Tour news and an Exclusive NEW song!

Hey-guyz
First off, I made a new song for the hell of it. It’s called “Carousel” and features the vocals of Pierre Michel. Just some background, Pierre was an original member of the group I’m in, The Mighty Jones. He passed away a while back and we never got to really record any of our music. I recently happened upon a song he made called “The mighty jones” and thought it would be cool to try and a new song around it. This is that. It’s slow, sad , dreamy and available to download. Check it out…

The Mighty Jones Album “Gone Long” is here!

tmjpiano
Man, this has been a long time coming. You guys have no idea.
Probably cause you don’t even know what I’m talking about. The Mighty Jones. This is a project I’ve been working on for what feels like forever. It started over ten years ago. It was me, Joanna Erdos (The midnight show), Jeremy Gibson (Sir Jarlsberg. The moon rabbits, PFAC) and Pierre Michelle (Guitarist and vocalist). All four of us were friends who worked in different kinds of music, who united to try to do something a little different. Right as the ball got rolling, tragedy struck and Pierre passed away due to a terribly unfortunate freak accident. We were all devastated and , obviously, any thought of making music was put on the back burner. A few years passed and Joanna and I felt we should try again. Jeremy was still down and we added the guitar prowess of Damien Paris (The giraffes and the guy who plays all the instruments on all my solo albums). So we began working and writing. We had some old songs we had done that were unfinished works but I gave them away here. These are those demos. Check them out. They’re rough and unmixed but this is where it all started.

“Blow my mind” features some vocals we had salvaged of Pierre’s and remains the only Mighty Jones track he ever got featured on.

Well, flash forward about 10 years and it’s finally time. Since then, we’ve added the endlessly talented Bay Li Mckeithan (The Skins) as a second vocalist to round out the group to 5 people. Due to scheduling, life and general disarray, our album has taken way longer than it has any right to take. BUT IT’S HERE. It’s called “Gone Long” (for obvious reasons) and it’s ten tracks of psych/soul hip hop with female vocals. I’m sure you can listen to it and draw some comparisons but, for me, I wouldn’t know where to start. It’s not Portishead. It’s not Fiona apple. It’s not the sneaker pimps (lol). But it’s something.
The album is available on bandcamp right now and will be available at many other digital outlets in the near future. But for now? Bandcamp is it. You can purchase it there or simply just stream it. I should say that we are putting this out 100% on our own. No label. No press. Nothing. This has been a complete labor of love and something all the members of the group took a lot of time and pride in. We hope you like it…And, if you do, spread the word cause that’s better than any blog write up we could ever ask for.

Or, if you’re more of  soundcloud kinda person…

On I-tunes:https://itunes.apple.com/album/id1064075021

It’s also on Spotify so go check it out however you listen to music!

 

It should also be noted that, while this album took forever to make and release, we’ve been working on new music for a while so a follow up won’t be that far behind. So, new shit is in the works!

Okay, thanks for listening and enjoy.

Here’s a compilation of remixes I’ve made

gift
One of my favorite things to do when I’ve got nothing else too important to work on is remix random songs. some old, some new, some completely out of left field.
Over the years I’ve done a bunch of these and given them away for free (cause I’m cool like that) but I figured it might be nice to put a bunch of them in a folder and give them all away at once. So, dig in…enjoy these random remixes I’ve made over the last 10 years or so.

1)A dream: Donny Hathaway
2)Lost and lookin’: Sam Cooke
3)Nobody’s fault: Nina SImone
4)Fidelity: Regina Spektor
5)Bitch better have my money: Rihanna
6)I can’t feel my face: The Weeknd
7)Classic man: Jidenna
8)Dead hands:The Skins
9)Hot knife: Fiona apple
10)Nina simone mash up
11)Sunny Smash and bash: Various artists
12)Yesterday is Here: Tom Waits

“Bells and Whistles” Limited edition red vinyl Repress!

0005994980_10

It’s been out of print for a while now but it is back, in limited numbers.
I had my newest album, “Bells and Whistles” repressed in a special red vinyl. There are only 500 copies. And you can only get it from one place. Bandcamp. It’s only $20 and it should go pretty quickly. So, get on that and order it!
https://blockheadnyc.bandcamp.com/album/bells-and-whistles
It’s a double vinyl and comes with a download code for a high quality digital version. Enjoy it!
It should also be added, people often ask me “How do i buy your music and you get the highest money %?” Outside of buying it from me directly at a show, Bandcamp it is. So, by getting this record from bandcamp, you’re helping your bro (me) out and that’s pretty cool of you.

New remix! Surrender the Spirit “Control”

Screen shot 2015-10-13 at 10.22.12 AM
I’ve been doing a lot of remixes lately. Most have been of pop songs that you probably think are silly. Well, today is a new day I recently got a chance to work with Brooklyn based group Surrender the spirit and remix their song “Control”. I’ve been friends with these two for a while and it was a pleasure to rework their already awesome song. Check it out! Something new!

If you’d like to check out their original work, you should do that! Right here…right now.
