Gremlin  ✎ Edit

Location: Carl Sagan's Cosmos ✎ Edit
About me: 
✎ Edit Kirk Gremlin: all vocals, instruments, and production.

Influences: Low, Ryan Adams, Neil Young, Gram Parsons, Westerberg, Tortoise, Jobim, Charles Mingus, Harry Nilsson, Jackson Browne, Velvets, hip hop, lots of metal from Cinderella to Pantera, and pretty much any electronic and alt-country I can find.
I know a lot of those don't come through really, but they give me ideas, and inspire me to pick up the guitar or sit behind a keyboard.

I appreciate you stopping by for a listen. Hope the day (or night) finds you well, wherever you are.

All tracks are available for free. I will upload some more demos in the future. : )

HHAHA this is probably true. I just wrote 12 songs in a week and these are 2 of them. Just recording them leisurely as a clean up some of these rock songs for the next Sleeping Ships release.

We were born to live the dream... 12 tracks in 1 week, 50 books in 1 year?! You put us all to shame 😳

As I clean up * my bad.
Hah well tech I’m at 68 right now. Watched over 500 movies and listened to over 500 records I hadn’t heard before as well this year. I track all of this stuff for some reason. I’m weird. Basically an artistic savant just minus the usual trust fund LOL

Steely Grem! Very nice arrangement. Cool to hear the band continue to develop.

I have a lot of open mic experience, wish they were on better nights on Tuesday from 10pm to 2am! Good luck with your job search. Try the burgh!

Haha yea they are always on generally awful nights crowd wise. Thank you. Nothing is really popping up right now with the holidays in terms of new postings so just in limbo at the moment til the new year.

2 dreams: open mic focused cafe, Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday 430-930 (100 or so slots per week) and (2) mariachi mama, gig app for actual gigs! $100 per night per musician basic cost, adjustable. It wouldn't be any everyday tgijg to hire someone but anniversaries, birthdays, etc. Cost friendly and I think there is a market for it and definitely the work force is already there... Because you asked... But then you can just do nutrition for fun and music for money!

Gremlin gave feedback to shoham for “Autumn LEAVES (WIP)”:
Very cool tune man!

Digging the chords throughout. Almost envision the final recording done in a style similar to this:

Maybe this should get a remix from the ol Grem.

I hadn't heard of olde roky before. I will have to check some of his stuff out. Thanks for listening, this was a bad recording even for me! I need to bare down and get into a studio, the problem is I am not with a band or accompanists and am camera shy on the guitar. But I will definitely take your suggestion to heart, since I think I need a strategy for arrangements when I finally put something like ore substantive together.

If by remix you mean a cover, that would be nice! I could shoot you the chords and lyrics.

He was a member of the psych rock group 13th Floor Elevators. My friend from Austin grew up living down the street from him. Apparently by that point he was pretty nuts from all the LSD and stuff. Kinda sad. Made some good music though. Haha yea I was thinking a cover, then again I am at work on some stuff of my own, so may be next year before I get to one.

Seems like a nut. Yeah that would be cool. If you ever get up to ittsburgh (or if I get down to Huntington we'll have to jam/record/epic!)

I think it''s this one. Folk Wars.

Gremlin 
That’s pretty funny man. I’ve asked a few of my friends and each of you guys have picked a diff one as your fav. Folk Wars is my fav too. Just has my strongest set of tunes. Working on an outtakes and b sides/rarities/singles comp for next year and finishing up a Sleeping Ships ep for a rock release. Happy thanksgiving weekend man

You’ve listened to this one right? My fourth release this year. https://www.feed-forward.net/a.1285_Sleeping_Ships_-_Ocean_Songs

The ep I am working on finishing up has some songs left off this one and a few other tunes from the vault to round it out

Unless it is brand new, I have but I will double check. I've got a hot track on the way for your listening pleasure... Enjoy the weather this weekend (60 in Huntington?!)

Very rough, but I wanted to get it out to you before Cyber MOnday.... https://www.feed-forward.net/w.7116_Strung_Out_and_bLue_York

Lyrics don't exactly match what I have written in the notes. I think you'll enjoy the jazzy changes and the melancholy mood/theme!

Very nice. I will listen to this right now. I was actually not in town and there was some bad storms that delayed my travel so didnt actually get to listen to this in time for cyber monday. Bumping it now though. Will post a comment with thoughts shortly.
