Adam WarRock “The Captain” (MP3 Download)
Beat used: Rhymefest “Bullet”
I have been focusing on catching up with comics lately. Somewhere in the iced over winter, some other projects I’ve been working on, Dragon Age, and just general exhaustion has led me away from reading comics regularly, which is a shame, but probably necessary once in a while. But I’m catching up. And here we are, getting you some comics goodness two weeks in a row!
I’d actually never read an issue of Captain Marvel until recently. Nothing against the book, just one of those things. Finally had a chance to read three of the trades, and I loved it, obviously. Weirdly, I think reading in trade was more enjoyable than how I imagined reading it in issues, because they’re like these great vignettes about a hero that I’d always sort of had a history with (Carol was around a lot in the 80s X-Men books I read, usually getting possessed by the Shadow King or something), but I’ve been loving the look, the feel of the new book, and what it holds for the future of Carol as a character, both in comics and (presumably) in the movies.

Look! It’s a song about comics. I’m back in the swing of things. I finally had a chance to catch up with Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie’s Wicked + Divine series from Image Comics. It’s amazing, it’s got snazzily dressed youngsters who fight as gods, and heads exploding and a character named Luci, short for Lucifer. I could go into more detail, but either you already read it, or you should just go read it.
I made a song about Luci, which is a direct reference to this album, where he made songs about Lucy, aka Lucifer, so it seemed appropriate. It’s also one of my favorite albums of all time, and a huge influence on how I make music. So you should check that out.
I haven’t really made music in a while, other than the EP. I also have admittedly been completely out of touch with a lot of comics and stuff. I mainly watch TV and play Dragon Age Inquisition. What’s wrong with that?
Anyway, I’m getting back into the swing of making music for your ears, and I have some good ideas lined up, but I have to get back to work on catching up. Sometimes, life gets in the way. There’s nothing wrong with that.
I have a new EP out! Available only at Bandcamp, you can buy it for $8 digital, or $10 physical shipping out February 3. Produced by Mikal kHill, with guest vocals by kHill, Sulfur and Mega Ran! Buy at this link, or through the embedded thingamabob above.
I made this album with kHill in my ear, telling me to make the music I wanted to. And I’d say I did. It’s the best rapping I’ve done in a long time. It’s some of the more meaningful songs I’ve done in a while. And I’m very proud of it. It’s a commitment I’m making to myself, and making to you as well — to recommit myself to making the best music I can for you. It’s something that artists should do once in a while, take personal stock and re-up with themselves. We all slack off sometimes in whatever we do, but we recommit. We make good shit. I’m making that commitment to you today, and this EP is a good start on that.
I hope you’ll support by purchasing it. This is my full-time job, and the only way I can keep touring, keep making music, keep this site running is if I can sell enough merch and music along the way to keep the lights on. But you know that. You’re a part of the DIGITAL REVOLUTION, so I don’t need to tell you that. And I don’t need to tell you that if you can’t support, share it, listen to it, and enjoy it, and support where you can. There’s a lot of people out there trying to make their dream happen. Thank you for helping mine happen.
Come out and see me and Mikal on tour! Maybe I’ll do a sweet dance for you:
Adam WarRock “Scott Lang” (download MP3) Beat used: Hoodie Allen “All About It”
Haven’t we been down this road before? A superhero movie that no one believes in, that no one actually wanted, doubters and haters on the Internet talking about how a first look is underwhelming? I mean, don’t get me wrong, I’m with them to some degree. But I’d say that Marvel has built up enough good will at this point that they can do whatever they want, and I’ll buy a ticket opening night, right? I mean, sure, I would’ve loved to see Edgar Wright do this movie, but it’s still another Marvel movie, and that, to me, is always a good thing.
I wrote a song a while ago about Hank Pym a while back (strangely, that Youtube video has over 11,000 views and it wasn’t even uploaded by me), and it only seemed appropriate to do a Scott Lang song to celebrate the new movie coming out.
I have a new EP, it’s coming out January 22. Produced by Mikal kHill, featuring Sulfur, Mega Ran, and kHill. You should get ready to buy it.
Me and kHill are also going to be touring in February, so I’ll announce those dates soon. Get ready for your jelly, or something!
