When Hindershot did their much-publicized (by Hindershot) tour of the West Coast in 2011, their final stop was a little bar in Merced, California. There, they played with a nice bunch of fellows named Kid Mud. Months later, after the release of the Curse Us All EP, Sean from Kid Mud remixed “Rain Fare” into an exciting, upbeat electro-ballad. He describes his side-project Seanario thusly:
“Seanario started because my other solo project (Kid Mud) turned into a full band. When Kid Mud started, it was just me recording in my room and doing everything myself. I had a handful of songs and asked a couple friends to do a live show, and then it just kind of took form from there. I kind of lost that outlet of just locking myself in my little studio and recording everything from start to finish. So I decided I needed something new.
I decided to go the route of doing everything 'inside the box' and making it straight digital music plus vocals. … I have always been a Daft Punk, Mr. Oizo fan, but in 2007 the French electro scene blew up and I loved it. I'm too lazy to actually watch how they make the music, so this is me making music in that style with no training but just by ear. It's super fun and challenging, and at the same time, I have lost couple pounds dancing while making it.”
According to Sean, The Seanario EP (or possibly full album, depending on how many songs he gets done) will release at the end of June or beginning of July, 2012. He's also working on the soundtrack for a documentary film.
