Ken | “s”
In Physical (live) (2010)
The studio version of this song came up on shuffle and I forgot I loved it. Never knew there was a live DVD for the album, tho knowing L’Arc I should have guessed!
The Waxing Moon
June 2012, I went up to Westfall Studios, with my band Sol Ardour. We spent 3 days in pre production, getting really comfortable with the songs we were going to record and the tones.
The guys at Westfall were great. They told us “we can’t promise perfection, but we’ll give you our all”. We stayed there for a week, slept on the couch, on the drums, on the floor next to amps, practicing and recording sun up sun down.
We planned to release this single, promote the heck out of it, with touring, music video and ads - but then ran into a money disaster shocking us all and we had to scramble up a new plan. This meant also pushing back the album, as there was no substantial fanbase to release to, and no money.
Last month, with money saved from shows, merch sales, and ingenuity, we filmed our first music video. The video is for our 3rd single, The Waxing Moon.
Our drummers Sion wrote the music for this song. His inspiration is “boss battle music” meets “goth rock”. He’s a big Uematsu fan. Shola, Sol Ardour’s singer wrote the lyrics. It’s about a number of things, but generally it’s about a period of change.
I hope you enjoy the video. I broke into an abandoned building in the middle of nowhere. At night. Using a knife. Even in the pitch black, when I showed the place to the guys, we agreed it was the perfect place for the feel of the song.
P.S. Check out the Youtube Hangout event for the video premiere. We had a blast.
L4D in Japan!
“A 5-map campaign set in various locations throughout Japan. Survivors start in Tokyo’s red light district, escaping to Kyoto’s Kiyomizu temple, before moving further into the mountains the next morning.”
Beautiful Armageddon It girl, give me all of your lovin’! <3
She was definitely the best one there.
Wish MTV would do a “Where Are They Now” for 80’s rock video chicks.
Side Effects (2013) meandered for the longest time but hit its stride in the last quarter. Left me with a nice smug grin on me face. :)
Now’s your chance to own hysteric media zone!
haku | everything but the love (2013)
Time for your regular dose of HaKU radness. They’ve made a habit of visually appealing videos, blending graphics and performance. This time around, they went all out graphic with the help of graphic designers TYMOTE, a.k.a the “Pirates of Design.”
“everything but the love” is off their mini-album wonderland, dropping June 5th. It’s also being used as the theme song for TBS Boxing. I’m not even kidding (watch the main vid). Ain’t no love in pummeling another human being for entertainment, I guess. This just doesn’t come across as an aggressive enough song for a boxing theme.
