On November 6th, 2012, Bartin Memberg released "Ready For The Good Things," a compilation of his best work from 2011 and 2012. The album can be streamed and downloaded on his Bandcamp page:
Composer and lead singer for now dormant progressive pop band Memphis Pencils, Martin Bemberg began composing and recording solo material in January, 2011. In the years since, Baritn Memberg has released six recordings spanning a multitude of genres.
Bartin Memberg (b. Thomas Martin Bemberg Jr.) was born and raised in Fayetteville, AR where he played with acclaimed progressive pop band Memphis Pencils. He released his first solo record, "Sills" in February of 2011 while still recording the Pencils' full length, "Shhh, I'm Rustic." The solo EP is a synthesis of R&B grooves, ethereal piano, and hymn-like vocal layers.
After moving to Austin, Texas in 2011's hottest August on record, Memberg recorded his second solo record, "Elsewise and Cetera," his first dabbling in rock n roll. After meeting his wife Kristin in Austin, eloping, and moving back to his hometown of Fayetteville, Bartin began composing the tunes that would end up on "Talkin' About The Man," his third album, the majority of which is dedicated to his wife Kristin.
Autumn 2012 saw a true departure from his previous work as he began work on his fourth record, "Just Some White Kids Havin' A Party," a whimsical take on Hip-Hop and open admission of Memberg's extreme whiteness. Soon after, "Beats" followed suit, a full length album comprised of instrumental Hip-Hop ranging from tribal grooves, swag-laden club bangers, dirty south crunk, and ambient trip-hop to boot.
