The Social Singles – Take It Back

31 Oct

October’s Social Single, titled “Take It Back” is a downtempo tune bringing a mellow, warm and reflective tone as we head towards the winter season.  We hope you enjoy!

What are The Social Singles? Simply put, it is a collection of songs that we will be releasing online over the course of 2012.

In todays technologically advanced and socially connected world, the ability and ease of an artist to share their work with others is easier, quicker and less constrained by cost than it ever has been. Platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Bandcamp and Soundcloud (among others) have been transformed from mere information repositories to highly developed tools that artists now have to share their passion with the world.

So, as a challenge to ourselves, an offering to our wonderful supporters and in general a really fun project; Days of Rae will be writing, recording and releasing one single each month throughout 2012. We will be distributing each song completely free of charge on as many social platforms as we can think of. Thusly, throughout the year you will have these songs (dubbed “The Social Singles) available to you to download, share, repost, love, hate, praise, criticize or however else you wish to consume.

With this project, we aim to make each release unique. The production of each song will range from duo compositions recorded in songwriter Cherie Rae Cobbs’ home studio, to full band arrangements recorded and produced interstately. We also hope to feature guest musicians on select songs throughout the year.

As always, we thank you for listening as we look forward to a fun and productive year.

The Social Singles – Bend

31 Aug

Our 8th song for the Social Singles project is a track called “Bend”. Once again, we sought to experience new textures and feels as we sought out a driving beat, with soaring, hypnotic overlays and woven melody. We hope you like listening as much as we love creating. As Always…download, share and enjoy.

lyrics -

What if you’re the only thing I need
Fight my battles bend, burn and bleed
You know the only way to make me happy
Let go of what you know can hurt me

Tie my hair up, let it hang low
See beyond my uneven soul
Wage a war against my breeding mind
Show me ways to see another brighter side

Close the shade, turn down lights
Do not slip on my sinking sides
I only want to feel this way
Turn maladies to unwoven maze

It’s right this way
to feel this way

A girl like me lives in my mind
You should read the story lines
My hair’s a mess, my eyes are too
See them watching only you

See them watching only you
watching and waiting and hoping and baiting
standing on these shores
eyes blinded to the tides
we stand to fight to live to try
pushing away the pull of the moon
lighting the darkness that desires to loom
eyes blinded to the tides
we stand to fight
to love
to try

The Social Singles – Into The Pyre

31 Jul

After the slight, the end, comes a wish for never having been so she builds a pyre befitting the love once alive and vital as a means to goodbye.  It is built not of tangible materials but of memory, dreams and the moments that haunt long after he is gone. 

‘Into The Pyre’ is our seventh song in the Social Singles project and definitely keeps with the theme of trying our hand at new sounds, feels and textures. We hope you like listening as much as we love creating.  As Always…download, share and enjoy.

The Social Singles – Falling For You

27 Jun

June’s song Falling For You is a journey through the stages of intimate relationships, from idealistic beginnings to heavy-hearted endings. It explores feelings of doubt, desire, regret and ultimately love guided by the give and take of instruments, the dives and climbs of melody and an honest look at what makes and breaks the heart.

The Social Singles – Playground

25 May

In the spirit of these Social Singles and trying things new, we offer you May’s single “Playground”, which is an intimate, stripped down ballad penned and played by Cherie Rae on piano. We hope you find it a heartfelt and lovely way to kick off this summer season.

And as always, download….share…and enjoy!

The second big reason we are thrilled about this month’s offering is we brought on a very special guest artist to join us in the recording process. Eric Badger has lent us his incredible talent on the beautiful mandolin and we couldn’t be happier about it. So take a listen and as always…download, share and enjoy!

The Social Singles – Betajar

22 Apr

 

April’s single is a fun change of pace for us. First of all, we not only wrote the song with the full band across multiple states via email, dropbox and soundcloud. But we also challenged ourselves by completely flipping our writing process upside down. Every songwriter/band has a typical way and order to which they write. We took that order and spun it a complete 180. The result was…we feel…refreshing. A change from our norm but yet not a departure from out sound.

The second big reason we are thrilled about this month’s offering is we brought on a very special guest artist to join us in the recording process. Eric Badger has lent us his incredible talent on the beautiful mandolin and we couldn’t be happier about it. So take a listen and as always…download, share and enjoy!

Visit Illegal Pete’s throughout April for Autism Awareness Month!

2 Apr

http://illegalpetes.com/blog/community/illegal-petes-announces-smother-autism-campaign-in-support-of-autism-awareness-month-joshua-school/

You can help us help the Joshua School by smothering your burrito, through donations, and by attending a few events at our DU location.

During the entire month of April (Autism Awareness Month), Illegal Pete’s will be working to extinguish the challenges of Autism Spectrum Disorder by raising funds for The Joshua School through the Smother Autism Program. Illegal Pete’s will be donating $1 to The Joshua School every time a customer smothers their burrito and will also give customers an opportunity to donate $1 in exchange for a leaf that helps grow the abilities of all and can be signed and displayed in stores. Our mobile ordering app, Pete’s Mobile, will give customers the chance to “round up” your order as a straight donation.

The Illegal Pete’s DU location will be hosting two events to support the program. A Smother Autism Party takes place on Saturday, April 14th from 8pm to close. Customers can donate $15 in return for all you can drink Coors and Coors Light, or donate $25 for all you can drink Odell’s and Coors. Local bands, the music of Robert Harrison, and Days of Rae, will perform at the event. On Thursday, April 26th, local artist, The Epilogues will be playing a benefit concert at this location.

Supporting sponsors of these events include Niman Ranch, Coors, Odell’s, and Splick It.
