More Good Music

First - Pay no attention to the strange Technorati-embedded verification token XGWUG5HQGRMD.  We already know about it, but are bound to secrecy.  Kindof.  Let's just leave it alone and get back to business as usual, shall we?

In keeping with the spirit of giving, we want to point out another local Austin band that has a great fresh sound, as well as the stage presence to put on a great show - Watch Out For Rockets.

Lead by the multi-faceted David Jones (not to be confused with the other Dave Jones), WOFR is on CD release #4, continuing their streak of awesome alt. rock-ness.  Be on the lookout for their latest, "Telepathic War Machine", out by Christmas.

1884 is here

Back when the brothers were in the final throes of "Flattened Frog" - that would be the summer of '10 - Brand Gamblin (@brandg) mentioned that he would need some music for the podcast of his latest NaNoWriMo-kick-started, steampunk novel "1884".  

They stewed on it, toyed with various instruments.  Forgot all about it.  Finished and mastered "Flattened Frog", then came back to it with fresh, "I'm ready for something other than electronic music" verve.  They belted out a theme, posted it to Brand.  He liked it and ran with it.  

But the theme, both of the music and of Brand's writing, followed the brothers around like some vengeful ghost.  Eventually, they gave into the muse, spent some days in the studio, and generated this 13 minute track.  

'Tis a freebie, so get ye to Bandcamp and pick it up:

Abra Kadabra!

Introducing, ladies and gents, the talented Joshua Marriott - One actor & cinematographer & maker of films, who we met over a craigslist-incited email conversation.  Josh needed music and sound, and the brothers joined his crew, albeit virtually; mastering the sound and providing a few musical cues for Josh's latest short, the comedy "Abra Kadabra".

Unfortunately, the producer Scott Osborn was credited with the brother's work.  But that's OK - After the latest courtroom debacle, the brothers have decided to lay low on the film post-production side of things.  We'll make the "Abra Kadabra Theme" available on the website Soon.

This space is, typically, reserved for tooting our own horn, letting the world know how awesome doth our talent shine.

Enough of that bullocks.  Found some cool bands lately, and you should seriously give these fellas a listen.  Today's post is dedicated to Mr. Bear.

Mr. Bear just came out with a new CD that will broaden your electronic horizons, No Sleep Till Bleep.  From the silliness of MonkeyPants to the frenetic pace of Legs Monday to the serious ambiance of BigDigger, Mr. Bear's latest shows some serious compositional range, especially for our niche in the music world.  Personal favorite?  Kendama Dub.

Check it.

New Webness

Much sweating.  Over the tools of our acronym-loving webmasters; HTML5, javascript.  PHP.  Widgets.  Server-side scripts.  Images.

But Yes, we're done.  Kinda - The Soundtracks/Freebies page isn't populated just yet.  But the rest of the Apple-happy site is ready for your perusal.  

Come give the new Brothers Burn website a run through:


Mind the dust, if we can quote the old masters of 2002.

Website Junk

Proud, we were.  Finished Flattened Frog, released it to the universe.  Updated our twitter.  Then noticed -

Our website is... a little too 2005.  What with all the Flash and all.

Suddenly, we not be so proud.  Time to brush off the 'ol website persona.  And this being 2010, the new thing being HTML5?  Well, why not make a site that you can check from your iPod?

So.  We're On It.  And are pleased to report that we could, conceivably, have 'er up and running within a week. Or two.  Don't hold your breath, just know it's on the way.

Flattened Frog

FINALLY.  Years we've spent, kinda off and on sure.  But Yeah, years.  The brothers would polish a song, crank out a new one, and -

Lawyers, typically.  Doctors too.  And sure, sometimes it would be another project (ie., like Brand Gamblin's 1884 project, more later).

But Finally.  Yes, we've finished the CD.  Flattened Frog!  Tune into iTunes, or bus into BandCamp.

Up next - Promotion!
