On Side Projects

Hey there.
It's 12:35 am MST, and I'm wide awake listening to Adam Young's old side projects on YouTube.
It's been rumored he's had 20something musical projects in total, here's a few if you need to catch up:

  • Port Blue
  • Sky Sailing
  • Windsor Airlift*
  • Swimming With Dolpins*
  • Insect Airport
  • Seagull Orchestra
  • The Grizzly
  • Aquarium
  • Keehar
*These projects have been carried on by other people and continued/still continue to make music.

If you haven't listened to any of these, you need to. I personally think it's really cool to see/hear where he's been before he was famous. So many of them are so amazing; they don'y deserve to be forgotten about.
Sky Sailing and Port Blue are still commonly listened to, but many have been abandoned and left for dead in the archives of YouTube, waiting to be dug up by some stoic hootowls and resurrected. Who knows, maybe they'll make a comeback someday.
And one in particular may catch you off guard...
Let's just say the Aquarium gets a little strange after closing time...
-Aidan, with love
