What is even going on in this video? You have Dark Moon Goths inducting Luke, a go kart race that leaves Peter decapitated, Tumblr employees working the concession stand, some awesome animation, and even a tease of Paul Robertson cats. The song is reckless, too!
You can cop the single for a buck and change at iTunes — the group’s new album, Endless Fantasy, drops this spring.
So I’m rereleasing my debut full-length for the new year because as it, and all of my releases, exist now, they are unfinished. It’ll be on bandcamp, but also my first physical release! So I have finished all of my songs, at least the ones worth finishing, and they are going on this record. My original Space Boyfriend EP was secretly b-sides for Bug Spray. I was just too excited to get something out. So I hope you look forward to the new Bug Spray. Or you’ll think I’m a George Lucas and hate it.
The Smashing Pumpkins’ “Today” covered by Anamanaguchi. This isn’t a full song unfortunately, just a rare Scott Pilgrim demo the chiptune group was asked to put together. Perhaps in an alternate world, there is a better, happier version of me listening to a completed version of the track.
Even if this cuts short, this is just the best — it makes today feel like the greatest day. There should be a song about that feeling.
This here is a preview/demo for a thing I wanna do. It’s up to you to tell me if this is a good idea or sounds like crap.
So I like tapes. Tapes are a fun kinesthetic experience that sound like garbage but are a lasting, physical activity that leaves you with a li’l bit more of a feeling like you’ve actually done something in the end. It’s a fun thing! And so what I wanna do is profess my love to my ghetto blaster that also happens to be a cassette recorder, and also have a personal private dance party with you, in your room or in your car or wherever you are.
I wanna make custom tapes and sell them for $10, where I perform any 6 of my songs, or however many can fit in 25 minutes, onto a tape, record it only once, straight through, and then send it to you. That copy of the tape, that performance, is uniquely yours, through all of my dumb banter and messups or whatever else I decide to do, like grab my tambourine and go HAM on one of my songs with it that I haven’t before, or play extended versions of songs that have already appeared on records that don’t have recordings yet. Every tape would be unique. If you didn’t know my songs well enough, I’d pick a few of my favorites for you. In the end, I will take a silver sharpie and doodle a space boyfriend onto it, number it, and sign it. You will be a proud owner of a unique Space Blaster Tape.
I think this is a fun idea. As you can hear, the sound quality isn’t fantastic. But if you are down with this idea, please let me know.
As of now, I only have 5 tapes to do a very small run with, and they’re only 10 minutes long, 5 minutes per side. So that’s about 1 song per side with a lil talking in between too. If you’d like one of those, I’d be happy to make you one for $4! But you can also wait for me to do the longer ones, if this turns out to be a good idea.
But as for now, just let me know if you think this is a good or bad idea! Would you be interested enough to pick one up? Is there anything else I could do to make it a more fun experience? Tell me what you think! Thank you! Bye!
