No swear mix this week.
Going to be a short post this week because I'm working overtime to get ready for the listening party/open house. That said,
Listening party/open house:
That's it! I'll have PBR/High Life and/or the like, and will see if I can convince Cassandra to bake something. Music will be on all night. I will stay until everyone is gone. If we retain enough wits to make a celebration song, we will do so.
If you're interested in seeing the Taxpayer taping, come at 7:30.
Better Sasquatch Hunter t-shirt photos YOU BUY NOW:
Several people requested more detailed look at the shirt design.
Also a picture of the brown shirt:
Still doesn't do them justice, I don't think.
And, the path to salvation, which is inexplicably left-justified:
This is where it gets short. This song is awesome. My favorite so far. If I could maintain the concentration to make songs like this all the time, I would. Has a cool, early-Outkast vibe. J. Buckingham Towlson, yet another C4RT member, contributed mightily to the chorus. And that's former Indef bassist Giraffterbirth doing the work on the low chorus vocals. Sah-weet.
A photo essay of cheap-synths:
Drove to East Boston today to help liquidate a guy who had gotten over his hardware and was paring down his setup. Read: he was selling synths for $20 each. What follows is a short and half-hearted photo-essay of what I bought and how interested you should be in it.
1. Farfisa Pro Electric Piano. Bottom half of keyboard doesn't work. Sounds cool. I'd like to (a) learn how to fix it and (b) fix it. Heavy as the cross.
You should be: pumped if you dig old shit.
2. Kawai K5m. THIS IS A SYNTHESIZER. I have a similar one. Now they are near one another, too.
3. Casio VZ-10M. One of few Casio synths that targeted the professional market. Confusing-looking. Will most likely have big, digital sounds.
4. Casio DG-10 Digital Guitar, one generation younger than the one made noteworthy by Flight of the Conchords in this song. Here I am, getting all singer-songwriter:
I don't play the guitar. Neither does he.
End photo essay.
See you next week.
