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.

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

Update:  We’re now on SoundCloud ~

June retrospective

In Events, Hidden Number, Reviews, Shout Outs on June 28, 2009 at 4:38 pm

Okay, so everyone is telling us that our previous show at the Nectar show was one of the best sounding shows we’ve had, so congratulations to the sound guy!  And a huge thank you to everyone who stuck around to the very end.  And let’s thank Mauricio, who set the whole thing up.  I’m sure your faces were in agony from all the laughs preceding us; not to mention being substantially exhausted from Canadian funnyman Brad Brake, who somehow ended up being shirtless in a thong by the end of the show, right?  Were we at the same show?  I’m pretty sure that’s what I was seeing, and it hurt.  How does one follow up that kind of energy?  By having an excellent sound system, and a professional running it.  I’m voting for this as my favorite venue to play at to date, although sometimes it’s all about the moment.  Anyway, Sir Christian Staunts got us on video, so we’re going to see if we can’t just jam that straight into the tubes, if you do not mind our endulgence.   So keep your RSS feed readers hungry and alert.

For those of you who are wondering what the heck happened in the middle of the set, that was Joe singing a song that we reserve only when Dean is under the influence of the BSOD (i.e. UIBSOD).  So that was in fact three never before heard ditties:  Mesopotamia (B-52s), Don’t Come Around Here No More (Tom Petty), and Untitled (Joe Stuhff).

Since the show, we were informed by Jim of an elequent review of the show  that adds some context to the evening’s festivities.

It was a great cap, to a productive month.  We’ve knocked out a substantial amount of drum & bass tracks, and are one session away from posting Friends 4 Ever publicly, because we like you.

Upcoming show:  We are grabbing a shift along side My Bones and Organs at the Sunset,  Sunday July 19th.  It’s an early show, but that’s good because it’s about time that you got some sleep before work on Monday, you loitering hooligan.
