Release Day!

IHA Cover.JPGYep, that’s it. Release day. Today I release Irradiated Hamster Alert as Blue Alatar. The album represents about 8 years of work on-and-off, much of which took place this last year. The album is available on most music apps, (incl Spotify, Amazon Music, Deezer), as well as ones that I manage: ReverbNation and BandCamp. You can pay-what-you-like for the BandCamp download, including nothing. Seriously, have it for free if you want. But, also, if you want to send £700 that would be just fine.

Earlier today I hosted a live, online launch party where I talk-through some of the track details, as well as the album’s over-arching narrative. We go into detail with some of the production and instruments, thank everyone who was involved behind-the-scenes, all of which took about 3 hours. Oh, boy.

Not yet satisfied? Fine, more links:

Now, go download the album from BandCamp. That’s your call to action, I’m making it very clear.

Does Gear Matter?

Adam Neely recently uploaded this video entitled “Does Gear Matter?” It’s here, feel free to watch it before you watch mine, it’s a good video.

I agree with him entirely, but feel he stopped short of making a really crucial point. Crucial in my opinion anyway. The answer to “does gear matter?” is, in my opinion, “no, as long as it inspires you”
