Looks it’s been/is being recorded. Lots of fun teases on Elfman’s Instagram.October 19, 2020 at 9:38 pm #99246Robert HutchisonParticipant
Love all the drums! I wonder if it’s an extrapolation of the stuff he was working on for Coachella?
Incidentally, Ryan, I’ve been trying to make a new post here but it hasn’t been working!October 20, 2020 at 1:54 pm #99247rkeaveneyKeymaster
This forum has almost been as quiet as Elfman’s input as of late!
I’ll look into if there are any technical issues with posting.October 21, 2020 at 4:54 pm #99251
I like the percussive bits that he posted on Instagram, but less enthused with the grungey fuss guitars in the last couple of clips. Needs more synths!October 29, 2020 at 8:53 am #99254
First song is out on streaming platforms.
It’s…something ? I’ve never been huge fan of Elfman’s rock work to be honest so I don’t know.October 29, 2020 at 12:22 pm #99255
I think it’s fun! The mixing seems off to me, but I lack the technical knowledge to articulate why.
I love the idea that this obscenity-filled song was permeating in his mind at the same time as a percussion concerto.October 29, 2020 at 12:49 pm #99256
I love it! It’s great mish-mash of Elfmanisms – a little bit of NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS, a little bit of Philip Glass-ian minimalism and a little bit of punkish New Wave, Boingo-style.
Hope there’s more to come, whether a whole studio album or something else.January 11, 2021 at 12:51 pm #99290
New song :
I like it better than Happy…but not by much ! 😀January 11, 2021 at 3:25 pm #99291
Official link; sorry, can’t edit my previous post :January 11, 2021 at 4:15 pm #99292
I LOVE this one.January 12, 2021 at 10:00 am #99293
I like “Happy” more.
Both of these are a natural continuation of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers/Ninch Inch Nails-type sound that defined their last album in ’94 (the children’s chorus in “Sorry” brings the children’s chorus in “Insanity” to mind). Only darker. Personally, I wish he went back to his funkier and cleaner New Wave roots a bit more, rather than being all grungey and metally and fussy, but I’m just thankful we’re getting new rock songs from him. Would be awesome if these singles amounted to a whole allbum at some point.January 12, 2021 at 5:35 pm #99295
It seems that he will be releasing a new track on the 11th every month “for a while”. So there will definitely be enough content for an album at some point…January 13, 2021 at 5:33 pm #99296
I hope it’s conceived as an album and not 13 songs.February 19, 2021 at 9:49 am #99419
Ok, that one is my favorite of the three. More “on point” to my hears.
And what an adorably weird video.February 19, 2021 at 10:34 am #99420
Love the video, like the song.
Wonder if all of the music is gonna be this…angry?
