After Social Distancing, we found Hope. Now, prepare for denouement.

X-Ray man documented this historical time in the lives of our generation with Social Distancing. This collection focused on the onset of the crisis, confusions, and fears of the masses. Questions of whether or not the American people were being told everything about what was going on began to surface on social media and through distanced interactions amongst friends and families. 

Then, we found Hope. A four-track EP bringing us the second movement in this opus. Songs of questions turning to relief, and brightening the outlook for the future. 

In just about a week, you will receive "denouement." An LP that compiles the first two movements and adds the final piece of this story... the Rainbow Song. X-Ray Man's "Rainbow Song" is an atmospheric piece, not unlike therapeutic sleep recordings. It blends mellow sounds of trickling rain with drones and soft beats that last for nearly 16 minutes. A perfect way to ease your mind and lull you to sleep after listening to the audial operatic.

Social Distancing EP drops April 12th from Dozing Lady Records!

What can be said that has not already been said? The world is in a sad state of uproar right now, and people are having to re-learn how to live. Emotions are running wild as people from all walks of life are reacting to the current viral scare in a variety of different manners - from complete fear and isolated terror to not altering their life at all, throwing caution to the wind and continuing on as if nothing has happened. Mixed emotions and theories about this virus are flowing like new blood through the collective veins of the human race and we are forced to ride a roller coaster of response.

 

X-Ray Man's newest installment, (social distancing), chronicles the current situation from rise to uncertainty - peaking apex at the fear and anger we all feel towards political figures and how we are at the mercy of those higher-ups running our nations.

 

On April 12th, X-Ray Man will release a companion piece of sorts for last year's Geometric Pedestrians. GP commented on a self-isolation and zombification by technological distractions, whereas SD touches on the after-effects of this new and upsettingly UNWILLING NECESSITY of impersonal push away from human interaction. Check out the player to the side to hear a special preview of this new chapter of X-Ray Man music!

Geometric Pedestrians EP drops July 4th from Dozing Lady Records!

It has been two years since Vintage Frisson played out the story of the futuristic speakeasy with its gangsters and flappers meeting the peace-loving aliens in a roaring 20s meets the X-Files scenario. On July 4, 2019, X-Ray Man will release its most vocalized collection to-date. Geometric Pedestrians is a "sad but true" look at what could be considered a breakdown of society as technology continues to turn civilization into screen-zombies. This EP touches on the after-effects of this impersonal push away from human interaction, including questions of fidelity and the loss of common sense and spiritual morals altogether. Check out the player to the side to hear a special preview of this highly anticipated new volume of X-Ray Man digital intelligence!

Thus it begins (again)

Many years have past since Steven was active with X-Ray Man. This was an experimental project he indulged in during his time at Western Kentucky University. He found much inspiration in his studies between 2007 and 2011, but after graduation it became difficult to find time for music. After relocating his family to Arizona in the summer of 2016, and acquiring new production equipment, Steven has been inspired once again to create more X-Ray Man music. Nearing completion is the eponymous 5-song collection entitled, X-Ray Man.

 

In addition to this new record, Steven is preparing to release the entire X-Ray Man catalog digitally, worldwide, for consumption by the new year. Please stay tuned for more exciting activity from X-Ray Man in the coming months, and if you use Facebook, please join the official group: X-Ray Man (and the fans thereof.)

X-Ray Man

Since 1996, Steven Baker has been working with a rock project called the Dementia Cookie Box. Around 1999, this project took an "electronic slide," but has now returned to rest comfortably in it's rock roots.

 

X-Ray Man is an effort for Steven to continue experiementing with the electronic music in a seperate entity from the DCB. 

 

X-Ray Man tells stories using instrumental compositions, much like the classical music of early days.
