New Track: Swindler's Skank

16. January 2016 12:00 by Hamst3r in Tracks

There's something really alluring about Jazz, Blues and Folk music. It's just got a sort of magic to it that I love, and like with all music, I especially like when it comes with a twist. I have a real fondness for the music of Screamin' Jay Hawkins, Howlin' Wolf and Tom Waits. This is basically me trying something out in that playground.

What we've got here is some quite gravelly vocals about a roaming criminal atop a bouncy instrumental. It's got a catchy chorus too.

New Track: Explosive Heat Death

26. October 2015 16:55 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Ready to GET HYPE? You better be. Hyped up for mean guitar riffs and Latin piano! Err, I mean, for big Jazz brass and a saxophone solo! Or uh, a vaguely exotic sounding clarinet and a shotgun sound effect! Actually, just get ready for all of it, as it's all here in Explosive Heat Death.

Taking inspiration from stuff like Progressive Rock and Jazz, there's a lot going on in this one.

New Track: Sthaga

9. August 2015 15:00 by Hamst3r in Tracks

You know what I like? The music of 1997. Big Beat. Some of my favorite albums were released that year. The Prodigy's Fat of the Land, The Crystal Method's Vegas, The Chemical Brothers' Dig Your Own Hole.

Well, this new track is inspired by all that sort of stuff. Big Beat mixed with Indian sounds and themes. I tried to find a good mix between acoustic instruments and synths, so that the track wouldn't be dominated by either one.

New Track: Riders of Vengeance

22. July 2015 21:00 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Cowboys. Outlaws. Bandits. Gunslingers. Bounty Hunters. Rustlers. You know what I'm talking about. The Frontier. The Wild West. The Buttery Convocation. Okay, maybe not that last one.

Anyway, I like Westerns. I like Spaghetti Westerns. I like the iconic imagery evocative of the lawless western frontier. The Western setting has always been one I've enjoyed in film and music. The sound of the west is magical. "Riders of Vengeance" is my latest foray into that sound space.

Previous excursions include "Lonestar" and "The Stranger", both available on the music page of this site.

New Track: Lies The Trapper

11. June 2015 07:01 by Hamst3r in Tracks

In wait lies the trapper. Patient. Focused. Animal. A little metal ditty in the vein of some of my favorite weirdo bands, namely Mr.Bungle and Dog Fashion Disco. I like that sort of stuff, and I have occasionally pulled inspiration from that genre in the past, but I've never really done a whole track in that style.

Well, here you go. Metal + trumpets, saxophones, cuicas, bossa nova rhythms, sudden change-ups to smooth jazz, tuvan throat singing, and other such nonsense. Hopefully such sonic vacillation tickles you as much as it does me.
