Recent Influences...

...for those of you looking for something to listen to or do in the absence of new Mad Atlantic music.

So, a while ago I listed the influences on my DSOTM project. They were:

Battles
65daysofstatic
St. Vincent
Mogwai
The Flaming Lips
!!!
Elbow

Now, I have a different list for you:
Pet Slimmers of the Year
Kyuss
Red Fang
The Heavy Eyes
Spiritualized
The Glitch Mob (I know... Not very "rock." Just bear with it.)
Crippled Black Phoenix
Agalloch
Weedeater

If you do some research, you'll notice the trend has shifted from art-rock, post-rock, and psychedelia to stoner rock, sludge metal, prog rock, space rock, and heavy psych. These influences are slowly seeping their way into the music. I can guarantee that the next album (whenever it arrives; certainly not soon) will be drastically different from anything I've done.

Unfortunately, this new album will not be free like the last one. I'm a college student (currently unemployed) and I have to make money somehow!

I promise updates when I can get them out. I eventually want to take this new album to the stage and I'm calling on you all to be my street team! But, we'll cross that bridge when we get to it...

Cheers!
Mad Atlantic

DJ Hawken - "Hack Sound"/DJ sets

Just wanted to inform you that my glitch hop/dubstep side-project DJ Hawken is going smoothly and the first single is out!! It's available for free on Bandcamp.

Also, as an actual DJ, I also do my own sets, incorporating glitch hop, dubstep, abstract hip-hop, and house alongside my own original work, like the song above. If you're interested, please contact me.

Thanks! May your parties be many and exciting (and responsible...),

DJ Hawken
