Description
All Fall Down is track #1 of our RPM Challenge entry "Let Your Mind Stay".

The RPM Challenge dictates that a CD of at least 10 songs or 35 minutes in length be created from scratch in the month of February. Bryn Corbett aka Particledots and Kevin Jones aka Bud embraced the opportunity to work together long distance (Phoenix AZ / Brooklyn NY) having done so in the past along with Michael2 and others.

The first week Bud posted 5 demos to the shared drop box (mostly guitar - bass - drum ideas) which Particle proceeded to run through his blender. What came back were often radical remixes enhanced by synths and other sonic perversions. Bud then added vocals or some other noise and stuck it back in the box.

So it went back and forth without a word spoken and virtually no comments or directions via email.


Many thanks to Bud for inviting me to collaborate on this project - I had a blast.


I think this is one of my favourites from the whole CD (if not my fave). That choppy, insistant guitar sound sets the mood and it just doesnt stop till the end. The call and response vocals - bud's background wail v/s particle's 'talk-singing' produces an interesting dynamic. Oh, lets not forget that sliding up and down off centered talking heads-like bass line that propels the whole thing like some CBGB energy engine from the 'good old days'...

Who knows WTF I am talking about here but I do know I just 'like' this - A LOT

The rest of the CD can be found here: Let Your Mind Stay at Month of Sundays

kevin was the energy and spirt
behind this - i was very glad i was able to contribute and collaborate

i think we ended up which sounds like both of us individually but at the same time sounds like nothing we could have done on our own

how the hell did we manage that??

Cool Guitar Riff.
Really like the intro and the background vox. Well done! Sort of has an 80's vibe to it.
Check out my latest song called Don't Leave. (Concept)

Very cool
stuff here. You guys do still remind me of She Wants Revenge a bit.

The bass line keeps the groove going through this one. The groove is very styling BTW.

You guys make a good team!

You did a great job of taking some basic demo riffage
and creating an engaging song. All of your first choices are so good and your instincts for what works are so strong that doing these 11 tracks in a month was always an adventure and never a chore. I love the lead vocals - another good choice.

i'm most impressed
with how you guys have created your own real, distinct sound in such a short period of time. it's such a cool throwback vibe...and its so freakin' INFORMED. Listening to the tune is like browsing through a used record shop. thanks for the DL kids.
