Listen to my forthcoming mini-album Chris Weeks - A Deconstructed Sun in full now.

================================================
'A Deconstructed Sun' is a sonic representation of the Sun's elemental composition; breaking it down into its constituent parts.

Mirroring this process by utilising fragments of melodic and tonal explorations created for his ambient opus 'A Haunting Sun'; Chris deconstructed select elements and rearranged them to form new, unique audio collages.

The resulting conceptual 'mini-album' is a progressive and cohesive amalgam of sonorous ambience, lo-fi sensibilities, descriptive drone, experimental electronica & glitch.

A wonderfully realised record in its own right, it also serves as the perfect accompaniment to his debut LP on Nibbana, 'A Haunting Sun'.

Myheadisaballoon - Album Promo

Listen to a Promo 'Taster' Mix, showcasing the 10 tracks from 'Pop Goes The People!', Myheadisaballoon's forthcoming debut album, here on Newgrounds: Myheadisaballoon - Album Promo Mix

Pop Goes The People! is an album of idiosyncratic, lo-fi pop songs from the mind of a daydreamer...
Myheadisaballoon unites pop tendencies & lo-fi sensibilities with a refreshingly simple, honest & emotive refrain. Throughout the course of the record you'll hear eclectic, lovingly crafted intertwining melodies, ambient tones, layered harmonious vocals, and a wide-range of multi-instrumentation; all lightly dusted with a natural lo-fi sheen. This is 'pure, heart-felt Pop', no samples, no unnecessary 'over-polished' production, and absolutely no auto-tune! In a modern culture of cynical, generic, & overwrought manufactured pop music, Myheadisaballoon strips things back, champions the DIY aesthetic, & delivers music which is full of character, ideas, imagination & sincerity.
