ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Soon, our bodies will have reached such an evolutionary peak, that all world records will have been achieved, and attaining new ones will be impossible. Next, the conscious and fruitful mind will replace the vanity driven obsessions we hold with our bodies. By doing so, we shall venture into the next level of our existence. Who needs competition when you already know your opponent’s next move? Only through pure conscious though will we attain a new world record.

As I begin to explore our beautiful planet, I’ve discovered that I will only understand our true reality by experiencing it on my own. Never let anyone do your thinking for you. My only hope is that we can break away from the shackles of money and other false truths, in hopes of learning to “LIVE,” rather than “make a living.” Easier said than done, but still a path worth engaging.

As I'm sure you know by now, cronkite satellite is a one man band with a full band sound. A Boss RC-50 loop station is used to create his (my) unique style of music live, and also, in the studio. Also used to record the album "New World Record" was a basic acoustic guitar, an AKG Perception 400 condenser mic, a BOSS SP-202 Dr. Sampler, a Korg Electribe SX, various hand drums, a harmonica, a hand held digital recorder (Used mostly in Kerala, India and heard at the end of "Writes Me"), a few King Fisher beers, and a lot of patience. New World Record was written, produced, recorded, mixed, and mastered by cronkite satellite, using only the program “Garageband.” I know the album has some "pops and clicks" here and there (which I tried to medic), but because I never went to school for sound engineering, my ability met its match. However, I can rest my head at night knowing that my music is REAL, it came from my soul, and it's not over produced. It’s worth noting that there is NO auto tuning on this album (not to insinuate that I have any idea how to sing, but you get my point).

I can’t believe you read this… You are a true fan.

Thank you for supporting the arts!

Making Friends out of Enimies
Cronkite Satellites new album "New World Record" is a masterpiece of honesty, humor, and unforgettable grooves. Yes, he is a one man band and yes he creates all the music live in the studio as he records. That is amazing but completely irrelevant to the album because Cronkite Satellite's music is so well put together that you'd never know it's one guy and a loop machine. The final track “Down to Earth” is a ruckus combination of driving blues guitar, feverish hand drums, and reminders of who you are listening to, “Cronkite Satellite, down to Earth like a Meteorite.” This album is packed with head bobbing and ass shaking music. What separates this from all the other music out there is the honesty, kindness, humor, and insight into his soul and the souls of the soulless that run this world. The fifth track “Sincerely Simo” is infectious and a must listen. “The Sound Guy Hates Me” is hilarious and honest. “Greetings from the Doha” showcases his life, love, and absence from hate. “The Song Writes Me” is clever and eerily haunting and the tenth track “When I’m Older” is a showcase for his voice and versatility. Cronkite Satellite said it best on “Sincerely Simo” “Who wants to make original music anymore? Well, for one I do, cause I’m not a corporate whore” This album is a must have for anyone who is a fan of any style of music. Impress your friends and play them this album. You’ll be the first to do so and that will make you cool.
The first track "Birth of Earth" shows how the global community has impacted his music. As the album
