tarantula serpent

… is a renegade independent Folktronic band. At least, that is what we chose to call it. We mostly blend synths and guitars with a variety of other instruments and all our favorite genres of music, to create a style all our own. (Much more about us below…)

Our first release Luigi Airlines is made up of 26 short songs that blend together seamlessly. Start at the beginning, or hit shuffle and remix the album yourself! Any combination of the tunes should work.

We have 2 flavors of music: 1. Fun 2. Sentimental.

A few more words about Luigi Airlines:

The beginning of this artistic journey started when Tarantula realized that Serpent had a huge stockpile of half-finished songs. Each of them were different genres or styles and all of them sounded awesome. So Tarantula thought…

Why not collect all the best pieces of songs we had and put them together in album form? Of course we recorded some new ones along the way too. While we were gathering together all the song snippets, we came to the realization that each of these songs could be blended into each other to create more of a seamless super-album. After 7 years of recording, re-recording, mixing and matching tune orders, tweaking more, mixing, and then sending it to Ken Lee Mastering; Luigi Airlines finally saw the light of day!

During the process, we laser focused on these goals: the songs would be as catchy as possible, and either fun/funny or sentimental. There are lots of ear-worms on this album. (Although it may take a few spins for you to really catch what we were going for here.) Each song is short, to the point, (what the point is we’ll let you determine) and have amalgamated to bring forth an album specially designed for the A.D.D. generation.

The album starts with a more electronica vibe and then takes a quick foray into rock, back to electronica, into funk, info hip hop, into soul, into straight up folk… into… you get the idea. There are synths over a bunch of the styles. The whole thing is backed by break beats for that upbeat fun driving feeling. Get your dancing shoes on and turn it up to 11!

The whole album is put together in a “DJ mix” fashion, so all songs bleed together seamlessly. Once you’ve tried it in the intended order, try the album on shuffle. You’ll be surprised by the outcome! For the best results, download the album to make sure there are no pauses between songs. Here’s a hint as to why the songs blend together so well: it has to do with the BPMs and keys of the songs. (Ok, I’ll just tell you… The whole thing is 98 BPM and the keys of the songs are ambiguous enough to blend well in any order.)

All in all, we aimed at making an album that reflected our personalities: fun loving, quirky, easy going, and thankful for all the great times and good people. So without further adieu…

Enjoy!
