Sup NG pals. I'm posting outside of the advertisements thread to promote my new album dropping on July 9th. And yes, I got the OK from Rucklo ;)
Here's some copy pasta from the promo page:
"I've been working on this album for the past three years, long and overdue mostly as a result of my laziness. I remember working on a track back then with a humorous vocal sample of my girlfriend singing about the comfortable life of a tiger in the wild. Or within the confinements of a zoo. Either way, the track derailed and became 'What It Feels Like to Discover...' I learned that I was actually capable of producing something closer to my emotions unlike anything I've done before, and I decided I wanted to take the rest of my work from that point forward in the same direction. I wanted to finally publish something I wouldn't be embarassed to share later, something that can accurately convey my feelings and personality. Hopefully you'll enjoy this album, and maybe even feel moved by it, because I've done everything for it to the best of my judgement to keep it on a straight track from the very core of my personal life.
"I'm still young, and I still have a lot of development ahead of me. This is the greatest thing I have ever made thus far in my life, and I hope you enjoy it."
Vehement is the first album released under Sunwarped Records, a fresh local label in Phoenix run by Terminal11. There are ten tracks total, with a running time of 41:57. Printing was joint-funded by myself and Sunwarped with an initial order of 50 discs. Album photography was done by Alley Maerki (site dead at the moment), and ships with a promotional 17"x11" poster designed by Michael Maddux. It's being released alongside a free-to-download EP titled Three-Year-Old Slug.
You can listen to samples and pre-order Vehement or download Three-Year-Old Slug on modemaudio.com.
ALSO: For anyone in the Phoenix area, I'm playing a show at The Trunk Space on July 9th at 7pm, $5 door charge. We'll be celebrating both Sunwarped's debut and my CD release. More info on the show can be found here: Facebook, MySpace. If you happen to show up, let me know who you are!
Let me know what you think, I love hearing feedback. ;)
Thanks a ton for reading, etc.
