Audio Saturdays! New La Sudar single from THE DEBUSSY LOOPS

If you’re a follower of the Audio Saturdays column here, you know that for the past couple week’s we’ve been exploring the music of early 00s indie band Trousers. It was a lot of fun revisiting that old material, but now that the album is finished we’re kind of at a loss for what to do next. While we mull over some ideas, we’re going to go back to what got us here, at least for the time being.

“The Debussy Loops 6”

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re fully aware that the new La Sudar album, The Debussy Loops, is dropping on Tuesday (6-22-21). And right here is the single. It’s called The Debussy Loops 6. Some call it space elevator music. We don’t know. We’re glad it’s finished.

And don’t forget about our Songwriting Prompt Contest!! Entries are closing soon so get them in!!

Finally- here’s another picture of Astoria’s most beautiful cat, Maple. Yes, as a matter of fact, she does enjoy lying on the floor! She also loves eating, and sitting on the couch!

Audio Saturdays! Random Synth music!

If you’re a follower of the Audio Saturdays column here, you know that for the past couple week’s we’ve been exploring the music of early 00s indie band Trousers. It was a lot of fun revisiting that old material, but now that the album is finished we’re kind of at a loss for what to do next. While we mull over some ideas, we’re going to go back to what got us here, at least for the time being.

“squeeze”

We’re not quite ready to make the full announcement about the new la sudar music coming in June so here’s another random piece of music we found in our archives. It’s labeled “kraftwerk” but it’s obviously us just fucking around on our synth. It’s doesn’t sound anything like Kraftwerk either. Maybe from last year?

We have no idea if it’s worth listening to. Maybe you’ll let us know?

Also, here is another picture of our cat since everyone liked the one we posted last week.

Audio Saturdays! Songwriting Prompt Contest. Win 50 bucks!!

“undo”

Here’s something random I found on my phone. It’s pretty and minimalist and embryonic. From summer 2018ish. Never did anything with it, but maybe you can? Let’s make this another Audio Saturdays Songwriting Prompt contest.

I’m officially putting this acoustic snippet into the public domain. Best song using this music (either the music or the recording itself) gets $50 bucks.

Audio Saturdays! Songwriting Prompt contest #2

If you were around last weekend, you heard Todd Jackson’s great new single that he had submitted for the last Audio Saturdays! Songwriting Prompt Contest. We threw in the next prompt at the bottom of the page, but we’ve had a lot of interest so we figured it deserved its own post.

Also, we had a busy week! As a result, we were not able to get a proper Audio Saturdays! post up. So we figured we’d take this opportunity to make this a Thing and clarify the rules and guidelines.

  1. Using the audio prompt below, write a song or musical piece. It can be inspired by any aspect of the clip: the chords, the lyrics, the melody, the key, or something else.
  2. Submit the song to info@sunshineandwind.com by end-of-day Sunday February 21. When we check our email Monday 22, that’s it! No late entries will be accepted!
  3. Our staff will judge our favorite and pick a winner. The winner will be announced sometime that week and receive $50 and their own feature on a forthcoming “Audio Saturdays!” post.

That’s it! The prompt is below! It’s called only “B Minor Demo”
