Right on icastico! I like that you are using the creative commons licensing. I see that you have a variety of formats to download each song in, is there a way to download the entire collection with one link?

I'm also curious what you have used for the electronic sounds. Thanks alot for sharing!

icastico said...

vaubu,

If you go to the link I provide to the album page, the download will be for the whole album...(it should say "download album")...just pick your preferred format.

FWIW, these sound WAY better in lossless formats than they do in MP3.

You can set your own price as appropriate (no minimum, but $$'s support future aboombong releases).

As for sounds...these are from a variety of sources (both digital and analog)...using top-secret aboombong processing techniques...

Sorry ;)

Looking forward to giving this a listen... Just get myself into a horizontal position, place the ashtray on my chest, and begin

Icastico,

Thanks for stopping by Eclectic Grooves so often and saying a few words. I wanted to return the favor and check out your site. It looks like this is all original music recorded by you and your friends. How awesome is that? I am definitely down with listening to this. In fact I am downloading something right now.


Since I know you are a frequent visitor, would you be interested in exchanging links with me. I am trying to build my readership, and would really appreciate it if you would be willing to add me to your fantastic assortment of links.

Best to you, Kevin

Thanks Kevin,

You've been added (can't believe I hadn't already done that...).

Anyone who hasn't checked out eclectic-grooves is missing out.

Thanks Marilyn...You are doing the lords work, as they say.

Hey man,

so you are doing a guitar album next time? you mean like acoustic or electric?

mick barr is probably a really bizarre role model. i'd find it hard to emulate his playing style without looking like a fool.

anyways good luck with your next record!

peace

Hello OV,

Very definitely electric...
I agree that Mike's style would be hard to emulate, but he certainly does make you think about the boundaries.

Ok, this is quite cool. When I first started listening to tracks 1 through 12 I thought to myself, "what is this?" Following in a heated second came the thought, "For some reason I am still listening to this and I am rather perplexed as to why." Then the final blow: "This is making me feel a certain way therefore it is art and I can relate > I like this a lot!!" Keep it going!!!

Ian,
That may be one of the best reviews I've received. Thanks.
