Who wants free music? Posted May 16, 2012 - 11:41:13
So, earlier this week I released the second Lt. Snorkel EP (and overall fifth project I've done under that name). It's a simple little four track production of covers, and it's called Repeated Minds.
I know that I just put out a full length album a few months ago (Mistakes I Made On Purpose - which you can also download), but these are ideas that have been kicking around and I didn't want to put more than one cover on that particular release.
One of the tracks on Repeated Minds should be familar and, frankly, old hat for fans of my now defunct band Happy Wednesday. That is, of course, the industrial version of "The Hokey Pokey." This is actually the recording that was always intended for the never-materialized album "Beacon of Awesome," and features Matt Biedermann on Guitar prominently. The rest of the track though was actually performed by myself the way any other Lt. Snorkel song would - and while I've leaked it here and there, I've never formally put it out.
So I figured I should do something about that.
A version of Regdar and the Fighters's "Cloud Burst" appears as well on this, which features Vomit Hat Steve himself on vocals. Cloud Burst comes originally, of course, from the "Harry Potter and I Must Scream" that was put out earlier this year. I collaborated on the album, significantly contributing to two tracks - one of which was the reprise of Cloud Burst at the end of the album. But besides what showed up in the final release, I put together some stuff that Steve chose not to use, and this is one of them.
The rest of the tracks include, oddly enough, a Backstreet Boys cover, and a mashup of The Offspring's Gone Away with the Tears for Fears classic Mad World. Like I said, four simple tracks, all available for download for free.
