The Two Usaisamonster Improv Tapes Now Up On The FMA

Usaisamonster was a band for 9 years. When it started there was a lot of jamming but over time it became soley focused on composition.

The songwriting became more and more complex and progressive and the improv completely went out the window.

We became better at songwriting than improvisation but I'm glad we scraped together these two jam tapes.

USAISAMANTRA is 2 live recordings from 2007. We never jammed live at this point but decided to for these two gigs.

KITES IS A MUDBOY is 2 colab recordings, one with Kites and one with Mudboy. It was just about trying something new with friends.

Thanks for listening!

New Player in the Works

We have received many bug reports and feature requests concerning the audio players on the FMA site.  This includes the in-page player (play buttons on the webpages) and our outdated flash-based pop-out playlist player.  I am currently developing a brand new html5 pop-out playlist player for the site and am working to remove the last traces of flash from FMA, which includes portions of the image and audio uploaders.  I hope to have all of this completed by Jan. 31 so keep watching here for updates!

LAZY SALON on FMA

Lazy Salon on Free Music Archive

The 2017 output from New Jersey’s LAZY SALON is now on the FMA.  ‘Invisible Like Peace’ was the project’s debut full-length originally released in March of last year, and the 3-song ‘Trisset’ EP was released in September.  (the first 3 EP's from the project are also on FMA)

These instrumental tracks weave elements of electronic, ambient, beats/rhythm, shoegaze, post-rock & modern psychedelia with an emphasis on texture, repetition, rhythm and hypnotic melody.

LAZY SALON is producer/multi-instrumentalist Sean Byrne, formerly of The Twin Atlas and drummer with Lenola, Mazarin, BC Camplight and others.
