Kingbastard's News

Posted by Kingbastard - June 12th, 2012


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.

[Herb Recordings]
