Brad's new album Antiglot was released on October 6, 2017. It is an album composed only using vocals layers and body sounds. It was produced by taking input sounds and producing them as though they were instruments, with lead vocals set atop. There are no actual instruments used in the composition, and no lyrics. It is an equally energetic and cathartic collection of songs -- sometimes meditative, sometimes invigorating -- inspired by the current American political climate. Cover art was painted by Naya Cheyenne. Click here to preview and order.
You've never heard anything quite like Brad Walsh's new album Antiglot before. Composed entirely of "body sounds" — layered lyric-less vocals and the noise he could make without instruments — the ambitious work is a resonant soundscape, in turns arresting and meditative... Antiglot just might be the cathartic listening experience we all need.
Phenomenal... a complete departure from what [Brad's] done in the past.
Antiglot is modern, melodic, haunting, and sophisticated — with the organic human sounds giving it a strange timeless vulnerability.
From the opening track forward, Brad Walsh's new album Antiglot pulls the mind and spirit to a state of active meditation. For all its mystical elements—and the moments of rhythmic hypnotism—this is not background music... lush and uncommon soundscapes manifest.
Brad Walsh’s new album Antiglot is unlike anything you’ve ever heard before! It’ll both energize and mellow you out, which might sound confusing, but trust us.
Brad Walsh has many voices... he’s known for his outspoken political views/activism on social media... Antiglot has a different sort of voice, though — the set is composed entirely of vocal layers and body sounds. No instruments, no lyrics. ["Boadicea"] beautifully shows off this unusual approach.
Brad appeared on the AOL program BUILD Series to discuss Antiglot with Matt Forte on October 6. View the full appearance below:
To celebrate the release of Antiglot, Brad commissioned The Orsano Project to perform a dance piece to the entire album at Pier 59 Studios in New York. View video highlights of that event, filmed by Natasha Harri Fuller, below:
Brad's last album Six Infinite was released in October 2016. It included thirteen tracks, plus three digital bonus tracks available on iTunes and other digital retailers. You can purchase the album on iTunes or Amazon, and stream it on most digital streaming services. Cover image was photographed by Brad Walsh and art-directed by visual & performance artist Anna Hafner.
A deeply personal guerrilla pop album... [Six Infinite] tells a series of dark-edged stories about love and friendship over layered, haunting electronica beats.
How often does one press play on a new album and feel as if they're hearing something that defies the genres they've known thus far? As a considered, uncommon and cohesive piece of electronic music, Six Infinite makes us excited for all the [music] Walsh will continue to imagine, produce and share.
The album's smooth tones and infectious beats serve as the base for emotional lyrics spurred by a sudden separation... However, Walsh is not just making music; he's using his platform to take a stand for what he believes in.
Brad's Secondary EP was released on March 24, 2016. It included five new songs, and guest appearances from Maria McKee, T.O.N.E-z, and Bossy Love. Cover art was shot at Salvation Mountain in the desert of Niland, California. It's available at all digital retailers, and on CD or deluxe USB format at the Brad Walsh online shop.
Brad's first new music in four years, the Primary EP, was released on 5 November 2015. It featured six new songs and was the first of two EPs. It is now available digitally on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Tidal, and most other digital retailers and streaming services, as well as in Deluxe USB format exclusively here on this website. The USB device contains the full EP, digital booklet, selected back catalog, and three HD music videos. The first single from Primary was "Destroyer" (video below). Other songs on the EP featured guest appearances from Juliana Hatfield, Emm Gryner, and Luscious Jackson. Paper Magazine called the Primary EP "indie-electro gold" and "a smorgasbord of brooding indie dance music, with beatific synths and pummeling bass." PopCrush called it "vibrant, pulsating" and "a collection of thumping, shape-shifting, left-of-center electronic productions that seeks to shake up the staleness of pop." On November 6, the EP peaked at #1 on the iTunes New Releases Pop chart. More information, including all lyrics, can be found on the Primary page.
