48 Hours

September 25th, 2013

We have a lot of talented players on Figment who are just as talented outside of it.  formerwageslave is one such player.  He runs his own label, plays in several bands, is a club DJ, and hosts his own radio show on WMPG.

Clearly formerwageslave’s plate is full right?  Not quite.  Last winter he participated in Portland, MEs “48 Hour Music Festival” where 30 local musicians were randomly grouped together into “bands.”   These “bands” were given 48 hours to write a 25-minute set of material and then asked to perform the original songs they’d written live at a local venue.

formerwageslave’s band “The Body In The Kelp” recorded the four songs they wrote for the Festival and have just made them available via Bandcamp as a “Name Your Price” download or via CD for $7. As formerwageslave pointed out, “the songs have a stoner/doom/blues vibe… not heavy or psych enough to be Vorpal Queen, but there’s a little bit of that group hiding inside these songs…”

So support a fellow Figment player by downloading this incredible album – you can give it a listen here:

    I can’t thank Figment enough for this profile, what a surprise!! I’m very proud of the work I did as part of the Kelp, and greatly appreciate the free promotion. I also did the artwork for the CD. 😉
