Don't be turned off by the horrible album artwork!

Yes please, don't be scared away by the scary creepy image on your screen. This is one of the best jam sessions i've had the pleasure of participating in. Yeah, pretty much for the past 2 months or maybe all this year Eric, Jamie, and I have been sticking to our main instruments instead of rotating around goofing off on each other's axes. Eric is rocking his Epiphone guitar and a pretty sweet (borrowed) modular synth guitar rig outfitted with an overdrive/boost pedal that I built. Jamie played the amazing Novax CH7 prototype guitar/bass thing and I played my portable Traps drums drumkit and Paiste/Zildjian cymbals.  After the 2nd or 3rd track we took a break and I took some of the padding out of the kick drum to let it resonate a little more.

So check out "Squeegee" if you only have time for one tune. Otherwise if you can, listen to this while you're working on your computer or during your commute. All of the posts I put on soundcloud are public so you can download them and listen to them on your mp3 player.

Also check this out. Eric posted a rough mix of one of the tracks. I really like this because it's mixed very dry and in-your-face.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this jam. Sorry about the artwork.
