Hello friends. The time has come and gone... kind of, for my annual Fall Music For Cloudplum mixtape. This marks the 3rd year in a row I have made a tape for my friends at Cloudplum and to share with you all.
The concept behind the mix series is based on music that reminds me of the Fall season. I would have to say the Fall is my favorite time of year no matter where I live, and my musical tastes tends to reflect that.
This year's mix is dedicated to Mark Linkous of Sparklehorse. He passed this Spring and the music world lost another genius.
So without further ado, here is FALL MUSIC FOR CLOUDPLUM 3!!!
I always like to contemplate this Newman tune after the Christmas lights have dimmed. Sure its a bit schmaltzy but this one always gets to me for some reason. Maybe it's the slamming changes, incidentally loose inspiration for the DX7 chords in this number:
To follow up Chris's post here's the latest "teaser" for the upcoming Win Win full length. They're giving me alota credit but there are some animations from Alex and Chris in here as well. Klassen also helped us shoot the title animations in the first teaser and is behind the fisheye lense in the second. Here are the other two:
Thanks to everyone for the warm response on these. Doing videos is part of how I started working on music with these guys and now we're all sort of doing both which has been a lot of fun. Expect more music AND video output from us in the near future.
This is a new video/commercial/video/thing by Ghostdad for ‘ReleaseRPM’ … The song is the lead single from our (WIN WIN) record due out in FEB. on Vice. It features Lizzie Bougatsos of the grupo Gang Gang Dance. The vocals where originally recorded for another song on the record. Its a pretty heavy dance song called ‘Not Too Late’ with a vocal sample and a SICK Casio SK-1 dog yelp. After trying to get the vocals to fit without much luck, we went back to the drawing board and figured out some new parts, and in turn a new song. ’Release RPM’ is the result.
PS: Father Ghost is about to release the next installment of his video "ads" for the record in the next few days. He will post it here first. The music for that one is a real nice album cut worked out exclusively by xxxchange. Stay tuned...

East Coast folks can catch me playing a couple of different times, if at all interested. I am pretty excited about all these gigs too, so looking forward to seeing some friends out.
First on Friday I will be DJing with two homies, Michna of Ghostly International fame + Them Jeans of Dim Mak fame. The party will be at The Cove in Williamsburg and should be a blast. Also down the street at Public Assembly Natalie Storm will be headlining Flashing Lights, so kill two birds and hop around.
Then on Saturday I will be heading to Philly to play alongside Dj Apt one of The Philadelphyinz. I have heard nothing about their parties in Philly and am so glad to be able to make it out. The theme for the night is Sex Machine apparently, so I hope that means we are getting funky.
