This is a funny one - a collective demo that I suspect will always sound far, far better than any band recording we manage to cobble together. As the band's guitarist it burns a little bit to not have played or written a single note of this, but I can't argue with the end result.
Not a cover of the Faith No More song. Oh no.
A big and brooding song recorded in rehearsal by Sredni Vashtar.
We're cheating slightly, as I've already uploaded a version of this song. But hopefully everyone will agree that it sounds a whole lot better. Plus we've added some (discrete) synth parts and have even gone to the trouble of making a video. More tunes on our Soundcloud.
The road trip song - a galloping guitar ramble underpinned by soaring synth strings. By Sredni Vashtar
Inspired by the Adam Curtis documentary, recorded with a variety of gear and 'mastered' using LANDR.
What a difference a few months makes. The original has been reworked and extended and was recorded live a few days ago on the London stage (the Alleycat in Denmark Street). A song by Sredni Vashtar.
Short and sweet. A song about aeroplanes overhead with minimal vocals. Live rehearsal recording by Sredni Vashtar
We made an EP.... here's the title track. Featuring Sredni Vashtar's usual swirls and loops and noises, it was one of four songs recorded and mixed late last summer in South London
Here's a song that was posted a couple years ago of but is now all shiny and new and properly recorded.
After spending a few years rehearsing and making rough and ready demos, Sredni Vashtar finally made it into a real studio last month. Here's one of them - the mix is still a bit rough so it works best on headphones.
Listen, a song by Sredni Vashtar. Recorded, as usual, at rehearsal. The loop drones throughout and the guitar and bass are sparse and simple.
Here's an old song from Sredni Vashtar, revamped, restructured and recorded at rehearsal a few weeks ago
'8 billion pounds is rising from the ground'. A song about the city.
Surprisingly jaunty for us, with a descent into ultra-fast strumming at the end.
Four chords, a guitar loop and loping drums. Trying to keep things simple for once. More here.
Another rough and ready rehearsal recording from Sredni Vashtar
Late night and off-kilter, a love song for the otherwise apathetic. Recorded at rehearsal in South London by Sredni Vashtar and then (lightly) polished. One day we'd like to record this properly (do the vocals properly for example). One day.
Recorded at rehearsal by Radiateur
Another venture into songwriting from our band, radiateur. This one is a Frankenstein song comprising of riffs and motifs written over the years and assembled at leisure.
Noisy, swirly rock song recorded at our band rehearsal a few weeks ago. Apologies for the bum notes and obvious errors.
A semi-instrumental song given a second life after a decade in the demo wilderness.
Spacey indie rock, recorded in rehearsal by our band, radiateur.
A crackly, sketchy demo recording that never found a band.
