New song: Midnight Beachboy

In Hidden Number, News on June 3, 2010 at 11:52 pm

We submit for your approval, a new song full of otherworldly delights.  Hitherforeto, is our most recently written song, though there are more that are yet to be released.

This could be considered to be a song that Josh contributed to the most significantly to date, and also the song where we see Josh first reaching his full creative momentum in the band since he joined 2 years ago.  As mentioned in previous posts, we’re very happy for his contributions of creativity and fudge squares.  On a personal note, these are some of my favorite lyrics.  Dean toiled over those guilded words, and then toiled even further in his laboratory, mixing the tracks down and making our backing vocals sound human.  Many of the songs we have been posting lately will appear in an upcoming vinyl release.

We hope you enjoy, and please let us know what you think about this song!

New song: Fanged 2 Deth

In Hidden Number, News on February 14, 2010 at 3:44 am

Greetings music lovers.  Come forth one and all, and seek out the new track “Fanged 2 Deth”.  It is within the electric tubes, if ye only just seek it out.  What do you think?

Fanged 2 Deth by hiddennumber

This was recorded at Magnets Large & Small, where creativity is shackled and starved, and then suddenly set free and engorged in a smorgasbord of meats and grains and hugs.



Update ~~ The song is now streaming on Last.fm.

Update ~~  Here are the lyrics, after the break:

New song ~ (we’ll never be) friends 4EvR

In Hidden Number, News on August 16, 2009 at 2:29 am

We just wanted to alert the intertubes that our new song “(we’ll never be) friends 4EvR” is ready for realtime streaming and gushing pleasures. Spread the word! This is an early pre-master version, recorded at our favorite studio Magnets Large & Small, but we want to start getting these in people’s hands asap. It’s been 2 years, right?  Additionally, you can find this song on iLike, Facebook, sonicbids, and (eventually) our main website [links to all of these are down at the very bottom of this blog]. 

This song is influenced by the usual amount of dread and loathing that we live in fear of, as usual.  Also note the use of Dean’s theramin, and the first major appearence of Josh in a Hidden Number recording.  Here is a picture by our friend, Winslow, as illustration.

(we'll never be) friends 4EvR

(we'll never be) friends 4EvR

So what do you think?  Do you like the direction we’re headed with this arrangement?

Update:  We’re now on SoundCloud ~

I just wanted to get the word out about our buddy Brooker’s podcast for his regular POST-grunge compilation of local Seattle music. In his words:

This podcast features songs by: Bacchus, Greenriver Thrillers, Hollywood Lightweights, The Keeper, Warning: Danger!, X’s For I’s, Hidden Number, Manos De Plata, Lozen, & Hearseburner.

Hidden Number live at the Jewel Box Theater (Rendezvous), March 5th, 2009, 10pm, $5, 21+
It’s been a while, but the tempura artichoke hearts just keep calling us back to the Jewel Box Theater.  That, and we get to chill with our buds

Smooth Sailing
My Bones and Organs

 We’ll be playing a slightly more honed version of our new song, Midnight Beachboy.  Josh wrote it, so he can stay in our band.

In other news, we hung out with Brooker (from POST-grunge) last night to celebrate his birthday party, and it’s pretty shocking how large our community of bands, friends, and fans is growing.  It’s clear that we need to put together some more compilations, because it’s getting confusing how many side projects we’re all involved in.  Is there any kind of compilation you want to see?
