Business

Hey y’all, just wanted to say if we’ve been a bit quiet lately it’s only because we’ve been neck deep in the not so fun side of music. When you do everything yourself that means that all the lovely legalities, press, promotion, booking, and photo shoots need to become priorities eventually also. And when we are not practicing or in the ever-enjoyable creative heat of the moment then we are working to make sure that all other bases are covered. But fear not, the rockin and rollin will ensue very soon. Keep a weary eye out for a couple of unplugged shows around the Bay too.

Listen to Stirring Up the Echoes NOW!

Stirring Up the Echoes is now available in all its glorius and magnificent entirety, which means a tactical strike force attack on your ear drums.  Bounce on over to the music page and give it a listen if you think you can handle the journey.  You’ll fly so high and swoop so low and probably not get this lyrical reference to The Moody Blues so I’ll let it go…sigh.  The poor uncultured youth of the world, go forth and listen.  And if you don’t like The Moody Blues then just know that somewhere I am scowling at you with villainous intent.

As a completely unrelated but totally cool sidenote…

Y’all should really check out Dredg’s new album The Pariah, The Parrot, And The Delusion. We have been and continue to be both inspired and humbled by this local quartets musical and artistic endeavors.  The sonic textures, songwriting, and boundaries these guys like to explore is absolutely mind shattering.  And that damn riff that the kids and Gavin sing at the beginning is way too catchy.

As we continue down our own musical path of awakening it’s always good to be reminded of how crazy and beautiful this damn stuff we stress over, fight for, and lose ourselves in can be.  To some its just sound, to others its noice, and in reality its just vibrations but to some of us these silly little sounding vibrations of noise are the reason we continue these rought acts of inhaling and exhaling, and otherwise just trying to survive.
