Wholphin DVD

My friend Aaron asked me for some music for a project he was working on for Wholphin DVD magazine. I did about 5 minutes of music for a piece about the PEAR lab. The DVD is available now, so if you know where to get a copy of Wholphin No. 7, you can hear music by the Los Muchachos on part of the bonus disk that comes with the issue.

Depeche Mode cover

This guy on Metafilter asked me to do a cover of the Depeche Mode song, Personal Jesus. So, I did. You can download the song from the songs page.

Cover Album

I've finally got a semi long term project for the Los Muchachos: I'm doing an album of covers. I did a cover of "Are You Gonna Go My Way" a little while ago and it was pretty fun, so I decided to try and do an albums worth of covers. I'm still working on making a list of songs I want to do, but here's what I've got so far.

The general idea is to stick as close to the original as possible, but change one thing. And then play everything else is a style that is shitty. I'm still looking for ideas of songs to cover so if you have a suggestion, please email me.

New Studio

I moved. I'm now living right by the highway in Yoyogi which is significantly quieter than my last apartment -- which was not by a highway. The new apartment has more space than the old one which has allowed me to make a dedicated studio room. I'm pretty psyched about the new studio but am still busy with new apartment stuff so I haven't really gotten around to recording anything new. I want get back to recording soon, but still have a bunch of things left to do. Things like:

  • build shelves
  • move possessions from floor to shelves
  • rearrange furniture
  • stand in line for Krispy Kreme doughnuts
  • install some wood screws in places where wood screws are needed but aren't already installed
  • finish SketchUp model of new apartment
  • eat Krispy Kreme doughnuts
  • give away some guitars
  • fix the soundproofing on my electric drums

I also have a lot of TV watching to do in the upcoming weeks, but I'm not sure when I'll finally be able to get around to actually using my new studio, but I'm sure that once I get in there, what comes out will be fairly awesome.
