May be my favorite thing i’ve ever written.
I’m digging this new album we just finished. Mike is a big part of the reason why.
E&E-008 Cinematic Indie
The latest incarnation of our Eyeballs & Eardrums series is online now (coming soon to Spotify & iTunes).
Cinematic Indie is filled with heart wrenching and melancholy tracks perfectly suited for dramatic climaxes, rising to the challenge, overcoming odds, celebrating the human condition.
Fans of Explosions In The Sky, Sigur Ros, Augustana, Helios, The Fray, Copeland, The Album Leaf, Múm, and Volcano Choir should feel right at home with these emotionally compelling post-rock and indie soundtracks featuring long builds, developing atmospheres, and expansive but powerful sonic vistas.
We’re also pleased that we were able to have a few friends join us in the studio on this album, including Andrew Jonathan (vocals) and Tony Olla (guitar) of Northern Room [Spotify, iTunes], and Jon Mueller (drums) of Volcano Choir [Spotify, iTunes].
You can preview and download music here.
We release approximately 100 albums each year, and a few of them stand out as special, more memorable and personal than the others. This is one of those that I’m just a li’l more proud of. Check it out if you’re into this type of music… lovely stuff.
I’ll post Spotify and iTunes links next week when they’re live.
Today marks two years in business for us. Just the beginning. Thanks for being here early. :) Onward.
Been a wicked fast two years. Having a blast, working with great people, making some kickass sounds.
PLAY-001 Playlist vol. 1
The first volume in our new series of full song productions known as Playlist Production Music is filled with indie rock, a raucous barroom brawl, polished dance pop anthems, and edgy electropop bits.
You can preview and download tracks here, and listen on Spotify, or buy on iTunes.
We’re doing some really cool stuff in the Lab lately. Come check it out if you’re curious about music licensing, recording studios, or how a bunch of introverted stage-averse music geeks have found a way to play together nicely and make a living.
E&E-004 Timing Tension
The fourth and final launch album in our brand new Eyeballs & Eardrums catalog is primed to antagonize and ramp the tension in your production, through fearfully constructed (mostly) negative soundscapes and songs designed for use in advertising, reality programming, soundtracks, and video games.
Also released this past week:
Happy Friday the 13th!
I am impossibly proud of the work our kickass studio crew did in my recent absence… upon my return I simply had to weigh in on some details, lingering overdub bits, that final burnish. Oh, and a final vocal with Mike that I’m pretty stoked about (tracking this Monday).
Kyle, Matt, Mike, Tony… great job, boys. So much good music, I can’t wait to get this new series on the site.
TLL Scenes From The Studio #10
“To the artist there is never anything ugly in nature.” — Auguste Rodin
Our latest catalog of production music for visuals, Eyeballs + Eardrums, is full of emotive and eclectic homebrewed aural kickstarters. Sonic vibes for the theater in your mind, handcrafted with care right in our laboratories… we’re planning on releasing the first few volumes later this spring.

This was really fun to do- I’m really happy with how the song turned out (this is a shortened edit of it) and I learned a lot of things, shooting-wise, that I’ll do better next time.
Plus, I got to run around in the woods with friends, so, win.
My team of creative peoples is good… and it makes me happy that they’re good people, too.
