You may or may not be aware of a thing I started doing a few years ago called the Sad Bastard Music Club. Many of my friends and people I follow on the internets periodically release mixtapes for people to download or listen to. Historically, I’ve done this as well and, being a DJ at… Continue reading Gender parity in the Sad Bastard Music Club
Another RPM is in the books and I thought I’d share some feelings about it. This year I feel like I got in on a technicality. The album that I started at the beginning of the month isn’t done, and 2 of the songs on the CD I mailed to New Hampshire were from the… Continue reading RPM 2017 recap
In true RPM fashion, I’ve changed my mind re: plans for RPM album. It’s not going to be all about Trump. While the thought process going into it is more personal/intimate, what I can say is why I’ve decided to switch gears. In talking with e about the project — because she’s started painting and I… Continue reading Last minute change of RPM plans
I’m in it. I’ve committed to doing RPM again this year. It’s been a couple years since I’ve done RPM which basically means it’s been a couple years since I’ve done any music at all and I can’t handle it, anymore. I need to do something. I hadn’t decided what I was going to do for this… Continue reading RPM 2017
Teh s3quence – Halloween 2015 by Jazzsequence on Mixcloud It’s been a while since I put one of these together so I thought it was time. This year’s Halloween mix collects a bunch of stuff that I could hear being included in a horror movie. Think of it as the soundtrack to the horror movie in my… Continue reading teh s3quence – Halloween 2015
This came in the Noisetrade email today. Garage Blues from Mali that’s pretty freaking incredible. Check it.
It’s the time of year when everyone is making end-of-year lists of various things. I decided to make a list of the top songs I’ve listened to in 2014. Now a few things went into this and there should be some things stated up front. First — I almost always listen to music on random.… Continue reading 30 Most Frequently Played Songs of 2014
A few days ago, my friend Colin (aka Slighter) sent me this link: http://createdigitalmusic.com/2014/01/52-tracks-52-weeks-starting-2014-producers/ It’s a challenge. Like the RPM challenge referenced in the title, Weekly Beats challenges musicians to make music. But unlike RPM, it’s challenging you to do it all year round. I love RPM. I’m still incredibly proud of my 2011 entry, Wasp,… Continue reading Move over RPM
I wasn’t sure if I was going to do this this year, but both my Twitter buds — Colin and Geoff — did Halloween singles this year, so I figured I had to make a mixtape that featured them. This also has some spooky side-projects of Colin’s as well as some other stuff I don’t… Continue reading Halloween 2013 mixtape
Slighter brings us a fiendishly excellent track for Halloween, a zombie-infused breakbeat track called “Outbreak” (get it? there’s a pun in there…). The track opens with a moody sound collage and dark ambient intro that reminds me of old school Skinny Puppy. Check it out and download it now!
