Sample from “Growing”
This is from a track called “Growing” that we’ll be mixing at the end of August. It features an Oberheim DX drum machine that became an interesting necessity, due to our drummer living on the opposite coast.
New songs in August
I literally just finished recording a new song for Make A Rising. The song is called “growing”. I’ve been working on it for what seems like 2 years. There are 3 other songs that will be completed and mixed by the end of August.
Mixing in July
We’ll be mixing at least one new track in July. As well as mixing the soundtrack we’re composing for our Cartoon Hangover pilot. It’s called Manly. It will air on July 31st. You can check out the tumblr here.
Again sorry for the delay. We are very close to having a bunch of new songs coming down the pipeline. It’s just a matter of finding the time.
WOUNDED FHEALER SERIES: PART ONE
The first two tracks of the Wounded Fhealer Series have been posted on our BANDCAMP page. Free to download. Here’s some more information:
The Wounded Fhealer Series is Make A Rising’s latest project of releasing one or two tracks at a time, for free, until all 15 planned tracks are completed.
Once completed, the tracks will be re-sequenced with possible remixing/remastering and additional arrangements, for purchase in limited vinyl form.
The vinyl release will be called “WOUNDED FHEALERS”.
These songs stem from 6 years of working through the emotional difficulty of ended relationships, and the pursuit of spiritual breakthrough.
*Please feel to pay any amount for a track, if you’d like to support this long term project. All proceeds go to helping us pay for mixing and mastering the next pair of songs.

Music Coming Down the Pike
We’re close to completing a few of these songs. We’re discussing releasing them 2 at a time as free downloads. and limited 7″ pressings for those peeps who enjoy physical objects: 15 or 16 songs in all.
The songs will not be released in sequence of how we would imagine them to play as a full length album, but they will be released under a banner title and some kind of signifying symbol that implies a connection between the releases. At least this is how we’re thinking about handling it.
After the complete run of songs are released, I had the idea of listeners suggesting a proper running sequence, as well as which songs to cut and then putting together an official sequence with added material.
All of this is pretty theoretical at this point. At the very least, we will be releasing a 7″ in the next few months. I am going to try to book mixing/mastering time with Colin Marston in January.
Meanwhile I have been jamming with Tom Keville in an LA rehearsal space. Having fun, coming up with stuff for a new project. The plan is that it will be drums, bass, synths, and vocals. Right now it’s just drums and bass and a little bit of Moog when I can get at it. Here’s a little snippet of some idea we’re figuring out.
Hey all. We have a bandcamp website now. Because maybe that’s good for us.
Eric Slick Helps Out
Hey here’s an update. Got some auxiliary electronic drum tracks from Mr. Eric Slick today (Dr. Dog). Pretty excited about how things are slowly shaping up. Thought I would post a little snippet of an unfinished, vocal-less, unmixed track. Why not right? This is the age of sharing.
