A live version of Midnight Carlight from October 2019. I think they wanted to show they have the chops live and that the scream solo is for real. What I know of the scream solo (studio version) is that they used one of two takes in its entirety.

For the record in the video below, no overdubs or auto-tuning. It has been mixed and that's it. They use backing tracks for now and cannot wait until the economics allow for a full backing band.

I am excited for the next ten days or so. Lots of good music and more coming. There’s a slow roll of momentum happening, that for a numbers junkier like me is fun to follow.

The first single wasn’t designed to make much impact. More a hello, we’ve matured and can’t wait for you to hear the rest. Plus, it is a damn cool song and sets up Garrison, the singer to showcase how special he is.

Next up is a fun dance song and a simmering ballad. The ballad has a just out of this world vocal delivery. There’s a stretch from the 90 second mark to about two and a half minutes in that is so pure that my bet is it is, quite honestly the best vocal delivery you’ll hear all year. Not in the Whitney Houston vocal gymnastics kind of way but pure and emotive. In a ‘here’s my heart, please love me’ kind of way. A hundred listens later it can still give me goosebumps.

My kid shared some of the messages he gets about his music. All I can say is that to anyone who reaches out to a small indie band appreciating music, you are heroes in a way.

These are weird times for any bands, more so small bands. Messages are their applause when they can't play live. If you like a band, especially an indie band, reach out and say so. They take it to heart. And please share the music, you are their promotional budget.

Friday, the future changes. Monster Squad gets released. Or rather the future changes at the 14 second mark. That’s the moment. The lead track from the coming album. Infectious doesn’t begin to describe.
Everything released to date was to get us here. I believe this song is going to kick the doors open. Crazy thing is far as songs go, it doesn’t make in my top five on the album.
The video To support it is an homage. It’s pretty cool.
Yeah, I am as high as a kite but just enjoying this moment in time.

What is the best way to purchase this thing?

iTunes or Bandcamp. They are more than happy for people to stream for free. All they really want is if you like it, share it.

What I love best about Monster Squad, it most sounds like my kid. Eyes focused on a happy as feck future. A future you wiggle your butt to.

I have such a super strange relationship with this album. Literally, it is my kid’s dream. He believes there is more in the future but this is his statement. If the ends, he is okay because this has been released.

As a parent, that is sick as fuck. But I believe in the music too. The lyrics are honest and have a time in life depth that isn’t always apparent, but I know the story to every song. All I can say is there is unexpected depth.

Monster Squad on July 31, MDMA on August 21, and the album on August 28. It will honestly be in my top 5 for the year. Not number one, barring a seismic shift in the universe that belongs to Fiona Apple.

Double post. I did say I was as high as a kite.

No but the Fiona I am dating is the apple of my eye.
