Accoustic Art-Rock Americana
Lyrics about termites, bees, getting hit by a truck, “Back to the Future”, prison, murder, and a road trip gone bad. Odd time signature country with a saxophone. Electronic beats with accordion. The sound of crunching pinecones, flipping book corners, banging dishes, and heavy breathing. Normal songs about love, jealously, fear, guilt, and longing with a twist of the abnormal. An aggressively confrontational synthesis of the naturalistic and traditional with the manic and bizarre.
Crave all of these things? In that case, I’ve got an album for you.
I’m in an art-rock band Opposite Day. This side project is sort of a counter-point to that. Influenced by Zappa, TMBG, and Fishbone’s insane artiness, and drawn to Wilco’s, Beck’s, and Frank Blacks rollicking melancholy, we’ve got ourselves an art-rock and jazz influenced Americana project. Or maybe it’s a country-tinged prog-pop experiment. Or maybe its just a fun way to pass the time with a microphone, a computer, and some awesome musician-friends.
