Kraken Not Stirred is a musical act which spans various genres,

NEW ALBUM!!!

Except it's old.

"Most Moistest Hits 2017" is now available at Bandcamp!

It features all of the songs I released in 2017, plus three stragglers from 2016 that came out after Mixtape.

It features this new and improved version of "Don't Blink, Don't Panic, Don't Feed Them After Midnight" with newly-recorded vocals...



And it looks... LIKE THIS!

NEW SONG!

"Comic Sans Is Always A Good Choice For Your Professional Graphic Design Project"

Graphic Design nerds, this one is for you! It's an absolutely epic song about font choice. This one is a doozy, so book the day off, strap yourself in, and get ready for a ride.

Subaquatic Isolation Transmission #1

Listen here, human filth.
There's a virus out there and it's gotten out of hand. As much as I appreciate its gumption, if it takes you all out before I get a chance to, I'm going to be very cross. So in order to help give you more reason to stay indoors, I'm creating a bunch of overly long, hopefully relaxing drones for you to chill to. So do that.

Here is the first one...





March 25th, 2020

Hey, look! An instrumental!

If you've ever said, "Yeah, the music's OK but I hate that guy's voice,"
then this is the song for you!

"SONGS FROM A PALE BLUE DOT" Song 6: The Loneliest Astronaut

Continuing with songs from my concept album about space exploration, Songs From A Pale Blue Dot, we have a song inspired by Michael Collins; the third member of the Apollo 11 crew.

Collins stayed behind in the lunar orbiter while Armstrong and Aldrin walked on the moon. He was out of contact for about 45 minutes each orbit, completely cut off from the rest of humanity, while on the far side of the moon.

YEAR IN REVIEW

Hello, Human filth! Another one of your years has passed and I have accomplished GREATNESS! (As usual.)

This year, I released 9 original songs.

After the massive commercial success that was Most Moistest Hits 2018, I have decided to allow you to purchase all of this year's songs in one convenient package titled, shockingly, MOST MOISTESTS HITS 2019! All profits go to ME! THE MIGHTY KRAKEN! Thank you in advance for helping to fund my plans of World Domination!

Three of those songs are accompanied by extremely amazing and high budget music videos!
They are..
