Cross-Continental Band!

by Josh Whelchel

So, it’s no secret, but the original idea of the band Poolside has long gone.  That’s why it’s time to get Ryan C. Connelly and Melinda Hershey the tools so we can create a new more powerful, MORE FANTASTIC effort.  The latest electronic work we’ve done together blows the Children of the Summer album out of the water, which is why I’m excited to do more work, and make it that much better. To do this, we’re going to have […]

A “Power of the Meat” Remix Appears {Tofu!}

by Josh Whelchel

It seems as though someone finally responded to the call for remixes of POWER OF THE MEAT that I posted on the blog a while back with vocals and stuff.  He did it to show of TOFU BOY, the secret character in Super Meat Boy that really, really sucks.  Here’s a pretty fantastically edited video along with the track.  Oh, and if it wasn’t an awesome enough premise to begin with, it’s a mashup with KILLER TOFU from that Nickelodeon […]

The Making of “Shine Tonight”

by Josh Whelchel

Here are the first 8 drafts of the OCRemix/Poolside song “Shine Tonight.”  Complete with crummy autotunage.  This is to celebrate tomorrow’s release of CHILDREN OF THE SUMMER, the first Poolside album. Shine Tonight by Poolside (please buy our album!)   Shine Tonight (D1) I woke up with this in my mind for some reason, so I put it down with some drafty super auto-tuned singage.  You can hear lyrics that changed, and a lot of the source.  The lyrics were […]

ReMix The Meat!

by Josh Whelchel

A few days ago I promised my twitter-people that when I reached 500 followers I’d put up a “Power of the Meat” remix kit.  I delayed in this process just a little bit so I could also include an INSTRUMENTAL and KARAOKE version of the song.  Now you can dress up as Meat Boy, Bandage Girl, or Dr. Fetus (or all three if you’re feeling ambitious) and sing along! (Go down a little further to get the REMIX KIT and […]

Power of the Meat

by Josh Whelchel

I CANNOT STOP PLAYING THIS GAME.  This game being Super Meat Boy, of course.  Danny’s soundtrack was released last night and it is sheer brilliance.  I was fortunate enough to be one of a handful of musicians to be included on the soundtrack doing remixes.  So I called up Melinda and we put together this diddy.  Lyrics after the jump.  (Also, go buy that soundtrack, it’s just $3.99 – YOU CAN AFFORD THAT! All of the money goes to Danny […]

Power of the Meat (feat. Melinda Hershey) (PREVIEW!!) I was recently asked to remix the soundtrack to SUPER MEAT BOY by the incredible Danny Baranowsky.  This is what is brewing.  The full track, along with a MUSIC VIDEO will be released with the official soundtrack.  And hey, I GET TO BE MEAT BOY FOR HALLOWEEN! (please keep your saws, salt, and various shenanigans away from me)
