Leaders and Followers

Wednesday, January 30th, 2013

It’s been a little quiet on the site lately but that’s only due to being quite busy in the physical world. More time making music=less screen time=new directions!
Awhile back the talented/hard working comedian/musician James Nghiem of Robot Saves City asked me to do a cover of one of the songs off the Clerks soundtrack for his Clerks remake project. I chose the cool Bad Religion song “Leaders and Followers” and I started out trying to do some what of a typical electronic cover of the song but I was never really happy with the direction it was going, so I instead made this more experimental version. Check it out and the other covers here:

Luscious Skin Ventriloquist

Monday, May 14th, 2012

We’ve got a new Alchemist tape out tomorrow. It’s by my good friend Kyle Comb’s project Luscious Skin which he’s formed with the very talented songwriter and vocalist Rhys Ziemba. They’ve concocted a very fresh sound that draws from their various influences of Tropicalia, Afro Pop and the like, but mutates it into something new. Here’s the title track to whet your whistle. Pick up a copy of the cassette and stream the album here.

Here’s another track for the Ghosts of Bush project. Not sure when it was done but probably sometime around ’06-’07.

Monster Mashup Party (For Acid Trip)

Monday, September 5th, 2011

Here’s the third installment in the ongoing Ghosts of Bush series. Not sure on much about this one but I think it was just a one take, one synth kind of improv jam. Especially not sure about the title, but that’s what the file was called so I’m sticking with it.

Modern Weather

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

Earthquake on the east coast got you down? Hottest Summer ever got you thinking apocalyptic 2012 thoughts? Well don’t fight it, ride with it. The second track for my periodical album Ghosts of Bush is here for you and it’s a foreboding slow jam that’ll get you in the right head space to enjoy your slide into Armageddon. It’s called Modern Weather and speaks for itself. It’s also from the White Noise era but was a bit too dark and weird to fit.

New Frederick Riche EP

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

Awhile back I posted Belgian dude Frederick Riche’s video of distorted punk left field electronic jam “pink wolf”. Now Mr. Riche is back with a new EP of arpeggiated synth lines and more of his distorted and unique vocalisations. You can download the whole thing here. This track is probably my fav. from the batch.

Atlantic At Pacific Seasons ep

Saturday, February 12th, 2011

Austin Wood of Atlantic At Pacific has a new free ep you should check out. It’s a shinier, brighter and more hi-fi sounding evolution of the A@P sound. It bears some resemblance to his Alchemist debut of last year but it’s definitely an evolutionary step.
There are lot’s of cats out there making similar kinds of tracks but what encouraged me to invite Austin to put out something with Alchemist was his very adept sense of what makes for a engaging composition. On this new ep he takes this to the next level by refining his sound/production into a more restrained and architecturally coherent form. Where “Weddings” was a virtual grab bag of styles held together by a common ambient fm synth heart, “Seasons” is much more focused on slow bumping minimal beats and grooves. Gone is the deep tape sound of Weddings but the chill definitely remains, despite the higher fidelity. There is also a more organic feel to these tracks especially the happy child- like bells, clocks and bass tones. In short this is a nice little ride that, given the generous lack of a price tag, is well worth the taking. Clocking in at a little more than 11 minutes, my only complaint is that there is not enough of it. As prolific as Austin is I’m sure he will remedy this soon.

Blackbird Blackbird – Xmasstime (feat. Atlantic At Pacific)

Friday, December 24th, 2010

Seems like everybody has a holiday song this year but leave it to some of this year’s most chill and talented dudes to come up with a nice little jam like this. Blackbird Blackbird has made some of my favorite tunes of the year and he happens to be pals with Alchemist artist Atlantic At Pacific. Their Beatles sampling collaboration is like a Marvel Team Up of beatsmiths!

BAnanas Symphony HOlidaze

Thursday, December 9th, 2010

2010 has been a good year for the collective label that I’m a part of. We have some great new artist that have come on board like Atlantic At Pacific, Illus Ocean, Local Winds and now we have a late but great addition to the crew: BAnanas Symphony. As a debut/introduction we’ve got a radical free holiday song from the dude. Check it out and pass it along. The gurgling liquid in the beginning is where he adds some Real to the idea of the holiday classic. I designed the cover using some experimental holiday light photos that I took awhile back.
