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.

Remixes as Album Promotion

How can you use remixes to promote an album or release?

Talking about some of my remixes; why I think they’re fun; how you can use them to promote an album or E.P.; how to commission a remix; how to find a producer to work with – all this and more!

This is the interview with Yvette from B-Side, as mentioned:

You can check out Theo Sayers’ remix of my recent single here, and Professor Elemental’s album on which I feature right here.

I Made A Music Video

Flippin’ heck, I made a music video! Hello Malcolm is a parody of indie music videos and contains as many cliches as we could find. The above video is all about the process and how the project came about.

Here is the completed music video, for your viewing pleasure. If you want to check out the full credits and extra info you can do so on StabbedPanda.com
