Digital Noise Academy (update)

24th May 11 (Tue) Leave a comment

Ken Andrews posted a new blog with an update about Digital Noise Academy, his online collaboration with Charlotte Martin, Justin Meldal-Johnsen, Sharky Laguana, Tommy Walter, Fernando Sanchez, and Jordon Zadorozny.  His blog is annoyingly white text in a jpeg format… so, head on over to his blog site to read it (I ain’t about to type it up).

Digital Noise Academy (May 11, 2011)

There’s a new streaming song (“Thursday Night Party“) – the second and last free tune from the project.  Join the discussion about how to monetize the project; so it sees the light of day without being thieved.  The songs “Thursday Night Party” and “Melting Inside” can also be downloaded for free via links at http://www.digitalnoiseacademy.com/.

Ken Andrews is a crazy old man

9th May 11 (Mon) Leave a comment

Ken Andrews is a songwriting, producing, mixing genius.  He is a now a blogger… ya know… now that blogging has been out for 10+ years.  The “crazy old man” quote is from him…

I hope this new burst of info means something is coming soon from him.  Perhaps the Digital Noise Academy release that was rumored of 4-5 years ago?  Perhaps more from ON?  Perhaps another Year of the Rabbit?  Perhaps another Ken solo album?

What?  You don’t know who Ken Andrews is?  He’s the front-man for 90s rock group Failure, he’s done other side-projects (noted above), he produces & mixes (NIN, Beck, Tenacious D, Charlotte Martin, etc).  He’s friends with the Tool gents (has done videos and toured with them).  He’s married to the aforementioned singer-songwriter Charlotte Martin.  His music is rad.  Failure’s Fantastic Planet is one of the few perfect modern rock concept albums.

2010 anticipated albums

30th Dec 09 (Wed) Leave a comment

So, the year end and decade end recaps are in process (the monkeys I ordered are in the back room typing away) … I needed something to fill the gap… here are some artists who are expecting to release new material in 2010, all of which I’m looking forward to…




The Album Leaf‘s A Chorus of Storytellers, My Brightest Diamond‘s Shark Remixes box set, Go from Jónsi Birgisson of Sigur Rós, French singer Jeanne Cherhal‘s Charade, George Hrab‘s Trebuchet, 12 new albums from John Zorn, Mike Patton’s Mondo Cane and hopefully Crudo (if they’re both not put off due to Faith No More reunion touring), Derek Webb‘s Democracy Vol 1 (and he’s even recording with Caedmon’s Call for a 2010 release or two), guitar phenom Kaki King, maybe the Secret Chiefs 3 will finally release Book of Souls (it’s their “Chinese Democracy”), Eisley & Perma (a side project with Sherri from Eisley), Ellery from Cincinnati, Ty Tabor of King’s X, A.N.M. featuring Doug Pinnick of King’s X and Jimi Hazel of 24-7 Spyz, Ken Andrew and Co’s Digital Noise Academy, Trent Reznor’s just announced new Nine Inch Nails album, Silverchair are working on one, Radiohead are hitting the studio (maybe something out by year’s end), and… Ani DiFranco – I mean, it’s inevitable… right?

Plus many more great albums due out in 2010, I’m sure.

Digital Noise Academy is Melting Inside

16th Nov 09 (Mon) Leave a comment

So, the Digital Noise Academy dropped the “Los Angeles” from the front of their name… it’s been a while since there’s been any activity to report, but yesterday they posted their new official video for “Melting Inside“…

The DNA is Ken Andrews (coincidentally brought up in my Puscifer live show review from yesterday), Charlotte Martin (Ken’s wife), Justin Meldal-Johnsen, Sharky Laguana, Tommy Walter, Fernando Sanchez, and Jordon Zadorozny.  I hope this means there’s a DNA album on the way.  I think the last LADNA news was prior to Ken’s Secrets of the Lost Satellite CD (in early 2007).
