Download: Andy Ditzler – “Another Customer”
Download: Andy Ditzler – “Economics”
Andy Ditzler is wild artist: this former theatrical production is part TMBG intelligent whimsy, part Ken Nordine spoken word, part Laurie Anderson, part...well, who knows? It's all over the map, and that's why we decided to work with Andy. He's so wonderfully different than all of the other stuff out there. As much as we love the indie rock, it's nice to encounter an artist who is striving for something larger than band with four members that rocks out. With a healthy sense of humor, the song lyrics range among technology, the metaphysics of TV news, a Buddhist samba, economics for beginners, politics, and love in 21st-century America. Songs From Yes and No is a witty, poignant, and illuminating view of current events, and a provocative musical vision. He's got samba, jazz, rock, and electronic influences scattered about, sometimes in the same song! He even has Outkast's sax player!
