VIDEOJAMZ #3 - Kuh-Lida + a peek behind the scenes Demo
2014-04-05

Fenn Macon: Video

Kuh-Lida: Music

This videojam has 2 Kuh-Lida songs on it, “Riding Shotgun In The Batmobile” and “Things I Have Done [iloveyouall]” from his album High Top Blazers. As you can see, I kind of set this one loose and watched what it came up with, which blew me away. Also, to get the process started, I had to fiddle with some stuff in my patch. I usually do this with touchOSC or with a separate monitor, but in keeping with Kuh-Lida’s Chicago roots, this was a quick and dirty jam.

Since Sixteen LP
2014-02-28

Fenn Macon: Producer

Since Sixteen is a collection of songs that I’ve written and rewritten over the past five years of my life. It is a record about the search for security, home, friends, a stable relationship, and a better mental state. These songs have been the closest thing I’ve ever kept to a journal, the lyrics come from mantras that continually ran through my head as I’ve been growing and trying to find my place in the world. I’d like to think that I have things figured out, but I’m sure that I’ll look back at these years and realize that I was wrong about everything. When I was sixteen, I was in a band. By the end of my freshman year of college, all of my peers and I were making music on a laptop. As we’ve been exploring the electronic music realm, I’ve found myself increasingly drawn to the music of my past, on long walks and secret drives listening to old mixtapes filled with Death Cab and Brand New songs. I’ve been trying to find a way to marry the two styles in some form and bring the songs I’ve been writing on various pianos and guitars to life. This album couldn’t have been made without everyone in my life, and I want to extend a special thanks to Ailey for singing on †rain†racks//ceme†eries, Since Sixteen, and Hopscotch, and also to Marina for singing on Let It Die. I also want to thank Luc Lacerte for his amazing work mastering the record, Paul Puiia for artwork, Jasper Boyd for engineering the vocals, everyone at Belgian Man Records, and all my friends and family for supporting and putting up with me.
