heartland99

My new LP “Heartland 99” is out today digitally and I’m excited to share it. 10 tracks of blasted out NEW AMERICAN MUSIC for driving on the highway and following your dreams, even when your back is against the wall. I’m really excited to share it, it is another notch in the freaked out American Music saga that I’m always yelling about and just another reason to keep fighting.

When making this record, I was thinking about all the real deal Nu Americana legends that I grew up worshipping and I wanted to transmit that feeling to the next level. I wanted to make something both timeless and of our era. Sometimes it’s hard to explain but between my music and the work I’m doing on THUNDER ZONE, I’m trying to develop my own American Pop Music And Culture Universe.

So CHECK IT OUT RIGHT HERE (it is also on Spotify and Itunes and all that shit) because I’m giving away this record for free/donation for the first month. Why not? There are no rules. I just want you to hear this thing, it’s not the first record I’ve ever done and it won’t be the last, but it’s an important part of the f’d up thing I’ve been fighting for since I was just a stupid kid. Check out some music videos from the record below!

THIS JULY I DID A SESSION FOR HEARTLAND ONLINE MUSIC STUDIO DAYTROTTER AND NOW IT IS SEEING THE LIGHT OF DAY. I HAD A LOT OF FUN DOING THIS SESSION, I THINK THE DAYTROTTER VERSION OF “EXPRESSWAY TO THE DARKNESS” IS ESPECIALLY SICK. GOT DEEP IN THE CUT WITH A TRUE PSYCHEDELIC SOUNDMAN AND BLEW IT OUT TO “FRANKIE TEARDROP” LEVELS OF ROCK AND ROLL MADNESS.

CHECK IT OUT RIGHT HERE KIDS. IF YOU AREN’T A MEMBER OF DAYTROTTER YOU CAN SIGN UP FOR A FREE TRIAL AND STREAM THE MOTHERFUCKER.

THIS WEEK THE INCOMPARABLE CHUCK D OF PUBLIC ENEMY PLAYED MY SONG “LIKE A RENEGADE” ON HIS RADIO SHOW “AND YOU DON’T STOP” WHICH AIRS ON WBAI 99.5 FM IN NEW YORK CITY AND ONLINE. I TOURED WITH PE IN 2010 AND IT WAS A LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE. CHUCK WAS VERY KIND TO ME AND FOR THAT I AM FOREVER IN DEBT. STILL A THRILL TO HEAR HIM SHOUT ME OUT IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM. THANKS FOR EVERYTHING, CHUCK.

ALSO, A MUST READ IS THIS LETTER (FOUND VIA CHUCK D’S TWITTER) THAT 2PAC SENT TO CHUCK D THAT NEVER MADE IT INTO CHUCK’S HANDS UNTIL AFTER 2PAC’S PASSING. PRETTY HEAVY/LEGENDARY/EMOTIONAL STUFF.

NETWORK AWESOME IS A COOL INTERNET TV STATION THAT CURATES FOOTAGE FROM YOUTUBE AND BEYOND TO CREATE A SICK AND ROBUST VIEWING EXPERIENCE. SO WHEN THEY REACHED OUT TO ME TO PROGRAM AN EPISODE OF THEIR LAUDED “LIVE MUSIC SHOW” (WHICH HAS BEEN IN THE PAST PROGRAMMED BY THE LIKES OF DAS RACIST AND DEATHBOMB ARC) YOU KNOW I HAD TO DO IT!

MY EPISODE IS JUST SOME STRAIGHT UP SLAMMIN’ AMERICAN MUSIC RANGING FROM ROCK AND ROLL TO RAP TO HEARTLAND FREAKOUTS AND BEYOND. MOMENTS IN TIME. FUCK MAN, SOMETIMES IT FEELS LIKE THIS MUSIC SHIT IS ALL I GOT (BESIDES THE ENERGY DRINK). WATCH IT ABOVE OR CHECK IT OUT AT NETWORK AWESOME RIGHT HERE.

LAST SUMMER I MADE TWO DIGI MIXTAPES (VOLUME ONE AND TWO) THAT TRY TO BREAK DOWN WHERE MY HEAD IS AT WITH THIS RAP ROCK SHIT, ESPECIALLY ON MY NEWEST LP “I DON’T WANNA GO INTO THE DARKNESS”. I CALLED THEM “HEARTLAND CLASSICS” BECAUSE THAT’S WHAT IT IS. TIMELESS AMERICAN MUSIC!

I’M TRYING TO CONNECT THE DOTS AND FOLLOW IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF MY HEROES. THERE IS A LONG HISTORY OF KIDS FREAKING OUT IN THE USA AND ALL I’M TRYING TO DO IS TAKE IT TO THE LOGICAL NEXT LEVEL. THESE MIXES ARE A BLUEPRINT FOR THE NEW STYLE. RAP. POP. SPRINGSTEEN. YOU FEEL ME? WELCOME TO THE THUNDER ZONE.

THEY WERE ORIGINALLY POSTED ON THE IMPOSE AND MISKA BLOGS AND YOU CAN GRAB THEM BELOW. NEVER SURRENDER FOREVER.
