Poderosos ritmos casiotrónicos abren este divertido álbum, lleno de una electrónica juguetona que inyecta los 90 de vuelta a tu cerebro. 4 temas de fantásticas variables musicales como 8-bit, break beat o hip hop instrumental para vibrar y repetir escuchas.

Every January, a group of philosophers met in a cave somewhere in Colorado. They got together for three days to think and philosophize about life and the universe around them. However, the 1887 meeting became a fateful one. The three day event became a week long discussion about life beyond this world. During this time, they disregarded the essentials of life, such as eating and sleeping. Therefore, all of whom were attending this event suffocated themselves to death in their own philosophy. This unnamed cave became their tomb.
01. Lecture Tomb
Lecture Tomb was composed on two separate occasions: September 30 & November 4, 2015.

Release Date: August 24, 2015
Label: Happy Puppy Records
“We’re very pleased to release a new artist to the puppy pound – much,! (yes, that’s with a comma). much, is a side project by Zach Bridier. Instead of exploring in experimental IDM-ish electronic music in Captive Portal, Zach goes in singer/songwriter mode. We like to call it a “nice blend of electronica, hip hoppy samples, acoustic instruments and vocoders, etc.” That’s probably the best way to describe the music of much,.” – Happy Puppy Records
