The Milkshake Daddy: Stranded on the Shores of Space

About the Album:

Stranded on the Shores of Space features 9 songs and over 39 minutes of songs about space travel and various objects in our solar system. I recorded it after watching all episodes of the TV show Cosmos.

(BTW, the original name of the album was “A Prisim Refracting Light”, and the purpose of music is to provide a sound track for Neil Degrasse Tyson’s inevitable wooing of Amy Mainzer, and their creation of a race of magic space babies.)

Instruments used: A bass, a Gibson Les Paul Studio, a microKORG, a Kaossilator, a Roland BOSS drum machine, the blue KORG Electribe, sound-drop toys from Japan, and the iPad apps: Drums!, FunkBox, SoundPrism, iMS-20, moxMatrix, and AniMoog.

Here’s the songs! This album is FREE as in BEER! You’re free to download, share, play it where ever you like, and remix it.
