So grab the album and throw down some cash if you wish.
Here’s a player so you can stream the entire album for free here (and on my page)

Thanks for all the support and love over the years!
Help me spread the word! Link this post or my bandcamp page to your friends.
It’s fun and easy.
Well maybe not very fun.
But it sure is simple.

Peace,
Chris

Track 8 is a fun little instrumental number I made on Fruity Loops and rulz. Track #9 is a silly rockin’ song i made sophomore year and it’s totally rockin’. Check em at the bandcamp page or listen here!



New track “Cobwebs” on Myspace!

Check out the new track “Cobwebs” from my forthcoming EP (now) entitled “Bayous” on my MYSPACE PAGE. This record was written and recorded during (and a bit before and after) my first year away at college in New Orleans. This song has to do with the struggle of holding on to relationships at home while being separated from them in a new and (in my case) captivating setting.
Hope you like it.
The album should be out very soon.
Get stoked!

Kisses,
chris

This song was one of my favorites that I made early on. The lyrics were written by the one and only Althea (of the Riff Tiffs) and I adapted it to music. I personally enjoy the squeaky bass drum pedal and in all honesty, the end of the song is one of my favorite parts of any song I’ve ever written (even though I only wrote the music) but still. Check it plzzz.

Kisses,
Chris



“Bayous” EP tracklist and info (NAME CHANGE!)

Today I got my wisdom teeth removed and it sucks.
I can’t sleep because of the silly pain that naturally came along with the surgery.
So today seemed like a great opportunity to finish up mixing my new EP that I wrote and recorded during this school year as well as during that crazy transition period at the end of last summer.
The EP was entitled “From Syrup to Po-boys” metaphorically (and codeine-induced, I might add) representing the move from my native city of Houston (the city of syrup) to the city where I just finished my first year of college: New Orleans (where po-boys flow like water). However, today I decided that this name sounds stupid. It’s now called the “Bayous” EP. The EP deals with the consistent dualism I encountered between homesickness with an attachment to friends and family, and loving-the-fuck out of my new environment and experiences. The songs are short and despite this being a ten song EP, it only clocks in at about twenty minutes.

Here’s the tracklist for the “From Syrup to Po-boys” “Bayous” EP:
1. +/-
2. Brainstormy (Feat. Tom Rooney)
3. Mean Song
4. I Bet You’re Riding Go Karts Pretty Often
5. Summer This Way, Summer That Way
6. Cobwebs
7. (Crank That)
8. 713/504
9. Take Pictures
10. Bonus Track: +/- (Version 2)

The album’s gonna drop soon in this month of May.
Stay on the lookout!

Kisses,
Chris

I know this song is a bit out of order, but it’s about me being 16 and serious but it now is quite silly.
Hope you enjoy it.

Here’s the latest track from the sporadically-updated 04-07 Mixtape entitled “Tin House”. This was the first time that I took excessive interest in electronic percussion and it ended up relatively lame. Either way, here’s an extraordinarily revealing tune in all it’s extraordinarily un-mastered splendor. ENJOY!
