George Hrab :: Trebuchet

21st Jun 10 (Mon) Leave a comment

George Hrab‘s 6th album, Trebuchet, is now officially out.  It’s available in its entirety on his podcast feed (actually many science & skeptical thinking podcasts’ feeds)…

Geologic Podcast #170 (the whole album)

Buy the physical CD or mp3 from CDBaby.  It’s also available on iTunes, but I think CDBaby is a better company, in the long run.  Support indie music!

Twitter Concerto #1

25th Oct 09 (Sun) 2 comments

George Hrab puts out the best almost hour of new content each week via his Geologic Podcast.  As of late, he also tweets roughly 10 jokes a day, too (amidst working on his 6th studio album, Trebuchet).  His tweets are usually quite punny… which means… awesome!

Some of my starred feeds from him:

  • Owls make great census workers.
  • I wonder how frogs describe it to each other when they hear someone died.
  • If Al Green where Indonesian, I think he should have sung “Let’s Satay Together.”
  • Both Philip and Ira’s faces momentarily lit up when they saw the sign for “Glass Blowing.”
  • When I was your age my idea of X-Box was what I used for break dancing.
  • You ever hear the one about the Eskimo who didn’t like making igloos?  He just wasn’t that Inuit.
  • I would love to watch Frank Gehry and I.M. Pei play Jenga.
  • Chunky peanut butter: appealing. Chunky regular butter: not so much.
  • Personally, I’d rather think outside the envelope and push the box.

Well, Geologic Podcast #137 (link) has a special feature where it mostly consists of the Twitter Concerto #1 – his reading of some of his tweets over some improv music.  It’s funny.  (Warning: not for kids – there is some dirty language).

Geo Album #6

Mr. George Hrab has announced the name for his upcoming 6th studio album… Trebuchet.  Take a glimpse at possibly a teaser for the artwork (below).  I say possibly, as this e-postcard of sorts is the first inkling of images / names for the album.

Anyway, I’m stoked for album #6.  Geo puts out some great content each week in his podcast, and his albums are like little packets of goodness.

Isis, Geo 100, and a Secret DVD

24th Jan 09 (Sat) Leave a comment

A trio of music news about Isis, George Hrab, and the Secret Chiefs 3…

As foretold in Pitchfork, post-metal band Isis is due out with their follow-up to the amazingly great In the Absence of Truth (2006) on May 5th on Ipecac Recordings.  The release is April 21 for the special edition vinyl.  Wavering Point is their 5th full-length album, and it features TOOL guitarist Adam Jones on a coupe of songs.  The blurb in Pitchfork cracked me up…

And this is just a wild guess, but I’m thinking most of the songs will start out really quiet and pretty and they they’ll get epically loud and crunchy and they’ll last for about eight minutes. Call me crazy.

…because it’s true.

George Hrab‘s Geologic Podcast (i.e.- the best free thing on the internets) just turned 100.  With one every week (give or take), that’s roughly 2 solid years of putting out an almost album’s worth of comedy and musical goodness every stinkin’ week!?  Check him out:

Oh, and he’s working on album #6… which is oh so nice

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

And according to the prophecies and the motto of “screen shot or it didn’t happen,” I present you with this gem of “based on their track record, it probably won’t actually come out on time“… the Secret Chiefs 3 have a live DVD coming out in “March” on Web of Mimicry:

We shall see…
