DumpTruck – Grungy Royalty-Free Sampler by BigAssRobot

Been a while, I know. But hey, life and stuff. So, this new song DumpTruck was actually completed a few weeks ago, and by “completed” I mean we just abandoned it as is. Made the mistake of really really liking it… obsession, that sort of thing … makes it hard to finish.

Anyway, DumpTruck is a swinging … er, lumbering tune that just begged for some noise, like old machinery, rusty metal, stuff like that.  Guitars too. And of course, the first thing that comes to mind in that context is old-school square-wave synth … right? Well, this is a groovy tune that we like a lot, so after that … not much else.

And yes, that’s GTA San Andreas PS2, shot with handheld cam ’cause we were too lazy to walk the 30  feet to the tripod.  And too lazy to find an actual dumptruck.  But damn, shooting down a helicopter…

Dumptruck: An Afternoon NoiseBite

Here’s a riff that I ripped from a prominent television commercial, then changed the speed … and the rhythm… and the notes, making it of course a totally different song.  Uber-rough sampler with only the idea down, no real tracks.  Pretty sure there will be lots of noise and clanging and crashing involved in the end result. Called it Dumptruck to force the commitment. Noise is good.

Party on…, and stuff.
