MP3 Goodbyewave - Interiors
If the Beatles were from the midwest, and had collaborated with Wilco, Spoon, and Radiohead, this would be their ''Dark Side Of The Moon''. Organ-like guitars, reverbed piano, dusty harmonies, angular riffs, and Keith Moon drum strutting.

Goodbyewave is the brainchild of J. Hubner. J. Hubner has been writing and recording for close to 15 years. A multi-instrumentalist, like some of his musical heroes such as Adrian Belew, Paul McCartney, and Jon Brion, just to name a few, J.H. recorded basement albums for years before playing a couple of gigs with the short-lived band Houdini Trio. Then in early 1998 he formed the band YellowMatterCustard with Josh Gaut, Tom Rinkenberg, and Adam Guy. Sharing guitar/bass/backing vocals, plus songwriting responsibilities with https://www.tradebit.comt, J.H. and the band played for the better part of 1998 in the Warsaw/Elkhart/Ft. Wayne, IN areas. Mixing modern rock infused originals with 60’s psychedelic covers, such as Cream and the Doors, the band was relatively successful in the region. They were featured on Ft. Wayne radio station Extreme 96.3’s morning show and played two acoustic numbers, as well as appearing on the station’s Sunday night local artists program. But in the spring of ’99, the band broke up and J.H. and Josh Gaut formed the duo Squarewave. For the better part of a year the two wrote and recorded in their basement studios, handling all of the engineering duties. In the summer of 2002, Squarewave received a more than favorable review from Ft. Wayne’s own Whatzup magazine. Citing only some engineering issues, the songwriters were hailed as true songwriters and musicians. Besides the accolades from the Whatzup review, the duo was also featured on Elkhart station 97.7’s local radio show. Interviewed by host the Night Raider, the two were able to talk about what influenced their songwriting, as well as introduce two of their compositions. But as all good things do, this partnership came to an end. So in 2003, J. Hubner started his own project, goodbyewave. For the better part of 2004 and 2005 J.H. wrote and recorded what would become 2006’s “Goodbye, So Long, Farewell, Goodnight”. Once recording was done J.H. started a Purevolume page and showcased the better part of goodbyewave’s first long play. The site proved most fruitful as fans from across the U.S and beyond played and downloaded songs, as well as fellow bands citing their interest in the music of goodbyewave. J.H. even became friends with Milwaukee band Slo Fi, recording 3 part harmonies for the bands song “Tried and True”. As well as the purevolume site, “Goodbye, So Long, Farewell, Goodnight” was also reviewed by Whatzup, and was hailed a great album and should be listened to.
J.H. began playing with drummer/percussionist Jack Long. Jack has been playing drums since the age of 8, taking professional lessons from a Professor of Music at Grace College in Winona Lake, In. For 10 years he studied percussion, and wanting to emulate percussion heroes such as Buddy Rich, Keith Moon, and Bill Ward, Jack became a very sought after drummer in the Warsaw area. Playing the local Warsaw music scene for years, he decided he had had enough of the bar scene and continued his own percussion study and continued to play on a daily basis in his own practice space. Then in the summer of 2006 he approached J. Hubner about getting together to just “jam”. These jam sessions turned into "Bright Lights, Strange Nights, taken from several sessions over the course of a year. Between October of 2006 through August of 2007, the songs were created organically. J.H bringing riffs and melody, while Jack giving the song a backbone and legs to stand on. At times some of the most intriguing songs, such as “Her Name Is Love” and “Bruise” were born simply from jamming off of a guitar riff. Others, such as the Jeff Beck inspired “The Difference” or the introspective Elvis Costello inflected “Wake Me When It’s Over” were songs once the pick hit string. Styles range from heavy guitar/bass/drum madness to three part harmonies and string sections. J. Hubner takes inspirations from the “classics”, as well as current artists. The Beatles are a big influence, as well as the Kinks, Elvis Costello, XTC, Talking Heads, Adrian Belew, David Bowie, Jeff Beck,
Stevie Wonder, Black Sabbath, and Led Zeppelin. Newer artists making an impact on the overall goodbyewave sound include Wilco, Spoon, Jason Falkner, Midlake, Loose
Fur, Wolfmother, Deftones, Sigur Ros, Andrew Bird, Sonic Youth, Of Montreal, and
so on and so forth.
The compositions on this long play are the most personal either musician has ever created or worked on. Songs about life, death, love, loss, sadness, faith and the loss of faith are here. Each song is like a different chapter in a novel, conveying the human condition. The album was recorded entirely in Basement Sound Studios in Warsaw, and engineered by J. Hubner. The album was produced by both J.H. and Jack Long. Everything heard on the album was created with guitar, bass, keys, drums, and voice, with the help of an occasional sample(only track 9). The songs were performed by J. Hubner and Jack Long. Mixed by J. Hubner and mastered by J. Hubner using CD Architect. Additional mastering was done at T. Bush Record Plant by Tim Bushong, whom J. Hubner took guitar lessons from for many years, and has maintained a great friendship with to this day. Goodbyewave is no longer a solo project. It is two true musicians coming together to serve the song, so that the song can serve the listener.
And now we are here, in 2008. The changing winds have brought a new album, a new mind set. ''Interiors'' is goodbyewave''s opus. 15 songs, over one hour of pure songcraft. From supersonic angular riffage of the opening instrumental "New Rebel(Old Cause)", to the McCartney-esque storytelling beauty of "Memorial Day ''78", this album spans genres and years to tell the stories of the broken-hearted, the lost, and the dreamers. Enjoy!!
