Blue-Eyed Son new single Don’t Love the World Too Much

Blue-Eyed Son was sitting in his boxers at 11:32 am on July 31st recording vocals for “Don’t Love The World Too Much”. 12 hours later he was still in his boxers and scrambling to finish the artwork before his deadline of midnight. He was in his boxers because at his current location, it was 98 degrees in the shade and that’s all he could wear without melting like butter. He had to peel himself off the chair when he finally finished. He thought, “It ain’t perfect…far from it…but then again, what is?”  But Blue-Eyed Son had done it. He had completed and published the 11th song of his 12 tracks in 12 months challenge. We hope he’s is drinking a cold beer now and relaxing. And we hope you enjoy his track.

Blue-Eyed Son release new single “Snowbird”


We’re excited to be releasing the new single “Snowbird” from Blue-Eyed Son today! Written and performed by Blue-eyed Son, aka Andrew Helprin, “Snowbird” was recorded in Portland and produced by Scott McPherson (Elliot Smith, Neil Finn, She and Him) who also played drums, percussion, piano and organ. “Snowbird” is the second release from Blue-eyed Son who is releasing a new track every month for a year. The series of tracks will be released as an album next year.

Available on iTunes

“Snowbird” follows last month’s release of the charming, internationally-created single “Further Ya Go” which features Helprin on vocals and guitar with Japanese guest vocalist CHAN-MIKA, Gnkosai on drums, Adachi “PANIC” Soichiro on guitar, Masashi Umeda on bass and produced by Ryoji Saito. The delightful and creative “Further Ya Go” video, which accompanied the single release, was filmed in Yokohamo, Japan, and Venice, CA, and directed by Ichikiro.

The “Snowbird” and “Further Ya Go” singles are the first new music from Blue-eyed Son since the 2013 release of the EP ‘Shadows on the Son’ which reveled in the spirit of alt-rock greats such as Wilco, Granddaddy and The Flaming Lips. After its release, Blue-eyed Son toured extensively and played more than 100 shows in the US and 5 shows in Japan making fans and friends around the world. Now, 2016 finds Blue-eyed Son’s Helprin writing and recording new songs for a full-length album (release date tba), playing select dates, surfing and enjoying time with his dogs.

Old Monk release new single “Volcanic Prisons”

Old Monk are concluding the year with ‘Volcanic Prisons’, the 4th and final track in their digital singles series. The new prog-punk mind-melting garage rocker was premiered by Big Takeover Magazine on Friday. Singer/guitarist, Josh Carrafa directed the  8-bit animated video for the song which is coming soon. He provides the back story:

One day I was thinking about how crazy volcanoes are. The fact that liquid earth shoots out of holes on the earth’s surface is amazing, really. Then I thought about how it would suck to be thrown in to the mouth of a volcano. Then I wrote a song about a sailor who crashes into an island and gets captured by robots who try and throw him into a volcano but he gets saved by animals at the last second.”
