No Stranger Feeling is a music blog curated and edited by Tim, who currently resides in the greater San Francisco area. Formerly known as Samhain Sounds, the purpose of this site is to highlight notable independent music releases with a loose focus on experimental, psychedelic, and impressive D.I.Y. pop sounds.
Artists, feel free to continue sending me your sounds through email or Soundcloud. If you do not appreciate me sharing your music with the world, please let me know and I will take it down.
Listeners, please remember to support the artists you enjoy by purchasing their music/merch and attending their shows when they come to your town.
If you plan on being in NYC this summer, you will be a fool to miss this party. The D.I.T. festival will be taking place in Brooklyn, NY on June 22 and 23. In addition to Birthdays, the festival will be showcasing FMLY favorites such as Yohuna, Truman Peyote, Winks, and many more to be announced.
Whether or not you can make it out to FMLY Fest, feel free to snuggle up with your pizza pillow and zone out to the warped vocals on this birthday baby. Make a wish before you blow out the candles, and blow on your pizza before you eat it. Please be safe… when in doubt, put a fixie on it.
Sorry for being a stranger. Let’s get weird.
UPDATE:The track has been slightly tweaked with extra cheese for this release.
Back to the Future the Ride is the solo project of Brian Miller, who plays drums for the band Foot Village. On December 7, he will release a free solo album called Tron Legacy on his label Deathbomb Arc. Watch the psychedelic video for “CGI Fridays” above, complete with clunky CGI and avant-garde subtitles. Download the single “Full Moon on an Empty Planet” after the jump.
Brian cites inspiration from the original Tron movie in creating his own brand of futuristic drone:
When I saw the first trailers for the movie Tron Legacy, I was very excited. I think it looks beautiful and does exactly what the first one did: create a fairy tale about contemporary technology. That said, as the first film has moved further away from being an example of “the now”, my fascination with it has only grown. It is a movie I’ve watch many times each year since I was a child. Its depiction of technology has become both ancient and futuristic at the same time. The romanticism of the first Tron moves me like few other films do, and with my own version of the Tron Legacy soundtrack I am sharing my extended vision of that world. A counterpoint to what the film Tron Legacy must be. Back To The Future The Ride is an act conceived of from the get go as rudimentary futurism, time travel in the hands of everyone. My album, Tron Legacy, is a journey down an alternate time line in which the advancements of today’s world were made not only with yesterday’s technology, but with yesterday’s less commercialized, more home-grown love of the tools.
