When is the next EP coming out?

Because I am such a famous musician, I have been swimming in fan mail (which, I assure you, will all eventually be answered). 

Other than the death threats that I have received, I've noticed a common theme throughout all of these letters: when is your next EP coming out? You know, the one that you announced that you were working on ages ago. 

It's funny though. I really only posted that Facebook status in early March - just under a month ago. This is far from "ages ago". So fans, I would like to tell you to chill the fuck out. I promise you that I have been steadily working on a few tracks that sound nothing like each other. I am sure you will enjoy at least one of them. It's funny, actually: before starting this EP, I remembered one reviewer blasting Hole In My Sock for being all over the place, stylistically-speaking. At first, I wanted to take this criticism to heart. I won't lie: I cried for a week straight, recited this review to myself every night to try to see some good in it, and sort of wanted to die. Not that I was suicidal or anything, but I just didn't want to be alive anymore. So, Mr. Fiennes, I hope you are happy to know that you broke my heart and made me want to die. Thank you.

Even though I tried my very best to stick to one style, I couldn't. Maybe this is a part of me. Maybe I'm just the musician version of late, past-its-prime Entourage, when it couldn't decide if it wanted to be a comedy or a drama. 

As for the EP title, I have no idea. It is my belief that the title will come to me one day in a dream. I have had some very vivid dreams of late, which have featured torture, the Devil, ghosts, and Ellen DeGeneres. Soon a title will come.

So have I answered your question? Do you now know when the next EP is coming out? Perhaps you do, or perhaps you don't. Just know that whenever the EP comes out, your minds and ears will be blown hard.

Working on a track.

It's going to come out in a month or so. No title yet. Triplets. It's more electronic than my other tracks if that makes any sense. Purely electronic in the way the Alien Rooster was purely electronic. I also think there's a bit of rock in it.

I'm hoping it's rad.

Wind slapping but nothing to say.

I found out that I really enjoy sampling myself screaming. It's like cooking a raw chunk of meat and transforming it so that you can see it in a different light. I guess if it weren't for the effects I saturate my looped voice over, it'd still be raw.

Sometimes you have to turn away offers and wait for better ones. I learned that last month. Hope I don't regret it.

The EP.


My first EP, Hole In My Sock, will be released on January 15th.

The whole process of Hole In My Sock was very impromptu and loosey-goosey. To be totally honest, when I first recorded A carver's love song during the summer, I had no idea that it would end up one piece of a larger portrait. Until I recorded the third song, all the music I had produced up to that point was only meant to be experimental pieces on my part - mostly for fun, but also to show myself that I was improving as both a musician and a producer. I don't think it was until I discovered my "sound" when I really wanted to compile all the music into one EP. 

Like I mentioned, the whole journey was a process. A process that started, and really ended in my bedroom. I have a makeshift studio right beside my bed, and that is where all my recording took place.

I also must thank some people for being a massive help to me during the process of Hole In My Sock. Adam for playing bass, Eddie for the fantastic painting that I'm now using for the cover, Alyne for taking pictures of my stupid face, and all my friends who I made listen to my half-baked works-in-progress. They'll say it's their pleasure, but we'll both know that deep in their hearts, there is something that I may have permanently ruined. And for that I sincerely apologize. 

I'll have this posted everywhere, but because I'm an annoying shit, I will say it here too. Hole In My Sock will be available for purchase at all major online music stores (iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, etc.), Bandcamp, and streamable via Spotify. You can pay whatever you want with Bandcamp. I think I get to give away 100 free downloads or something. 

Hopefully this is one step towards something much, much bigger, but who knows? It's all a mystery.
