31 December :: Band update
Sculpted Static is back in the studio to record some new songs. Mark's been coming up with some great melodies. Hopefully we will release a new song or two on the Internet soon.

Meanwhile, you can also look forward to some music videos from the Sunny Ash album. We just finished shooting a video for "Distance" - and if Alan can pull it off, it'll be really bizarre with bobbleheads and hula dancers coming to life. Alan is also planning to make videos for "Neanderthal" (with claymation versions of our distant cousins!) and "Haste" (some retro/sci-fi thing). As you may know, this up-and-coming filmmaker produced an excellent video for "Apart" (this video can be found on the Sunny Ash CD) and we are grateful for his efforts and continuing support of our music.

You can still order Sunny Ash by e-mailing us. It's $7, but you can preview some of the tracks on our mp3 downloads page at our Soundclick page. (Note: as of 2013, it is now available on our Bandcamp page) The Sunny Ash CD also features the "Apart" music video on QuickTime and AVI formats.

6 June :: Take Out
This is our "can't-wait-for-Mark-and-Ian" track, featuring only Andy and Steven playing over a drum machine. Hey, it's lo-fi indie rock. "Take Out" is not really a completely new song, anyway. It is an improvement of "Sticks And Stones," both musically and lyrically, and now it sounds even more like The Strokes. Sorry for the lack of our traditional Roger quote - he hasn't heard it yet.

Telegraph Avenue, 14. Nice Dream, 15. Norwegian Wood, 16. Seeing Other People, 17. Curb Crawling, 18. Let It Be, 19. Sean's jam, 20. Twist And Shout.

Roger played the remix of "Telegraph Avenue" on WQHS. Thank you, Roger! Now we can claim that Sculpted Static has been played on radio stations from coast-to-coast. Yes!

6 February :: Not Enough
Regarding our latest song, Roger from WQHS (University of Pennsylvania) said, "Hmmm... it's a faster, punkier song... it courses with garage rock rhythmic intensity."
