52 Weeks Remix: “Consent”

WHAT’S UP RAVING THRONGS OF KF FANS.  I got my first unsolicited remix today (to be posted soon).  It was a thrilling experience which I would like to have over and over again, like eating my first bite-sized Reese’s peanut butter cup.  With that in mind, I have created stems for my most recent 52 Weeks track and made them available for download to anyone who wants to take a crack at remixing / mangling / re-interpreting it.   All I request is that you send me a copy and post it on some public forum like SoundCloud so I can link to it and sing your praises.

52 Weeks Of Ken #3: Parasite

Eeew, a bug.It’s late!  I know.  I was at SXSW and, if you have ever been, you’ll understand why I was unable to work on any music there.  The new & tardy song is called “Parasite” and is a poppy ditty about self-loathing, replete with tambourines, whistling and bridge possibly filched from one David Bowie.   There’s no knowing!  It was hastily assembled, so I apologize if the sound isn’t as smooth as the other recordings.  Now I’ve got to immediately head back to the studio and start working on song #4 since I’m off to PAX East with Frontalot on Wednesday.  No rest for the Ken!

Song #2: The Red Sea

WHAT IS ITSong number 2 is here, right on time.  By “right on time” I mean on Friday morning, which is now the official release schedule for 52WoK, which is the official acronym for this project.  The song is called “The Red Sea” and I have had it partially finished for something like eight years.  The structure and production style are heavily influenced by Beck’s “Sea Change” because damn, that is a fine album.  If people express interest, I’ll post the lyrics.  Otherwise I won’t!  You are warned.

52 Weeks Of Ken has begun!

Greetings fans, friends and spambots!  Today begins the “52 Weeks Of Ken” project, during which I will release one recording, every week, for 52 weeks.  Most will be new songs, some will be new recordings of previously unreleased material, and a few will be covers.  Everything will be released under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial license, which you can read about here.  What that means is that you’re free to do anything you want with the recordings except sell them or use them in a commercial context.  That means you, Glee. Eventually I will be making stems available for remixing and FLAC downloads for people with really sensitive ears.

The Unblinking Eye

Behold, a new video from Bay Area production team Ill Mondo featuring the lyrics and vocals of none other than yours truly. The song is called “The Unblinking Eye” and is NOT a cover of the Roger Taylor tune of which I was unaware until I searched YouTube for my song, which is much better.  That is my totally objective opinion.  The song is one of two featuring The Ken (that’s my new nickname, pass it on!) on Ill Mondo’s new album De Novo which was released yesterday and is available for free on the Circle Into Square website.  The other song is called Hayatta and features even creepier lyrics.  There are lots of other singers on there as well – check it out!
