I am back and finally situated after some wacky winter months. In this post I got some pics from my trip to Peru, alongside some highlights and tips you might find useful. Its taken me sometime to get my pics together and to be able to communicate the effect that Peru had on me. Take a look inside and I'll share my journey with you...
I am happy to announce that Lampshades are now available to the public! You can find the new music on my Soundcloud page. The whole collection is also available for download through my Bandcamp Page. These works were primarily composed and recorded during a 10 day period in the Aabaco Bahamas this past April. All songs were composed, recorded, and/or sequenced using various iPhone and iPad apps, and then were edited and mixed in Logic Pro. It was intended to be an experiment but I thought some of the stuff came out pretty cool. I figured I'd share some of my favorite pieces that came out of this process, and allow my friends and fans to download it to their iPhones, iPads, or whatever mobile contraption you happen to use. I hope you enjoy, and if it you guys like it we can start talking about Lampshades v2.0.
Anyone else feeling the Election Day blues? Maybe it's because you know your guy isn't going to win, or maybe you just realized that our whole political landscape has bullshit for soil and Drano for fertilizer. Personally I believe it's important for every American to vote if at all possible, but we have to keep it in perspective. We need to realize we're not voting to elect a person that actually has any say in our country's policies. Whether you are concerned about our economy, our foreign policy, or serious social issues you have to remember that voting on the president won't change any of that.
Lampshades have arrived!! Well, not all of them, but they will be making their way onto various websites in the next week. Tracks 1 and 2 are up on my soundcloud page. The tracks are only available to my soundcloud followers, but since I'm a nice guy you can enjoy these private links: Lamshpade v0.8.4 and Kaos Lampshade. Please enjoy yourself while listening, and make sure not to sit near any sharp objects. Check back for followups in the coming days.
If you’ve listened to Circa Survive before the first thing you’ll notice on Violent Waves is they’re drawn out approach to writing this record. The album starts off with a 7:30 epic titled “Birth of the Economic Hit Man.” A social commentary you might say? Maybe, but I’m not one to dwell on song meanings and lyrics because too often there are many correct interpretations.
