Who doesn’t want a song about Squirrel Girl, right? Big ups to friend-of-the-site Erica Henderson on the Marvel gig. If you don’t remember, she did the last Rap-A-Thon poster for me (image), and she’s just a generally cool lady. Also big ups to Ryan North, who I don’t know personally, but whose work I love. If you haven’t checked out Marvel Comics’ Squirrel Girl, you should. It’s great. I wish Marvel would do more of this kind of stuff, it reminds me of the Marvel Adventures comics that used to be around. There was some great stuff in that series.

I’m generally done touring for a while. But I got some interesting shows on the horizon:

“The Captain” [Captain Marvel - free tunes]

THE CAPTAIN COVERAdam WarRock “The Captain” (MP3 Download)

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.

You should check it out. Here, get the first trade here.

“Luci” (Wicked + Divine)

LUCI COVERAdam WarRock “Luci” (download MP3)
Beat used: Kno “Still With Me”

Untitled-159

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.

Oh also, you should buy the first trade of Wicked + Divine here:
The Wicked + The Divine, Vol. 1: The Faust Act

“Caught Up” [free tunes]

Beat used: Classified “Find 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?

Nick-Miller-Watch-TV-All-DayAnyway, 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.

My voice sounds weird in this track, doesn’t it?

Anyway, you can still buy my new EP, Gifted Student, for only $8 digital! If you want a physical copy, you have to come to a live show. When am I doing a live show you ask? Why, when I go on tour with Mikal kHill!

Gifted Student! New EP now available!

AW_GS_Cv1

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:
