A couple people have recently emailed me asking about the instrumental version of The Fabulist that plays during the scene on the Fidele in The Brothers Bloom. We decided not to include it in the official soundtrack album (maybe because of the jarring horn cutaway right in the middle that plays along as Stephen references something about thugs and Jakarta?), but I thought I’d post it here for those who are interested. Happy Friday!

You can find the full soundtrack (with the lyric version of The Fabulist) here.

Sampling and beat-making magic over at Ruby Red Studios with Jake Sinclair and Katie. This is how I like to do it: a new song, soup to nuts, in one day from sound-gathering and sampling to beat-making and the hook.

We should probably call this one Penny Arcade since we made most of the track with pieces recorded from a nearby pinball machine. Also, electric razors as bass-bursts for the win.

Here’s a snippet of a tune Katie and I wrote that Son Lux remixed.

A little blast from the past, circa 2007. This is our very first collaboration with Mr. Son Lux. Little did we know there would be many more to come…

He snagged and remixed a little vocal clip from “Easy Days & I” — a song off my first solo record, Firecracker. Have a listen!

Faux Fix - My Antagonist

We’re launching a full tour of Living Room shows this week and we wanted to post the title track from the new record (available at iTunes, bandcamp, Spotify, etc.)

Enjoy!

Check out the title track off the new Faux Fix record, produced by Son Lux and myself, and featuring the string stylings of yMusic. Katie and I wrote this one about two years ago in England at the Living Room B&B with a nod to the cinema of old Europe.

Hope you can come see us on our Living Room Tour this month!!!
