New Track: Salaryman

12. November 2008 18:31 by Hamst3r in Tracks

 

 

 

 

Hey! :D

Got a new track for you here. The track is about the pencil-pushing wage-slaves of Japan who grind their lives away for their paycheck to the point that they have essentially no life outside of constant work.

If you check out Youtube you can see many videos of these salarymen in a complete daze, sleeping on the ground, futilely attempting to walk up the downwards escalator and so on. This is the common Japanese businessman.

This song is a somber trip in to comatose existence of one such salaryman. He has a cat, he likes pachinko, he has a couple fetishes and he’s been contemplating various methods of suicide. Yes, there are lyrics. :)

You can stream the track on THA Radio.

Or download the track:

Hamster Alliance – Salaryman.mp3

Also, here are the lyrics: THA-salaryman.txt

Enjoy!

New Track: Reprimand of the Eternal Watchers

23. August 2008 18:36 by Hamst3r in Tracks

I just completed the final touches on another new track. Feels like old times when I used to write a new track every day. :)

The track is called, Reprimand of the Eternal Watchers and it’s an epic orchestral track with bombastic brass, beautiful strings and heavy percussion. You know, my favorite mix of sounds. There’s also a piano and a Vangelis-inspired synth in there.

As always, you can stream the track on THA Radio.

Or download the track:

Hamster Alliance – Reprimand of the Eternal Watchers.mp3

I’ve started uploading my music to Youtube so that more people will hear it, starting with RotEW:

New Track: If Lost Fade Away

21. August 2008 18:38 by Hamst3r in Tracks

I’ve got something fresh here from THA. A brand new track – unlike any other! I hope you like sliding synths, guitar and super-phat bass. This is a really light pop-friendly track. A change of pace from the last few tracks. Always pushing forward in to different styles. :)

The track is called if (lost) { FadeAway(); } because I thought an emo and nerdy name would fit the tone of the track. Haha.

You can stream the track on THA Radio.

Or you can download the track with this link:

Hamster Alliance – If Lost Fade Away.mp3

Enjoy!

New Track: Chell's Revenge

Guess what? The freshness seal. It’s unbroken. That means this beat will be fresh when you open it. Mmm…delicious beats.

This is a “Remix” I’ve done for the Chell’s Revenge series of Portal maps by generalvivi. I’ve taken some of the dialogue from the first episode and put it to a kicking drum and bass beat.

Check it out:

Download (right click, save as)
