Manifest Destiny, the film

Manifest Destiny was a labor of love. Or of falling out of love. I funneled my emotions from a turbulent time of self-reflection into an album that I feel deeply connected to. If nothing else I think one can say that it’s sincere. Along the way I felt the urge to document moments that captured the mood of the record, which turned into snapshots of each song and eventually what I have to present to you now: Manifest Destiny, the film. It’s somewhere between a home movie and an art film; just as experimental as the album. These are vague allusions to the memories that inspired these songs meant for background play as you listen to the album.

Thank you.

8 Devil Music records up on the FMA!!!

Ok. First off, don't listen to ANY of these Devil Music records until you -

GET THE NEW DEVIL MUSIC RECORD "CISUM LIVED" ON 100% BREAKFAST AVAILABLE HERE

Then, after you thoroughly study that new album, you can listen to these 8 other Devil Music records available now on the FMA here

We got their rock records Mastul, S/T, and Go.

We got their soundtracks (audio only without the annoying old black and white movies) Caligari, Big Stakes, Nosferatu, and Dr. Jeckyll.

Big Stakes was really influential to me - combing country and western and minimalism, it opened some doors for me.

We even got, maybe their best record, HEAVY METAL CREW which is a split between Brendon's elementry school student and a found tape of kids screaming. Classic Mass Dist!

What can I say about these guys?!? Prolific Boston jammer composers. Psychedelic warriors. Old friends. Spiritual musical searchers. Get lost with these dudes!

MASS DIST !!!!

It's the season of giving - so share your finest original and traditional, holiday and seasonal pells (a capella/isolated vocals), samples, and remixes. We would like to encourage you to record traditional public domain Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and Winter Solstice songs, as these are very popular with both listeners and remixers.
