Why am I making such a big deal about being accepted to Pandora / Sirius?

Simply, it's because they are radio stations and strictly curated. You have to get through their approval process. 

Web-services like Spotify, on the other hand, must accept everything that comes their way. Your uncle, who just recorded his harmonica renditions of Elvis in his bathroom. He's on Spotify too.

 

The masters got done, finally. Bringing in golden ears Alex Kouznetsov and Stephen Pope at a late stage, we identified some problems and got them fixed as best we could. It's now too late to fix anything:) The physical CD will arrive in about a week.

Producer Brooke R. Calder will arrive in Santa Barbara this month to start the final production work on the next album. She will bring a new and fresh perspective to all the songs. It's going to be awesome!

We have started production work on a couple of new tracks. I'll be going to Norway in October to work in the studio with Atle. We plan to release one or two as singles beginning of next year. Watch this space for developments and maybe outtakes from the studio!

Be sure to tune in to the ArtistFirst Radio Network on August 28th at 9pm EST (New York time). It's going to be an hour-long special with FrodoCPU - live interview and music.

"Dirty Love" is getting a lot of plays on YouTube! Well. relatively speaking;) At least it shows up on the first page if you search for "Frank Zappa Dirty Love", right below Steve Vai's version!

Check it out if you haven't seen it already:

How many times is "Power Of Two" written on the physical CD cover (including the disc), either in words or mathematically? The first 10-15 to send us the correct answer will get a copy of the first FrodoCPU CD. Submit through the Contact page.

 

So it's finally here - the new FrodoCPU album! I started producing it in earnest around 2003-4 and the original expectation was to have it out in 2008-9 (yes, I take my own sweet time on this project). But then the big recession hit and I was knocked back a couple of steps. No need to go into any of those details, except to say that delays ensued.
Anyway, I hope you'll like it as much as I do. As with the previous one, its strength comes from the collaboration with incredibly gifted individuals; be they musicians, songwriters, producers or what have you. I am really fortunate to have such great talent working with me and it's a big reason why the tracks sound the way they do: world-class!
I hope to see some new fans here on the blog and, of course, all the old ones. Please leave some thoughts, whatever they may be, and I will do my best to participate in the conversation.
