Fun By Nature!

The World Building Boys of Comedy™ are finalizing the plans for the physical manifestation of Mind Under Matter Podcast at our Campout Festival.

I went to a second and final event at Lakeside Retreats in Raleigh. This one was produced by Life Is Art Studios (who is also doing our campout festival). I was blown away.

All previous concerns have been replaced with excitement and dreams. I've even decided to move to Raleigh to build a MUM world over the summer.

So Ramin Nazer and I had to do one final update episode to finalize the plan and now everything is ready to launch.

We reflect on how year one started with us building the podcast in real-time and now in season two, people will get to see us build this one-of-a-kind event.

Come and see the physical manifestation of Mind Under Matter and hang out with The WBBC™, the team, and all the other MUMies September 9 thru 11. The 8th will be Patreon Day where the OG supporters of the show will get to have a more intimate experience. The first 222 ticket buyers will be a part of the Too Easy 222 will have a token of their MUMbership in a special club.

The first video from our Life Is Art Studios performance last year drops today. Filmed during quarantine with visuals being produced live within Microdose VR then manipulated by the LIA team. Infinite thanks to those that made this possible!

Our next performance is in Asheville at Psychedelic Jam Fest 2021, we play Friday June 11th late night. Tier 1 tickets have sold out so grab yours soon! Much love

We are ElectroChemical
🦑..and so are YOU..🦑
🐙 OK! I think it is finally time to re-emerge from the virus cocoon and exist publicly once more. Start it off with some Tipper on bass, Scabbler this time.

The next videos on the docket will be a bit different. Way back in the heat of 2020 we recorded a "live" show with the Life Is Art Studios crew, but I felt that with the events of the world that it would be better not to distract. So over the next weeks we will be dropping individual track videos from that performance in the run up to some outdoor summer festival dates.

Lots of new music has been composed, with the aim being an actual ElectroChemical album. We're taking our sweet time however, as the goal is to truly represent what the group is capable of with the next release.

I am also personally working on a very special, very secret project that is music related, but not in the way you'd expect. Looking like a year or more time before I can reveal that though, so this is all I will say for now.

Truly and deeply hope for the best for everyone reading this. This span of time has been just...ridiculous and painful for so many. The value that musical connection brings was made very apparent when it was taken away, but that doesn't even touch the surface of the collective negativity the universe barfed forth on us.

🐙🐙Much love to everyone. Please get vaccinated. 🐙🐙
Still vibrating from all the energy and good vibes at our 15 Year Anniversary show! Thank you to everyone who came out or streamed the set to celebrate with us!! 🌀🏔✨

🌊 Part two! This is "Water Temple," the b-side, accompanied by sunken cities summoned by thefacesblur and Life Is Art Studios. This song seems to be resonating as much as (or even more than!) the a-side. Listen: https://ffm.to/marley-carroll-ic-wt

I love hearing from y'all - artists and fans alike - and I'll be doing an AMA on my Instagram this Friday 🤳

Follow along: https://www.instagram.com/marleycarroll/
Friends, I have two new songs out today: "Ice Cavern / Water Temple" is inspired by two elemental fragments of my creative subconscious - late '90s Warp Records and The Legend of Zelda. I tried to capture the uncanny feeling of the ice and water levels from my favorite video games using bit-crushed crystalline textures and pointillistic synth bubbles.

The music is paired with two beautiful visual teasers created by thefacesblur and Life Is Art Studios, the first of which you see here. I hope these songs infuse your monochromatic days with prismatic color. 💎

Listen / Download: https://ffm.to/marley-carroll-ic-wt

Follow on IG: https://www.instagram.com/marleycarroll/
It’s been so long since I’ve gotten to play music for you guys and I can’t even explain what the drive in show meant to me!! 🔥
Huge shout out to each and every one of you for going so hard and supporting me / this scene ❤️

Big ups to Sugar Society and Life Is Art Studios as always for throwing an absolute smasher!
