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!!
