From the APOD CD Looking Outside

The RPM Challenge required us to write, record, produce and create a CD from nothing, starting February 1st and have the whole thing complete and pressed as a CD by Feb 28.

We all went into the project with a gung-ho, 'we can do this easily' attitude. Then out of the blue Kevin got very sick with a bad case of double, tripple flu which was probably the terribly virulent strain that has been causing so many problems on Saturn for the last few months. Suffice to say that Kevin was ill and need to rest. HOWEVER, in his resting period, he managed to produce this soothing little ambient piece called Hammerhead.

Kevin constructed and played virtually everything on this piece and sent it to the APOD dropbox. Bryn took kevins mix, added some backing vox and bit crunched everything even more and sent it back. Kevin did what he thought was a final mix. However, Bryn had one more attempt and changed the mix yet again resulting in the version of hammerhead that you hear on the CD

love it
throwback new wave, reminds me of the B-52's or early Talking Heads, love the bass sound in the break between the chorus and verse, the muted ooh' backups, the chugging rhythm guitar. great stuff!

Hey guys,
I love this. Really quirky, dark, driving. Just what a guy needs to set off in the right direction. kevin should get sick more often if this is the shit he kicks out...LOL! This tune rocks. Love the simplicity of it. Cool reverb-ed machine/metallic noises and motor sounds. Fast DL!
