A Little Inspiration

Currently, I am realizing new material; granting myself the rest of the month/year for it all to cool-off and congeal before I fling it at ya.

This next set (a/k/a "album") will have Mellotron (well, M-Tron Pro, since I haven't the means nor the space for such a piece of furniture) on each song. Total 'tronicity!

For an exhaustive listing of recordings on which Mellotron has been used, pay a visit to Planet Mellotron.

Upheaval in Digital Distribution of My Music by Me

Today I discovered that the distributor by which I have been propagating my music by me on Spitofy, iTunes and Amazon (among others) had been making systematic mistakes in which venues the titles were distributed. So, whatever music might be there now shouldn't be there much longer – but should re-appear there in early 2015, through another distributor. Meanwhile, and ever always, there is Bandcamp, which I find preferable for my purposes and is a lot cheaper for you anyway.

From the Inner Mind to . . .

Confession: Until this year, I had never seen an episode of the TV series The Outer Limits that first ran, oh, 50 years ago. I had been aware of it, but unlike its contempary sci-fi/mystery series The Twilight Zone, it had never been re-run (to my knowledge) anywhere I've lived. For that reason, I had presumed that it couldn't have been as good as The Twilight Zone, which is established iconically in popular culture. Now, however, many of the Outer Limits' episodes can be viewed at the Internet Archive site, from where they can also be downloaded in "DVD-rip" quality – likely ripped from the commercially-available DVD box-set itself.

Replenished Listening

Now, more stuff in the Listen section: four compilations (hosted via Bandcamp); below them, an updated Soundcloud widget with almost three hours of more songs, one-third of which are new additions. Between the streams on that page and those in other places on this site, you have here more than enough music at your disposal to listen to all day at work. Mix it up with some Ariana Grande, and your co-workers will show you more "respect."

Another Compilation: Taking It Out (Elements 2010–2014)

Here's another compilation for ya: Taking It Out (Elements 2010–2014), 23 selected drones, atmospheres and other audio bits that I've used in production of my music by me over from 2010 into this year, totaling 50 minutes of decontextualized oddities. Expressly for anyone interested in gaining insight into my creative process over the past few years. Some might find many of these bits "listenable" on their own; they were intended to be effective as parts of mixes or arrangements of songs.

Stream it all and buy it on Bandcamp.
The CD is available here.

Persistence of Memorrhea Compilation Available

Persistence of Memorrhea, a new My Music by Me Music sampler compilation, is now available for download on Bandcamp. It comprises 13 songs by Colin Ambulance, Dicklyn Fut, Kleinabermein, Japanese Mother–Son Movie, and Me.

The CD edition (with bonus trackage and an arty package) is available here. I'll also have it streaming on Spitofy, since Taylor Swift's cleared some space for me there.

Price Abatement on Bandcamp

One of my interests of online research is the penultimately despotic regime of the DPRK. Mine is a decidedly-disapporoving ponerological fascination with this 25-million-member dysfunctional family. Although it might seem egregious enough to us in the ideological "West," it is among the least of the horrors of North Korean government to forbid its citizens access to the world-wide Internet. Ironically, reading about everyday atrocities committed in the DPRK's gulags on websites that have in their sidebars filled with links to infotainment articles about celebrity sideboobs and other things considered newsworthy in the USA should prod one into considering the folly of our mindless affluence, the luxury of conscienceless living in a "free" capitalist society, rather than in an harshly-impoverished, stringently-regimented, brutally-indoctrinated quasi-Stalinist society. Contrast video footage of American "Black Friday" situations and their ruthlessly competitive, violently avaricious bloodlust-for-stuff with this video of an opening of a super-mall in North Korea, in which citizens wander about the place as though through a museum, curiously pointing at and eyeing from a distance the items on display (and perhaps for display only), not knowing what to make of them, without it ever occurring to them to buy the stuff – nor even to want the stuff – thanks to chronically barely being able to keep themselves fed. In terms of privation and austerity in the DPRK, that's just the foam on the latte (as it were – and there probably isn't anywhere to get a latte in North Korea).

Doing This Available As Download and As CD

My 10-song collection Doing This is now available for download on Bandcamp. The CD edition is available here.

These songs (either spoken or sung – though in my case, same thing) were first composed as lyrics, then realized with music, with "minimal" and "mood" as guidewords. The results are succinct stabs at punching holes in the Ether.

This album's Non-Verbal Mixes version is likewise available for download.

White People Have My Brain Hooked-Up to a Machine (and They're Trying to Steal My Music and My Sound) D/L & CD

White People Have My Brain Hooked-Up to a Machine is available for download on Bandcamp here.

Its companion set, . . . and They're Trying to Steal My Music and My Sound, is likewise available – here.

Both are on one CD,
which adds a bonus track.

Report from Austin, Texas

"I'm sick of this 'live music' imperative in this town. It's like porn: I go to a coffee shop, and there's a porn video playing on big-screen TV? I'm at the farmer's market on Sunday morning, and there's a live sex show in the middle of it? I go have dinner with someone at a pizza restaurant, and someone gets up on stage and reads Letters to Penthouse over a microphone so loudly that it competes with my conversation? I had my window open this past weekend, and I should have heard 20,000 people screwing all the way from Zilker Park? No. Same should go for 'live' music. Canned music, even. I can enjoy that at home, too – when I'm in the mood for it."

The 2nd EP by Japanese Mother/Son Movie

The first set by Japanese Mother/Son Movie, released in April of last year, was a kick in the pants (but whether in the back or in the front is subjective); people have been either amused or disturbed by it. The vocals of non-human origin might have had something to do with that. In the meantime, though JM/SM had yielded only one brief set, I haven't regarded it as a step-child.

Even so, it had been a while, so I had to say, "Dudes, gimme another, or I'll have to take your name off the masthead." We got to work, and squirted-out six tracks. Again, non-human vocals, though one track also features humans either speaking (in English) or vocalizing animalistically. For my purposes, this set was sufficiently as similar and different; it may be easier or more difficult to listen to.

So: Madonna by Japanese Mother/Son Movie is available for download on Bandcamp. The CD can be purchased via the link there, or directly here.

Dogo: Noise for the Sake Thereof

New trick-baby in the MMBMM family: Dogo by Stevitch. Some noise dudes in the Ukraine wanted to hijack my cred, so I told 'em to let me put their stuff out or I'd hire someone via the Unternet to take care of 'em.

Aw, just funnin'ya – I'd done this stuff in July and didn't know whether I liked it that much. A couple months later, I find that it beats the sounds of my A/C and 'fridge together, so I'm making it available for download on Bandcamp. Enter "0" for the price so that you won't feel ripped-off; just don't bug me for a refund on your time. 67 minutes of required endurance. The CD is available here.

Dedicated to Casper : then / now

Disorientation Guide

So, a bit of instruction on how to navigate this joint, for new visitors to this site:

Listen & Buy has linked sampler-players of my releases by me, embedded from respective Bandcamp pages. 
Listen More has Bandcamp players of two compilations of songs, plus a player of songs hosted on Soundcloud (in total, over four hours of listening, so I hope you didn't make plans for this evening). 
Kleinabermein is like the Listen & Buy and Listen More sections, but for Kleinabermein, which is inexplicable art-noise or whatever. 
Others lists releases by, well, "others," with embedded/linked Bandcamp sampler players for those releases. 
Chimpunk showcases releases by which I invented a new sub-genre of raucous rocky-poo. 
Links has a list of things to help you misunderstand me better.
The Sidebar, to the right, prominently features everything else you need to know.

The Fabric of the Fantasy Now As CD & Download

My new album by me, The Fabric of the Fantasy, is now available for download on Bandcamp and as a CD. 

I personally like this one very much. Pretty good. Not bad. Doesn't suck. Best one in a while, frankly.

Listen to the sampler medley via the Bandcamp link or in the Listen & Buy section.

Lyubov iTunes-Only Compilation on CD and Bandcamp

About 50 albums/EPs by me are for sale on iTunes and on Amazon MP3. However, since you're reading this, you're hip enough go to Bandcamp to download My Music by Me.

Since not all of my albums are up on iTunes, I wanted to represent some "refererential" tracks from the missing ones (which will available for download on Bandcamp, and in CD format). So, I re-mastered 10 songs and instrumentals from the non-iTunes albums and compiled them under the title Любовь (Lyubov). This compilation is available on iTunes here – but is also available on Bandcamp, and on CD, because I find that amusingly ironic, and iTunes' 30% cut of sales is motherfathering criminal.

Bad Songs by Dicklyn Fut: CD and Download

Bad Songs by Dicklyn Fut – five songs plus two alternate mixes - is now available on CD and for download on Bandcamp.

This EP differs from the previous one by starting off mellower but proceeding with folk-punk songs with even cruder lyrics, one of which is perhaps the most blasphemous song ever recorded. Suckle a bit of sauce from the faucet on Bancamp.

Two CD-Only Compilations Now Available

Scraping-Out the Can to Pad the Resume is a CD-only release, since the accompanying artwork is too fabtastic to despoil with text, and I like the gimmick of having to insert the disc into iTunes to see what the tracks' titles are.

Composed of instrumental mixes and elemental pieces employed in the mixes of some songs. Some of these are contemporaneous with other outtakes I've released previously, but overlooked in that process.
20 tracks @ 47 minutes.

Purchase the CD here
Zusammenstellung (erweiterte Auflage) is a CD-only expanded edition of the Kleinabermein compilation, with revised artwork. 23 tracks, comprising representative tracks from all of the Kleinabermein albums.

Purchase the CD hier.

You can, alternately, download the 17-track compilation on Bandcamp for $5 – or pay considerably more for it on iTunes.

The Blues in Red

Last weekend, I watched Fatherland, a 1986 film about a dissident songwriter in East Berlin who is "officially obliged" to go to West Berlin (and, by ideological extension, to the indefinite "West") to pursue his singing/songwriting career. The problem is, however, that he remains, by nature, clear-eyed and critical, and not given to keeping his opinions on the down-low just because they might be unpopular by cutting through the crap with which everyone else goes along in order to get along. If the film had contented itself with the message of how capitalism stifles authentic artistic expression, however, it would have made a succinct and powerful statement – but it over-reached its own aim by exploiting this premise as a pretext for becoming yet another story of rooting-out an elderly Nazi war criminal living incognito. Nevertheless, its proper point was well-made, as indicated in the succession of subtitled screencaps presented after the jump.

Re-Wind Re-Mix/Re-Arrangement Album Now on CD

Now available on CD is Re-Wind, a collection of 10 songs with new mixes or new arrangements taken from the albums released over the past year's time. These versions may or may not be "improvements;" they are primarily intended to be significantly different. Buy the CD here or find it on the CD Editions page.

Re-Wind is also available for download (FLAC, MP3, whatever) on Bandcamp.

The CD edition includes a 23-minute "bonus" re-mix of a song from the album My Beautiful World

Thursday, July 3, 2014

My Dream of Your Dream of My Dream of You : Available

Another one to throw onto the pile! My Dream of Your Dream of My Dream of You has nine selections @ 30 minutes-and-change, for a glimmering example of brevity's being the soul of wit: seven songs plus two non-filler "soundscape" things. The CD features a bonus 15-minute "remash" thingy.

The idea behind this set of songs was to use no guitar (for the first time in almost three years) and to render tehm as my idea of "electropop." Not exactly Black Cherry, but convincing enough for a guy who's too punk-rock for Hollywood.

Listen & download FLAC/MP3/whatever at Bandcamp. CD directly available here and on the CD list site.

Why I am such a jerk by Colin Ambulance

The second EP, Why I am such a jerk, by Colin Ambulance, is now available for any-format download on Bandcamp. For the CD edition, click here.

These new songs are deeper and darker than those of the previous set, and only one of them (the final one; in Italian) is about a girl's butt. The greater attention to production and arrangement – while keeping things swiftly proceeding in order to keep pace with Colin's writing – complements the varied subjects and their tones.

Making Music Your Own "Remash" Now CD or Download

Now available for sale (and streaming) via Bandcamp is Making Music Your Own, a 40-minute montage/remix/remash of performances and sonic elememts realized for the album Exit Plan.

The package design and title are intentional emulations/homages/rip-offs of those of records in the educational series Making Music Your Own published by the Silver Burdett Company in the late 1960s, for the reason that their influence is among the formative causes for my being drawn to, and sucked into, music-making. (Gotta blame somebody.)

The CD edition is available here

Thursday, May 8, 2014

Exit Plan Available as CD and Download

Yup – another to add to the pile. My album Exit Plan is now available on CD, in addition to any-format download via Bandcamp. My publicist commanded me to rock this blurbiage in its favor:

Ten tracks @ 40 minutes: avant-noise, '80s-style electro-pop, '70s-style soft-rock, spoken-wordiness, mean-ass slab-slammin' wrock, enossified clintonic electrofunk, whatever, blablabla . . . The lyrics go so far beyond all that; you have no idea.

Total Spotification

Finally, present for streaming on Spotify are all four compilations: The Octomom of Pop, My Velvet Rut, Mommy Was Pretty (label sampler), and Zusammenstellung (Kleinabermein kompilation).

Xbox users, you can also stream the bejesus outa any of 'em while blowin' stuff up and cuttin' off people's heads. These all are also on off-brand outlets like Deezer, eMusic, and such, in case anyone has really heard of them.

My Velvet Rut: Another Compilation of Stuff by Me

It seemed in order to post another compilation of "my stuff" on Spotify, iTunes, et al., so I culled 20 songs to form My Velvet Rut: Another Compilation of Stuff by Me. Most of the recordings date from the past couple of years; the final two tracks throw allaway back to 2011, when I was still wet behind the cojones.

Presently available for download on Bandcamp, with a bonus track almost 15 minutes in duration.
The CD edition is available via the Bandcamp page.

Full tracklisting and respective provenances here.

Films That I Liked at SXSW 2014

Call me a traitor to my race, but I paid far more attention to the films than to the music during SXSW, this year. I did see a couple films which I didn't like that much, and I even walked-out on one, but in general, the quality of the films screening at SXSW is consistently staggering. Even the films which verge on mediocre have something brilliant about them – a performance, cinematography, an original score – that redeems them as memorable. Bear in mind that there were scores of films that I did not see; it's just impossible to see all the films whose synopses one finds interesting. These are the films, in no particular order, and for varying reasons, which I'd liked enough to recommend (after the jump):

Das letzte Album von Kleinabermein

After having very recently completed the previous Kleinabermein album (see below), I realized that the impetus behind those works had run its course; that there was no more to be found in such "darkness" but more darkness. It no longer became possible to make this sort of "music" with a sense of humor in the mix, and this mode of expression had become self-limiting by virtue of its self-definition.

To pre-emtively gratify any future inclination to do so, and since some "final statement" should be made, I have completed what will be the final Kleinabermein album. It is entitled Himmeloderhoelle – one continuous hour of glacially-paced electrocreep. Probably great for sex on drugs, but so what?

Available as download via Bandcamp; also as CD. If you're going for the download, do so in a lossless format (i.e., FLAC), as encoding to lossy format (i.e., MP3, OGG) will likely result in clipping artefacts due to the heaviness of the low-end frequencies.

New Aptly-Entitled Album by Kleinabermein

The latest album by Kleinabermein is Bullshit. (I love titles which also serve as succinct reviews.) Four tracks at 36 minutes; last of which is 20 minutes in required duration. While resembling the precedents of past works, this album features also human vocals with intelligible language (English, for the masses).

Available as download on Bandcamp; also as CD.

In all candor, this one is hard for me to listen to, so if you're into this sort of thing, it's right up your dark, stinky alley.

Monday, February 24, 2014

Mommy Was Pretty Compilation

The My Music by Me Music label sampler Mommy Was Pretty is available for sale via iTunes. The compilation features Kleinabermein, Colin Ambulance, Dicklyn Fut, Creeps Ahoy!, Blood Turds, Japanese Mother-Son Movie, some guy named Steve Fitch, and some other band, whose name I can't recall at the moment.

But do us both a favor, and download it via Bandcamp. You can also listen to it, and rip crappy, scratchy-sounding low-bitrate streams of the selections instead of enjoying the full-fidelity goodness of the lossless files available for purchase, on that page.

Even better: CD

Non-Man Now Available as CD and Download

Non-Man is now available for download on Bandcamp and as a CD. Eight songs at 25 mintues, plus a 15-minute thingamawhatzit at the end of the CD. Yeah, kinda brief – but what I call "succinct." Sometimes ya just gotta make your point and leave it at that.

Any animal I like or I resemble is welcome for a temporary stay. Hums of my appliances accompany my waking thoughts in lieu of a tender vox humana. Life has missed me; I'm crazy, but not dangerous; I hold back as much as I let fly. I'm a non-man.

Scott M. Phillips (1964-2014)

Scott Phillips by me, October. 2013
Last night I received an e-mail, from a friend in NYC, informing me that our friend Scott Phillips, had died in Washington, DC, last weekend. He would have turned 50 this April. It might seem somehow auspicious or spooky that, since last Saturday, I've had trouble sleeping at night, or that, all week, I'd been "intending" to post something about Scott's musical and cinematic efforts because dude (in living form) needed some mad props to the max (as we used to say back in the '80s), or that I had been perpetually forestalling honoring his request to put an autographed copy of the 12" EP by his band Sarcastic Orgasm on eBay to "test the market" for it. Then again, it might not seem so spooky, amounting to my being a negligent friend too engrossed in his own troubles to properly appreciate a motherfucker. Now, all that's reduced to this.

My Deal with the Devil

I had this dream in which I was standing in line behind a lot of other people, waiting for my turn to be admitted to Hell. The queque advanced slowly, as the Devil, seated at a lectern just outside the entrance, read aloud, from a large book,  an account of each person's personal history in order to justify that person's admission to the Eternal Inferno. When it came my turn, the Devil began to read the history of my life, but fell silent as he read to himself. Seeming almost ashamed, he looked up at me and apoiogized, "Sorry, but you've already been through Hell. Get outa here."

Sunday, January 5, 2014

Okay – yeah, so – like, Dicklyn Fut . . .

Pictures of Her Arms by Dicklyn Fut now has a companion set of "remixes," essentially the same set but different. 

Pictures of Her Arms

Remixes of Her Arms

The two are now available as separate downloads on Bandcamp, and/or on one CD

Sunday, November 24, 2013

Dreizehn by Kleinabermein Available

The thirteenth emission attributed to Kleinabermein is now available for download on Bandcamp – hier.

The 26-miunte piece Dreizehn could have fleshed-out the previous Gott hat gesprochen, whose total running time of 30 minutes might seem scant by the convention of the CD delivery/playback medium, but it stands as unique thematically, aesthetically, and intentionally. Kleinabermein itself is particulary unconcerned with conventions, anyway.

Also available on CD, if you must.

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

It's just one of those times,

when I just can't seem to get any momentum going; no progress seems probable; possibility is a moot point.

I'm not despairing, just rolling around on my back, down here on the floor. All this lolling back-and-forth is really making me hungry, so if you're not gonna help me up onto my feet, at least pop a treat into my mouth so I can keep going and you can keep enjoying the spectacle of my ridiculous predicament.

Now go to my Bandcamp page and buy something.

Das zwölfte Album von Kleinabermein

New Kleinabermein set – three @ 30 – available at Bandcamp, where you can listen to a sampler medley of the three selections, and even puchase the CD edition if you require something tangible for your money.

Fokom (4:15)
Susan Wiley (1:45)
Frauenfeidnlich (24:00)

God is looking out for me.

After having watched Marilyn Manson's video for his song "Long Hard Road out of Hell," the suggestions for other videos to watch came up with other Marilyn Manson videos – except for the inclusion of the video "Top 10 Best Cat Videos of All Time." God must be trying to divert me from the sinister influence of Satanic rock. Hmmm . . . sure is tempting. The cat video, I mean.

My Beautiful World Album Available – CD and Download

My new album by me, My Beautiful World, is now available for download on Bandcamp

Eleven songs at just under 43 minutes.

The Idiot by Me Now on CD Only

In July of last year, I recorded a song from Iggy Pop's 1977 album The Idiot, and then I did another, and another – until it looked like I was re-making the entire album; so I did.

Shortly after having completerd it, I had a very-limited run of CDs made, using in the package design the painting that Iggy imitates on the cover of the album, with the intention of sending copies to him and David Bowie, the authors of the songs. Soon after that, I posted it for download on Bandcamp, but now I have it available on CD at wholesale price - here.

Listen to the sampler medley of the songs below, and read more about this release after the jump.

For the Beethoven Fan I Met Last Night

The Heiligenstadt TestamentA letter written by Beethoven to his brothers Carl and Johann on 6 October 1802 concerning his increasing deafness. An addendum is dated 10 October 1802. It was discovered among his papers after his death and published (in German) in October 1827.

Four Titles Now Available on CD

The following CDs can be found on the off-site CD page, and their download counterparts on the Listen & Buy page, the Kleinabermein page on the Others By Me page: 

Scopophilia (Formerly-Private Mixes 2009–2013) (CD-only) 
Kleinabermein: Passive Authoritarian Subjugation by Active Abuse of Congeniality
Kleinabermein: O Fiende, nicht diese Töne

ADDENDUM, 9 OCT: Nein by Kleinabermein is now available on physical playbback medium.

Sunday, September 22, 2013

A Customer-Service-Oriented Album by Kleinabermein

The eleventh Kleinabermein album, Passive Authoritarian Subjugation by Active Abuse of Congeniality, is now available for download on Bandcamp, and as a CD – here.

I've been shopping at this store for the past 15 years, and I pay for everything I walk out with, and I work for every penny I spend – so if you really want to follow me around, I'm "going to have to" consider it stalking and call the Police.

I love these cute/funny animal videos online.

Call me sappy or wimpy, but the heart-warming effect of animals-being-animals fascinates me for hours, whereas the cynicism of porn leaves me feeling left-out, ripped-off and wishing I could have my time back.

The Oldest-Known Rock Music?

To find the gems, one really has to dig. It's not enough to comb the record bins for hours – ya gotta dive into the dumpsters behind the record stores, bug the guy at the swap meet about what's in that fruit crate in the compartment on the side of his RV, sneak up into your grampa's attic and look under where the decades-old "gentlemen's" magazines are stashed . . .

Well, it looks like I've unearthed a find, and of truly archaeological nature: the only known record by the Ancient-Roman band, Volumus Maximus, entitled Petram et Volumen Tota Nocte, which, according to Google Translate, means, "Rock-n-roll all night." Purportedly recorded circa 30 BC, and engraved on the verso of the very disc depicted on the "cover" image.

The Life by Me

Just released: a seven-song suite entitled The Life.

I don't know what sort of bluriage to use to describe it. Maybe it would appeal to those who prefer Kleinabermein material to just mein.

Buy it, after having listened to the sampler medley, on Bandcamp.

Supplementally, and in its own right, I recommend the documentary film The Pruitt-Igoe Myth.

My Six-Hour Album by Me

Conceptual art, or practical joke? I've rarely perceived a distinction between the two, myself – except for when conceptual art transcends its need to be "explained" in order to be "appreciated," thereby being as self-justifying as any other.

Yes: as six-hour album by me - available by download, of course. Read all about La portée, and buy it, here.

The sources for these pieces were selectively-mixed backing tracks from my Bellybuttonhole album.

Bellybuttonhole Album Now Available

My new album by me, Bellybuttonhole, is now available for download on Bandcamp. The CD edition is here.

Ten songs @ 31 minutes. Five rockers; two slow '80s-style pop songs; an avant-parolitic spoken-wordish thingy; "other."

Guitar is cool, 'cause I'm a boy.

The Octomom of Pop Compilation Now on iTunes, et al.

My autocompilation, The Octomom of Pop: 22 Songs 2009–2012, is available on iTunes, eMusic, Spotify, and somewhere else, circa the end of this month. 

It is presently, and will remain, available on Bandcamp, and you can listen to it in entirety (or in partiality), along with a 30-some song Soundcloud sampling of my progeny, on the Listen More page of this site. Bandcamp price (FLAC, et al.; artwork files): $7.00

Download it from iTunes for $9.99 – why pay less for more?. (Sorry, I can't make the link work, but if you're into iTunes, you can find it.)

This compilation may be somewhat outdated since its release last September, thanks to my unnatural musical fecundity, but I like how it flows – then jars, then soothes, then stuns – and I need a selective "billboard" array for Spotify, whose audience is potentially worldwide and yet which near-criminally don't pay shee-it per play. Likewise but less-so with iTunes and eMusic, where this music's presence should serve to alert the public to a vast motherlode of time-based consumables by me – available at lowest cost due to lowest overhead under my particular auspices.

The streams on Spotify sound like doo-doo, by the way. Abominable. Utter shite. Whatever.

Rock Blockin' EP by Creeps Ahoy!

My inaugural foray into mash-up territory eschews the genre's standard intention to call attention to the songs "referenced" and how cleverly was managed their juxtaposition; the emphasis is on combination of elements. Pop/rock music is recombinant, y'know.

Listen/download here; enter "0" if you don't think you should have to pay for it. CD is $5.99.

The Debutt Release by Colin Ambulance

There is no way I can describe this. You'll just have to hear it for yourself; you should probably just buy the download at Bandcamp – here.

The CD edition is available, via the Bandcamp page.

Sunday, June 30, 2013

Not Fun in the Summertime

When I realized that in creating the albums Fucksgiving, Brown Town and Stellar I had employed a number of "insteresting" para-musical elements, I wanted to create a montage-piece from them, adding maybe only a drum track or two. This resulted inn a 26-minute piece, Fuck Texas – It's 90 Degrees in My Goddamn Apartment!

Buy the download (FLAC, et al.) or CD here.

A Stellar Effort by Me (New Album)

Despite my recent vow to release no new music until September, this album couldn't wait. Stellar consists of 11 songs or whatzits inspired by or drawn from my experiences and impressions during a distinct and distant period of my life – being my years in NYC as rock dude, art maggot and village idiot.

Stellar is now available for download (FLAC and such) on Bandcamp. The CD edition is also available.

Mystery New York Gospel Trio

Bleecker Street between Thompson and Sullivan, an integral recording I made of street performers whom I call the Mystery New York Gospel Trio.

The talented and inspired gentlemen performing these songs lived in homeless shelters and performed regularly on the streets of Manhattan in the era circa 1990. Their singing has inspired me ever since my first encountering them, which is documented in these recordings.

This set is available as a free download, but if you'd prefer this on CD, that is wholesale-priced at $5.99.

"I establish my covenant with you: Never again will all life be cut off by the waters of a flood; never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth."
