Well, after working the last 9 months on a bunch of projects, including producing 3 albums for other people and writing about 60 pieces of music for clients, I finally had a few days without any client work. Since I don’t have any merch to sell when I play shows, I thought it would be a good idea to put together a CD with some of my music, and so I recorded all of the songs that will make up the standard edition of “The Evil Machine Is Broken”, with nothing but voice and acoustic guitar. It’s not a live recording, since I did comp the songs together to get better performances, but it’s about as raw and deconstructed as you can get, and is exactly how the songs sound when I play them live. I’m going to have a limited number of physical CD’s (do people actually own CD players anymore?) to sell at shows, but if you’d like one of those, you can order it through bandcamp. In the near future it’s also going to be available on itunes and whatnot, but I really like bandcamp, and always suggest that you purchase music through them, since the artist has more control over the process, and gets a larger percentage of sales.
I’ll be spending the next few months finishing up the fully produced album, and hope to have it available by the end of the summer. We’ll see if that actually happens. Until then, I’m going to leave it up for free to download, so if you like what you hear with the acoustic album, make sure to check out the demo tracks of the fully produced songs. Lots of drums, bass, electric guitar, and synth to rock out with!
