SEEKINGBand to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums, Keyboard.
I am a guitarist/songwriter. My default music is a unique blend of surfy post-punk, which can be heard in my demo here: thebugouts.
That said, I'm interested in branching out into more progressive, psychedelic, and electronic directions.
My overall style can be best heard through the music I have on and here, but in short, my rhythm is choppy staccato and triads like early Talking Heads and XTC, and my lead parts have a strong surf influence.

It's Alive Track number: 1 Year: 2014 Album: Six Songs For the End of the World, Pt.1 Genre: Punk
This was written to be an opener, and mostly in the shower before work. It's about the world's unluckiest band playing a show in a foreign city during an alien invasion.
The Stars Have Aligned
The Stars Have Aligned Track number: 2 Year: 2014 Album: Six Songs For the End of the World, Pt.1 Genre: Punk
On the surface, this is a song about a man's failure to stop the summoning of an ancient demon. Below that, it's a song about throwing away love on a fruitless pursuit. The idea behind Six Songs... was to get six of the dozen and counting songs I wrote for this project out to the world, and show the range I was shooting for in this particular project. This one shows the least punk end of the spectrum.
Do Not Press
Do Not Press Track number: 3 Year: 2014 Album: Six Songs For the End of the World, Pt.1 Genre: Punk
This is my favorite of the bunch, a surfy roller coaster about bringing on the end of the world because of sheer occupational boredom. I get a little proggy every now and again, and this song is a good example of that. It's written in five distinct parts: the daydream/setup, the action, the rant, the reflection/solo, and the final realization. This was completely unintentional at the time, and borne completely from not knowing how to end the song until it was finished.
