About

I categorize my tunes as "psychedelic folk-rock avant-garde electronic ambient". I compose rock songs, artsy electronic songs, folk songs, trippy psychedelic songs, instrumentals of just piano or guitar and various combinations of all these sonic forms. These tracks of mine appear to be a cross between the styles of Brian Eno, Pink Floyd, Talking Heads, Beck, The The, late 1960s psychedelic rock/folk, non-cheesy/non-sentimental new age, industrial, 1980s British alternative rock, 1990s U2, Kraftwerk, a hopeful anti-bleak version of Radiohead, contemporary electronica, late 1970s David Bowie, post-punk, John Fahey, 1980s New Wave pop, noise rock and a positive incarnation of Depeche Mode.

What does my music sound like to you?

I continue to write new material and edit old material. I love feedback, so feel free to comment on this Sound Cloud site or by emailng me at rhodesianpoet@mindspring.com.

I am seeking a record label to sign with, so if you have any suggestions or connections that might help me achieve this, please let me know. I don't perform live or tour, so my marketing strategy is focused on direct networking and word-of-mouth.

On the music recordings, I play guitar, piano, drums, harmonica, keyboard, sing, mix/edit the tracks and write the lyrics. All of the song images (except for the album covers) were designed by me. I also have art online that I have created. All images are on sale as greeting cards and postcards through the Red Bubble site, and by mail directly from me as 8 1/2" x 11" photo prints for $15 plus shipping (larger sizes are available too). Let me know if you'd like me to ship a picture to you.

I've written a few paragraphs at the bottom of a different SoundCloud web page explaining how, in my mid-twenties, I began making these tunes after abandoning all former childhood creative activities in my teenage and young adult years. I'm grateful that I persevered during the past eleven years or so, during which I committed myself to learn or relearn how to play instruments, compose songs, sing, craft poetry/lyrics and record at home. My level of respect for professional musicians and artists grew exponentially as I realized just how hard this work can be. Along the path of this personal musical evolution, I experienced a lot of encouragement and inspiration from countless friends, family, favorite musicians/artists, books, concerts and documentaries.

I also express my spiritual, intellectual and emotional journey with life through a blog regarding the positive and negative aspects to the relationship between religion and culture called "Disagreements I Have With Christianity". I'd love to hear your thoughts on it. I plan to turn this blog into a book in the future.

Thank you for visiting this site!!! Enjoy the music!!!

;-)

Sincerely,

Andy Rhodes (Rhodesian Poet)

    It's great to find someone else who enjoys instrumental psychedelic music. Ever heard of the British group, "The Amorphous Androgynous" (AKA "Future Sound Of London"?

    I like the harmony guitar picking a lot. Really cool. "Can you help me baby? Can you help me dear?" Nice lyrical choice, instead of the typical "baby" line by itself. The "dear" adds some wit and personality.
