Playing with the Looper
Sean Black, Tony Glazer, Isa Brazon, and Luke Bluske make some epic sounds with the looper pedal, a bass guitar, and a mic.


Baila Baila Music Video
Here is Isa and the band doing what they do best! Teaching kids Spanish in the coolest way filled with fun.

I directed and edited this video.


Tonight - Papafoam

Vocals - Isa & Luke & a little Rico too
Guitar - Isa
Rhythm & Bass - Luke with the help of the looper

A cover of Tonight, Tonight by Smashing Pumpkins with hip hop lyrics written by The Uriginal G, a.k.a. Upde"G", a.k.a Gary Updegraff performed by Luke. This was a Christmas present for Gary derived from his text messages to Leeann (his girlfriend)... thanks to Leeann for forwarding the texts to the Papafoam beat lab so we could take this prestige... WORLDWIDE!

Papafoam Live at The Airliner 1/24/2012
The Foam playing live for the first time with their new drummer (Eric Sarmiento) and new bassist (Yaddy Ray). The show took place at The Airliner's upstairs stage downtown LA. Awesome energy and there was at least 100 people at the bar on that particular Tuesday night! Kudos to the club promoters. Thanks to Justin Blount for shooting this vid!


Tribute - Tenacious D
1323836066tribute pic.jpgPapafoam has a new drummer and bassist now and we've decided to cover Tribute by Tenacious D. Here's a slow tempo version of the song we're using for practice.

Tranquillius - Papafoam
1316571948absrtact--100.jpgI made a new song today and I call it Tranquillius. Instrumental. I'll probably end up using it in one of my films for background music. Check it out.

Livin on a Prayer in development
Livin on a Prayer - Bon Jovi cover in development

Performed by Eric Sarmiento of Alas the Destroyer and Isa and Luke of Papafoam. We were working on this Bon Jovi cover as a last second dual band stage filler to bridge the gap between our two bands' sets. Should be a rockin good time saturday for Eric's 21st and Isa's 30th birthdays.

Eric shot this with his cel phone.

Lights Out Ritual
When Papafoam has a band prac we like to use a little ritual to get the energy just right before we play. We like to shut the florescent lights off and play with just the glowing chili peppers and china balls giving us the perfect ambience for optimal rockage.


Loose Strings - Papafoam
Josie, Papafoam West's new drummer, bangs out Loose Strings in the band's first recording together. Isa sings, Luke plays guitar, and Pornslide Nault slaps the bass in this work with lyrics written by the band's original drummer-Snydey.

Good Times!


Isabel - High on You

Isabel - High on You from Matt Bluske on Vimeo.

Acting as Isabel's music manager now, I've started booking shows for her solo act as a singer and song writer. She calls me "her muse" as 75% of the songs she writes are about us. Allthough this isn't any of my own art, i am a huge inspiration to it all. This clip is from Isa's very first show, and the song "High on You" was just written by Isabel 2 nights before the concert. You may even catch her looking down at the lyrics she had written on a note pad at her feet.


Isabel - I Wish You Knew

Isabel - I Wish You Knew from Matt Bluske on Vimeo.

Acting as Isabel's music manager now, I've started booking shows for her solo act as a singer and song writer. She calls me "her muse" as 75% of the songs she writes are about us. Allthough this isn't any of my own art, i am a huge inspiration to it all. This clip is from Isa's very first show, and the song "I Wish You Knew" was written by Isabel in Summer 2010 while Isa and I were broken up. We had just had a very tough (and apparently inspiring) talk about our differences.


Isabel - You Create My Smiles

Isabel - You Create My Smiles from Luke Bluske on Vimeo.

Acting as Isabel's music manager now, I've started booking shows for her solo act as a singer and song writer. She calls me "her muse" as 75% of the songs she writes are about us. Allthough this isn't any of my own art, i am a huge inspiration to it all. This clip is from Isa's very first show, and the song "You Create My Smiles" was written by Isabel in early 2009. Isa has always been full of love and very in touch with her emotions, she was exploding with love when she wrote this one.


Isabel - Letting Go

Isabel - Letting Go from Luke Bluske on Vimeo.

Acting as Isabel's music manager now, I've started booking shows for her solo act as a singer and song writer. She calls me "her muse" as 75% of the songs she writes are about us. Allthough this isn't any of my own art, i am a huge inspiration to it all. This clip is from Isa's very first show, and the song "Letting Go" was written by Isabel shortly after we broke up last spring. I think it's pretty apparent what it is about.


Isabel - The Only Place I Can

Allthough this isn't any of my own art, i am a huge inspiration to it all. This clip is from Isa's very first show, and the song "The Only Place I Can" was written by Isabel shortly after we broke up last spring. It is about finding me in her dreams, and not wanting to wake up so she can continue to enjoy her false reality.


Isabel - Tu Vos

Isabel - Tu Vos from Luke Bluske on Vimeo.

Acting as Isabel's music manager now, I've started booking shows for her solo act as a singer and song writer. She calls me "her muse" as 75% of the songs she writes are about us. However, this song was inspired by her Grandmother who has Alzheimer's disease. This clip is from Isa's very first show, and the song "Tu Vos" (meaning "Your Voice") was written by Isabel about feelings she had while talking to her grandmother as her grandmother forgets who Isabel is in mid conversation.

This clip is from Isa's very first show, and the song "Questions without Answers" was written by Isabel originally for Papafoam as she mentions in the beginning.

The Foam - Papafoam
1285558766the foam pic.jpgJust whipped up a groovy number called "The Foam". Isa came up with the riff on friday night, we had a prac on saturday that was broadcast live on the internet at justin.tv/lukebluske from my cel phone! I'm impressed with technology. And the next night during Sunday Night Football we mixed it up on the computer with a coke and a smile. Here it is the freshest Papafoam HIT... The Foam.

Questions without Answers - Papafoam
1285576412questions without answers pic.jpgQuestions without Answers was written by Isabel in the early spring of 2010. Up until now it had only been heard live. This recording session was done by Jeffrey Teruel and the raw stock audio has been sitting on my hard drive growing mold ever since. Motivated by mixing "The Foam", Isa and I went straight to work on this one right afterwards. All of a sudden, Papafoam things are happening! Music is alive once again!
