Accidental Plan Studios

Hey all,  

Made up a little webstie for the home studio I'm running here in Nashville, and thought you might like to see it.  Please recommend it to any friends that need audio work done (even remote mixing!).

Hey Friends!

Mar 20 2013

In most recent IBIHP news, we've been chatting about doing a new Hotpants single/b-side or EP during Jim's summer semester break.  I think we can definitely say single, and we'll go from there depending on material!

Thanks and love always,

Songs to Dance to.

S2D2 has landed.  This isn't even music to be proud of.  Borderline embarrassing.  Wanna sing for us?  Open applications.  Email.

Let's fill you in...

Dec 19 2012

We've been busy at work working on a new side project called, Songs To Dance To.  Website is in the works, and it will be full of animated squirrel gifs and awful shit you may have seen on Ally McBeal.

Have most of a full album together demo-wise, and are currently hunting down the elusive new members to join this ragtag group of amazing*. 

*Of course, amazing is a biased word and may be hopelessly inaccurate depending on your viewpoint.

So yea, buckle your seatbelts Nashville, cause your xmas list may have been filled early.  '13 may be the year of S2D2*.

*Statement possibly wholly inaccurate.

Spoiler Alert!

Oct 28 2012

Did you have your fill of our last single, Casual Chris?  If not, go check out itunes or amazon and get your copy!  Even the man himself, ABC's Chris Harrison, retweeted and called it "genius!"  WOOT!

Our new single is out today, and it's called Spoiler Alert.  It's more synthpop but that just makes it even more fun.  You can stream it for free at our bandcamp, and pay what you'd like to if you want to download it!  All good in the hood!

Go nuts,

Retooling

Sep 09 2012

A lot of people have been asking us, "what's next?" 

A good question indeed.  Firstly, let us thank everyone's who's supported us, seen us play, bought a CD, wears a tshirt, rocks a button, etc.  It certainly isn't easy to stop when you're surrounded by such epic coolness.  You all are awesome, and we really hope you love, and continue to love, the music we made/will make.

While the band itself is taking an indefinite break, my bro and I are never really going to stop.  It's not possible!  When we started rebuilding musically with a drum machine in Nashville 3 years ago, we were debating between calling ourselves I Believe in Hotpants and Farewell Andromeda Strain.  While both certainly plausible, after discussing for about 5 seconds, we registered www.ibelieveinhotpants.com.

It's that kind of humor and spontaneity that really fuel us in music and in life.  With that in mind, we're going to take I Believe in Hotpants and use it as an umbrella for pretty much everything Moritz/Moritz.  :-) 

But still you ask, "What next?"  Currently, we've got a new single that's dropping on Monday, but it's probably not what you expect.  It's called Casual Chris, and we wrote, recorded, made video and upped it to itunes and the like in 2 days.  It's humor + spontaneity + catchy pop goodness, and despite what it sounds like, is completely I Believe in Hotpants.

Beyond that, we're keeping an eye out for sweet acoustic gigs, and not really actively seeking a drummer.  If one comes our way, we'll certainly be interested, but I think the days of scouring craigslist with corny ads are over.  So, the new page is turned.  Let it rain, bitches...we'll be safe under the new I Believe in Hotpants umbrella.

Love,
Mike and Kevin

The End of an Era

Aug 31 2012

Next Thursday night at the High Watt will be our last show with Jim!  Life comes swift and hard, and unfortunately, hotpants often times doesn't fit in.  :-(  So please come out and let's have an amazing time! 

As for the future?  Might just be back to acoustic shows and drum machine demos, friends! 

Love,
ibelieveinhotpants

Well, something's come up.  Basically, everything but these two upcoming shows is on hold.  So, come on out and see hotpants while you can.  Love you all.

Dog Days of Summer

Jul 27 2012

It's so hot in TN this summer.  We're just enjoying AC as much as possible.  We'll be hitting the studio in the next couple weeks to track a new single and special b-side or two.  Also going to hopefully crank out a video to either accompany that song and/or another. 

A couple new shows added later in the summer/early fall as well!  Check those out at the shows page.  Also, again, if you haven't gotten a hold of our new EP, you can do so for free at our noisetrade!  The link is in the news article below this one!

Love,
IBIHP
