    Portugal. The Man – In The Mountain In The Cloud

    July 19th, 2011

    It’s been a while since we posted here, but Erik and I have been crazy busy with our day jobs.  We weren’t sure where For Musickind would go when we first started it as a music marketing company a few years back, but it’s turned into a very fun side project that let’s us work with bands that we really like. I’m currently in the middle of a whole bunch of projects for Comic-Con at my work, Machine Shop Marketing, and we’ve also finished a couple of FMK projects that I’ll write about soon.

    Anyway, Portugal. The Man released In The Mountain In The Cloud today and I am super stoked. I learned about them when they were touring with RX Bandits and this album has totally won me over as a fan. The album has a range of musical textures that range from classic rock to deep bass-beats that make your head nod.

    Stream the entire album below and support the band by purchasing their album. Enjoy.


    Purchase: Directly from PTM | iTunes

    Choo Choo The Band – “It’s A Good Thing”

    February 19th, 2011

    The For Musickind crew partnered with the indie pop band CHOO CHOO from Bern, Switzerland, for a band website redesign in preparation of the release of their second album Cannes. Fans of Phoenix, The Hives, The Who (early days), and the Caesars will definitely dig their sound.

    Prince, the Internet is NOT Over

    Prince, The Internet Is NOT Over

    I’ll be damned if all the work that we’ve been doing is leading to a dead end. Better yet, all the work we’ve been doing is leading artists to a dead end.

    I was talking with by buddy Keith Gretlein last week about how there are some superstar artists that can get away with anything, including murder, and one of those people is Prince. Making false claims for publicity is another story. It was about midnight when I noticed a tweet from Mashable stating: “Prince: The Internet is Over”.

    That’s not true of course, so I’ve simply taken quotes/statements from the Mirror UK story, and stated my opinion and advice on what was said. As a 25 year old who has been using computers since the age of 6, I remind you, new artists, that Prince is not an artist of the Internet generation. Read the rest of this entry »

    Yep, we’re coming to Canada to throw a rock show. It’s all because the kind people at NXNE asked me to pick some of my favorite bands to put together for a show during their 2010 festival.

    We’ve been busy here at FMK with several music marketing projects, and we apologize for the delay in posting.

    So here we are, excited as hell for what 2010 has in store for independent musicians. Back in September we wrote a post called Musician Websites: Goals, Brand, Commitment where we featured the work-in-progress for Inspired Flight. Well, we launched their website and remix promotion back in November and the creative results are in.

    Thanks to the partnership with Topspin Media and MixMatchMusic, the stems for the song “It Always Takes” were delivered and a total of 33 remixes uploaded! Check them out yourself.

    So now that all of the Inspired Flight remixes have been submitted, the band will go through them and choose the top 5 finalists, and then a winner who will receive an Eyeball 2.0 HD Webcam, courtesy of Blue Microphones. The winner will also be included with the debut album from Inspired Flight coming in May.

    Be sure to download the Inspired Flight EP for free, and stay tuned for a couple of new singles from the new album. Cheers and good luck to all of the participants!
