so I just put out the first single from my debut album!
it’s called “Corn Syrup”. listen here.
sound-wise, it shows what i’ve been up to with my own music the last couple of years… just trying to make rock music that does new things. inspired by metal, hip-hop, psychedelic stuff, atmospheric stuff, electronic stuff.
writing-wise, it’s about the very 2019-2020 feeling of considering the wider state of culture, society, and your place in it, and finding yourself totally numb to the incontrovertible fact that everything’s a mess.
it goes a lot of places, and the whole thing’s kind of a lot; it’s certainly not intended as background music.
i hope you’re into it. the album version is a couple minutes longer.
the lyric video i stitched together for “corn syrup” explores similar themes to the song, through flight and space imagery.
well, i guess i was lying… my album was not done in july.
thankfully, it is now!
fantasy is a rock album with 14 songs; it does not include any of the singles i released in the last year or so, which come from prior unreleased albums.
i’m guessing i’ll release fantasy at some point early next year. hopefully sooner than later! i swear it’s some next-level stuff– that’s the only reason i’m putting it out– and i sincerely hope you’ll enjoy it.
7/11/2019: i suppose here’s the best place to announce it, so i’ll say it: i’m basically finished with this album i’ve been working on! ‘basically’ means that i’m still tinkering with the tracklisting, messing with the mastering and whatnot. but it’s pretty much done and i’m proud of this thing! dang! my debut album is called fantasy and i have no idea when it will be out there… i’ll probably release some singles soon.
