Ask me anything
Empty Disco is Riley, from Raleigh, North Carolina. They wield the ukelele, as well as a few other instruments, and write songs with lyricism better than I’d ever hope to write. They can be found playing shows on the east coast, putting out zines through Do Yr Dishes Distro, and studying smart person science stuff.
"ffdew" is being put out on cassette tape via Swet Records, very soon.. but in the meantime, pick up a copy of the Empty Disco Mixtape, full of ukelele love songs and Riley’s past favorites.

a lot of people talk like capitalism is necessary to have innovation and I just think of all the brilliant and creative people I know who spend all of their time and energy worrying about how they’re going to have a roof over their heads and food to eat. capitalism doesn’t drive innovation, it stifles it and shackles it to the endlessly wasteful machinery of exploitation.
there shouldnt be any such thing as a ‘starving artist’
