Renaissance Man :: Andrés Forecasts ‘Friendly Skies’

a4055830125_10

andrés is a man of many diverse interests and styles.  When I originally got to know him, it was via his Unusuals moniker and the unique production approach he took with his albums.  Over time, I’ve gotten to know him deeper via his radio exploits with Cosmic Grooves on KZSM Radio San Marcos, his vintage clothing ventures with BORDER PALACE VINTAGE, and a recent transition into the middle ground of beatmaking and singer/songwriterdom with his work under the name andrés.  Friendly Skies is a reflection on connection, a lament about what one feels when an opportunity for intimacy presents itself, and all you want to do is make things as easy and easy-going as possible.  Bonus shoutout to me on the artwork assist, inspired by the recent admiration and respect andrés has for Missy Elliot.  andrés is certainly carving out a niche for himself that the San Marcos scene hasn’t seen since the likes of Roger Sellers, but andrés (much like Roger) is a wholly unique individual, so it should be a journey worth watching for those lucky enough to witness the growth.

Sounds Of Ages :: Roger Sellers’ ‘Primitives’

Roger Sellers is not a DJ… that is basic information for those in the Austin area who spend any time out in about in the musical scene and have a set of eyes.  Roger is, however, an incredibly talented performer of incredibly dense electronic folk.  Words do not serve his musical synesthesia justice.  Fresh off of a crowd-funding surge, Primitives is now available for the public to support and enjoy.

from the digital desk of Roger Sellers:

“This album will be released in a steady progression. Here’s what I gon do: Starting from this Friday to Dec. 28th, I will release a brand new song to the public for free. You will have one week to download the song for free, in which time I will be writing an entirely new song to be released the Friday thereafter. By doing this, I will be writing the album as it is simultaneously being released. This will give the album a sense of true intuition to the listener. Remember, you will only have one week to download the songs for free so keep up…Im excited about this one.. it will be called “8 Songs” and will be officially done and released on Dec. 31, 2012.”
