xms: my idea of a christmas album



So, how did this come about? Well, sort of randomly I suppose. After I released Twins, I was still feeling the urge to make another album, and seeing as December was on the horizon, I thought a Christmas themed album would be perfect. And as it turns out, I ended up putting more effort and had way more fun making this album than I have with any previous release. That's not to put any negativity toward my last releases. But somehow, xms became an album that I wanted to be perfect, and it turned out better than I imagined it would. It's quite the journey if you listen to it because right from the get go, I feel as though I've opened a book and have taken you for a ride. I'm only saying that because I have listened to this album several times to make sure it was perfect from my standards.

I'm not expecting anybody to really like this album or even listen to it. But just know that what you're getting with xms is what happens when I really want to make something special. Again, my past albums are very special to me and they are great, but something about this album brought a new level of creativity to me and it just produced 10 solid tracks of what I like to consider the Cats With Hats version of a Christmas album.

This album while not only being a personal accomplishment, it's also the biggest album I've ever made under the Cats With Hats name. I've made albums longer than this in my past projects, but this is by far the biggest album on the Cats With Hats releases. That's also important for me because I allowed myself to really put everything into the 10 tracks you see presented here.

If you have any interest, feel free to leave your thoughts in here and I'd love to hear your feedback.

I release a compilation of the songs I made in the past because why the **** not?

I've decided to go ahead and try to find the remnants of my past projects and release them as a compilation on my current band camp. You can find the compilation here. It's a collection of songs I made for the ##### and Psychephilia projects that I use to create for. I couldn't for the life of me remember the names of the albums so just remember that these are tracks I've made before along several several albums.

This was back when I was first starting to make music so keep in mind that a lot of this is going to be very weird and just straight up crappy. But hey, it was experimenting for me and I was trying to find the sound that I would eventually come to love. I do love a lot of these tracks though but god damn they're weird to listen to right now.

And just if you're not aware. You won't be able to find any music from those projects because I got really stoned and depressed one night and decided to delete all the music from both bandcamps and god damn I regret it every single time I think about it. But I figured the least I could do is release something that shows the music I used to make. Hell, some of this I may come back to for inspiration. This is also just a personal project for me because I do want a place where most of my old stuff can be found. This isn't all the music I've made in the past, but it's a good chunk of it.

Enjoy!


Cats With Hats - A Compilation of the Past (#####, Psychephilia)

Upcoming in 2019

Cats With Hats - The Cold Blue

As some of you are probably pretty well aware, I've got new **** coming out. When that is? I have no idea. Sometime this year though. The Cold Blue is turning out to be more of an adventure and less of an album. The tracks that I'm making for this stand out from my other albums while still maintaining the Cats With Hats. Now, to be fair, I never really sought to do something specific when I made this project, it was just a place for me to record the kind of music that I want. As the project has gone along more and more, I'm finding my place in this humongous world of music, and I'm planting my seed in the only way I know how - by making music.

I'm probably not going to be releasing every track until the album is released in its completion. However, I want to post a track that I feel may very well be in the top 3 tracks that I have ever made. It may very well be the best Cats With Hats track I've ever made. So, here ya go. This is "Go While You Still Have Time" by me.

Quicker than expected, but it's here!

Cats With Hats - The Cold Blue (2019)

Link: Cats With Hats - The Cold Blue (2019)

My very first album of 2019 is here. I actually started thinking of ways to go about this album even before I did the Christmas album in December, so I already knew that right away, I wanted to start on something after the Christmas album to bring in the new year with something great. I really feel like I may have achieved that. This album, The Cold Blue, is undoubtedly the best thing I've ever put out. Every single track is something I'm extraordinarily proud of, and the whole atmosphere of the album just feels great. I've given it a listen a few times just to make sure I've done what I wanted to do, and finally, 10 tracks later, and some minor changes, The Cold Blue is the first 2019 album that I've released.

I can't really say for sure what theme I was going for here, but I want it to feel more like an adventure of sorts. I feel like this was a nice way to bring in the new year, with an album that I'm not only proud of, but I feel like I've improved the most on this album than any other album I've put out so far.
