a poppy ditty with no guitars, no verse/chorus structure at all, and so many overtones, undertones, subtones, halftones... all with a sarcastic smirk, from my 3rd album "No Standard Model"

one of my favorites from the album

i think ive made this comment before, but i just love the drums on this. they just sound fierce. this song is one of my favorites from the album. for a lot of reasons. i like how catchy it is for what it is. the singing is just contagious, your voice sounds good on this, and it the way its sung gets it stuck in my head. its weird having a song like this stuck in your head because its not like there's like a main melody or anything. its not like a The Strokes song or something with really loud, front and center melodies. its just some scattered noise, some really good scattered noise.
and, as a bassist, its nice to hear a lot of emphasis on bass guitar. :D
YEAAAAAAAAH OH WELCOME TO REAL LIFEEE. < best part, haha.

:))))

this same drumset is the one i'm using on all the new songs. keeping it consistent throughout. guitar sound as well. single guitar recordings, dual a little bit. i'm getting a more faux live set sound... a big, bold, grinding grunge sound my word, it'll be beautiful

Interesting stuff!

Great that you're making new stuff! Not somethinig I've heard from you before, actually I was kinda doutful about what it's gonna be after reading the description but it was truly awesome, once again. You've got some serious talent 'cause you can switch the style of music just like that and still sound just as great. I'm positively surprised. Really enjoyed this one and I can see you already had your share of zero bombers as well, so as a fan I'll try to 5-bomb it for a while, man.

"Pop" here doesn't necessarily mean "popular music" (since this is actually an interesting piece and something out of usual) so I'd say it's more of an abbreviation for "piece of perfection".

Lol, I recorded this March of 2010, released it (indie) on my album "No Standard Model" in July of that year, so... hmmm, grumble... begrudging :) with a side of :P

Thank you for the compliments and 5s for this one. I really did switch it up a bit, and I knew going into this it wasn't going to be one for the grunge bin. This was the last song recorded for that album, essentially a throwaway ditty that i could just keep light (and weird), and really sink my teeth into it vocally and lyrically. If I had to do it again, I'd put some solo guitar at the end, or just have it go on another few minutes with that... but something short and sweet was on my mind (and all that would fit on the album at that point), so here it is, in all its Pop single-length glory. I put it here (in Pop) because it IS what it is, a short little bouncy 4/4 time 3-chord groove... i think it's akin to "goodbye horses" and a few other songs that just go along and build and hit a climactic chorus-like section, then fade out. no verse-chorus-verse effect. fuck it. so, this was a fun experiment in instrumental minimalism, and also features the drum set that i'm using on the NEW NEW songs i've been working on. (hint, hint!) elsewhere on the internet I referred to the sound of the new album as "loud fast pop punk power metallic prog grunge crystalline entity fillet mignon bouillabaisse stew hullabaloo root down falcon punch angry salad birthday cake" - so, yeah it's going... tryin.
