The Tao of Con was a short-lived dream-pop project by Boston, MA based, Conor Maier. I had originally discovered this track on Bandcamp when I had came across his 2011 release, Memory EP. It was later featured on my Best of 2011 playlist at BIRP.fm and has always been one of my favorite discoveries since starting the blog in 2009. I’m very pleased to share this with you guys as our last release of the year! Although The Tao of Con came and went, Conor has stayed busy with various other projects and bands. You can hear more of his work here:
The wonderful artwork for this release was done by Gabriella Trujillo. Who has also done work for NPR, WHYY, The Free Library of Philadelphia, Whole Foods Market, The Kempe Foundation, authors, musicians, filmmakers, beermakers, food makers, and more. You can see more of her work here.
