Why Are There Kids With Masks On Outside?

So I know I said I was going to have my Halloween show, but I need another week or two to prepare. But it IS going to happen.

Here is a little demo I made today while just messing around with some samples. It's called "Escapes." Lyrics below:

You can't escape...
Come back to the black hole...

Meh, I don't know. It's something. Happy Halloween everyone!!

Better Than The Last Update, Hey?

Anyways who ever is reading, as you know I have been recording new material for an album to be called "Culture Shock." For a very long time, it was really hard for me to make music. But when I'm working on CS, I'm overflowed, proud. I think this will definitely show for something...whatever that might be.

SO...around this time last year, the girls and Jer and I tried to through a Halloween show in my garage with no luck. This year, we plan on tackling this problem. None of the girls, Jer or myself even have had to chance to play live. So I'm done the duty of working up a setlist of songs I will be able to play with "bare" equipment. Point is, it'll work...and it'll be badass. Here is my setlist:

01. Smoke Vines
02. Ripped Tape
03. Bedroom Ritual
04. Garbage
05. Phantasma
06. Psychic Sagittarius
07. No Two Stars Alike (Version II)

I'm going to playing this show probably only in front of a handful of people, but I don't mind.

Updateness From The Current That Is Long Overdue

So I'm chilling with Alexis, talking about a show we're going to go to this Saturday with the band and about the next Spiid album, "Culture Shock." Consider it started, day 1, today. Consider it the polar opposite of "Eloise," my nostalgia album. This piece is more focus on the current, present. The effects of living in 100 year old miner's houses, copper ghosts, tourist traps and grey stained glass cathedrals we have all over the place. November release, I started the night with recording a few demos:

01. Ambien Vault Lock
02. You Live In A Brick House
03. Get Bruised
04. Leaf Muse
05. Beef Beats
06. Phonesex (feat. Alexis Pierce)
07. Comic Mischief (feat. Alexis Pierce)
08. The Hour
09. Audible Germs
10. And Repeat, And Repeat, And Repeat

I will be posting more frequently, revealing the titles of each demo I have worked on for this project. When I think I have enough solid material, I'll master the final product and release it.

Peace and chicken grease!!

Virutal 7 Inch #2

Here are two fresh new songs that are the result of my morning. I never thought I'd post another Virtual 7 Inch. Also, I think I got lucky with how well the album art and the songs actually turned out.

Virtual 7 Inch #2
01. Dusted Elation
02. Slap Happy

Haiku Set #1

I know I've posted a poem on here before with promises to post more. This summer, I've been doing quite a bit of reading and writing. Mostly I've just been reading a book of haiku's by Jack Kerouac. I thought I would share a couple of haiku's I've thought of during everyday stream of consciousness.

Camp meditation,
fire and wood burn so for you,
I would burn as well.

Breathe as deeply,
as if you have just run so far,
I have been running.

Recall being young,
sometime in the late night,
and then it fades away.

P.S. I know I said that The Ephemerals album would be the next release, but it seems to be taking longer than expected. I'm positive it's well worth it...or maybe just weird as fuck. Either way, it's going to be an awesome album. I'm also working with the band for another release and doing some smaller, personal Spiid stuff before I release anything too big or whatever.

Peace and chicken grease.

I'm Back!

...Hmm, well it seems every summer so far some unavoidable situation keeps me away from truly crafting certain aspects of my music. Well just like last summer, I've been working up a batch of songs I'll be editing and sharing in the short future. I have to say that a lot of it is Spiid material, but there is some new stuff with the band. And the next release is going to be The Ephemerals album. And probably the last release for the project. But we'll see...

It's so good to have the internet again.

Dogs Are Cool, Deerhunter Cover

Jeremy and I decided to record this about an hour or so ago, it only took us two tries since it is a relatively easy song to cover. Jer was on drums, I sampled the original track and edited it and had it playing during the recording while I sang and played with the effect pedal. Hope you like it because it's just a very small taste of what we have in store.

The Ephemerals album we've been working on for quite some time has picked up speed and we're looking at 12 or 13 tracks so far that Jer and I are pretty comfortable with sharing. It's very...well...I've never done some of this kind of stuff before. It might be a little weird, but I'm sure you'll dig it. It's full of high frequency orgies, "psuedo"-screamo-noise chaos, free-form pedal effect jams, and a lot of awesome, crazy, stoner fun. We've also got new Hooker Vision artist Hostage Pageant featuring in an amazing ear splitting jam.

It's called "Nothing, I Know" and we should have it done real soon.

Overdue For An Update

It's been quite some time since I've posted anything on the blog. Since school is now over and it is officially Summer, I've had a lot more time for recording. The Ephemerals album has kicked off and should be done shortly. The original "artist-collage" concept was killed off due to the lack of contributions.

I've also had time to sketch out the next couple of Spiid works. Untitled, and recorded over the month of May, my next album is a completely different face and style for Spiid. I just can't wait to see what everyone thinks of it.

All of this new stuff will be coming as soon as possible!

Here is my new recorder I bought especially to record the final drafts of the next Spiid album:
