Phobias I: Goats Hate Synths

I've got to stop blogging so earl in the morning but...

Kung Fu Classes For Women is my name for my electronic band.  I finished the first album this week and plan on putting out 2-4 more this year.  For the first record, I really only made two rules: 1) No guitars and 2) No vocals.  Also, you will notice that these songs are very synth heavy.  As it turns out, I like these tracks more and more each time I hear them.  I'm pretty happy with the end result and I love the art I made for the cover, even if it is totally ghetto...

Here's the big version because you need to see it in all its glory. Notice the pixelated synthesizer an pixelated 808.  Also, digital goat is hella-pissed.  So yeah, I hope you like the tunes.  More news and things coming soon.

i'm not daredevil

Matt Murdock is not Daredevil.

I've been on a long hiatus for several reasons.  No more.  More details to come in the next few days about Phobias, Part I and a few other projects.  I've released 9 new tracks in the last 3 days.  Check them out or just check out this one:

i might be strong but i'm not immune

It's 6:04 AM and I've been up all night.  Two years ago I wrote an album called Self-Destructor.  For the most part, I wrote and recorded all of it that May with a few tracks that came a little later down the road.  After I wrote it and sequenced it in demo form, I couldn't listen to it or play any of the songs on it because it basically ripped me apart whenever I listened to any of them.  Well, it's been two years and I listened to it last week and instead of feeling unbearable, it felt like I was hearing something I'd forgotten about and that I've missed.  

So, last night I started rerecording "Balloon" and "Tear Here" and I'll be revisiting the rest of the songs I wrote for that album in the coming weeks.  One difference from the norm:  I won't release any of them until the entire album is done because I need them to come out as a group.  It just makes sense that way.

For now here's the old version of "Blue Ocean Waves" which will be getting a revamp soon.

i watch you rage in the sahara tent

It's been a busy few weeks and I'll just say that the music is back because that's something that wasn't there for a while.  I've recorded 10 songs in the last two weeks which is a good sign.  Tonight I wrote the song below.  It was inspired by Paris Hilton's tweets. The song was originally going to be about altered states and mushrooms but I decided a Twitter Coachella heiress hipster inspired jam was way better.  I hope you like it.  I am excited about where the music is going because it's more or less just coming to me now even more so than it was two years ago when I record the 100+.  We'll see how this year pans out...we could be looking at the 300 demos project :).  Peace out y'all.  

Oh and feel free to follow me on Twitter if you read this and don't.  I avoided it for a while but now I'm all over it again. @m3d1um.

tie my hands behind my back i'm back i'm back oh wait i'm not really back

and my panic attack is a panic attack when I'm under attack...I'm under attack.

It's snowing in space.

4 new songs + a remix = my entire output in 2011. I hope you're still here because I don't plan on stopping anytime soon.

I have to organize and categorize a bunch of songs in progress in the weeks to come because I lost my list when my machine crashed the last time. That's going to take a bit of work since I have to pull all of that stuff from my notebooks.

More tomorrow about the songs from this weekend because I'm tired and really just felt like posting something about nothing so here's some shadowkitten.
