Catching Up

Alright. It’s time for me to play a little bit of catch-up with you guys. As I’ve been rather busy lately pushing my band’s album and preparing for our show at FreeTulsa Music Festival next weekend, I’ve neglected to post consistently. For that I apologize.

Now that that’s settled, go ahead and take some time to listen to the forthcoming album Mines by the longstanding Portland-based group Menomena via NPR’s Exclusive First Listen. You can do that here. The album’s due June 27.

Next, Department of Eagles released their anthology of previously unreleased tracks on an album appropriately titled Archive 2003-2006 yesterday. I recommend you take time to listen to that as well. For a sample, watch a homemade video for their single “While We’re Young” via The Connection over on the right side of this page.

The Love Language released their deliciously 60’s sunshiney pop-tinged album Libraries last week. It’s very good. Listen to the full album here.

Finally, as I mentioned earlier, my band People,People has been very busy lately. One of the many endeavours in which we’re currently involved is the making our first music video for our single “Five Year Drought.” Excitingly enough, you can watch a teaser promo for the video, also via The Connection over on the right side of this page.

Enjoy! Thanks for understanding! I love all of you!


Shameless Self-Promotion: People,People

My band People,People has finally finished our self-titled debut album!

We wrote all the orchestra arrangements and recorded/mixed/produced the entire album ourselves (it’s been quite a ride) in our living room, so we’re pretty proud of our not-so-little full-length LP. (There’s even an overture section!)

It would mean the world to me if you would take some time and listen to at least a few tracks from the album. If you like it, then PLEASE TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW ABOUT US.

Since we just got the master copy of the album last night, it’s not available for sale just yet, but in the hopes of spreading our music to the most people that we can, we’ve posted the entire album for streaming at our Myspace.

Just click here to enter the world of People,People.

Hope you enjoy it!

First Listens: Sleigh Bells, The Black Keys

Two duos-Sleigh Bells and The Black Keys- are putting their albums up for previewing before their official release dates over at NPR.

Head here to hear the crunchy electro-rock/pop sounds of Sleigh Bells’ LP Treats.

Head here to sample the latest bluesy album, Brothers,  from The Black Keys.

Sorry for the brevity of this post- I’m still in the middle of mixing my band’s debut album. We’re called People,People and we’re posting new unmastered tracks in a rotating door fashion each day as we get closer to finishing the project. You can check out our orchestral prog-rock here.
