Get Your Shit Together!
Get Your Shit Together! | Press Page – Welcome! This is the first official full-length release to be set forth by the N.Y. based, solo musician, Chuck W. Synth-based and instrumental, the album is a quirky, plunky, lo-fi drift into a soundscape defined only as ‘weird.’
The Concept Of ‘The Weird’
Never timid or shy about straying into ‘the weird’, Chuck W. encapsulates years of work in a brief ten tracks and approximately 21 minutes in length. Only you can determine if it’s your kind of weird, though. Please feel free to give a listen at your convenience (It’s not going anywhere) and provide some feedback on social media. Understanding what interests his audience and striving to achieve that all the time is what drives this artist. He wants to please – sonically, visually, spiritually, and so on – There’s nothing which aids this effort better than to hear as many folks’ personal takes on it as possible. So let’s get some commentary going on people!

Press Release For Get Your Shit Together!
Chuck W.’s Debut Album, ‘Get Your Shit Together!’, is Ready to Get Weird.
“Very well done album, Man – Flows great, sounds great – I love the vibe and avant-garde feel.” – Shelf Black, Independent Electronic Musician
Amityville, NY, 6/28/2019 – Chuck W. is a lifelong musician who went the solo route some time ago. Primarily a Drummer, Chuck faced some physical strife, which forced him away from the kit. Not one to simply stop, Chuck gained a nearly unhealthy infatuation with Synthesizers. This album is the culmination of years worth of material, spanning Chuck’s learning process.
Heavily influenced by LCD SoundSystem and the Velvet Underground, it’s almost humorous how strikingly ‘New York’ the album is based on Chuck’s own locale. It’s gritty, sometimes dirty and a hell of a ride. As referenced in the liner notes, James Murphy of LCD SoundSystem fame, was a key source of inspiration due to every Musician’s greatest fear; Aging. Having not dropped the first LCD SoundSystem album until the age of 32, time was quickly catching up with Chuck. At the ripe age of 31 ½, Get Your Shit Together!, just squeaks this album through the door in time to beat Murphy’s significant benchmark.
With not only a hard deadline to drive him, life stepped in to provide an additional kick in the ass. As he was halfway through mixing the album Chuck was struck in a motor vehicle accident, shattering his right forearm. After being released from the hospital, all that mattered was completing this album.
In Only A Few Days
Chuck mixed the remaining 5 tracks, one-handed, completed all the album artwork himself and obtained enough random merchandise to muster up a release. Having dropped the album on a random Tuesday whilst bored one morning, Chuck had realized one of his life’s major goal’s with Get Your Shit Together![‘s] release.
A little bit weird, a fair amount catchy and a lot of bit Electronic, Get Your Shit Together!, is some of the most honest and down to earth material you’ll hear in 2019.
