No, I do like his music though and would go if he came.

Thanks for the link! I had never heard of Shigeto, but I am now going to check out more stuff by him, inspiring drumming and seems like a cool humble guy. I love that style drumming, amazing hi hat work

Thanks for sharing this, makes me look at them a it differently now...I'll have to check out more. Thanks!

I did check this out this morning, I can't get into it. I much prefer your track to this. I'm one of the only ones who doesn't get this band, I have heard so many big musicians talk about them and I know they have a huge audience, I just can't find one thing I like in their songs. Your track finished will be much more interesting to my ears I'm sure

Singer is bass player for Dale Ernhart jr jr. The 2 hollow and akimbo guys were also in Absofacto and Mason Proper

Saw Hollow and Akimbo the other night, in AnnArbor and they were amazing (especially for a 3pc). Went into both of the popular music stores in Ann Arbor ,were they are from, and the owners had never heard of them. Crazy, also their videos online have very few views and thy barely have a website, cd came out in Feb. I'm surprised they are not way bigger than they are, seems to be no push for them.

I'm super impressed! Sounds 10x better than the new releases I shuffle through every Tuesday morning on itunes. If I came across this, finished with some cool drums, I might buy this. Not sure I'll have time to contribute, but wish I could. Thanks for sharing!

I'd almost fly down so that I could be this for your first listen!!!

jonaswildman  ·  1988 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: The Mars Volta- Roulette Dares (The Haunt Of)

Yes! Maybe even go in chronological order (tremulant Ep, Deloused then Francis the Mute). No.....start with Deloused! Put on some headphones and listen to the amazing notes/ chords being played (not even sure those notes are on my guitar), the salsa, jazz, fusion drumming, the ridiculous bass lines (Flea) and the organ/ piano!!!

jonaswildman  ·  1988 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: The Mars Volta- Roulette Dares (The Haunt Of)

Oh and I originally came upon Omar and Cedric because Flea and John Frisciante had been talking about how their minds were blown by these two guys. One last thing Rick Rubin produced Deloused (first album) as well.

jonaswildman  ·  1988 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: The Mars Volta- Roulette Dares (The Haunt Of)

By far. I could talk for hours about how much I love this group, and their prior group. This band opened my mind to rythms, dynamics, colors and moods more than anything, up to them and since. My wife and I flew to NY for thre nights to see them play 2 nights at the Roseland Ballroom (2005). We waited in the alley behind the venue until 2 in the morning to meet Jon Theodore (drummer) and Juan (bass). My music sounds nothing like theirs, but in my mind I hear their influence throughout it. Flea played bass on every song on their first album, john frusciante played guitar on several tracks off of that same album (Deloused), Fania Allstars pianist (also 60/70's) played piano on their second album, Ikey Owens (their pianist) now plays with Jack White, jon Thoedore (their drummer) went on to play drums for Zach De La Rocha in One Day As A Lion and now Jon plays drums for Quenns of the Stone Age, every player was so talented. Deloused is my quintessential record and I never go more than a month or so without revisiting it, thanks Steve for getting me fired up and for giving me a moment to talk about them!!!

Would love to thenewgreen but heading out of town on Wednesday, and will be pretty busy up to then. Would love to though, it would be fun to play drums over So Glad You Came.

Thanks T-Dog for the kind words! Bass sounds good!

One of my favorite songs, just re bought this song not long ago!

Wow, thanks for sharing this. I had not heard of him, I like it. Has he been around forever? thenewgreen

I like this thenewgreen, never heard them before. Thanks!

Hey Delta, as thenewgreen mentioned I have a fair amount of songs/ song parts recorded and have been at it for 17 years or so. I think a passion for music is a good start towards creating it. When I was 15 I got an acoustic (strings were really high and it hurt to play) and every day I would sit and try to play Cure, Smashing Pumpkins and 70's tunes. Five years later I got a four track, a snare and a basic vocal mic, that I still use for my drums. Like thenewgreen, I would just experiment with my equipment, I would use my voice to make cymbal sounds, I would hit allen renches together to get hi pitch sounds and I would also use my acoustic as a drum. I was so excited to record and I was so obsessed with music that I recorded everday. I would write originals that sounded like the bands I was into. Writing in the style of your heroes will only make you better and soon you will find your own sound. For me that took 10 years. Within my first years of recording though I shared my stuff only with my parents and brother and no one else. My recordings were mine and I was happy to be the only one who heard them. I created music to fulfill and satisfy my own mind and I think thats a good way to approach it. Get good at your instrument/ instruments, experiment with your recording equipment, mimic a style/ styles , find your sound and share! For me, this journey with creating and recording music has taken 17 years, from the time I got my four track recorder until the time I first shared my music with someone outside my family. Record music to amuse yourself and not to share and I really do feel you will find your sound! Stick with it and I hope to one day hear your music!

I'm impressed with the drums Steve! Keep them, they might be off a bit here and there but.... their worth keeping I think. Nice work!

Steve, I would possibly change the cymbal hits from every 3 seconds to 6 (so skip a time) or maybe not have them at all. I focused on them and I think my focus indicates they shouldn't be there, who knows. I tried a similar drum beat a few times and kept going back to a straight forward beat that let the music stand out, rather than the drums trying to help the music stand out/ have dynamics (if this makes sense). I like the kick drum at the 1:08 mark (especially with the shaker accompanying it).
