Post chunkstyle "solo" album YES MAYHEM
I could have sworn I made a thread about this already, but I searched and searched and apparently the only thing I ever did was drop a couple of sideways mentions in the Home Recording thread.

ANYWAY, many of you know this already, but I'll just make a general announcement. I've been working on an album for a little while now, and it's getting pretty close to being done. All of the songs have all their primary instrumentation finished, and I'm just sort of frosting this cake to get it ready. I've been recording music doing my own one-man-band thing since the early 90s in addition to playing in bands. I feel like I'm pretty ok at bass, but I'm not super proficient at other instruments, and I HATE drum programming, so I asked a bunch of musician types I know to help me out. Basically, I've created my own little supergroup of people I've played with in the past (and present). It serves a number of purposes - it's a chance for me to hear some of my music played better than I can play it all by myself, but it's also kind of a love letter to all my former bandmates, regardless of whether or not they're featured on this album.

I've been keeping a (horribly irregular) blog about this at http://www.chunkstyle.net/blog (also linked in my sig), but I'll recap the high points here:

The core of my "band":
Me: bass, keyboards, guitar, percussion
Grant Henry (who?): guitar
Kevin Lawrence: drums
James Moats: vocals, guitar, percussion, programming

Featured guests include (but are not limited to)
Danimal (you know, that guy)
Xoc (if you don't know, you really really should)
Ryan8bit (ditto)
Julian Martlew (from my first band)
Pledger Fretwell (also from my first band)

and I hope to have a few more by the time this is all said and done.

I've posted a number of really rough work in progress mixes over on the blog, but I'll repost a few of them here:
Neatomatter (a rough mix of the newest "done" track)
Naked Fight
Reliable
Victim

So there's about 1/3 of the album. I hope to have it out by this summer, children permitting.

Naked fight is my favorite song on this album, forever. I find any excuse I can to sing it.

Neatomatter is instant hit, maybe it's because I have drunk some s**t but that song just rules, rest is amazing.
Is there going to be CD version? I'm highly interested
edit: whoops

You guys are all sweetie pies.

I plan on having a very limited CD run, but I don't know yet how limited or how runny. I will absolutely bandcamp the everliving s**t out it though. As a matter of fact, yesmayhem.bandcamp.com already exists, but I haven't put anything up there yet.

I would most definitely pay for a cd to be shipped to Australia. I don't care how much. Some music I just have to have a physical copy of.

I just updated my blog, but here's the TL,DR; version:

11 of 12 songs are done and mastered, the 12th should be done by next week. Here's another sneak peak: whore shoes

MORE XOC YES WHAT

I had a hard time mastering because I just kept f**king singing along with everything. It's so damn catchy.

This wobsite contains too much musicy goodness! Good thing we balanced it out with all the links in the "worst band" thread, or the final boss of the internet would have to block this site because it exceeds the secret "awesome bandwidth".
