52 HOUSE CONCERTS IN 52 WEEKS

IMG_2079

I will be by myself, attached only to a guitar and a backpack, and will be doing a series of house concerts throughout Europe.

I need you in a particular city who will find a large house (maybe a coffee house if no houses are suitable), hopefully that can comfortably fit 50-200 people, not bother the neighbors, easy for parking.

Then you will invite your friends to come to this concert at the house which I will play. And even better, you will decide the playlist and also vote for a cover song that I will play at the concert!

You want me to come to your place?

Send me a private message (artist page, please) with your contact details and I will get in touch!

All the best,
-robert

BACK CATALOGUE

I can finally announce that the full back catalogue is soon available in all usual outlets on the world wide web. Today I am editing the files for the Ocean Sessions EP from 2007 and happy to let you know that it will include, for the first time since its release, the song Without A Heart I’d Rather Die that was a part of the original sessions. A longer version of U (Try, Try, Try) as originally only available on the CD version is also part of the new digital release.

ORIGINAL POST:

 

We have spent the last couple of months redesigning the website (www.robertpost.no) and getting ready for launching it together with my new album being released. Today the album is out and I am so happy about it. It’s been quite a frustrating journey to get this album out to say the least. I don’t have any clues how many times it supposedly was scheduled for a release but I guess it speaks for the whole process, because so many things have moved forward in a slow pace the last couple of years. I have been moving forward only when feeling creative, I only worked on my music when inspired, and to be honest, I sometimes like it better not being part of the music industry. I love the music, but not the industry.

 

Anyways, things are different now. I have found peace by sitting on the fence for a while and I have made my way through concentrating on what I like the best and never compromise on my career. It’s all controllable if you only control it yourself. Through innumerous opportunities and not being able to pick the right one I have seen myself go down. Now trying my best to choose a direction of perfection and profession of a different kind.

 

I see good things coming. And the start is with this album; Disarm & Let Go.

 

The album is available to buy from all major downloading stores around the world.

 

A hard copy of the album is available to purchase from:

cdon.eu and platekompaniet.no

 

I hope you like it!

 

All the best,

-robert

 

WITHOUT A HEART I’D RATHER DIE

I have had some requests about making this song available for the public. And it is one of those songs people search my website for. Now I have uploaded the song on my SoundCloud page for you to check out. The song was originally recorded for the Ocean Sessions EP but only released as a bonus track for the initial iTunes release in 2007 on Nettwerk Records. Have not been available since, but will be included on the LP version of Disarm & Let Go / Ocean Sessions EP that will be cut to vinyl directly from analog masters. Due out TBC.

THE BUTTON MOULDER’S WALTZ

On February 20 I posted this on Facebook.

So I guess I had to do it.

Listen in context of the dogme-like way of which I was producing it. I haven’t used any other recording equipment than the built-in microphone on my Mac and a few software instruments. It was quite a stressful recording situation but at the same time I found it creatively challenging in positive terms. It was moments of fun and some of despair… banging my head against the wall for the obvious reasons you would experience if ever trying to record a bass guitar or drums through a PC-microhone. Even worse – the vocals…

I leave you to it, and present you THE BUTTON MOULDER’S WALTZ:

pt 1 be kind
pt 2 buttom moulder’s waltz
pt 3 fair game
pt 4 operation odyssey dawn

UPDATE 2013
Since I have decided to call my new album The Button Moulder and that some ideas from this production is involved in that I have to take down the free downloads for now. It may be that I will make it available again. But as for now… You gotta wait for THE BUTTON MOULDER on October 25, 2013.

It was done on this:

And finally, as promised – I made the artwork in the Photo Booth!

Best,
-robert

PS i did use pro tools to cut the final wav file and photoshop elements for the title on the artwork. that’s it.
