Because I don’t see any reason to keep paying for digital distribution, and because it’s all the same on the Internet anyway, my on-again-off-again band’s 2009 EP, An Incomplete History, is now available for free download on Bandcamp.

In the coming months we’ll be releasing a music video for

Have a listen to this record I produced with my dear old friend John. When I first met him, we shared a dorm room in Hawaii. I subsequently went to college with him in England and we have made all manner of music and videos together.

This album also features the drummer and washboard player from The Brothers Bloom score. If you’re into that sort of thing.

If I was in Austin, I’d be going to this!

jddavidson:

My band, The New Time, is doing a public rehearsal in an art museum this Saturday as part of Graham Hudson’s “Rehearsal at the Astoria” exhibit here in Austin. 

They told us this is to be a rehearsal and not a performance, the idea being that we display our ‘creative process,’ which in our case is going to involve me saying things like, “it needs to be more evil-sounding,” or, “will you just try falsetto yelling it? Just try it.” It might also involve the entire band arguing for 45 minutes whether there are 9 or 10 counts in that one part. We’re not going to come out of this looking very cool, that’s for sure.

Whoa… Now this is gonna be a crazy cool collaboration!
You might remember that I produced the debut album by The New Time, which Marke did the artwork for last year. Now they’re in Austin doing a mashup with hitrecord. 
I’ll let you read what my brother writes about it below. If you’re a musician, go be a part of it!

So remember I said we were cooking something cool up with John & The New Time for our shows? Dan just “officially” started the collaboration page, and here’s the description:
The hitRECord community is going to play live with a local Austin band (http://www.newtimemusic.com) at our Saturday screenings at SXSW. RECord yourself playing along with the demo of the song -http://www.hitrecord.org/records/63328. We’re creating an audio/video RECord that will play as sort of a companion to the band and sort of a member of the band.Joe totally wants to play live with the band and this RECord. While we cannot promise anything, if there’s any way of logisticizing it, that’s what will happen.The video we’re making will be projected behind the band while they rock with our sound (or we play along with their sound). The video will have some parts SXSW, some parts video of hitRECorders playing the music mentioned above, some parts video of normal sounds being used musically like the Non Music Video from Sundance http://www.hitrecord.org/records/29189. We will be posting some sound Resources that we’ve RECorded here at SXSW. You can Release new sounds, Remix sounds from the Non Music Video, remix other existing RECords, Remix what’s already in this Collaboration or anything else.IMPORTANT NOTESPlay the song on headphones while you RECord yourself.Video RECord yourself RECording it. We likely won’t use audio-only RECords.Release ONLY your own audio — don’t mix the existing song or drums with yours… all the parts will get mixed together later and it’ll be easier to do that if your audio is clean by itself.If you can Release your video at 720p, please do. If not, we can work with it anyway. If that doesn’t mean anything to you, don’t worry, just Release what you got.The song is likeVerse (3x) Am-C-EBridge (2x) Dm-C-GChorus (3x) F-G-C-F-G-ERecorded to a click at 120 bpmKey of CReady? Go!

One of the most enjoyable music videos I’ve seen in a long time.

Check out the aggressive dance choreography — wickedness.
