I had a band that was a shameless Tenacious D rip-off back in college, and we spent most of our time writing songs that made fun of artists we thought were lame. Recently, I discovered a cassette tape with an original demo that put the song back into my ear. Out of all the songs, I decided it would be fun to try to make more than just an acoustic song. It might be overkill, but sometimes, so is Radiohead.
I haven't posted in a while, and without any good reason. I have a LOT of half-finished stuff sitting on my hard drive, and with a day off, I decided it was time to record some vocals and get at least one song finished.
It's one of my least favorite christmas carols, so it seemed appropriate to tackle it instead of something that I cherish (and therefore wasn't willing to tamper with). Decided to drop a verse or two, because let's face it...who isn't a little sick of christmas music.
A song written for a boring snowy day. Ambient/slow-hop/dreamscape techno at it's most. After all, who hasn't lost almost an entire day playing in FruityLoops, right?
I was determined to get something into the mefi challenge this month, and what's better subject material than Dracula? Nothing. The mix isn't the best, but I've been playing with it too long, so I'd rather have it out there in the atmosphere. Why not.
My first attempt bringing live instrumentation to my Garageband exodus. I have messed with making it louder, but it makes it sound way too flat, so my apologies to you and your music knobs. Either way, this is a song about a tomb. Not necessarily death, as the metaphors mix if you look too much for the meaning. Rock music does these sorts of things.
My girlfriend was having a bad day, so in about an hour, I wrote and recorded a song in an attempt to cheer her up. Why not share it?
In an effort to become a better singer/songwriter, I need to start posting my work. My sense of embarrassment on mediocre songs will hopefully kick in and force me to start doing a better job to redeem myself. That's the idea, at least. No instruments, as well. This was done entirely with vocals running through a Shure SM-58, then heavily processed and mixed in Garageband. (headphones recommended)
