WRONG NOTES: a blog of ear reverence

Wrong Notes collects posts on music, art, culture and fun stuff. Also included: news about the Ear Reverends.

Wing Drops, from Blood Drive

Following-up on my last post, included here is "Wing Drops", another early, rough mix instrumental from Blood Drive. Listen and enjoy!


Since starting work on Err or Man, the upcoming Ear Reverends' album, I've now ended the Practices series. I actually completed one more, last piece in the series, called "I Make Things" (using the voice of the artist Bre Pettis).

But I probably won't directly release the "I Make Things" song (I think I'll do something with it in an upcoming podcast).

Fortunately, the song started a conversation between Bre and me that has led to the Ear Reverends creating the theme music for Bre's new video series for Make magazine. More about that soon—I think the series launches next Tuesday (May 2nd)!


I've got a few other music projects happening beyond Err or Man, and I'll just have to wait until time is right to announce them.

But, I can mention now that we're getting close to starting construction on the new HereJam Studio (yay!). And, also, I'll be expanding the roster of HereJam Records to include at least one other, very neat, musician-artists, whose record(s) I am set to produce.


By the way, there's an Ear Reverends' My Space now. Since I don't have comments turned on here, if you are on My Space, add the Ear Reverends as a friend and leave us some comments there.

Wiper Away, and more to say

Hey! Guess what? Since my previous post, I started working on a totally new Ear Reverends' album.

This album is now shown under "forthcoming" on the home page—it's called Err or Man, and I've been busy writing and recoding demos (there are about 15 songs).


Before starting work on Err or Man, I made the tough decision to put on hold Blood Drive—the Ear Reverends' album that was past due. I needed a fresh start on something new.

So, I let go of Blood Drive and then found out that I still really like the album—so, there's a decent chance I'll come back to it and release in the future. But, Err or Man is the big focus right now.


I've released two early, rough, mixes of instrumentals from Blood Drive. The first, "Wiper Away", is included here (and I'll do another blog post for the second right away). Listen and enjoy.

These are pretty rough in various ways, but I wanted to have at least some of Blood Drive out there before Err or Man.


I am re-thinking how I use this blog, and am considering doing a more conventional "podcast" with some talking along with the music. This would be a way to tell you about what's happening in the process of creating Err or Man (and other projects), and letting you hear the work in progress.

So, keep an ear out here for more and new things. (Oh, and I'll be re-doing the site at some point too—I have a new design in the works ;-)
