On the first of April this year, something magical happened. But alas! It was NOT an April Fools Prank! Silly rabbit, Trix are for kids!
Instead, myself (hi, I'm Mark) and the rest of the EMAWM Team (Josh & Chris) hopped onto a Skype call and recorded this mini-concert you're hearing today! For those of you who don't know, "EMAWM Live" is basically what happens when the slick musicians that make up the EMAWM collective get together online to take turns performing awesome music for each other and the world (this session would be branded under "Nerd Central", but we didn't open the "stage" up to non-EMAWM bups this time around).
As per tradition when I write liner notes for these things, I'd like to tell you about what makes this session different from previous such sessions. If you came here hoping for a 100% unique lineup of performers, this session breaks that tradition (not that it matters, because we're all super awesome performers). However, some pretty unique stuff does happen in the nearly 48 minutes packed of fun that is this recording. Two of the songs played today are first being debuted here (but you'll have to guess which two). Additionally, you'll get to hear Josh cover "Call Me Maybe" in Japanese, as well as do a synthpop cover of YMO's "Firecracker". All things considered, the 17 tracks that make up this performance are all definitely worth a listen.
