Flapp (The 2016 Fuck US Politics Version)

I updated the “classic” track from The Somnambulating Schematic of the Obstreperous in honour of our current election debacle.

Enjoy!

Paint by Numbers

Originally released in 2008 under the moniker A’damn, this was my first exploration into creating an album of pop music. Most people who knew me thought of me as an electronic music DJ, so when I released an album of grebo inspired alternative pop music, they were taken aback.

In some ways, the album is unfinished. I record it in Logic between 2003 and 2006, but after I upgraded computers, Logic no longer ran on my setup. I eventually bounced the stems and tracks down at a friend’s studio and considered the album finished.

The release of the album caused a bit of friction between myself and some friends and has since taken on a bit of a mythical status in some circles. At some point I might try remastering this, but that might also be effort. So…

ENJOY!

Premonition

I made a DJ mix to ring in the new year.
It’s called Premonition.

Mourning Glory

MourningGlory

I spent the day in Salem yesterday and was directed to a local park for my lunch eating needs. When I entered the park, I noticed this statue and the comical sign posted behind it (click on the picture to zoom in). At the base of the statue was a plaque with info about the horse. It was a boring plaque, so I wrote my own story about it…

The Somnambulating Schematic of the Obstreperous

Hello,
Last summer I released my second full length album of original music.
I have coined the genre “Nu-Grebo” as it is highly influenced by the great Grebo movement of the late 80s and early 90s.

The project is called Fried Kale (gratuitously borrowed from this very site) and the album is titled The Somnambulating Schematic of the Obstreperous.

The album was mastered by Amina at her Foxdye Studios
and artwork was designed by Erik Arteaga at his Arteaga Bodega

I’ve posted a link to the Bandcamp page below, so please take a listen and hopefully you’ll hear something that you enjoy.

Cheers!

Pardon the Dust

I am transitioning some content and making things more interesting.

Pardon the dust…

Music now Included!

I wanted to freshen up this blog and breathe some new life into it.

Lately, my writings have been on paper or left unpublished, but I also have been writing music for many years and thought that I would bring the two together. 

I have a new album coming out this summer that I’ll post here and I’ll be posting my old album and some music written by old bandmates and friends as well. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Yellow Heart Balloon

I’m quite tired right now, but now isn’t really the time for sleep. I can do that when back at Sean’s. It’ll be peaceful. Charge the phone and sleep. Hopefully do some laundry too. That would be nice.

Gavin Goes Swimming

“Huh? Sorry. I was spacing out. What was that?” Gavin quietly asked and then took another drink from his beer.
