The Cicada!

A new original song by The Ukedelics (and a dance sensation!) celebrating the 2011 cicada invasion. I had the idea for the song during the last cicada swarm 13 years ago, but didn't get it finished before they went dormant. This time around I managed to get it finished and make this little animation. Having a little too much fun with it, probably.

The Walking Bass

Do not fear for our old friend the washtub bass--it will always have a place in The Ukedelic's instrumentation--but there's an exciting, new addition; Tim Davies' Walkingbass. It's electric, bringing a new energy to the rhythm section, plus it has a rich tone that fits in great with the ukulele. You can find out more about them at the Walkingbass website. (The band is currently featured on the homepage!)
