Beginning in March 2020, HILOBROW friend Mark Ramos Nishita (aka Money Mark) helped lift our spirits during the COVID lockdown by posting dozens of ingenious and funky “isolation jams” to his Instagram account. With Mark’s permission, over the next few weeks we will present a curated selection of this series. Click on each installment’s date to watch the video!

Isolation Jams number 43… ‘Sometimes You Gotta Make It Alone’ 1995. This second verse excerpt is from my album ‘Mark’s Keyboard Repair’ and also appears on the Napoleon Dynamite soundtrack but another acoustic piano version from the Peel Studios appears on a special UK EP. This might be the ultimate/original isolation jam. These recordings are in the cue to be re-issued through @lightintheatticrecords starting 2021. This IG post is raw w zero effects. Using my rare Yamaha PF10.
