WEEK OF MUSIC: “Monsters”

Playing music with my friends for the “Everyone C’mon Get Happy” album release party really inspired me. What came out of my final year in the studio (before having children with Haley) was an album titled Monsters. For me, that album brought it all back full circle…once again I was working on music alone in my room. I got a drum machine and I was listening to almost exclusively Prince, so I wanted to try my hand again at putting together an album by myself. It was fun to write songs around drum loops and to experiment with keyboards instead of just playing a lot of guitar.

After I finished up this album, I continued to write music but nothing ever really got recorded or finished….that is until 2016 hit and from that year came a new album which will be released TOMORROW! Stay tuned!

You have a few options with how you can listen to and download these albums:

  1. You can purchase the albums at the Abigail Foster’s Photosynthesis Machine website. The albums are $7 each and any money made from the purchase of these albums goes into one of two things: Arbacarba Records, which will invest the money in making these albums available on streaming platforms (Spotify, Apple Music, etc) or Fidelia Hall, which will help with the repairs and restoration of this 144 year old community center. Once purchased, you can download the albums in a variety of formats (MP3, FLAC, and more) or stream them via the free Bandcamp app (iTunes, Android)
  2. You can stream the albums for free at the Abigail Foster’s Photosynthesis Machine website.
  3. If you are a library (public, academic, special) and you wish to add any of the Abigail Foster’s Photosynthesis Machine albums to your digital collection, you may do so by contacting me at justinthelibrarian at gmail dot com and I will gladly share these albums with you as MP3 or WAV formats. Once you have these files, your library will be able to provide your library card patrons with these albums for free by adding them to your library digital music collection at no cost to you.

I hope you enjoy this album!
