New release of “Had” by Stereo Creeps

It was our big day! On May 22, 2020, Stereo Creeps released a new track “Had” that will be part of a whole new ep or album or something that we are currently working on. The song was actually recorded back in 2019 at Earwig. I did this whole massive tuning of Don Farwell’s house kit to get the right vibe for the song. It felt like a huge risk, and I hope that paid off. I mean, this is the first release of a studio recording with me in the band, so I absolutely had to get it right. I think we recorded 2 takes to tape, and called that good. If you listen closely, you’ll hear members of Suitcase on backing vox. We had a whole watch party to commemorate the release (can’t be embedded here), or just watch the video below.

Stereo Creeps – She Knows / It’s a secret

I’m pretty darned proud to announce the official release of a live performance of two brand new songs from Stereo Creeps. “She Knows” and “It’s a Secret” were recorded live in a room full of friends at the recent Earwig Sessions at Earwig Studio, and we decided that’s just how we’re going to release these songs. We recorded an EP earlier in the year, but that’s the real studio deal so it takes a moment to get it all packaged up and ready for release. Technically that EP was my first recording on the drums with Stereo Creeps (I appeared on the previous release Suck on theremin), but this is my debut released performance with the band and so IT’S MY BIG DAY! Sean Moe, Robert Dollarsign, and Mark Wardell – it’s a huge honor to be teaming up with you on rocking the f out of everything! Don Farwell and Lance Hofstad – thanks for putting lipstick on this pig with your audio and video genius! And of course thank YOU for your continued support of local music. More important than ever. NOW GO WATCH THIS THING WHY ARE YOU WAITING!

Spasmo

Spasmo played our first show the other day! We have another coming up on July 25th, and then our third is opening for Behold the Arctopus on August 3rd.

Good to be playing with Stuart Dahlquist again. Met him when I toured with Dama/Libra. Nathan Donnel is on vox. Marshall McLaughlin is on guitar. Stuart and Marshall were in Pink Muscles. Marshall’s written all the songs so far, but we’ll probably all contribute eventually.

CHAOS. Okay, here’s Adam Noble Bass’s video of us from our first night:

Stay tuned for a demo.
