RSVP!
July 2, 2012
One year ago today, we were recording the sights and sounds of a typewriter and beer bottles, halfway through our 2011 song of the week project. Ahhh memories.

TODAY, we ask you to RSVP to our upcoming show at Mississippi Pizza, Thursday July 5th! Check out the details and give us a thumbs up if you haven't already. :)



Here we go, 2012!
January 15, 2012
Welcome to the new year, everyone! We are pleased and proud to announce that we've made it out alive from our 2011 Song of the Week video project. If you missed any, or just want to revisit our year's worth of work, you can watch the 2011 video playlist on YouTube.

As we start on the next chapter, we'd love to get some of your insight. Which songs did you like most? Least? And why? Our most recent blog post has the full version of our question.

We hope to hear from you soon, and look forward to sharing more music and creativity in 2012 with you all.


Colors of... My Strong Suit... In the Basement!
November 30, 2011
Tomorrow it will be December, and we'll be in the very last month of our 2011 Song of the Week project. As we sprint to the finish of this year, we wanted to share with you a recent (but not our most recent) video, for our song "My Strong Suit." The making of this video put our feet in the Willamette in mid-November, lay us down in the grass in the rain, brought us bright colors and empty rooms... it was a very small but very fun adventure.

Our efforts this year have been just that - a great adventure - but not a small one. We are grateful to have the time, energy, and creativity to share our music with you, as well as the resources and support of our community and friends in the process. As the end of our adventure looms on the horizon, it's hard not to be reflective, thankful, ponderous... and busier than ever! Hope you enjoy this video, the backstory on the blog, and the rest of our upcoming videos over the next month!

PS. The title comes from our other two recent videos, "In The Basement" and "Colors of the Wind," which can both be found on our blog or on YouTube!


My Regret
October 2, 2011
Happy October, everybody! Can't believe we've arrived already to falling leaves, foggy mornings, and the last quarter of our 2011 Song of the Week project. With just over 3 months of videos to go, we are getting nostalgic already. (Just kidding... we are too busy to be nostalgic.)

Below is our latest release, "My Regret." We think we've come a long way from our first videosong ("Strongest Drug"), and a REALLY long way from our first Song of the Week, "Baby Steps." Hope you enjoy!

PS. Be sure to check out the blog for the songs, stories and videos you might have missed: soundsemantics.wordpress.com


HARRY!
July 17, 2011
We got some great noise from a great crowd for our video this week, and promised we would feature their video on our homepage - so here it is! This one's in honor of all the Harry Potter fans out there, in this hour of mourning :)

Blow Me a Kiss...
May 1, 2011
Just wanted to say hello and let you all know what we're up to. We are relentlessly pursuing our song-a-week project for 2011 and have seriously expanded our possibilities with videos. We have several videosongs out and a few 'fancier' music videos. This week we did a cover which you can check out, along with all the rest, on our blog: soundsemantics.wordpress.com I'm posting on of my favorites below.

Oh and also shows! We have a Portland date coming up - Jade Lounge on June 19th. Mark your calendars! Plus we're playing at the Oregon State Fair in August which should be super fun. Hope to see you all out and about :)
