about

Along with many other musical projects Lxnnnie worked on in 2003, he also created over 2 albums worth of songs that were never completely finished. The music was laid down on a 16-track digital recorder with every track being utilized for the instrumentation. The idea was that the vocals would be overdubbed in another studio at a later date. That idea never materialized and thus the instrumental tracks have sat on a hard drive for the past 13 years. Back in 2003 when this batch of songs were first devised, they were separated into 2 albums, 'Slumberdust' and 'Beyond Neon.' Lyrics were written for every song, however, as time wore on and other projects took president, it began to seem more and more unlikely that the vocals would ever meet the tracks. Rather than keep them collecting dust, the 2 albums have now been released as instrumental collections for 2016.

All the songs are of a higher- fi quality, hold a verse/chorus/verse structure and share a mix of electronic and live instruments, With a stronger emphasis on the electronic side, the music showcases programmed beats, layers of melodic synths and a few sound bites here and there, primarily used as intros and outros. Both albums generally have a bit of a 1980's-Nickelodeon-cartoonish air about them, with the one album ‘Slumberdust’ having more of a mellow, laid-back vibe and the other album ‘Beyond Neon’ a more zanier, quirkier feel. One might describe the songs on these albums as "music for adult toddlers." Fans of Lxnnnie will find both albums to be an interesting and enjoyable listen, as well as possibly being good background music for cleaning the house or playing with little kids... on acid.

All songs written by Lxnnnie except "Happy Rainbow" written by Ryan Garifine. All instruments performed and programmed by Lxnnnie with the exception of the keyboard solos on "Dropping Apples," I Hate Music," and "Razorblade Sunbeam" which were performed by Ryan Garifine.
