Thanks!

In other news, I was signed to a record label today. Contracts signed. I'm on cloud 9.

They were silly enough to think I'm actually any good.

Time to party up in this bitch.

Holy poo poo, congratulations!!

I like how this one turned out. It was inspired by a repair job that took way too long and didn't go well, and I still had to drive for over two hours to get back home.

I took this really cute picture of Franky the tortoise on my new Minibrute 2, and I just had to make a song that would use it as a track image. Unfortunately, the track doesn't actually use the synthesizer, although I plan on using it if I can come up with an entry for Bonerjams 3.

My February Album Writing Month project is pretty much done.. I just need to fill a jar with preservative, crack open a pack of preserved lampreys, and take the cover photo. Once this is done, I'll upload it to Bandcamp, but for now, you can hear it at https://alonetone.com/spacehoers/pl...jar-of-lampreys

EDIT: It's on Bandcamp at https://spacehoers.bandcamp.com/album/jar-of-lampreys - name your price, but I'll be surprised if anyone actually pays for it.

Same thing here; if was me, I'd dipping those tracks in a whole lotta reverb sauce; they're good stuff but just sound kinda flat to me without more effects. But if you're shooting for a super-clean 80's style, then it's perfect.

I did add some lo-fi/dirt effects to some of the instruments, but I held back when it came to adding effects to the whole track, since I was afraid I'd overdo it (and what I did add started to make my computer choke... I think I need to upgrade!!).

I plan on making some more filthy sounding tracks in the future, especially since Mishby finally came out (https://freakshowindustries.com/mishby).

Also, preserved lampreys are a thing?! Holy crap I thought I had some weird taste in food and album covers.

My wife teaches biology - these lampreys aren't for eating. She had a jar of them in preservative that I was going to use, but it got knocked off of a shelf and broke, so we have to make a new one. She has some vacuum sealed packs of them in storage in her lab, so we just have to get a proper sized jar. I thought of using some other lab specimens for the cover (she has several containers of specimens, including a couple buckets of preserved horseshoe crabs), but she insists that it has to be lampreys.

Edit: I ended up putting the jar on a shelf with a bunch of intestinal parasites for the picture. You can't really see what else is on the shelf in the square photo, but if I release a tape of this, I'll use the full photo as the cover.

Thanks so much for checking it out! I'll check out your albums, too.

I was bored and threw this together over the past couple of days, and it was somewhat inspired by a cheezy 80s horror movie I recently watched called Brain Damage. I actually used my Minibrute 2 on this track.

EEK! My mistake! I haven't listened to that one in a while, so I didn't even think of it. Now, Lola is looking at me like I'm an rear end in a top hat.

Daww, thank you. Y'know, that's not a bad idea; hail my FB/local folks and make a tribute comp as not only a fund-raiser for my cat's inevitable... thing... [pause to cry here] but I could give the rest to the non-profit shelter here in town.

I'm 100% okay with my tracks being included on such a fundraiser... I've had many, many pets over the years and know all too well what it's like to have to make that final trip to the vet.

I also set "Driving Back from High Prairie" as allowing downloads, so you can download it.

Yep, that's the soundtrack for my head right now too.

Funny, on first listen I was all, "y'know, this is cool, but I'd like it if it had some beats"... and that's exactly when the beats came in! Good track, and be well, my fellow anxiety sufferer. Make a music and make the (or at least your) world better, sometimes that's all you can do.

Thanks! I ran the drums through a plugin called Backmask, which reverses audio.

(Also the art is adorable, did you do it?)

I didn't actually do the art... when I do tracks like this, I often browse Google image search until I find something appropriate.

https://soundcloud.com/the_door_is_...ff-of-the-stove - The gasket in my pressure cooker needs to be replaced.

https://soundcloud.com/the_door_is_...il-doppelganger - There's a cat in the neighborhood who looks exactly like Pat (although the other cat has an intact tail). This cat is apparently really nasty and attacks people (as opposed to Pat, who's really sweet), and I saw Evil Cat in my yard recently.

Same here. If the forums die, I'm going to miss everyone, and thanks to everyone for listening to my music and offering encouragement.

I uploaded this last night - https://soundcloud.com/the_door_is_...im-staying-home - it looks like it was featured in someone's playlist, and ended up with 100 listens overnight. Usually, I'm lucky if I get 20-30 total.

Cat in the picture is Pat, the one with the evil doppleganger.

I recently released a compilation of stuff I've done since the pandemic started... it's called "Lets Not Leave the House", in response to my earlier compilation of random tracks I did during the beforetime called "Lets Leave the House". If anyone's curious, it's at https://spacehoers.bandcamp.com/alb...leave-the-house

The overall message ended up being "Stay home and grow drugs", although I didn't plan this at first... Mr. Mcpherson refers to Robert McPherson, who invented the PF Tek.
