Just released. It took us a while to get it out but here it is.

http://ukuleleunderground.com/k-town-heroes-eat-sleep-music-sessions/

The back story for this project. In December of last year, Aldrine and I flew up to Oahu to record a "live CD". Every single gig we play at people always ask us if we have any of the songs we play on CD. We got tired of having to tell them no, so we got our friend Danyo to help us record this small project. Though doing the live CD thing didn't go exactly as we planned, we still managed to record 10 tracks in 5 days which is pretty much ridiculous. Every day we spent at least 10 hours of doing nothing but recording.

On the CD cover, it says we lived at and slept on the studio floor, which we did, but when we say recording studio, take that quite literally. What we really mean is we slept in a studio apartment recording this thing. The entire room the 3 of us locked ourselves in couldn't have been much bigger than 200 sqft. 3 grown ass men, staying in a cramped studio apartment for more than 20 hours a day is one of those things that sounded like a good idea at the time. The space was tiny, in fact we had to strategically arrange our sleeping areas and were often under keyboards and in doorways to the bathroom. This was made even more complicated because Aldrine has a superstition that his feet can never face a door when he is sleeping.

Danyo no longer lives there and has a pretty nice set up now so I hope he doesn't mind me sharing this.

So that's the story of this little project. Quite an experience. I don't know if I would want to do it again but it was well worth it at least once.

I put my order in! I decided it was also the perfect time to order the cool new UU grunge tee. It will look great on Rich, especially after I chop on the sleeves and cut out the neck...

It's a Filipino superstition but I can't remember what's suppose to happen. My mom wasn't big on that particular superstition but I don't sleep with my feet towards the door anyway because of Feng Shui principles. It drains your energy.

BTW, looking forward to the new album!

My mother in law says it means you are waiting to die. When a family member dies, all the windows are opened and the feet of the deceased are placed towards the door so the spirit can easily depart. Ric

It's best to order now to be safe. When they came last year, they sold out of many items early. Ric

Please don't hate me, but somehow I don't like it :(

I like the songs and everything but I don't like this clean studio sound. I love it when they're sitting on their balcony or elsewhere and record it but this studio sound isn't quite my thing :(

To each his own. Maybe we really do need to do a real "live" album one day.:)

Also, to everyone who has ordered this album already. Thank you so much for your support. We are truly humbled everyday.

I'm mostly digital these days, any place where I can purchase mp3's (prefer DRM free but for you guys, I'll even suffer through DRM :D)?

If it's not digitally available yet, will it be? If not, I'll just order the CD. I just always prefer to buy digital if I can and cut out the waste of shipping, a CD which will just go into a box after I rip it, etc.

Thanks!

iTunes users, when you put the CD in does Gracenote automatically find the disc for you? I've submitted the track list twice but still no joy!

Got to listen to it yesterday for the first time. I LOVE it! I understand about liking them better "live", but since I live in Minnesota and Aldrine only seems to tour in California and Rayan stayed home this time anyway, this is the best I can get. And I love it. Thanks guys. Hurry up and make another one.

Love the album.

Hey Ryan or Aldrine, Someone was asking me: “K-Town” is an abbreviation for what? Could you shed some light?

I honestly have no idea, though I'm assuming it's a "k" town on Kaua'i...

Love the album.

I honestly have no idea, though I'm assuming it's a "k" town on Kaua'i...

Ryan is from "Kapa'a" and I'm from "Koloa"
we're both from "Kaua'i"

We had a drummer/percussionist from "Kealia"
Then another drummer/percussionist/taiko from "Kaimuki"

Jake S. also plays with us pretty often, he's also from "Kaimuki"





Yep. Lotsa "K" goin on in our band. Truth is we stole it from Aaron. That's the name of his video company hahah.

As said on the back cover: "the... tracks [are] far from perfect"

Puhleeeaaaase! The cd is excellent! The beauty of music is that it doesnt need to be perfect. In that moment of time a the note was played, it worked, it made sense, and it makes u feel something. U guys are able to share that moment with the world by distributing the cd. Thanks for sharing the love! I love all of Aldy's originals, but I was aching for a lineup of what u guys cover at ur performances.

This cd is great, because even though the songs are covers, you guys have put your signature, your sound into it. Although it might not be for everyone, it works! Keep it comin bruddas!
