I’ve recorded a couple of songs over the last two days by myself at home. Hope you all like them. I’ll probably add more songs soon.
Psychedelic Garage Folk
Head to http://theforeigncharacters.bandcamp.com/ where you can listen to the whole album and buy uncompressed audio files.
Bandcamp is a great site that not only sells mp3 files, but also FLAC and other high quality audio formats. Buyers can also “set their price” if they want to support the bands.
Today we’ve released our first full record, There They Go, on CDBaby. Soon it’ll be available from all major online stores and Spotify. It features 15 songs recorded early last year ranging from garage/punk to folk and psychedelic and sounds great.
Head to http://www.cdbaby.com/AlbumDetails.aspx?AlbumID=theforeigncharacters to buy it.
I’ll be playing a concert with my own songs plus some of the songs from The Foreign Characters. It’ll be mostly acoustic but I’ll use the loop pedal and electric guitar for some of the more psychedelic songs.
Reyes will sing a few songs with me, mostly folk covers we’ve been rehearsing together.

Today I played a kind of improvised acoustic concert on Mixlr which is a website that lets anyone produce and broadcast their own live radio shows. I’ll be giving more performaces there, not always related to the band, but I’ll do some more acoustic shows…
All the shows I play will be available here: http://mixlr.com/georgeforeign and you can subscribe to get a notice of future shows.
By the way, for those of you using iTunes to listen to podcasts, you can use the same link to subscribe…
We’ve also got copies on a really nice orange CD. Send us a message or ask us at our concerts if you want a copy.
We’ll be opening for The Ugly Beats, the great Garage/Power Pop band from Austin (Texas). You can listen to them at their myspace. They’re one of the most interesting bands currently active and they’ve got three amazing records out on Get Hip. They don’t come to Spain very often so this is a great chance that can’t be missed.
