Frenetic Stereoear Here’s the twelfth song from the album “Frenetic Stereoear” titled “Cinder Bloc Party.”


Phaser + Wah + Fuzz + Echo… yeah, I like this guitar sound. The background audio is from the May 2007 Web414 Meeting. I had it handy on my hard drive, and needed some background noise, it fit the bill. I also like the cymbals (there’s a bunch of them) and the slow pace of the song, but the standout, for me, is the guitar.

The name? I dunno, I was thinking of “Cinder Block to the Head” (since I never got to use “C-stand to the Head”) and decided on “Cinder Bloc Party” instead. (I guess there is a band called Bloc Party but I’ve never heard of them.)

On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being awesome) I’ll give this song a 7. I dig it.


Frenetic Stereoear Here’s the eleventh song from the album “Frenetic Stereoear” titled “Operation Bomb Squad Assassins.”


This is probably my favorite song on the entire album. With this one I feel like it’s a complete song, and don’t listen to it thinking “It needs more!” so I’m actually happy. I even used it in a video I put out recently. As to the name? I don’t know where I came up with it, but I really like the sound of it.

I think at this point in the recording I hit a good groove, which is a shame, because we’re almost done… This also tells me I should start recording in January so by the time February rolls around I’ll be ready to track some good stuff.

On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being awesome) I’ll give this song a 9. Best song on the album!


Frenetic Stereoear Here’s the tenth song from the album “Frenetic Stereoear” titled “Fituation Normal.”


Fituation Normal has bass, some weird guitar sound/effects (but no real guitar playing) and very minimal drums… It’s slow, eerie, and atmospheric.

On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being awesome) I’ll give this song a 5. It’s really one of those things I think would work as an intro to a longer song… eventually.


Frenetic Stereoear Here’s the ninth song from the album “Frenetic Stereoear” titled “My Three Guns.”


This song is terrible. Really. Maybe not. I don’t really like it that much. I went back into it to re-work things once, and improved it slightly, but right now I really don’t care for it. It uses Club Dance Beat 050, mixed with fast loud guitars, which I thought would be a weird/funny juxtaposing of things. I guess it is. Maybe.

I actually do like the guitar sound used, and maybe the last 1/3rd of the song. I think it’s called “My Three Guns” because it has 3 guitar tracks.

On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being awesome) I’ll give this song a 3½. Ugh…


Here’s the eighth song from the album “Frenetic Stereoear” titled “Carmaggedeon San Diego.”


For this song I took “Vintage Drum Machine Pat 73″ and slowed it down… I do this sometimes to get away from the typical drum loop sound, by altering it somehow, hoping it’ll make it less “loopy.” The intro/outro and background noise is the engine from my car, which also influenced the name of the song.

Again, this song it really simple… probably too simple, and I dug the guitar sound I was getting with the previous song, so I stuck with that.

I noticed that some of these songs (style and title) remind me of the sort of stuff you’d hear from Shadowy Men On A Shadowy Planet or (to a much lesser extent) Man Or Astroman? and I’m OK with that, as I like both of them, and I really like surf music.

On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being awesome) I’ll give this song a 6, mainly because I really like the guitar “solo” part of the song.
