Received my CDs last night! They
look absolutely amazing, better than anything I had hoped for!
I thought maybe the colors would bleed or be faded, but no, they
are like digital photographs, crisp clear and beautiful, all in
a awesome gloss finish. I'm so happy with them - I can't
believe it's finally finished! Thanks to Dustin, Kari, and Kyle
for helping me out so much!
|I guess I
could explain what it sounds like as a mix of Daft Punk,
Chemical Brothers, Aphex Twin, with a little bit of punk
rock. A little ambient in parts, a little drum and bass, a
little techno-y, a little glitch. If you visited my
you've probably heard the rough cut of Chasing The Ghost (it
sounds a lot better now, all mixed and mastered to
perfection), which I sing over, I guess you could say it
sounds like Ministry sung over electronica.
You can purchase the hard copys at
Treehouse Records at 26th and Lyndale ave south in Minneapolis
for $6.99, or at the gas station on 28th and Lyndale ave south
in Minneapolis for $7. I'll soon have them in Cheapo stores as
well. You can also purchase just the songs above online (and
secure) for $3.99. Thanks to the 11 or so odd people who have
bought the album already, I really appreciate you supporting my
heroin habit (haha just kidding!)
[edit 11/09: I don't think
Treehouse has the albums anymore, and I'm out at the moment on
CDs at the store, and also they are now only 5 dollars]
Haven't received the cds yet, but
you can buy it the tracks on my SnoCap Store [edit 11/09:

Feels Like 0
Dance With Me
chasing the ghost has a new
beginning and end. system0xC has a altered beat. bloodeye has
new parts to all sections of it. defloration has new parts to
most of the sections to it. aeolian has new parts in the static
and new beats over the rest. grape minds has a new bassline
over this one really technoey part so now its all badass, but i
think it may be a bit long but o well.
Cover pictures updated
Progress Report thingy added
Feels Like 0 has many new subtle
touches to it. System0xC is a bit more chaotic. Bloodeye is
shorter and has a new part to it.

Heres some more info on
01. chasing the
ghost - This was the first time I was recorded
singing, the first time singing over a song, even the
first time I sang my own song in front of people.
recorded it on my birthday, Dec. 8th 2007. It was
awesome, Dustin Duffy recorded it in his bedroom that
night after I got off of work. It only took a few
takes. Dustin later mastered the song. I had the song
for about a year, I kept pulling it out and thinking how
cool vocals would be over it, but never did anything
about it, putting it back on the 'to do' list. A week
before my birthday it just came to me that I needed to
do this song and I needed to put it on this album.
few rough drafts of lyrics later and I was ready to sing it.
are the lyrics, such as they are:
on the town, the little city, and I can't put out
I'm all juiced up, I'm cut! I know I'm dreamy but
I'm nothing but a liar
Shift it down, around, ya glad to see me? I'm proud
to drop the sound, cause it's so easy,
and I can't go back, I'm jacked, I'll take no flak,
and I'm cutting it to the wire, wire!
hoo-haa, hoo-haa, hoo-haa, hoo-haa, hoo-haa, hoo-haa,
hoo - I'm the man with the gun
hoo-haa, hoo-haa, hoo-haa, hoo-haa, hoo-haa, hoo-haa,
hoo - I'm the man with the Gun
And I'm tons of fun, gonna break it and run, I'm the
sugary one, a little chocolate delight
And I found another secret and I won't tell you, I
gotta bottle this shit, I gotta battle my youth!
I'm a star to be seen, apocalyptic machine, I'll be
sweeping on in and I'm taking you out
And what you do to me, that little body, I hate to
state your fate, gonna Eradicate!
Hey, kid, do you wanna get down?
Hey, kid, we'll go all over the town!
Hey, kid, do you wanna get down, and around, and
around, with the sound on the town?
I'm on my knees, begging for ya please, make me feel
at ease, oh jeez! I need a doctor
Stop the pain, girl, Oooo! Can you be any crueler,
did I act like a fool? Why you striking me down?
I'm like a blade trap, take that, wrack it in ruins
Then you rise up, claws up, you take me apart
I'm like a leaf on the breeze, I'll be on top of the
Just have to say to me that
You're my little girl
Baby, Baby, come on!
You're my little girl
Oo Ding Dang Dong Dong Diggy
yah I'm laying this on the block, this little ditty
Gonna travel this across the land, and I hope that I
come back a little bit Wiser, Wiser!
Martyr Rock, we'll back it to the wall, design
another fall, stand tall, a little reticent
I'm a doctor of sorts, and I'm checking you out, and
the bottom line is: come get your Medicine
Oo, run run, let's have a little fun, it's time to
get it on, and on, let's go another round!
And pound for pound, they'll be dropping like flies,
there's no need to disguise, that:
I came to get downnnn
Yah I came to get Dowwwnnnnnn
Yah I came to get Dowwwwwwwwnnnnnnn-ah
02. feels like 0 -
Title track, I got the name from the weather.
actually 4 songs frankensteined together. The last part
of it with the little lead in and lead out were
completely f'd up when i tried transferring it to
another hard drive so now those are completely off time
and I only have a copy of it in wav/mp3 form.
(Edit: 2013 - Hard drive crash has since destroyed all
files to this album Except the wavs and mp3s, lol.)
by Dustin Duffy.
03. system0xc -
The first part are looped guitar samples chopped up to
hell. The second part is jazzy guitars chopped up to
hell. You can hear a crappy drum from the original f'ing everything up in the second part.
I did a lot of
last minute changes on this one. It's title doesn't
really have a meaning. Mastered by Dustin Duffy.
04. bloodeye -
I so wanted to be Daft Punk on this one. Sounds like
Crystal Castles a bit at the end. A lot of people have
told me they like this one the most. Mastered by Dustin
05. defloration -
I wanted something for a I'd never think of so I checked
out an abstract word website, and this one stuck out for
the title. You actually feel like you are losing your
virginity listening to this. I think the cymbals may be
too quiet, just a sliver. It took me a long time to
finish it. Mastered by Dustin Duffy.
06. aeolian -
Not from the same site, but pretty damn abstract.
means the sound the wind makes, like whistling or
howling, sounds that aren't really there. If you listen
carefully to the first part, preferably on headphones, you can hear a
bunch of sounds, and if you concentrate on picking those
out, you start to hear things that aren't actually there
through the static. The second part is some classical
instruments chopped up, I glitched the beat a bit at the
last stages of this song. (Edit 2013: I'm
using the second part in the game
Dungeon Hunters.) Mastered by Dustin Duffy.
07. grape minds
taste alike - This used to be 30 minutes long, I cut
it down a lot. It's pretty long still. I just wanted to
make a really long song. There are 226 tracks to this
song. All in all, I think it came out pretty good.
It's used on the
People Talk Trailer 1 and during the behind the
scenes of People Talk. Mastered by Dustin Duffy.
08. dance with me -
The secret hidden track! Uh, heh, Ii was just trying
to be funny. Try: Failed. You can hear the song
echoing back through the mic at the end. I recorded it
on the crappiest computer mic ever made. Dustin Duffy
did a great job fixing it up when he mastered this.
* Thanks for listening!
