    New Polyethylene Pet/+1 Siingle for PE members

    Hey there all,

    Since you're wondering, yes I am working on a new album for Dec/Jan (in spite of all pressures to not bother). The world being world-like. Still i'm doing it. Apparently, i still have things to say, goddamn it. I turned 66 last Wednesday. I need something to keep me from sliding into senility, eh?

    So far, so good though. This one is going to be a darkly funky rock thing. For those who know my work and/or give a crap, somewhat in the Soul Revolution mode, i think. It's surprisingly upbeat given my recent baseline of, you know, total despair

    And snarky AF (as the kids so rudely like to say). Yep. I'm grouchy lately

    BUT thus far it's actually upbeat (though the album is quite abstract). i've made this little two-song single just for our friends and fans here and elsewhere to enjoy its upbeat-ness. We can all use a little of that right now, i suspect.



    I hope it plays for you and feeds the beast.

    Love and light to one and all. Especially Milton Babbitt. Rest in peace, dude

    Love the drums on this - this tune reminds me of early 90's Bruce Hornsby. To me, that's a good thing!
    Coming September 1st - "Dean Watson Revisited"!

    Sounds great Kim.
    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    Thanks guys.

    Bruce Hornsby, eh? Really? Hmm. Cool, i do like him. I don't think of him as being quite so out and fusiony (he does try sometimes). But his writing and playing are excellent, so i'll take it as the compliment you mean

    He is very very good, please don't get me wrong. I've been compared to far less appropriate things, actually. And some perhaps, you know, more appropriate

    The more i listen - if you mean the first track, i could almost see how my vocal delivery is sort of Hornsby-like. I was going for more of a Gil Scott-Heron thing but Bruce goes there sometimes. Yes. His later albums circa Big <something> Face (which is a great album) has a tune with this sort of vibe. And more funky, imho. His playing on it is magnificent. A funky electric piano solo, irc. Thanks, that is high praise indeed.

    I do hope it brings some sunshine into your exciting, if often possibly dreary and sad days. I know it's helping me. Hearing positive music pour out of this weary soul is a godsend when it happens RARE AF LMFOBAO HAHAHA. It's only because B.Sue's out of town for a couple of weeks that i've been able to record so much. I have nothing better to do when i can't sleep and revert to studio hours.

    Seriously, B.Sue, my family, friends and the fans i have are a blessing. They've kept me sane and on spiritually focused path able to make the music you all CRAVE

    So, yeah. Thanks to all of you here

    Peace yodels,

    Kimara

    Ok, to be more specific it reminds me of this:

    Oh that is an excellent track. I can see the similarity in the vocal style, for sure. That whole album is fabulous. My favourite track is Rainbow's Cadillac.

    I'm glad you like this new thing, Dean. Thanks for the kind words

    Nice Kim, and thanks for sharing!

    Reminds me of a quarantined Thomas Dolby.

    Love the banjo, reminds me of Deliverance....only kidding!

    A Quarantined Thomas Dolby isn't too far off the mark either

    Thanks guys.

    If there were more interest, i'd share a preview of the full album here. It's not public anywhere yet. I used to do a PM group listening thing, inviting folks. Nowadays, i'm pretty sure people have better ways to spend their time, you know (family, work, not dying, making one's own music, not going nuts, etc).

    In any event, i do appreciate the love we get here. It helps keep us inspired to bother

    If anyone would like a sneak preview of the new album - due in Dec, if the world holds up - just PM me.

    Stay safe and sane,

    Kimara

    And since these threads actually seem like a great place to keep stuff secret, here is a link to the sneak preview i mentioned somewhere. People do have better things to do. Sheesh. I figured it would be silly to wait until anyone, you know, *asked* for it

    It'll hopefully be released on CD in December, as i said earlier. But it is ready and you can stream it now. Because you're special, eh?

    So here is a private stream (not publicised) you can share it discreetly if you, in fact, know other wierdos who might dig it's wild avant-funkiness

    Polyethylene Pet/+1 - The Masks We Will Wear

    As usual, click on the cover splash image to get inside to the player, credits and all that jizzle.

    It's very different from what the EP "single" might lead one to believe. It's a PP/+1 "joint", for those of you who might understand what that means. But maybe won't clear the room as fast as some do. This one's got a beat in spots. "You can dance to (some of) it, Dick. I give it a 10!"

    Mostly, it is rather abstract and "on the new music tip" but i think you "weirdos" here might get into it. Many of you on PE - well, among the few here possibly - do know my work. This one shouldn't be too shocking in its abstraction. It is surprisingly tuneful for all of that though. We do try. I'd be curious to hear how it affected anyone who checks it out. Hopefully, it will bring a smile, maybe a tear, and a spring (and autumn) to your step

    Virtual type warm greetings and well wishes to one and all here,

    Kimara (and B.Sue by proxy)

    Thanks, Kim! I really enjoyed these tunes. Great groove, drums, keyboard playing and the multi-tracked vocals sound really good! The blunt, throw up your hands at human folly lyrics in the second tune made me laugh. It's a good release in these sequestered times.

    Let the lovemaking commence!
