Looks like I did it again. Another rushed out, but satisfactory release from me, Peter. I changed the band name! What do you think? I think it sticks out a bit more than that other one. I'd love to hear your thoughts about that.
Hey, so this one has a bunch more original material on it. Well, one extra song. I don't know if I'm actually improving as a writer, or if my standards are just lowering. Probably the second one. Still though, 6ish songs in four months isn't that bad! And that doesn't even count the ones I didn't use! Go me, huh?
Anyway, I hope you enjoy this release at least a little bit. That is what I aim to do, after all. Entertain. Well, my goal here is really to gain some kind of validation from internet strangers, but entertainment does factor into that somewhere. Anyway, if you liked it, please tell me! I likely know you in real life, so just come up to me and tell me it's good. I'll know what you mean.
Anyway, thanks for listening! I'll be back again somewhere around May 20th, as promised. Here's to a productive 2017!
Good luck with it all,
P.S. Oh, and I almost forgot. Should our efforts fail and the apocalypse be on our doorstep within the next four months. I will go to my grave, swinging and kicking and screaming these words; "I didn't vote for him."
released January 21, 2017
Iceman: The Band is me, Peter, and my guitar Elizabeth. For this project, I had the assistance of my electric guitar Juno, and a Silvertone bass without a name. Pretty funny how I credit individual instruments as opposed to people, huh? God, that's fucking sad.
I used a number of samples on this EP. Not for anything creative, but I did use them. Here they all are:
~A section from the beginning of the middle of Episode 3 from The Secret Files by the Master Martian Broadcast Company
~Some clapping and light instrumentation from an ancient the Mountain Goats live recording
~Some noises from a TotheArk video called Decline
~And several noises from The Entertainment Sound cues pack by Cardboard Computer. I believe they were 06 - Nature Program, 07 - Drone 2, 01 - Distant Highway, and 13 - Distant Highway.
For further context, google it. I don't think anybody's going to come after me for this, but I'm pretty sure this is covered by fair use. If I'm wrong, and someone comes after me, I'll give them 100% the profits I make from this EP no questions asked.
As always, please do not pay for this album. You can if you want, but your father and I will be very disappointed in you.
Thanks for listening!
