HOSTP Art: “Respectable Mr. Wah” by B. Pavlica

A mostly-starving starship captain needs wealthy patrons to survive, and we were lucky enough to host a vinyl tycoon on his way back to earth. Yeah, you read that correctly, a vinyl tycoon. I don’t pretend to know what the music industry is doing, but I’ll be happy to take their money if they need

Thank You, Anthrocon

I’ve had a full week to recover from Anthrocon, so I should probably tell you how awesome it was. To be honest, though, I didn’t see much of Anthrocon… what I took part in was a multi-day music fest with short bouts of costuming and drinking. This year seems to be the emergent year for

HOSTP “Digital Vinyl” Version Launches Today

The “Digital Vinyl” version of High Orbit Saves The Pandas will be released EXCLUSIVELY to my Officer’s Club today. Wait… what is DIGITAL VINYL? It’s the next best thing to actual vinyl: These are the files that WOULD have been etched into vinyl if we’d made it that far. Differences in mastering give the music

Remixing “Join The Conversation”

My latest remix effort, taking a song I released in 2007 and giving it the punch it truly deserves. I say “remix”, but really I re-created it from the ground up. The only original recording was the vocal track. I couldn’t do this kind of serious exploratory work without the support of my Officers. If

I Want To See YOU At Anthrocon 2015

Fellow prisoners, Robot Army members, Officers, aliens, and sentient clouds… we are putting on a bigass concert at Anthrocon next month.

Who pays for a room party anyway?

If you’ve ever been to one of my shows, you know I’ve got an after-party after each of them. In fact, you may have seen people wearing wristbands with my name on them for the rest of the convention. At Fur the ‘More this past weekend, there were plenty of you who pitched in to

Mr. Abrams – Live at TFF 2015

What happens when Fortran Prison’s evil Robot Warden demands a sacrif— er, volunteer from the audience? JD Puppy finds out as we play one of our newest songs, Mr. Abrams. Remember what I said last week about The Officer’s Club? Well if you join right now you’ll be able to see and download the entire

Introducing the Officer’s Club

I can’t do this alone. Every captain needs a crew that’s backing him up and defending the ship against alien pirates, toxic space putty, and decaf. But a captain’s worst enemies aren’t evil intelligent beings, they’re frustration and obscurity. After all, this ain’t exactly Starfleet, I’m a small-time operator trying to punch big holes in

My Thoughts on Vision

There will always be people of limited vision telling us what’s impossible. I’ve planted my hopes and dreams in the fertile fields of sci-fi, fantasy, furry, and music because they are, by definition, the realms of unfettered vision. The kinds of people who dream of the impossible seem to inspire those who shave off the

Congrats! High Orbit Saves The Pandas by Matthew Ebel is now playing on Pandora.

High Orbit Saves The Pandora

It’s hard to believe that it was two months ago I asked for help from the Robot Army to storm the gates of Pandora Radio. I was stunned that, after adding seven of my albums to their library, they would pass on the newest release (especially when it’s probably the best-sounding record I’ve released so

“I Know You’re There” Live at TFF 2015

So it’s taken me a while to finally mix the live recording we got from Texas, but I finally posted the full concert for my Officer’s Club yesterday. Runtt and I had been looking forward to TFF for weeks and weeks, mostly thanks to the 8 feet of snow we were contending with in Boston

Let’s Explore Someplace New

A trance remix of one of my older songs, “Two Stars.” This is the start of an exploratory journey for me, working with dance music when I’m so used to piano rock. I won’t be posting every one of these explorations (at least not right away), I’ll only be sharing these with my officers as

High Orbit Saves The Pandas is now PG-13

As I’ve always said, f*ck censorship. However, not everyone feels that way. So as promised on the back of the CD, you can now get censored versions of the saucier tracks from High Orbit Saves The Pandas in case you want to play the album in mixed company. The tracks are available exclusively at www.matthewebel.com/savethepandas
