Matt Miller - Untitled - Music from Entitled by Bret Sarlouis

Recently Matt Miller composed a play score for a DIY play called "Entitled" by Brett Sarlouis, through (un)apologetic productions. While the play is long passed, there remains a studio version of the score that you can download for free on My Idea of Fun.

I've been told that the score is a great accompaniment for anyone who had the chance to see the performance. I unfortunately did not, however I will say the score stands very well on it's own, filled with idealized aspiration and inevitable heartbreak.

Here's a track from the score called "Untitled" this one has a more traditional song composition.

Matt Miller - Untitled

Download the release on My Idea of Fun and get The One and Only Matt Miller (and Friends) Present(s) The Vienna Noise Choir in Mid-Fi™ while you're at it.

Here's two tracks off of that, too.

Matt Miller - You Catch More Flies w/ $$$$$

Matt Miller - Dreaming Collective(ly)

An Updated Demo from Brandon Locher

Brandon Locher - Updated Demo

Last week, the ever-prolific Brandon Locher posted an update on My Idea of Fun 101 of that demo I posted about a few weeks ago. Seems like it's moving along quite well, we now get a chance to hear a new song about two minutes into the track. Listen to it above and check out more of his work on My Idea of Fun


Here's a new track from DUDES, it's called Happy Halloween, perhaps I should have waited 10 more days, but it's better you have the track by then. 


Recently I posted a video for the track "Why You Rappin De La Soul" go ahead and watch that again, below.

LAY BAC - "Hopen"

Here's a brand new track from LAY BAC called "Hopen" that you can download off of New Flooses.

Quixodelic Records

Last week I was turned onto Quixodelic Records over on the RCRC Facebook. According to the website Quixodelic Records is "...a net-label featuring DIY artists from all around the globe. We do everything a regular record label would do, from helping put the records together, to promoting them, and hosting them. The only thing we don’t do is make any money from the project as all our records are FREE for you to download. Collectively we have reached the conclusion that the most important thing about making music is that somebody hears it and hopefully likes it."

Awesome, right!?! I thought so too. It looks like Quixodelic has over 80 releases (all for free) and a little further research lead me to a few other collectives that are directly/indirectly involved with it, I'll throw those links down below.

Quixodelic Records
The Daydream Generation
Cozy Home Records

I'll mention again that everything on all four of those links is available for free, I've only checked out a few releases off of Quixodelic so far, and I'm digging what I've heard. Good thing there's a surplus of supplementary content. Check it out.
