YES. John Davies, Datassette/Slakinov, has somewhat recently cleaned and rearranged his web-areas and Businessfunk is back (in case you didn’t grab it last time). Get ready to get motivated to your maximum capacity. Above, check out a music video for a Datassette track by David Hayes. And after you are done taking care of extremely urgent business, lapse into a state of intense concentration with musicForProgramming().
The world is cool. Think of something that would kick-ass, type it in your browser and there it is. Someone from Helsinki will have already made it and it is there for free to be jammin on. AudioSauna is a software synthesizer that you can play and record tracks within your browser, save songs in progress, and mixdown your latest club hits or elevator music or whatever you made. Check it out, plus check their blog.
Is there another cartoonist who is so super at being at being a cartoonist and a musician? I can think of some that do both but Archer is my main cartoonist/musician man. Then again, he’s stopped the comics flow a while ago hasn’t he. Will we ever see more Sof’ Boy? Two of my jams right here.
Since my last post about the Free Music Archive they have added a dedicated portal page for music on the archive that is available for use in your video/film/animation/podcast production. You need to check the specific license on each individual track to confirm exactly the usage permissible, but fortunately their updated search filtering allows you to search for the different flavors of permission that you are seeking (commercial use, modify, synch to video, podcast).
Internet, I am so on fire for U 2nite. Here is what I want from you to satisfy my desire, please do me a mashup of Hall and Oates “Maneater” with Bell Biv DeVoe’s “Poison” and not only will you be the new Dangermouse but when it makes me shake my rump on the dance floor I will send you free comics. Never trust a big butt and a smile.
You should be aware that Meathaus colleague Jim Campbell (aka Angry Jim) has a long-running rock music outfit called Paper Fleet. Check out their page out on this popular social networking site, and perhaps “like” it if that’s your kind of gig. And look at this flyer Jim drew for an upcoming Paper Fleet show at The Bell House Frontier Room in Brooklyn on May 3rd. I can joyfully attest to the fact that both Paper Fleet’s and Moonmen on the Moon, Man‘s aural excellence equals the visual excellence on display below.
