It’s a christmas miracle. Well no, actually it’s not. I’ve made yet another two tracks for xmas. I figure all my regular music will be forgotten to the ages but my mediocre xmas music will live forever as filler between the hundred times a day “Jingle Bell Rock” gets played.
This tiny EP is a 100% free download. Just enter “0” for a price.
Can’t get enough? Here’s all the Xmas/new years’ tracks I’ve made over the years.
This is the track that started it all:
“What about a snuggie that had xmas lights that played in sync with trans-siberian orchetsra?”
Oh hello there. You may recall that early in the year 2016 I put out an album called Crap Chute’s Concentrated to much critical acclaim. In years’ gone by I have followed the model of releasing one album of material every calendar year.
Well this year I do the unthinkable and I’m releasing a second album of new material. Twelve new tracks, fifty minutes of new music.
Okay, I hear you saying “but it’s a shorter album than usual, and the tracks aren’t twenty minutes long like they usually are”, and I don’t care, it still counts. Thus we have Crap Chute’s Canal Route.
You can get this album, like all my albums from http://stevencogswell.ca. If you use the super secret coupon code “everywhere” you can get some ridiculously stupid discount off the full price. Also you can use that code to get my full discography if aren’t lucky enough to own all my previous albums yet.
Yes friends, I said Freedom. Crap Chute’s Canal Route is released under a Creative Commons license. If you’re confused what this means, don’t worry too much about it, but I wrote a pretty complete explanation to help you through.
I haven’t made any new xmas music this year, because why bother. There’s still lots of old xmas music to not listen to. That’s the point of xmas music in the first place, isn’t it? To milk it for years to come.
The original snuggie-with-lights-that-flash-to-Trans-Siberian-orchestra track
You can get Crap Chute’s Box of Devils from stores like iTunes and Google Play, but if you want to download it your best option is through Bandcamp, as it’s cheaper and you get more choice in formats.
As a download from Bandcamp you get to download it in whatever stupid format you want for your FreeBSD 10.1 powered electric toothbrush or Linux Toenail Chip: Ogg Vorvis, FLAC, MP3, AAC, FBI, CIA, whatever, audio nerds.
In late 2011 I bought a stock Ibanez S420 guitar, which I’ve used for most of my musical projects since then. While I like the guitar I’ve always felt that I wasn’t happy with the stock pickups, the Ibanez INF1 and INF2. I can’t even articulate what it was I didn’t like about them. Maybe they were too boomy? Maybe they lacked definition? I don’t know, but I’d managed to convince myself I didn’t like them.
Fast forward to 2014, in order to deflect my increasing frustration with music I decided I would actually change the stock pickups out for something new. This led to the first problem: what to exchange them with?
