Chasing Ghosts :: Sixo Celebrates ‘Christmas Past’ With Ceschi

The concept of seasons being signal markers for human change and growth is not a new one… film, music and literature have all explored this story arc.  Ceschi, however, is known for his ability to tell a vivid tale, and over Sixo production, Christmas Past plays like the masterpiece it is.  The video only further drives home the emotions exploding from the song with it’s colorful and engaging elements.  Beautifully heavy.

Chance Encounters :: Sixo’s Masterpiece ‘The Odds of Free Will’ Now Available From Fake Four

a1403494251_10

I’m glad I’ve given this album a little bit of time before posting about it.  Sixo is always known to drop quality work, but seeing the concept and guest list for The Odds of Free Will had me rushing to biased positive judgement before I’d even heard the project.  Granted, most everyone on the album I’ve either played multiple shows with or know personally, so that was going to sway my thoughts.  So, I gave it a few listens, and I must say, this project really stands up in a year full of what’s been sure to be classic material.  I’m excited for more production based projects from Sixo, more Alligator Food, and more of whatever he conjures up.

Life Lessons :: ‘Eye Of The Needle’ Finds Sixo and Grace Park Collaborating Once More

Recent Fake Four signees Alligator Food surprised me in a major way when my friend Grace Park popped up on their debut project.  Cut to nearly a year later, and group member Sixo is preparing to drop a new project featuring his production and a long list of collaborators.  Lucky for us, Grace Park found her way onto Eye Of The Needle, and it’s quite the wonderful piece of music… sparse enough for Grace‘s voice to take hold, but a nice strong set of drums in the background to take us all by the hand and show us the way.  I am very curious about The Odds Of Free Will, and I am looking forward to hearing the finished album.

Big Arrival :: Alligator Food Makes A Major Debut

a1047406943_10

One of the best things about being involved in the independent music scene is watching mutual friends combine to make big steps on big projects.  Heir Max has been a friend and someone I have shared a number of stages with for quite a while.  Sixo and I have crossed paths on occasion, and we share a number of mutual friends.  The two of them have combined under the label Fake Four (the indie juggernaut run by my friend Ceschi) to form Alligator Food, a no-nonsense combination of hard beats and hard rhymes.  On some six degrees of separation action, my friend Grace Park left her songbird presence on one of the tracks for this EP.  The guys from Alligator Food were even nice enough to put together a lo-fi mindscramble of a video for G.O.Y.A., the lead single.
