It's new release day. The Carpentry E.P. is now available for you to enjoy, click on the releases section above and... it's a free download!
A small bit of background info about the E.P. In case you couldn't tell that's cult film director and composer John Carpenter (Halloween, The Fog, Escape From New York, The Thing) on the cover. I'm a huge fan of his movies and probably an even bigger fan of his film scores. Tempting as it was, I didn't want to do an album of Carpenter covers - that's already been done by the brilliant Zombie Zombie. Although I have thought about a covers album of Zombie Zombie plays John Carpenter, is that absurd or brilliant? I'm not sure yet.
The Carpentry E.P. is a collection of tracks that have a John Carpenter feel, or influence over them. It's not really intended to be imitating his style, more going for the same feeling and mood. Choosing similar sounds and rhythms to create the same atmosphere that his music inhabits. In other words, the music is Carpenter-y or… as I prefer, Carpentry!
Like I said above, it's a free download here, although it may show up in other places to download for a small fee (that's out of my control for now) It's my gift to you, so click that download button and I hope you like what you hear. What are you waiting for?
