Periphery guitarist Misha Mansoor has shared a finalized version of “Far Too High” from his Bulb project. That track is from Bulb’s new album “Moderately Fast, Adequately Furious,” which will be released on July 16. Mansoor commented:
“Hey everyone, this is the last track we are putting out before the album comes out next Friday! Some of you may recognize this collaboration with my brother Axel Mansoor from my Youtube channel. This final and official version is available to stream everywhere! Despite the changes being relatively small, I’m quite happy with and proud of this version, and I do hope you enjoy it too. Do you guys think my brother and I should collaborate more? If so what style should it be?”
Periphery guitarist Misha Mansoor has shared a new song, titled “Upload Apathy,” from his Bulb project. That track is from Bulb’s new album “Moderately Fast, Adequately Furious,” which will be released on July 16.
“The first of two electronic songs that bring in the last section of the album. I have been playing around more and more with electronic stuff. I have always loved it and have been fascinated by it. But as evidenced by the Electronic Bulb Archive, I really didn’t have much skill, especially when it came to mixing or sound design.
The Four Seconds Ago album that I did with Jake, aside from being a ton of fun to work on, was also a learning experience and a concerted effort to try to work on those aspects. This song was actually written after Download Happiness, which is the track that follows, but I enjoyed exploring a similar vibe to that song with a twist.
If Download Happiness is more straightforward, this is a bit more about experimenting with odd rhythms and syncopation in a similar context. Of course these two songs share some themes, most notably the top line that appears in both. Fun Fact: This song features a good mixture of analog synths and digital synths in the box.
The analog synths were captured as they were recorded. So if I wanted something to be slightly tweaked, I’d have to do another pass, meaning you really commit to what you put down. I kinda like that.”

“I can’t tell you guys how excited I am and how cathartic it feels to finally be able to put out my first solo album. ‘Moderately Fast, Adequately Furious’ has technically been about 15 years in the making, so your patience has been appreciated. It was important that I felt genuinely happy with this Bulb debut, but I can say that I finally put together something that I am proud of. This album represents something important to me, and that was both the impetus and the goal in its creation and completion. With that said, I do hope that you enjoy it too!”
Periphery guitarist Misha Mansoor has announced that he will be releasing 10 albums worth of material from his early project Bulb. The records will be released on a bi-weekly basis via 3DOT Recordings.
“Diving back into the Bulb archives is something that I’ve wanted to do for years. As I began working on what will be a new Bulb album I was reminded of this vast library of unreleased music, music that has only been previously available by seeking out bits and pieces on various forums and media channels.
Presenting it in a context that both echoes my original intent with the songs grouped from the time period they were recorded in as well as making it easier for fans to find and enjoy was the driving motivation behind completing this massive undertaking.”
