Upcoming Shows


Had one of those “this is all garbage, maybe I should bail on this album and start over fresh” musical panic attacks yesterday. So I think I’m right on track to release my second album around 2010.

Brad, please, your music is amazing. You’re all I’ve been listening to for the past month. I know how it is, though…I’m a part-time (sigh) singer myself, and I feel like I suck a lot of the time, even though people tell me I don’t. Send that album over to me and I’ll reassure you. :)

Does it help to know I’m insanely jealous of the new demos I’ve heard so far?

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been tempted to just chuck my own new record into the garbage bin. It’s always too pop/not pop enough/too folky/not folky enough/too weird/too normal/too inconsistent/too bland/too risky/too safe/ etc. forever infinity +1

Get it out there so you can move on to the next one. :)

Okay, yeah, I love all the demos. Put them in an album so I can buy it! :) :) :)

Yeah, I really hope you don’t chuck it. I love what I’ve heard so far and I’m looking forward to more.

Now you can look forward to the day you’ll listen to the same stuff and go “Hey, cool. This song is alright.”

Take your time, but 2010 is unacceptable. I say first do a check and make sure you are having fun. If you’re not, try to home in on the cause and try to fix it. For me it’s usually technical problems or lack of large blocks of time without distraction.

If you don’t release it soon, I will remove all your teeth in your sleep, stick them onto the ends of lolly sticks, draw faces on them and use them in a theatre of pain to MOCK YOU.

Which is a constructive way of saying “you’re great, don’t be a foo'”.

The demos you’ve released so far are most of my favorite songs.

in the throes of trying to get one together myself…so I HEAR ya. But….having been one of a few to have heard it all….I’m saying it’s teh rawk….don’t be drastic. Take a breather! It really is, as a body of work, really really good dude.

I’d rather you put out a lot of material-some good, some bad, although I haven’t found a “bad” song by you anyway- than put out a really good album every 5-7 years. It’s already been four years since your first album came out, and I think that’s too long to wait.

Brad on Mleh

Yeah I agree about the time length, I’m really hoping after this album’s done to start being more loose with the demos.
