New Ontario Emperor album "Drains to Ocean" now available on Bandcamp

Ontario Emperor's latest synthetica release is self-described as greatest electronic album ever

Empoprises announces that musical artist Ontario Emperor has released a new 12-song album entitled "Drains to Ocean." This newest instrumental collection is available electronically on the "ontarioemperor" page at Bandcamp (

This is Ontario Emperor's fourth Bandcamp release. Ontario Emperor's music was originally released on in 1999 and 2000. After ceased operations, Ontario Emperor released a free track on GeoCities. After GeoCities ceased operations, Ontario Emperor released a free collection of songs on After ceased hosting music files, it was on to Bandcamp. As of June 2017, Ontario Emperor has not yet succeeded in closing Bandcamp down.

The marketing flack who is pretending to speak for Ontario Emperor put some new words in his mouth for this release. "Yes, I am self-proclaiming this to be the greatest electronic album ever," stated Ontario. "And in all honesty, the songs are more developed than the ones on my previous releases. Each of the twelve songs evokes a particular mood, although I will leave it to the listener to determine what these moods may be."

Empoprises' John E. Bredehoft also had some words put into his mouth. "Our experience with Bandcamp has been very fruitful," Bredehoft supposedly said. "We look forward to expanding our relationship with Bandcamp in the future."

The twelve songs can be previewed on Bandcamp. Purchase of the album, or of selected individual songs, allows unlimited streaming as well as download of the song files.

Other Ontario Emperor releases on Bandcamp include the six-song "Relusion," the ten-song "Salad," and the song "Bare Plate," all available at Empoprises also manages the musical career of Wasp the Houseboy, whose individual songs can be found at

My God is Color Blind...and has apparently visited Alexandria, Indiana

Years ago, I wrote about the rarity of my love for Eddie Murphy's song "My God is Color Blind."

In a world of billions of people, I was able to find a few (via YouTube comments) who shared my admiration for the song.

Via blog comments, I've found another one:

I was on the radio the other day & Eddie Murphy's singing career came up. Party all the Time was of course the first song mentioned. But it reminded of my youth back in the mid 80's and that I had this album (I may have had it on cassette, not real clear on that). Anyway, like you, I started thinking about that one song I REALLY liked on the album but drew a blank. I looked up the album on iTunes & BAM - there it was - My God is Color Blind! I immediately downloaded it & have been listening to it in the car over and over on the way to work! I then started thinking I was probably the only other person in the world who liked this song so I googled it & found this blog. I don't know you - I've never heard of your blog - but we shall forever be link together by the ballad of Eddie Murphy! Blue, black or white, you can be a friend of mine!

Note that Steve didn't say anything about the second side of "Total Devo," however. As I said in 2009, "So I can't win them all."

#emukamperz Introduction

Ever since I first became involved with Bandcamp, I've really like their embeddable music players - especially how they embed into blog posts (although the display of Bandcamp links in Twitter and Facebook isn't shabby either).

So, I thought to myself, why not just embed a bunch of stuff?

As the meme says, brace yourselves - embedded Bandcamp songs are coming.

And while I obviously won't be shy about sharing Ontario Emperor and Wasp the Houseboy songs, other Bandcampers are coming also.
