Memorial Music Monday

It seems fitting somehow to present some recent sounds from members of Brown Cuts Neighbors on Memorial Day, since one of our main members – James Kopta – has been gone from us for over a decade. The work lives on, however, and many of our videos will be presented by Jason Martin as part of the New York Electronic Art Festival 2013 a month from now.

Starting with something short… This is a quick track I threw together on Sunday afternoon with my new birthday toy – a Korg Kaossilator.

An unexpected birthday present yesterday was the re-release of the Teen Beat Records tribute compilation Relax Brother, Relax from My Mean Magpie. Track 12 is a cover of Sexual Milkshake’s Bargaining with the Bubblebot (or possibly Peanutz – there is some confusion and room for debate here), titled simply Bargaining The Bubblebot and credited to nickname: Rebel, my post Brown Cuts Neighbors band that has been slowly working on releasing the first two records and polishing a third.

Finally, from Mr. Jason Martin, we have the title track from the 2010 very limited vinyl-only release Adirondack Power and Light, which is to receive a digital release later this year from a re-launched Wow Cool Records.
