Dan and Marty make a friend at the bar.

okay, so, on a monday night about a week ago, dan and marty were at the bar we live next to (a place we’re often wont to be…perhaps a little TOO wont), when our friend abraham the bearded bartender introduced us to a nice young man named ino. it soon came to light that ino also wrote songs, and before we knew it, abraham had witnessed a ‘monsterface industries’-sponsored contract between ino and marty/dan stating that, before 8pm the following day, ino would make a song for us, and we would make a song for him.

that’s just how we roll.

so here’s ours:

by the way, think of this as ‘monsterface minus jimmy’ (cuz he had to work. also known as ‘star-shirted guy the band’. also known as ‘hey where are the cool keyboard/trombone/harmony parts?, the band’). but the sweet lady-pipes you hear are none other than superstar jocelyn mackenzie (of pearl and the beard, hooray)

also by the way, we’re doing a ton of crazy stuff right now, and more on that very soon.

but this was fun and we wanted to share

ever your semi-loyal,
star-shirted guy the bandface

Are you ready for the Remix!

So, a few weeks ago, I got asked to make a remix by my good friend Z and by the power of the fates I got handed the vocal tracks to “Felix Felicis” by our boys Harry and the Potters.

I have never “remixed” anything before but I had just received this cool DS synthesizer made by Pixelh8 and I always wanted to try it so I figured I’d give it a shot.

On a side note the DS synth is AWESOME. You’ll hear more of it on “This is an Adventure.” Thank god I didn’t get that new toy until the album was 90% done, otherwise it would have been on every track on there.

Anyway first I tried doing a mashup. For those of you unfamiliar with mashups its when you take 2 or more song put them in a blender and pour out a cool and refreshing audio milk shake. After a few passes I realized that I’m not allowed to play with the blender.

So I went back to my DS synth and banged out this:

Felix Felicis (Dumbledore’s DS Mix)

I suggest you go to Hipster, Please! and check out the all the other cool mixes that people done. There’s more wrock and some geek rock and a bunch of nerd-core hip hop. Its pretty awesome.

BTW – the new UMF album is done, I listened to it at the gym yesterday. I think you guys will really like it. The CDs are being made as we speak and files are going to magical itunes land. We should have something for you guys in a few weeks.

okay back to tour planning!
