Carnival In Rome With Monsters In It

Posted by admin On May - 18 - 2010 ADD COMMENTS

When I first started recording for the Indie Folker project, I haven’t realized this entire thing is going to be this much about videos and filming and stuff like that. I’m not saying that I’m not enjoying it – because I really do – but recently I’ve been spending so much time watching videos, I forgot to finish some of the songs I was going to record next month. I am going to the UK for the summer and I really wanted to lay down some tracks before I went. That is probably not going to happen now, I might record some tunes while I’m there – I did plan on meeting up with a few singers/songwriters in the London area – so who knows?
Anyway, we’ve been talking about a video idea for Monsters In Rome since quite a while now, and as I usually get very anxious about new thins, I neglected most of my musical responsibilities in the video’s favor. I won’t be sharing very much information about this, because the big bad PR fella might decide to eat me for breakfast, but it’s definitely going to feature some of these curiously death-defying things: a cute dancing clown, some confetti, marmalade, a baby elephant, my bowler’s hat, red wine, a kitty, more red wine and a pair of really ugly hiking shoes. Sounds like loads of fun, doesn’t it? Stay tuned for that, I will be uploading the results to my YouTube channel, and will also feature it here on the site.

Monsters In Rome, free download

Many of you haven’t realized that I am offering the Monsters In Rome song off the album for free. So you needn’t pay for it, you just leave your email address in return, so I can send you more goodies in the future. Access the music section of the site from the menu and click download next to the song. You can’t miss it.

Anyway, I just wanted to clear that up, as many of you haven’t realized it is a free song.

In other news, I will be delaying the video for Afraid Not Scared for now, as I think I’ve found just the right solution and want to get it really right this time. 🙂 Hopefully, it won’t take more than a few days to get things in order, so stay tuned for that, yep!

As some of you might already know, we’ve recorded a live version of “Personal Disaster”. The song will be available on the “Monsters In Rome” record by Indie Folker. The record will be made available very very soon now. In the meantime, enjoy the end results:

Pre-listen to the album!

I am looking for a few “volunteers” to give my album a pre-listen, and share their opinion on the songs, the recordings and the arrangements, etc. I am doing this because I’ve been cooked up in the studio with these songs for a very long time now, and I am totally deaf when it comes to making any more adjustments. I also need your opinions on the final track list (as not all songs are created equal, not all will make it).
Ok, now for some requirements: you need to be a huge music fan in general, and you especially need to like indie folk. I won’t be insulted by any opinion, I really want honest feedback.
I am sending out the CDs to a few of my musician friends later on this month, so if you would like to be one of the people to pre-listen, contact me and I will send you the un-mastered album, which you can keep.
FOR THIS, you will also receive a free copy of the album once the CDs arrive from the press, way before the actual release date.

So let me know.
