Remember the Skywalker EP and 21st Century Bots? They are part of an overarching story which concludes in this newest EP, Voyager. I finished up most of this EP way back in last August but never got around to publishing it until now. It is a slightly different style from my more recent stuff, so it might not be quite what you expect.
ok so I realized that tomorrow is the 1 year anniversary of the Skywalker EP, so i hastily made a cover photo for its conclusion and it is ready to be released tomorrow. In the meantime you can hear the tracks here, I will take them off of SoundCloud once the release is done.
(it’s about time, most of these songs have been sitting on my computer since last August woopsh)
Astro Kid is a one-man, electronica band from Austin, Texas. The Skywalker EP is available at a name-your-own price basis. He’s done everything on his EP himself — from writing the songs, producing them, and even painting the image featured in the cover art. It’s refreshing to find such DIY ethic from a musician, but I’m sure Astro Kid is not unique in his approach. Bandcamp, the website from which you can download Astro Kid’s EP, hosts music from a variety of musicians. You’re bound to find an unsigned artist who offers their works for free or at least a reasonable price. The gap between musician and listener is being bridged, and it’s fantastic. Go out and explore Bandcamp. Support up and coming artists — they will be the future movers and shakers.
Just went back and opened the project file for this song in Ableton. It’s hard to believe that this song is nearly a year old - I was blown away by how meticulous the song is, if I do say so myself. Easily one of the most well-constructed songs I’ve ever done. Set a really high bar for myself that I don’t think I’ve quite reached recently.
