Hello and thanks for checking out my Pledge Music page!
[Hola! Lee abajo este mensaje en español.]

I’m really excited about being able to share my new album (as well as posters, t-shirts, etc!) with you here.

The album is called “Fragments and Wholes, Vol. 1” and it will be ready for release on November 11. That’s 11/11/2014, for those of you who know my musical history, the numbers add up to eleven of course.

On this new album, I expand on the Cigarbox guitar driven sound of Spark into a wider sonic palate including electric guitars, bass, drums, horns etc. The songs started as improvised sketches I posted on Instagram. For 12 days I chose one song each morning, finished writing it then recorded and mixed it. Check out the audio sampler on this page.

If you pre-order the album, you’ll get it digitally on 11/11, and you’ll get any physical items you want shortly after that. In addition, I’ll be sending you exclusive updates from my home/studio 11AD, as well as updates from the road as I open up for Queens of the Stone Age in South America in late September!

So please pledge below. I look forward to hearing from you!

Love + music,
Alain

Hola y gracias por visitar my página en Pledge Music, estoy realmente emocionado por la posibilidad de compartir mi nuevo álbum (así como pósters, playeras, remeras, etc!) contigo acá.
El álbum se llama “Fragments and Wholes, Vol. 1” y estará listo para ser lanzado el 11 de Noviembre. Eso es 11/11/2014, para aquellos que conocen mi historia musical, los números suman once por supuesto.

En este álbum, expando del sonido orientado a la guitarra “cigarbox” de Spark a una paleta sónica más amplia incluyendo guitarras eléctricas, bajo, batería, vientos, etc. Las canciones partieron como ideas improvisadas en Instagram. Durante el transcurso de 12 días, elegía una de esas ideas en la mañana, terminaba de escribirla para luego grabarla y mezclarla. Revisa el sampler de audio de esta página.

Si pre-ordenas este álbum, lo obtendrás digitalmente el 11/11 y recibirás poco después de esa fecha los ítems físicos que quieras. Además, estaré enviando actualizaciones exclusivas desde mi Home Studio 11AD, así como actualizaciones de la gira donde estaré abriendo para Queens of The Stone Age en su gira por America Latina a fines de Septiembre!

Así que por favor, apoya con un “Pledge” abajo! Espero saber de ti.

Amor + Musica
Alain
