Album Profile: "Uh, No"
"Uh, No" is the first album from Sun Holes. It took the better part of a year to complete. It includes 7 tracks, all of which depict the darker side of life.
The first track, "Heart Lost, Not Found" tells the fictional story of an obsessed man who is convinced that his lover was going to cheat on him. This song was originally written and recorded in the 1980's on a Tascam 4-track analog recorder, using drum machines and synthesizers. The version on "Uh, No" was recorded in 2012 in a digital studio, using real instruments.
The second track, "Sinking To A New Low" reflects the feelings associated with hitting a point in life and not accomplishing what you set out to.
The third track, "Nothing Is Alright" is more of a short, musical essay about stalking and identity theft. This song was also originally written and recorded in the 1980's on a Tascam 4-track analog recorder, using drum machines and synthesizers. The version on "Uh, No" was recorded in 2012 in a digital studio, using all real instruments. The original storyline was actually about a stalker and his prey, so it's basically the same story.
The fourth track, "The Evils Inside" tells the fictional story of a couple in crisis, and how their friends and family are completely oblivious to it.
The fifth track, "Maniac" tells the fictional story of a mad man who knows that he's gone off the deep end.
The sixth track, "The Ballad Of MJRKC" tells the fictional story of a man who long ago befriended a homeless person. The 'MJRKC' became the short way of writing Major Casey. I wrote this song because I felt that the story needed to be told. It also happens to be the most complicated song that I have ever produced, with hundreds of tracks, numerous drum kits and a choir-full of vocals.
The seventh, last and title track, "Uh, No" is also more of a short, musical essay. It's about social media, and its effects on society.
