Smooth, Trippy, and New! The music from "The Bad Album" is purely instrumental and the styles fall somewhere near Beck, Tortoise, Ween, DJ Shadow, Enon or the music behind some strange movie. The cd can be extremely different and quirky at times, but is more about groove, songwriting, and sonic experimentation. The album gets its sound by combining computer sampling with live instruments and touches upon what is possible with the enormous flexibility that comes with sampling and recording music on the computer. It doesn't stop there however. On this album there are live drums, guitar, bass, keyboards, and even a little accordian.
So, what's the musical direction look like for the next release? "For the next cd I definitely want to capture a lot more live performance… and there will definitely be more computer manipulation… and joining a 60's surf cover band on the drums will certainly have an influence… but what it really ends up being will be a surprise even to me. It's going to be called Hammer & Arm"
