...Zoo Puma and Vampiger

According to the Sabertooth Tiger website (to be launched this month, as soon as I get hosting):
"These guys are pop musicians and happy people. Their music makes you think about dancing in a scary place. These albums are instrumental synth jams."

For the most part, the Zoo Puma and Vampiger series is a chronicle of the expanding library of sounds that open up as the studio grows. The human body is poly-rhythmic, and the off-beats and noises represent the passage of time, with each a brushstroke on the canvas of memory. But there's a few over-arching themes and moods here. Like the house cats that they are, the music is imbued with a naivety and lethargy of the bucolic family pet.

"I can play guitar as fatigued as Jeff Tweedy/
This guy on MicroKorg is a fuzzy-face sweetie/
Together we can take this town/
Lay out during the mixdown/
Swimmin' around in the lazy sound/
We don't put the tapes out and then lay around/
WE ROLLIN'/ We makin' mas songs/
Bikin' round all day or hittin' on bongs/
WE STOLE IT/ From the artists that we love/
Holding shotgun mics in our likes, aiming at the crying dove/
It's picturesque, it's art qua art for art qua's sake/
It's fun for me-but it really hurts the head/
Not that it's some compulsion like wishing you were dead/
Some days when I awake I want to stay in bed/
But music stores ring out and pull me into them instead/
It keeps one zen, skippin' rocks across the lake/
Not much fuss, to ride a bus or bike 'tween both the banks/"
