Hold Your Love

Good evening,

Tonight I am posting a new video that Jay has made for "Hold Your Love" from Rain Station's Underground CD. Jay posted this second video today on Facebook and naturally I'll use any excuse to blog about SOMETHING so there!





So here's the NEW video...

Hold Your Love from Super Fantastic Ultra on Vimeo.

Here's the track if you want to listen and not watch...
Have a great evening...remember to hug those you love!

Monsters-Creatures

Good evening,

I thought I'd post"Monsters-Creatures" from the "Outlaws" album tonight.  This is probably my favorite track off the album.

This song was written while I was living in Oakland about a weekend when I was responsible for taking care of someone else's dogs. They spent the entire weekend howling, growling and making life pretty miserable.

This song was recorded on my old 4-track.  Some day I'd like to break it out again and record on it.  There was something very simple about using it.

Anyhow, have a listen...leave some feedback...I'd dig it...


Have a creepy evening,

Slice A Piece Of Heaven

Good evening,

Flying among the clouds on my recent business trip this song came on my iPod.  I began thinking about the "good old days" when I could record with Brian Peet.  Back then I didn't have as much responsibility.  I'd like to slice a piece of Heaven about now. How about you?

Brian recently sent me two of his latest discs.  Check out what Brian has been up to here! I have always had tremendous respect for Brian and his musical genius. Brian adds vocals to this track taken from Rain Station's "Fancy Fancy" CD. Slice A Piece Of Heaven.

Have a listen:



I'll slice a piece of heaven
Serve it all to you
Follow all my warnings
You'll wake up in the morning
Swallow fast and don't look back

We'll cut through the branches
Float down the streams
Cook on open fires
Slay dragons in our dreams
Run through Auburn fields
And laugh

And I'll slice a piece of Heaven
And I'll slice a piece of Heaven

I'll slice a piece of heaven
Serve it all to you
Follow all my warnings
You'll wake up in the morning
Swallow fast and don't look back

We'll cut through the branches
Float down the streams
Cook on open fires
Slay dragons in our dreams
Run through Auburn fields
And laugh

Don't lose sight of your dreams!

Somewhere Out

My upcoming business trip to Kansas City, MO isn't exactly what this song talks about, but I heard it on my way home and thought...yes...THIS is how I feel right now.

Taken from the mopehead disc, "It's Always Good" here's "Somewhere Out"...

And the words:

I wanna go somewhere out
Out to the edge of what's real

I wanna fly up in the sky
Swim with dolphins in warm seas
Create music without the lies
Bring the big shots all down to size and
I wanna smile when I see folks around me
Spend a day without frowns
Sing a place with lots of crowds
Feel so free I'd wanna laugh out loud

I wanna go somewhere out
Out to the edge of what's real
And would you know on my way out
I got to thinkin' just how I feel
And there's a lot of folks besides me
Livin' out a lie and it's a shame
Growning old and bitter
Lookin' around for someone to blame

Baby, it's like livin' with an open wound
Baby, it's like livin' with an open wound
Baby, it's like livin' with an open wound
Baby, it's like livin' with an open wound
And it drains you
It drains you

I wanna go somewhere out
Where I can start to heal
I wanna go somewhere out
Out to the edge of what's real
I wanna go somewhere out
Let's not take the car
Wander the woods looks to see
Just who finds the evening star
And it drains you
It drains you

Sleep tight...tomorrow I travel...

Winter Jam

Songs like this one make me wish I had a drum set.

"Winter Jam" was recorded during the Winter at the original Rain Station (Sunset District, SF) on my Tascam 4-track. I loved the sound of the studio there and how the live drums sounded.  I added this track to instrumental mopehead volume two with a ton of other tracks that needed a home.

Have a listen...

Cheers!

Sliding Away

I spent the weekend in the snow. Mostly ice really.  And as I was slipping around I kept thinking about this song...

"You got me ridin', now I'm flyin'...I'm sliding away..."



From Rain Station's STONEDOZER CD, "Sliding Away"...
Have a nice evening...stay warm...

It is 2014 people...time to "RISE"!!!

Hey everyone,

I'm going to try (I said TRY) to blog more regularly here.  My other blog (NorCal Beer Blog - here) takes a lot of time and although I really like my blog here, my beer blog never ceases to give me something to write about.

Well, tonight I put on the Rain Station CD "Stonedozer" thanks to a gentleman making a comment about "Rise" and it is nice to every now and again listen to this disc.  Jay and I have always talked about how hard this disc starts and how mellow it ends. It has the true Nobody Records "Heavy Mellow" sound.

Have a listen, leave a comment and support independent music!
Cheers!
