Nate Belasco - Left and Right EP

LISTEN/BUY

After years of playing guitar and writing songs, I finally got my act together and recorded a proper album. Left and Right is a five song EP of psych-folk/electro-pop recorded in various bedrooms over the last year. While I've released a few electronic albums under various names (Tactical Lisp, Warriorz of Virtue, and Errands) and two hip hop albums with my old band Mammox, this is my first release as a solo singer-songwriter (albeit with an army of layers behind my voice and my acoustic guitar). It represents my first attempt at melding my eclectic and often contradictory musical interests/obsessions - songwriting, beat-making, synthesis, side-chain compression, reversing recordings of metal tubing resonances, etc. - so naturally it means a lot to me. And thematically this is an album about contrast and dichotomies: left and right, this and that, here and there, loud and soft, acoustic and electric, expression and repression, control and chaos, sanity and psychosis. Ideally, the listener will end up dancing and scratching their head at the same time. I would greatly appreciate if you took twenty-one minutes and thirty-six seconds of your time to listen to the album in its entirety. 

Thank you to all my friends, family, and teachers who have inspired and encouraged me over the years. And a special thank you to my late great-uncle Harvey Edwards who donated the incredible microphone that made this recording possible. This album is for all of you. 

If my songs gets you super stoked, please do tell your friends. And tell your friends who are super stoked that I want to be friends with them.

Released September 2012

All instruments and vocals performed by Nate Belasco, except on "New Religion" which features backing vocals by Dan Gilbert and Tegan Walsh, and spoken word by Jorge De La Torre and Jason Tarkington.

Tactical Lisp - Emergence

LISTEN/BUY

Tactical Lisp presents its first full-length album, Emergence. This epic discourse in electronic sound defies genre classification, combining the hyperswung rhythms and thunderous sub bass of dubstep with quirky chiptune melodic tendencies and hip hop sampling aesthetics. Huge synths mingle freely with dainty bleeps and bloops and found sound percussion. Vocal samples cavort with synths masquerading as voices. Each song creates a brand new sound world, yet the album is held together by recurring themes: groovy beats, absurd pauses, psychedelic experimentation, and a keen sense of humor. 

Tactical Lisp is the same production duo behind Mammox, Nate Belasco and Zack Zukowski. 

The album art is by Helen Gilbert.

Get your freak on with these tracks (cooked by NATE BELASCO) like mellow alien parasites in your brain, pulsing with numb eroticism. Co-created cyborg poetics find voice in the alienated crooning of PAUL SHEPARD, slathered in autotune thicker than mayonnaise. These twin anthems - the politically questionable "Light 'Em Up," followed by "The Last Visible Dog" (a meditation on infinity inspired by Russell Hoban's book, "The Mouse and His Child") - feature hype by Dairy White.

LISTEN

Errands is the electro-acoustic/ambient music project of Nate Belasco. The music juxtaposes lush ethereal drones with more active sonic transfigurations, lulling the listener into fleeting trances which are snatched away without warning. The sound sources are quite varied, ranging from guitar, both live and heavily processed, to synthesizers and found sounds. The goal of this mini-album was to explore unconventional processes of sound manipulation and layering while never loosing sight of the tried and true elements of interesting music: melody and harmony. Too busy to be background music yet too tonal to be considered academic, Errands is something entirely its own.
