Played in metal bands in high school (early 90's) covering mostly MetallicA off of the Black album, Lightning, Puppets and Justice. Branched out into underground and indie rock as grunge grew from out of nowhere. Jammed for a few years out of high school experimenting with many sounds. Joined The Real Diffs (math rock) in early 2001. The band ended in 2002 (about 1.5 year) and in 2003 I joined Life Like Hair (experimental indie). This band ended in 2005 when I joined Chief Beef (alt heavy post-rock). While in Chief Beef I was also drumming in El Oso Negro (americana) for about a year. Chief Beef lasted until March 2007. A few months later I joined Halema'uma'u in June. This band ended in October 2009. I tracked drums for all of these bands in various house, warehouse, pro and amateur recording studios. Some of those songs can be found on my s:///stewartalaniz page.

Transfer Student (instrumental)
Transfer Student (instrumental)This is a track I was inspired to write as an impulse I had to create something optimistic, fun and mid-tempo. Just something you can coast to.
ShineDebut and only record from Halema'uma'u. This was the last band I played in before leaving Arizona for California. The band is Tre Mykel Beaton, Jhon Quinitos and myself.
Track 03These songs were recorded during various times, in Jesse's room, where we also practiced. He lived with his friend Brian who use to help me out in the "creative" department. Some of these songs were solely recorded by Jesse. Some keyboard and synth parts were play by Dan and I, but most of it was Jesse. He was the brains of this band. It was awesome.
DrugdealerImagine someone making a drug deal at whatever time of day at any given place you can think of. Notice when the drug deal begins to notice someone is watching their deal from afar. Their eyes meet and the chase begins. It goes through many phases in less than a minute and quickly fades with immediate exhaustion. Recorded in Tempe, AZ. inside of a brick and metal warehouse, possibly with the swamp cooler going. We tried not to compromise our sound so we just played really loud.
