14 songs from the Peter Joseph Head's "Status Update Songs" Project. The inspiration for "Status Update Songs" comes from Facebook and other services that use the short updates about what you are doing. "Status Update Songs" are the musical version of this and are thus short songs recorded rough and ready and on the fly. They are often about everyday stuff that happens. Some of them are funny some of them are poignant.
Most of the ones Peter has done have been recorded on an iphone, have taken about an hour all up to write, rehearse, record and post. Often they are recorded in unusual locations such as a forest, an airport, a beach or a train station.
This album features rerecord "deluxe" versions of the first 14 of these songs along with the original versions. The deluxe versions feature an cast of notable local Melbourne musicians including Neil Erenstrom & Chris Hung from Crayon Fields/Motifs, Jon Tjhia from ii/Alex and the Ramps, Ayumu Haitani from 4 Bonjours Parites/Tailor Made For A Small Room, Evan Meagher from The Actor Buddhists.
If your life is objectively boring but subjectively tumultuous then these songs are for you. Status Update Songs are what's at heart with what's at hand.
