The Amberlake Sessions

I had originally named this album "Elementary Ballet" because I am an idiot. I have since reorganized a little and grouped these four songs into The Amberlake Sessions "Runnin' From the Po-Po" is the first song I've tried to make "the modern way" and is quite easily the best song in the pack. The percussion and bass were written/sequenced using Fruity Loops with a drumline buddy Wes (Norway) from back in highschool. It's about as old school as we could make it; got to pay one's dues and all. The breakdown in the middle was an exercise in sound effects but I'd say this came out well. After so many years of life on the streets, one finds the need to express themselves. "Anime Central", "Funk You, Bobsled Joe", and "Nailgun Abortion" were done with some other friends from highschool. I did the vocals, bass guitar and also the lead on "Nailgun". It sounds pretty rough but we did sample a real nailgun for authenticity. (Thanks Louie!)

The volume on these tracks is pretty low. I'll fix that the next time I have a half hour to kill.

Funny thing -- about a week ago I found this on my iPod and just had to show it to everyone.

"Sit on my face."

Classic? I think so.
