PS Earth & Crate Amp_01

on April 22, 2020 - 12:45pm

Hey all, here are a couple more unreleased demos. You can listen on Soundcloud. Hope that you are doing well.

PS Earth

This one was recorded at the tail end of the Hesitant Alien demo sessions, just Doug and I. I liked it well enough at the time, felt kind of 90’s, didn’t end up putting any vocals on it though. I like the bridge a lot. Looking back at the whole thing, I like it, but not sure if I’m going to finish it. Guitar, bass by me. Programmed drums by Doug.

Crate Amp_01

This is the start of the Crate amp jam.

The Quarantine Coloring Book

on April 9, 2020 - 12:15pm

Hey everyone! Having a great birthday so far, thank you for all the birthday wishes. So, we wanted to do something special today for everyone in quarantine or stuck at home, also for people that can’t stay home but want something to get their mind off things when they get home from work. Healthcare workers and essential personnel we love you!
My friend Sara Taylor @seriouscreep from Youth Code came up with this amazing idea and I really wanted to help her with it.

Phoning It In

on April 7, 2020 - 9:15am

Phoning It In. I’ve always loved the phrase and I was just inspired to write a song with it. To keep in spirit with the title of the song, I made sure not to try too hard on any one element. I wrote the riff quickly, wrote the lyrics quickly, we got the guitar sound quickly, and there was no overthinking or really changing anything. My only complaint about it is that I think it is a little too fast, so it forces me to sing harder to keep up, and it doesn’t fully sound like I’m phoning in the vocals. So I thought about slowing it down and delivering a more laid back vocal take.

Crate Amp_02

on April 6, 2020 - 7:15pm

This is one of maybe five tracks of me messing around with this Crate amp I got off of Reverb for cheap. It has a mysterious stain on the front that looks like someone had put a candle on top of the amp and the wax just dripped down the front. In the listing, the stain was described as “a stain that mostly comes off”. One of the things Doug and I were experimenting with for the last three months was how bad we could get stuff to sound.

Back before Hesitant Alien was a thing, and before I wanted to pursue a solo career, I wanted to start a band and just sing and play guitar, after my chem broke up. The name of the band was going to be Baby Animal Hospital (the record label hated the name, especially since it included both the words ‘baby’ and ‘hospital’ in the same phrase), and I did a bunch of rough graphic design for it, but in the end, it really felt like a solo thing, so that’s what it became.
