Steve Greene new release

Steve-Greene-noir-city-streets-and-macabre

On Friday, December 4, 2020 Steve Greene has a new release – Noir, City Streets and Macabre. Dark, eerie synths swirl and bounce from ear to ear as you are systematically being stalked by an unknown and unyielding sinister force. Darkness has fallen as time runs out for your world.

Steve Greene (Detroit-based multi-instrumentalist/producer/film composer and keyboardist in the band Voyag3r) has a new 2-song release to close out the year. Noir, City Streets and Macabre is minimal, dark, twisted and sonically frames a dystopian setting where likely no one survives.

These tracks were recorded back in 2017 for 2 different compilation albums, celebrating the Halloween season. Steve Greene has freshly remastered these tracks for this release, through BandCamp.

Recorded, mixed and mastered by Steve Greene at his studio, The Battle Chamber, and cover art by Los Angeles based artist John Bergin, Noir, City Streets and Macabre is sure to haunt and terrify you.

Gear used: Moog MiniTaur, Alpha Juno 2, Alesis Ion, SCI SixTrak, GreeneBeam, Rhodes Mark V, rain stick, various hand percussion.

Release Date: 12/04/2020

Our EP is inspired by the Tiki Motel most famous as a key location as the protagonists hideout in ‘The Terminator’. We were inspired by the idea of the last days before the internet and the stories of people finding refuge or pausing at a sun bleached motel in a forgotten corner of 1980s Los Angeles. ‘555 Tiki Motel’ is our most mature album yet with three brooding heartfelt songs and two swampy b-side-tracks. Virginian Americana singer-songwriter Joseph Gearheart is the featured artist while the Swampers Damn Lieutenant Evert , Earl Jr Jackson Black , Geoff Mason, Don Jon and Romantic Ronan from Europe and Canada form the Swamp Music Players. A thoughtful and strange EP it harkens back to 1980s Americana and Retro Rock. Mixed and Mastered in Detroit at the Battle Chamber by Steve Greene it has a very American feel. Please pre-order on Bandcamp today!

New Steve Greene single, Subliminal Dark Waves

On Friday, January 3, 2020, Steve Greene released a new single entitled Subliminal Dark Waves.

Originally appearing on the Fright Night Club vol. 12 Halloween Compilation, Subliminal Dark Waves now has a worldwide release on all digital download and streaming service platforms.

steve-greene-subliminal-dark-waves

“Steve Greene is a master of mood, and using just a Sequential Circuits Prophet 6, Alesis Micron & Moog MiniTaur he builds an electronic symphony of dread in the course of this 3 1/2 minute song. Greene continues to build upon what he started with his debut solo LP Electronic Dreams for a Holographic Existence, as well as his work in Voyag3r. “Subliminal Dark Waves” is another moody slice of heavy synth to get the new year off to a great start.”

-J. Huber (Complex Distractions)
