Super-happy to have some Chow Chow Music backing an Emily’s List video celebrating all of the women who were elected into office on election day 2012.  Hooray!

Bringing Brevity to Drug Music back coverAnd it’s here! A new collection of nine songs wherein Chow Chow Music fights against the tyranny of length that has strangled an entire droney, blissed-out, psychoactive, spacey and indulgent music genre. On Bringing Brevity to Drug Music, Chow Chow Music has doubled tremolo rates, halved delay pedal repeats and entirely done away with meandering vocals…all in the interest of saving your valuable time!  No song exceeds four minutes.  In less time than it takes to watch two viral videos you can hear one of nine new and strange instrumentals that have nothing to do with drugs yet, miraculously, SOUND like they might!

You can download the album on iTunes, Bandcamp, Amazon or whatever other music downloading service tickles your fancy.

Or maybe you just want to stream them?

Perhaps you need visuals? Well then check out the videos! (With more to come.)

And remember…

NO to DOPE, UP with HOPE, SHORTER drug songs.

On August 1st, 2012, Tim Paul suggests that you visit Chick-Fil-A in a very special way. And perhaps I’ll never hear our song Cookies the same way again.

Good ol’ Summer Song from Doomsday Scenarios got a new lease on life as the soundtrack to a fantastic pitch teaser for a show about comediennes in Chicago. Awesome work by Fruit Bonus Films…hopefully this gets picked up!

{Drug Music, Coming Soon}

It’s getting exciting over at Chow Chow Music HQ. Our second album is about to be released, and it makes drug references. The 9-song collection is receiving its final buff and polish (that is, mastering) up at Moontower Recording Studio, and the very talented James Diotte of Between the Pine is finishing up some artwork and whatnot. In fact, here he is in the midst of his musical composition process:

Which resulted in this beautiful work (that you can, and should, purchase):

Nice work, everyone. More soon.

Chow Chow Music has entered the political fray this year. That is, the non-partisan yet humorous fray. See here a few examples of some of the goofier CCM tunes supporting the pursuit of truth and justice over at FlackCheck.

Some silly Chow Chow Music for a fun video. They’re 99% sure they can make money for you.
