This week's most listened to song: An oldie

This spooky little song came from the waste-not-want-not end bit of a tape during my 4-track days. All the music is from my Casio MT-140 keyboard, voice recorded w/ an SM-58, all onto my Yamaha MT-120 cassette 4-track. Some of my fave old tunes were the less-the-one-minute experimental bits that came from those master tape cassette leftovers. This one is no exception, and seems to remain a listener fave. It's also downloadable (free!) via Soundcloud. Enjoy!

New EP out. Smashing fascism, one synth-pop song at a time.

Not untrue. I do what I must.

A tiny EP. 4 tracks totaling about 6 minutes and 40 seconds. The first track isn't really a song, it's the oppressive feeling of watching the world attack itself as an evil empire grows omnipresent. And it's only 26 seconds long. The other three are darkly oozing dancey synth-pop songs for humans and other monsters.    ::more text below the music::

These songs were born out of a meeting of danceable synthesizer love and extreme frustration about the state of the world over the last year. It all culminates with the ushering in of a terrible orange curse upon our people, hence my release date of January 20, 2017. My muse is... not amused. She's been around a lot in the past 14 months. We've been holed up, like mad scientist toymaker gardners, seeding, growing, building, testing new musics (and even an automaton or two.) However, the songs on this EP pushed their way up and out fast, and are, to me, teachers. I know a lot of composer/songwriters, etc, feel this way, and I have before... but now, quite surely. Casting an unapologetic light on what I see as a very dark time. Wrapped in dark electro-pop packages, delicious, poetic invitations to consider the state of the human world, and our place in it together.

Most of the sounds & songs you hear on this album were initially created using the Roland JD-Xi synthesizer. Sometimes further treated in production, not always. Shout out! I do love that little beast.

Apropos for the Halloween season: My song 'Crazy Maze' takes the listen-stat lead

Herertofore, 'At Large' & 'Towards Yonder Castle' stayed at the helm, but now, they have both been surpassed. Perfect all Hallow's Eve timing, it's Crazy Maze in at #1 most listened to thus far, of my solo tunes uploaded to Soundcloud. It's not much compared to many others, but... It keeps it's own momentum. Thank you to those who listen to & appreciate me. Love.

Herein this blog post lie my most season appropriate songs. Happy Halloween! ~Mita
