Life After Failing & Friends @ HappyLIVEs #13 2006-09-18

Life After Failing's 2006-09-18 show at the Yoyogi Park Outdoor Stage was recorded for us by the event organizers. We're pleased to share the MP3 as it was given to us by HappyLIVEs. We had a great time. This was the first show of the so-called Life After Justin tour. On guitars were Toshiyuki Takeo and Arata Kaneko.

This is a big file (71299248 bytes). All of the material was created spontaneously without any prior rehearsal whatsoever. ENJOY!

A New Song

At a recent rehearsal last year -- 2005-11-11 -- the band worked on a new song that we decided to call Summit. We were pretty pleased with how the song turned out. It really is a perfect example of how the band works through jams to create various different textures. Best of all, it gives a much clearer expression of how the band can jam in a free-form setting rather than trying to create a concise statement as we did when recording Small Light.

Summit weighs in at 11: 37 and is 10.6 MB.

Samples from Small Light

We know you're curious about how Small Light sounds, so we've pulled samples from the mixes and encoded them to put on the site for download. Free, of course! Most samples are approximately 45 seconds in length, but we thought you should have a full download of our song Kunundrum. Enjoy!
