WOES & HAIL MARY'S

​​
WOES & HAIL MARY'S is a collection of improvised love songs that intermingle 50's doo wap and hip hop sensibilities. The songs were recorded in Los Angeles straight to a small Lo-Fi recording system.  No one was allowed  to play an intstrument they knew how to play. In addition, songs had to be recorded within a few takes and with a single microphone

 

 

THE SLIPSHOD SWINGERS:

ORANGE LAMBORGHINI

​​
Orange Lamborghini, is a sonic landscape of heavy backbeats, discovery, and socio-political ruminations. A mixture of professional and Lo-Fi recordings, it traces an evening drive in Los Angeles - down the 101 and onto Hollywood Boulevard.

TRANSISTOR RADIO

​​
Transistor Radio, the latest record from the Swingers, was recorded in Seoul, Korea. It has K-Pop sensibilities, interlaced with a healthy dose of hip hop, punk, and classic rock.

POPS U, TRANSISTOR RADIO

The animated video for POPS U, the first single off of TRANSISTOR RADIO, is finally completed after weeks of hard work. I'd like to thank Mina Lee for putting so much time into helping me accomplish this. It was a great experience to learn Flash. I look forward to making more films with her.
