A great song from TV On The Radio, going back, what, 10 years already? 15? Fuk!?!
When I grow up I’m going to be a famous music producer.
That didn’t happen, but lord knows I tried.
What about you?
Try, try again. Make it happen. Make it so.
Enjoy some 2merica, relevant as ever in this idiotic times.
then fade away….
My rock band ROAMING CRAZY burned out before finishing a whole album, but the 3 songs we knocked out are rock hard and worthy of fondling your eardrums daily.
They will soon be released in EP form, in MP3, CD, and Hi-Res!
11 years ago, Me and My Friends made some of music. Well we had been making it for years but we finally released something in 2005.
The magic of the internet allows it to still be available. This was the 1st 2MERICA LP, followed up by Sensors&Switches&Buttons in 2007, and the Mass Entertainment EP in 2012. The 3rd and 4th are both in production. 2MERICA is EVERYWHERE U R.
The person behind this website does a few other things that you might kindly check out:
21st century concept albums from 2MERICA:
ROAMING CRAZY. FOR REAL.
EZRAZ solo noodles.
This is all distributed by Collinwood Sun and produced at The Flux-Adel Recording Division.
A wise friend of mine use to say prove it.
WAY back I had an idea for an LP. It was a concept LP, or at least a narrative LP, which centered around 5 characters, each equally instructive of the others lives. I worked on the story for some time as the music was being constructed by my band 2MERICA nightly.
I chose to totally self-publish this, perhaps destroying it’s chances at commercial success. But whatever. The release timeline is horrible but we did 5 amazing works for the 5 characters and I plan on releasing them all even if it takes me another 10 years.
Using the internet single-release model, we’ve managed to release 3 of the 5 and I’ve begun another attempt at finishing 4&5.
Here’s 2MERICA doing 3/5’s of something I’m very proud of – Scherzo Elskorpion!
Best funk soul rhythm blues rock record out this year:
Landing On A Hundred
by Cody ChesnuTT
It was worth waiting 10 years for the follow-up to The Headphone Masterpiece. This one was definitely not made in Cody’s bedroom. Great material, great production, best album in years.
Get it in digital hi-res at HD Tracks or wherever you like to purchase music. This is independent greatness so no bootlegging this one jack.
Is 14 years long enough for a song to be called a classic? When you drop some true Ohio funk, sure why not.
Check out this non-LP release from Cinci’s Freekbass and Bootsy, doing the 2YK:
I’ve been digging through the stacks and have some great old Freekbass that I’m considering mixalixing one night.
If that happens I’ll have to post that up for yallz.
Update: 2016. Seeing these old Freekbass posts always reminds me of the great times and great people I’ve met through that crew. A few of them have already moved on past earth and it’s important to remember their greatness.
The funk will survive just like it always does… play on brotha!
/Toot my own horn
You may know if you read this blog that I do spend plenty of time making music, sometimes with others, sometimes by myself.
Pomoc is of the solo variety and has 20 tracks worth of Ezrazical experiences. Stylistically it ranges from neo-classical piano to electro dub reggae. It’s all ezraz some jaimeson a tiny bit of jesus and def all fluxadel.
Check it out in CD format (complete with artwork) or MP3 download and fan-up Ezraz on the Reverbnation profile.
Here’s a great story about a small record label in Brooklyn that was flooded by Hurricane Sandy. They decided to save their rare vinyl inventory with an army of volunteer record lovers, rubber gloves, and lots of dish soap.
The pollution-filled salt water from a nearby canal rose over 10 feet and made easy work of album covers and the rest of their warehouse. Everything electronic was ruined. Everything organic-based was rotted and stained.
Vinyl albums can hold out a bit longer, but mold and mildew will eventually grow in the grooves so it was decided if they were going to save the records, they needed to act fast.
Well done, Norton. So many things a storm destroys can be replaced and some of it wasn’t loved much in the first place. But in this case seeing thousands of rare and obscure pressings lay to rot would have been a sad event, given the wonders of dish soap on records.
Yeah yeah yeah I know my projects take forever to come out sometimes. I’ve heard that before. I try to make it worth the wait.
So there’s a new 2MERICA LP entitled “Mass Entertainment”, featuring 5 songs of fresh funky goodness, about to hit the interwebs in a couple of weeks. Yes finally, some new funk from the #1 funk band in Cleveland (look it up!!).
The title track is out exclusive on Jango Radio and it’s bumpin up the echarts, so click over to http://www.jango.com/music/2MERICA and give the thumbs up so we can keep on truckin…
Beautiful visual art done to one of my favorite songs by one of my favorite bands. Happy sunday!
Lots of politics and tech and life up here but through it all I keep the music spinning. We are the music makers and the music lovers.
Here’s just one of many vocal runs by 2MERICA’s chief vocalist 7M.
This dude is one of my favorite wrappers.
Want it need it
program you deleted
no need for cheating
when a heart’s not beating
No mouth or attitude
one plug one love
last chance connection
I hope you’ve been debugged
Raise the rug
crying buckets full of truth
my little sugar triangle
who’s feeling who?
— lyrics by Jaimeson Lowell from Who’s Feeling Who? on Sensors & Switches & Buttons by 2MERICA
Another winter week, another video. This one features all original artwork from the President of the Bored of Directors for 2MERIC@RP himself, Jaimeson “7m”:
You make me stay inside and quiet, mother nature and neighbors, and you get no bike and no drums. What’s a boy ‘sposed to do? Yes….. I do plenty of that. And that. But my baby brother and I can get visual too, all cramped up and quiet. But the buds are just below the surface, the buds are just below the surface.
It’s only Wednesday but it’s 61 degress and sunny on the Northside of 2MERICA, so it’s time for some rollerskating!
Check the moves on this video for our song Male Performance Issues.
WE HAD TO HIT THE REMIX button for some youtube love. More 2merica visualizations, this one featuring a hot track from the 2nd LP called “Extraordinary Rendition”.
Turn it up and let it rip:
They seem to do all of their music related business online, but when it comes to adding you to a playlist some still want a hard copy shipped to them regardless of what digital format you have already provided.
