My name is Andrew Figueroa and I go by the name of AcidLord Locust when referring to my music. Im from Miami and I would say that the latin style has influenced me though I definitely dont try to embrace it as much as others would, instead I try to design my own landscapes by clashing genres and styles that some would say ought no cross paths. If you wanna know about me just ask, its the easiest way.
Guitar was my first instrument, and the synth I've been steadily experimenting with.
Audacity, Propellerhead Reason, Ableton Live 6.0, and Project 5
M-Audio Oxygen 8 v3, my keyboard and mouse
Scissors for Lefty, Dr. Dog, plenty others but those two are atm
In the Aeroplane Over the Sea by Neutral Milk Hotel, Magical Mystery Tour by the Beatles, Nevermind by Nirvana, Enter the Wutang by the Wu-Tang Clan, Slanted & Enchanted by Pavement, Daydream Nation by Sonic Youth and theres more but its late and I cant think
The Fall, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sonic Youth, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Spencer Krug of Sunset Rubdown and Wolf Parade fame, Electrelane, my girlfriend and family + friends
God I would hate to encapsulate myself into a few words, so I think I'll skip this one. All I know is most of my ideas have been coming from dreams, so I would say that my latest songs sound like the soundtrack to the mind's last throes against facing the realities of everyday life.
Retail, its not much but it's a living. And of course studying at Miami Dade. But music is my life so this question is highly irrelevant.
