High In the Cemetery – Old Ways and Old Waves

op Figured I’d wasted enough time since dropping the INCREDIBLE album release news. So yeah, I made a record. You can buy it. I have CDs. You can buy them. Please buy them.

BUT I have also been working off and on on a couple of additional albums; this one I have been sitting on hoping that I would eventually add vocals. I am now sick of sitting on this album. Introducing High In the Cemetery, my latest dreampop/shoegaze avatar, and “their” album Hey Joe, dedicated to my friend Joe who refuses to listen to anything not released before 1997.

Anyway, I have posted 4 of 7 tracks up at the old soundcloud for perusal. Please give a listen here:

High In the Cemetery – One for Gene E.P.

Recorded at The Good Life in 2006 by Long Beach unknowns High In the Cemetery, these two tracks from the unreleased and previously unheard (ahem) “debut single” are less likely to induce any unwelcome fits of post-psychedelic trauma or spontaneous napping.

 

High In the Cemetery – Ghost Factory | 4:49
From the unreleased “One for Gene” E.P.
Long Beach CA, 2006

According to the track notes this one has something to do with some kind of “metaphorical universal wheel.” We’re not entirely sure what HITC had in mind with that exactly but it sure sounds like guitar music to us. No keyboards, no vocals, no problem.

High In the Cemetery – You Are Apollo 13 | 4:18
From the unreleased “One for Gene” E.P.
Long Beach CA, 2006

Simple, straight-forward 80’s-inflected guitar music. What, no vocals on this one either? What a surprise! The lead guitar is slightly out of tune? What another surprise!
