Good Luck Knowing

mfm13 frontartist: Tom Phonic mfm13
release date: August 5th, 2012

The futuristic, yet low-tech, metropolis is always alive. Mechanoids, automatons and robots of all sizes, shapes and colors move around constantly, sometimes crashing into each other, creating ever-evolving patterns. The city is tiny; so tiny that it can fit on the tip of a needle. Among the inhabitants there are also tiny humans, people like you and me. On sunny days, they go out to meet each other, make friends, fall in love. In the eternally changing scenery, the buzz of the city becomes their soundtrack: the whirrs of moving parts turn into leads and pads, the rhythmic sounds of switches and locks transform to complex syncopated beats and the roar of motors provides the bassline. On sunny days, the tiny people sing and dance to this soundtrack, while the entire city flows in the background.

Low Grade Chronic Sadness - Thanks to Etta James as her music has been so inspirational to me. The song was completed on the day she left us on this planet.
Organizims - Thanks to Andy Gladding of “Cold Flavor Repair” for letting me borrow his Rhodes to record for this song.
Logic In Love - Thanks to Mary French who stayed up all night with me recording this wonderful song and contributing her beautiful voice to the album.
Mc Speakerson - Thanks to my father and brother, James and Eric Steitz, for contributing hammer dulcimer, penny whistle and guitar recordings for the making of this track.
Father Along - Thanks to “Defense” who contributed his entire song off “Snitches Get Shot” for a remake on this album.
