How do you sell an album to an entire town? It's not like a monorail.

ichormusic20 karma

😂 in my hometown, not to my hometown

skatastic5714 karma

Is there a chance the track could bend?

Not on your life, my Hindu friend…

WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?!

WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?!

WHAT IS THIS

ichormusic1 karma

I'm so confused.

ebdawson19652 karma

They're references to a song from the Simpsons. A charlatan sells the town on a monorail, and it's a parody of the musical "The Music Man."

ichormusic2 karma

I need to step up my pop culture game. You guys just crushed it.

ebdawson19652 karma

No problem, listened to some of your album, good job. I don't know you, but I'm happy for you.

ichormusic2 karma

❤️❤️❤️ I love kind people. Thank you 🙏🏻

otaku4922 karma

Hi! How did you promote it to reach #4?

ichormusic31 karma

Hey! 👋🏼

Believe it or not, I just made a couple posts about on social media and it sort of snowballed. It was a pretty big hit around here when I first made it, and I think people had a lot of nostalgia tied to it with high school and college memories.

I think it really got its legs from those people being so excited about it and making posts and sharing it!

tadrith2 karma

It's close to R. Sheridan, whose fucking amazing, so there's that.

ichormusic1 karma

Go on...

tadrith2 karma

Rob Sheridan, Nine Inch Nails... that's some lofty company!

ichormusic1 karma

Ah, yes. My father.

NuggetHuman4 karma

Do you remember how long it took you to make the album?

ichormusic6 karma

Years lol. I had no intention of making an album, originally. I just made songs for fun, and then one day I decided to throw them all together into an album.

I’d say probably three years worth of creating.

TrueFigure13 karma

Am I on the album?

ichormusic5 karma

Potentially. There were a ton of people on it. What’s your middle name?

TrueFigure18 karma

Gary Oldman

ichormusic14 karma

You are not.

Pseudophryne2 karma

So you haven't done anything new in 13 years?

ichormusic3 karma

I put out another album in 2013 called Heartbeats. A bit different style than my first project.

I’ve taken a few years away from music (life gets in the way) but gotten back into it these last few months. I’m actually getting ready to release some more stuff soon, and the re-release of The Feelgood Movement was a bit of a play to drum up interest in the new stuff.

ManGo_50Y2 karma

Were you going for a feeling similar to The Slim Shady LP and The Marshall Mathers LP when you made the album?

A better question: were you inspired by Eminem or Weird Al Yankovic when making your album? The song “Intro 2” reminds me of the opening of “The Real Slim Shady” from TMMLP1 and “Intro” reminds me of the “Curtains Up” skit from The Eminem Show. When I say Weird Al, I recognised a writing style similar in the goofy beat in the background in one of the songs. Also “The Feelgood Movement” sounds like something that he would name an album.

ichormusic1 karma

Thanks for listening to it!

I may have been going for a bit of an Eminem vibe. I was a hugeeeee Kanye fan at the time, too. To be honest, I respect what he’s done, and think he’s insanely creative, but I’ve never been a huge fan of Weird Al’s music. It’s just a little too over the top for my taste.

It’s funny, a lot of the humor on The Feelgood Movement is sexual in nature, but at that point in my life I don’t think I had done anything other than kiss a (one) girl 😂

ManGo_50Y3 karma

Well, you certainly nailed the Slim Shady vibe! Excellent work!

ichormusic2 karma

Thanks so much! That means a lot!!

TheMysticFez2 karma

Do you like The Beatles?

ichormusic3 karma

Of course. Do you like Tom Petty?

TheMysticFez2 karma

Of course. Do you like trains?

ichormusic3 karma

Only cabooses. You?

BYU-Graduate2 karma

Okayy... was the melody from “dancin in the rain” original and were you the first to use/make it? Because I noticed it released before Down With Webster’s hit “Your Man”, which is obviously very similar to this beat/melody. Edit: spelling

ichormusic6 karma

Good ear! I wish I could say they sampled my track. I actually had a bunch of people send me links to that song when it came out, with people thinking they copied Dancin’ in the Rain.

We actually both just happened to sample the same song: Honey Cone - Girls It Ain’t Easy

BYU-Graduate3 karma

Ohh okay, thank you! Was curious of this. Congrats on the #4!

ichormusic3 karma

I appreciate it! Congrats on graduating from BYU 🥳

FergiePoots1 karma

Who are you????

ichormusic1 karma

Alex Sheridan. Who are you, FergiePoots?

dontmindmejust-dying1 karma

Was it difficult to get onto Spotify?

ichormusic3 karma

Not at all! There are services like TuneCore and Distrokid that make getting into all of those services a breeze.

Letting you in on those companies really removes a lot of the cool factor and legitimacy of having stuff on Spotify, iTunes, etc 😂

mixera41 karma

Did you make your own beats? P.S Why do you remind me of lil ugly mane

ichormusic1 karma

I do make all my own beats. Those ones were all made using Sony Acid, but I use Logic X now.

Lol, I’ll need to look ugly man up!
