Artist commentary:

Andrew Hussie: (MSPA news post, excerpt)


Hey guys, guess what the next album is all about! No, your guess is wrong. It is a Squiddles album. Surprise!

Here is an important thing to note before all else. This album comes with a full-length animation! That is a link to the trailer. The full version comes with the download.

A lot of the same people who have contributed to MSPA animations lately worked on that animation. In fact, they did 100% of it! Conceptualized it and storyboarded it and drew all the assets, all under the supervision of a very skilled Flash animator named Paige Turner.

This album began percolating many months ago, and as with much of what this music fellowship works on, it snowballed in quantity and silliness and awesomeness over an extended period of time. It began with Alex Rosetti's great single track (1st in playlist), a snippet of which found its way into the big [S] Descend mashup.

The idea we formed around that song was to make an album that would serve as the soundtrack for a fictional cartoon show for kids, full of ridiculous happy tunes with strong themes of friendship and chock full of squeaky noises and aquatic gurglings. Seems to me like they pulled it off. It's very easy to picture this as a real show now!

Most of what you hear and see is musician/artist-conceptualized. I didn't have much of a hand in it other than the original idea. The guiding principle for working on Squiddles stuff is, any idea someone has for it automatically becomes Squiddles canon. So really anything going on here, candy corn shrimp, skipper Plumbthroat's connivings, underwater unicorns, all that came together through the collaboration of these artists while I sat quietly and boggled vacantly at their shenanigans. These guys are a bunch of nuts. But they are your nuts, and now their work is yours as well.

Go buy this (cheap!) album and have yourself a friendship aneurysm.

Cindy Dominguez: ( news post)

Alright, so we did it. We decided to make a soundtrack dedicated solely to a nonexistant cartoon show about little cutesy-pie squid-things. So we told the musicians, "make this thing." Not only did they make it, they made it with 22 songs (and a short bonus track). Most of the song titles have the word "Squiddle" in them, and I'm pretty sure about 70% of the lyrics are also comprised of the word as well. It was just about the silliest project idea you could think of, but here's the thing: the musicians did a fan-squiddlin'-tastic job on this music. These are some very genuinely great songs, with the added bonus that they might also make you laugh. Win-win, right? So go give it a listen.

Now I'm going to say a name, and I would like you to join me in giving some major props to this person for going the extra mile (beyond just making some fabulous songs) in getting this album collected, organized, prepped and mixed, as well as keeping the project on track for months (yes, this thing was a long time in the making!). Okay get ready for it here is the name: ALEXANDER ROSETTI. Remember that name, and give him the biggest props you can muster for being an awesome contributor and outstanding fellow.

Make sure you save a few props though, because I am going to be sharing another name with you in a moment.

Let me tell you about an EXTRA SPECIAL THING. This album is not just about music. Nope, we got a bunch of spectacular artists in on the act as well, and thanks to their efforts we're including with the album an animation set to a track called (this may surprise you) "Squiddles!". It is adorable and hilarious and you can watch a short preview of it here. The complete animation is included with the purchase of the album as an .SWF file. It was a big collaborative effort, and I'm about to mention that name I warned you about earlier: PAIGE TURNER. All the artists contributed art of course, but this is the guy who directed and corralled everybody's efforts, did a bunch of awesome art herself (plus a puppet show!!), and put the whole animation together. Fabulous job!

There were so many people involved in this that I went ahead and made a separate credits page just for this album. Take a look and tell all these people what a great job they did by buying this ridicudorable album.

Homestuck: ( side blurb)

The soundtrack for a cartoon show about tiny adorable fictional cephalopods. You've been waiting your entire life for this and it's finally here.

Homestuck: ( "about the albums" blurb)

Fake band? No, more like a real soundtrack to a fake children's cartoon show about tiny squid-like sea creatures. Fake show, that is, not fake children. Actually the children are fake too. It's a fake show for fake kids, but the music is real and very good. Get it? Then get it! The album, I mean. Get the album.

It includes a full-length animation set to the album's title track, which you can preview right here!
