Hi Friends! I have a show coming up! I’m going to be singing original songs along side some sickening drag queens and outrageous performers. I’m pretty pumped about it!
The show is March 14th at Crush. There’s no cover, so get your booty down to see some queens and buy some drinks.
This song is a bit of a reward for people who made it through the whole album. Five and a half more minutes featuring the sounds from the album. I feel that this song ties things up nicely, revisiting arrangements used through out the album in an extended instrumental track.
Since the entire album focused around dysfunctional relationships I wanted to end the album in a way that really made the listener feel alone, which is why the track ends with just a kick drum. It’s such a simple trick but really triggers a feeling of isolation and stands in sharp contrast to a an otherwise busy album.
Thanks for sticking around and while I chatted about my album! I’m working hard on the next one and can’t wait for you to hear it!
This upbeat number rounds out the themes of the album as a big trance-rock anthem. As the final track with lyrics I wanted to leave the listener on a high note. I think this song would go over fairly well live, as it’s very palatable and easy to pick up on the content.
Welcome to the first tempo change of the album! Musically, I wanted this track to mimic the great horror soundtracks of the later 70s and early 80’s. I was very much inspired by Goblin and his soundtracks for Zombi and Susperia.
Lyrically, I kind of hate this song. It’s a very personal song and still brings up a lot of negative feelings when I sing it. I allowed my anger seep into my vocals on this track.
Since this album was focusing so much on creating a sense of flow between the tracks I needed to rely on lyrics to create surprises for the listener. I chose to sing about David Bowie’s fictional death as a way to shock the listener into attention. Musically, this song is as dark as the subject matter and I couldn’t be happier with it. This track feature a noisy stretch of whitespace at the end in order to spin us into the final act of the album.
A straight up comedy track sung from the perspective of the last person you would ever want to be hitting on you at a club. Musically, I love the modern pop sounds with the simple song structure and the explosive first chorus. I feel conflicted about the lyrics, though, but what’s comedy without conflict?
A reprieve from the anger and distortion of the previous tracks. This song is an experiment in repetition and features lyrics that address concerns of how we spend our time and our energy. The trance crescendo during the bridge was a major turning point in the production of the album. I regret the overly modulated vocals, but feel this is otherwise a very strong song.
The back portion of the song was originally a stand alone song that was cut down to act as an interlude between each half of the album.
