I just bought Stanley Clarke’s second album at Goodwill for 50 cents. This song smokes.
I think tumblr should disable reblogging for a day so we can all get to know each other with some original content, for a change. I am actually interested in what all you guys are thinking and creating, and am far, far less interested in reblogged Doctor Who gifs and pictures of desserts.
Amusing story about insane over-reblogging: When I first joined tumblr I found that I could follow Michael Stipe. “Wow! This’ll be great!” He actually did nothing but post pictures of Die Antwoord. Maybe it wasn’t the real Michael Stipe but holy cow that made me wonder about this tumblr thing.
Very few samples in this one. Almost all live guitar, drums, and piano. I recorded this while also Googling “lynchburg va dentist”.
Things I did during my first week of summer break: woke up early and worked out everyday, ate carrots from the garden, painted the back door, and finished this lil’ piece of music. Seven more weeks to try to be equally productive
1. Get up early.
2. Get into shape.
3. Finish one home- or wedding-related project per day.
3a. Finish sanding and painting that green chair.
4. Work on a musical project everyday.
Day one went well.
A crowded, busy conversation between a simple guitar/vocal idea and a million screaming loops. All trying to scream over a million clattering drum tracks.
A new song mostly made of orchestral samples, synthesizers, and beatboxing. No live instruments that I can recall. An exercise in patient “building” that I’m usually very bad at.
I have to release this one into the world now because I’m completely sick of working on it and hearing it. It needs to worm its way into virgin ears.
Just a reminder, you can listen to my new album “Zoom Era” on Spotify! Thanks!
