I’ll be out of town working for the rest of the weekend so I won’t have time to work on anything new or post on here. so I thought I would reblog this reminder to go download everything for free! I’m looking forward to getting back and having new material to post. I hope you are too.

The Past is Another Planet covers

"Look On Down From The Bridge" by Mazzy Star

nomoresorry's cover of “Fade Into You” inspired me to record my favorite Mazzy Star song.

"The Killing Moon" by Echo and The Bunnymen

as promised, here is my killing moon cover. now, I don’t want to tell you what to do… but if you’ve got a nice big pair of headphones or a large set of speakers nearby, this one works best loud.

Here is the latest round of homemade liner notes and lyrics for the final track on “Set Adrift”, and a personal favorite of mine -

All I Can Do

floating in silence
the airlock has ceased to perform
now the oxygen is lost
and gone away

it comes to me now
in the moments between sleep
and certain death
as the pressure builds
as the airwaves collapse
our code will fail me
and I’m afraid you’ll never know

I’m being honest with you

it’s all I can do
I swear it’s the truth
you’re all I can lose

update 9.4.14

The Killing Moon cover is coming along nicely. Most of it is recorded already, except for some acoustic guitars and vocals. After working 12 hours yesterday I stayed up late to begin mixing it and I’m excited for you to hear it. I probably won’t do any more recording on it today since I go into work in a little while, but I plan on finishing it tomorrow.

Tomorrow I will also try to finalize the arrangement for a new original song that I hope to have a demo version of recorded very soon.

Later today I’ll post another installment of homemade liner notes and lyrics.

Thanks for listening!

and as always,
please download everything I have for free at bandcamp or soundcloud

working on some keys for the Killing Moon cover and Reykja won’t stop chewing on my headphone chord.

cowstian-dior asked - "did you ever do a cover of killing moon??"

I didn’t! and I desperately want to! I’ve got the arrangement almost completely finished and I just need to find time to record it.

Hopefully I can get started on that tonight or this Friday. either way it will be very soon, I promise!

liaeire asked - "Why cant I find you on youtube? :("

I haven’t set up a youtube account for TPIAP yet because, unfortunately, there are no videos to post. I do have an idea for a video that I’d like to shoot for the song “Gentle (sun)” but that involves finding time to shoot it, and then learning how to edit video…

I can be pretty self-sufficient when it comes to writing/recording/mixing all these songs, but when it comes to video stuff I definitely need help. So if there’s anyone out there who feels video savvy and would like to help make some visual art to accompany any of these songs, let me know!

until then, I recommend turning off all the lights and looking at pictures from the hubble space telescope while listening. That’s kind of like a music video, right?
