2013

Josh Carples – Ghost of a Town
This is my third solo, acoustic album. Like the first two, I handled the writing, production, and recording. This one actually includes some instruments – trumpet, mainly, but one song has a small violin part – that weren’t on the previous albums.

NoiseTrade_250Josh Carples – Ghost.Ocean.Sirens
This EP, available exclusively through NoiseTrade, features one song from each of my solo albums – “Ghost of a Town,” “Ocean” and “Sirens and Street Lights,” followed by a live version of each of those songs.

Josh Carples – Gut Munchers (Original Score)
Along with acting in the film, I was asked to write some original music for the Gut Munchers score. I was also asked to write a cheesy, acoustic song for use in the film; that is the last track, titled “Zombie Gingivitis.”

Hail the Titans – fig.
We tracked drums for fig. at Adam’s house, some bass at Joe’s house (the recording engineer/mixer) and guitars, synth and violin at my house. Once mixed, it was mastered by Gregory Dunn of the band Moving Mountains and released on limited-edition ‘coke bottle green’ vinyl as a 12″ EP at 45 rpm.


2012

Josh Carples – Ocean (piano version)
This is a piano version of the song “Ocean” that originally appeared on The Final Scene. It was recorded on an old, out-of-tune piano that had seen better days. In fact, the cover photo is of the actual piano.


2011

Hail the Titans – Hymns of Mare Nostrum
The drums for Hymns of Mare Nostrum were recorded in an office building. The guitars, bass, keyboards, theremins, tambourine and other very random noises were recorded at my house. I handled some of the guitar, some keys, some tambourine and some of the random noises on the album.

Hail the Titans – Live, Tracked Demos
These demo versions to some of the songs that would later appear on Hymns of Mare Nostrum were recorded live in our practice space. The cover photo was taken by Pint Bottle Photography at a show we played at Bottletree in Birmingham, Ala. with Maserati and the Great American Breakdown.


2010

The Boss and The Rabbi – Her name was Miranda (He was suspected from the start)
This was actually the sound check prior to the live recording of Six Victims, and it serves as a prequel to the story line. This band was always an improvisational duo, so the songs are were always made up as we went.

Josh Carples – The Final Scene
This is my second solo album. I handled all aspects of the writing, production, recording and performing of this. Rather than the somewhat minimalist approach used on my first album, I decided to expand the recording a bit with more backing vocals, piano, organ and some lead guitar work.

The Boss and The Rabbi – Six Victims (The Theatre Curtain was the Color of Blood)
This album is all improvisational, live and written on the spot. As a two-piece, we switched instruments about mid-way through it, but did so without letting things go silent. I started on guitar and keyboard, switched to drums, synth and Kaossilator, then back to guitar and keys.


2009

The Boss and The Rabbi – Her Origins at Midnight
These demos were improvisational, but tracked. We recorded drums first, then added guitar on a separate track. It wasn’t pre-planned though; it was more of a “go play drums for a few minutes” followed by “let’s add some guitar now.” I played guitar on the first track and drums on the second.


2008

Josh Carples – Note from the Georgian Hotel
This was my first solo album. I went with a minimalist approach, limiting each song to six recorded tracks. The title track was inspired by a post in Found Magazine where someone had found a bottle washed up on shore with a note inside, written on a notepad that came from the Georgian Hotel. The actual note is pictured in the physical CD version of the album.


2007

Our Name in Lights

Marsellus – Our Name in Lights
This album included the band as a four-piece. I handled lead vocals and rhythm guitar. It was recorded by Andy Jackson and features pedal steel by “Spacey” Casey Prestwood, both of the band Hot Rod Circuit. (Available at most digital retailers.)


2005

2005. Marsellus. self-titled 3-song EP

Marsellus – (self-titled 3-song E.P.)
This was recorded back when the band was a three-piece (also recorded by Andy Jackson, with assistance from Kevin Palmer of Trust Company). I handled guitar and vocals on this recording.

This E.P. and Our Name in Lights are in this YouTube playlist.


2002

Five Months Late

12th Hour – Five Months Late
I wrote the lyrics and provided lead and backing vocals on this album. Live, I took care of the rhythm guitar parts. (Available at most digital retailers.)


1999

x12thhourxx12th Hourx – (self-titled E.P.)
I only did vocals and screams on the self-titled album. Yes, screams. Teenage angst. Or something. I think we wanted to be a hardcore band, a punk band and a hard rock band at the same time. Maybe. (Out of print.)
