It’s time again for another geek music blog. This time it’s about 3 amazing artists.
First up is Meri Amber, a personal fave of mine when it comes to geek music and parodies. I had the pleasure of hearing her new album “Pop Goes The TARDIS” and feel in love. It’s full of wonderful Doctor Who related songs and has some very catchy tunes. I especially love New Companion, as well as Baby Get Me A TARDIS.
It’s a fun album, which fits her usual style, and I love that it’s a nice little adventure thru the Doctor Who fandom.
I really like seeing a young artist like her come up with fresh ideas and hit the geek fandom target, because it’s a genre I’m falling in love with and she is on my list of artists I keep an eye on.
You can find her album here http://www.meriamber.com/music/ so be sure to check it out.
Next up is someone new to my geek music radar, but we have a geek musician friend in common. Peter, the creator of Rock, Paper, Cynic web comic has something new in the works.
In his own words:
It’s a musical mad science experiment involving a broken telephone-style songwriting chain made up of some of the today’s top geek musiciansIt includes The Doubleclicks, MC Frontalot, Zach Sherwin (Epic Rap Battles of History), Sarah Donner (who does The Oatmeal’s webcomic sing-a-longs), Professor Shyguy, and many, many moreThe resulting double-album is themed around the history of miscommunication and being distributed by carrier pigeons, messages in bottles, cave paintings, and mysterious destiny amulets
You can find out more info here www.borkentelephone.com and I plan on having an interview with him up soon.
I’m always impressed by musicians who can be so creative they can just come up with songs on the spot, and to be able to crank out a song a day for 87 days is insane! He must have a lot of pent up creativity, and I look forward to seeing how the whole run comes together.
You can follow the adventure here http://mrgeerocks.com/press_fallout.html and countdown the days until the new Fallout game.
