Five New Songs

the worst guitar clip art i could find.

I've written five new songs since I finshed the last record. In case you don't know, that's a lot for me. I usually write about fifteen to twenty a year, but more spread out than this.

The new songs are:
The Game Has Changed
Calculated Seasons
Excesses of Waste
Thinning Out the Herd

I'm pretty pleased with all of them. I feel that they're all really strong and I'm definitely moving forward with 4tracker/attacker as a jumping off point. Unlike most of those songs, I'll actually be able to play and sing ALL of these, having written them all on acoustic guitar instead of building them on tape and then writing words over them.

Come over and I'll play them for you.

I love the Gin Blossoms.

Hey Jealousy

Hey, I bet you'd say you don't really like The Gin Blossoms, wouldn't you? Well, you'd be a fucking asshole then. The Gin Blossoms are totally fucking awesome. I love them. Here's a song I recorded on the most classic of lo-fi tape decks. I'm too lazy to run it from cassette into the computer, so I just held my pocket pc over the speaker as I played the tape back and recorded a wave file. It turned out exactly how I wanted it.

The Moon Mission Death Squad rolls joints made of power pop for you to smoke.

Hey, Moon Mission Death Squad fans (yeah, both of you, you fuckers)! moonmissiondeathsquad.com is back in action! I re-registered it for three years. Unfortunately, whatever host I had been using before still has .org and .net locked, but we'll get those back eventually. I chose to forgo the .biz or .info, because those are only for white-trash and Nigerian bank scams.

It's just a mask of the virb, but all that matters is it's google-ability.

check it.

4-Tracker/Attacker will be out 8*15*07

In keeping with our schedule of releasing a new album every two years, our new joint "4-Tracker/Attacker" will "drop" on my birthday August 15th. I've mentioned before that it's sort of a solo album by me, but that shit doesn't matter. In reality it's just an MMDS record that Daniel doesn't happen to play on.

If you haven't noticed, he's quite busy with Steeples at the moment.

This album is all 4-track, all the time. It's lo-fi like a mother fucker and I'm almost done. One more level of mixdown and it's all yours my pretties. I'll be releasing it on the VIRB and via bittorrent, so 1337s and n00bs alike will be able to download and listen.

More changes to how you access our music.

Ok, so the VIRB now has the last three albums on it. This page has the first album on it. Make sense? Good.

Indie Rock is Alive and Well in Texas

I made us a VIRB account today. Check it. I think it's nice. If you're not "hip" to virb.com, it's like myspace, but for people who have some modicum of taste in web design.

Registration is pretty limited for virb right now, so if you decide you'd like an invite, email me and let me know. I have a hundred of them, and I don't know more than ten people, so I have tons to give away.

4 trakker/attakker (that's our new lo-fi record, for all the n00bs who aren't 1337 [leet] in the ways of the MMDS) is on it's way out. I'll post something about it when it's done.

[I know this is a cross post from my personal blog, but I'm a lazy fuck.]
