News from the Studio

Here's what's going on in my studio!

“Go Underneath” [video song] – Univox drum machine, Strymon El Capistan and blueSky

August 29, 2010    
State Shirt    

I recently got to borrow an old-school Univox drum machine. It’s strange and unique. Where else can you get volume sliders for Quijada, Guido AND Tambourine. Not only does it have patterns for Mambo, Rumba and Bossanova, but many others including Merinque, Beguine and Habanera. What more could you want? I felt like making some droning noise so I ran the Univox through my Strymon El Capistan and blueSky reverb pedals. I…    read more

When I’m not busy working on music, I occasionally take my Miata out to the racetrack. Here’s some of the laps from my June 2010 race at Buttonwillow Raceway. Out of 17 cars, I started 13th and finished 11th. Not too bad for a terrible race car driver! More on my illustrious racing career here!

We’re walking around, me and the realtor, looking at small yellow houses. I see one to the left that is a stucco California-style house and ask, “oh is that yours?” We then turn around to our right, and we walk up to this house for sale. The realtor grabs the info sheet from the for sale sign and says he can get more info from the seller. I look up and notice…    read more

For the remainder of 2010, all profits from the sale of my t-shirts, stickers and CDs will be donated to the National Wildlife Federation and the Nature Conservancy to aid in the gulf region rehabilitation / BP oil spill aftermath. British Petroleum and Halliburton can suck a giant bag of donkey balls. So why don’t you go ahead and buy a State Shirt cow t-shirt? How about a nice Los Fucking Angeles…    read more

Hey. I just finished recording a cover of “Souvenir” by OMD (Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark). I’d consider this mix a “beta” mix, but it’s pretty close. Listen below: [mp3j track=”Souvenir@/audio/unreleased/stateshirt_souvenir.mp3″ flip=”y”]   steal mp3 I haven’t created a music video for my cover version yet, but for the time being check out the original OMD video below.

Finish my song!

March 1, 2010    
State Shirt    

I started this song last week with hopes it would be the next SongFight winner! But I just can’t find the right way to finish this tune. I like that it’s mellow and relatively catchy but I just wasn’t really inspired to complete it. Maybe there’s something about it that you like? If so, please go ahead and grab the source files and finish it any way you’d like. Cut it up,…    read more
