather then the experimental these three tracks have specifically been chosen to feature on Just not Normal. During 2009 Jonathan presented a podcast/mix show on the Notheen radiostation called ‘Psychosonic aether’ which ran for 21 episodes. All his releases are free releases and he is a fervent appreciator and supporter of the creative commons world.

Improvised and recorded in a single take on March 7th, 2010 at Worthless Research Laboratories in Madison, WI.
6 string bass; electric guitar; percussion; AM radio; effects; loops and delays
