album is often inaccurately equated to being
musically progressive in nature. But in reality, no
progressive tropes, modal soloing, nor even the
signature theatrical expressiveness of many
progressive rock artists is needed to achieve a
solid work of concept.Read
About the Artist
below is an idiot who, until recently, made
Bollinger, the independent recording artist known as
Latent, and gatekeeper of a surname that should
only be approached from the front end
monosyllabic-ally, has been crafting hideous music in
an embarrassing attempt to give meaning to his life
since 2004. In 2007, he decided he was done making
awful music and began a career in making mediocre
music, which resulted in a personal record setting five
CDs sold. Finally, in 2011, Nicolas set out to make a
concept album. It was possibly the worst idea he ever
had, and it took him three years to write, record, and
produce it. To the flabbergasted surprise of the seven
people who heard it, the album was of pristine quality.
As Nicolas exclaimed one fine afternoon just moments
after getting out of bed, the music is "delicious
flavor for the ears", and most people who listen to
more than ten seconds of one of these Latent songs tend
to agree. After a problematic response to his
above-documented statement, Nicolas later recanted the
statement, saying "I never intended to imply
that ears are for consumption, or that sprinkling
the ashes of my liner notes on them, somehow makes them
more edible. That person has serious problems, and I'm
sorry about that incident."
Nicolas resides in a basement he does not own with his
partner,Sarah. She is the primary writer of not yet
released "The Vines of Eden" book series, from which
"The Earth of Eden" album draws its conceptual
elements. He also has a cat, Tiger, who is the best of
the best. The ruggedly handsome bastard is aptly named
considering his coat is very tiger-like. By aptly, I
mean stupidly. It's like naming a skiff "Tug Boat" or a
hollow-body guitar "Lucille". Personally, I prefer the
name "Marmalade King".
Despite a few logical inaccuracies, I felt this quote
would help you understand him better:
"All I want is for people to hear the music and relate
to it in some way. I want them to feel the story, the
nebulously-presented story without much context, and
fall in love with characters whose names they don't
even know yet. I want that. But most of all I want to
own a f***ing Ferrari. Tell your friends, your family,
whomever, tell them Nick needs a $600,000 European
sports car. That's only like 100,000 albums. I've
already sold one, so I'm almost halfway there.
Supporting independent music is supporting capitalism.
Making us rich will only help the economy. That's why
I'm buying the car. To help my
If he gets a Ferrari, I get a condo in the Alps. That
was the deal. That's why I'm not saying a word. Never
ending self feeder, baby.
