Did you know that we are at war with an Earth band? That’s right. We are. I wasn’t going to mention it, but then I realized that if we didn’t tell you the odds would be in the favor our our enemy because there are more people in their band…
Los Campesinos! you are going down.
Punk rock may have broken all our heart’s in 2007 but that doesn’t mean I will sit idly by when a band with much more popularity almost steals our August show at the Mercury Lounge.
Yes you heard me right…we were almost bumped off that bill so that Los Campesinos! could have a PRACTICE show before their Bowery Ballroom gig. Maybe this is because they couldn’t all fit in a practice room — there’s SO DAMN MANY OF THEM!
And that is why I thought you should know, lil fanbase, because I’m small and need protection. PSYCHE!!! ATTACK!!! You are going down Campesinos! (Also, Aleks…just because you are no longer a Campesinos! doesn’t mean that you are safe from my wrath)
We are going to win. It will look like this.3 comments
this is kinda cool . . .
had no idea it existed until the other night . . .No comments
i’ve taken some more organic sounding percussion and paired it with a minimal, more spazzy beat and a stompy, almost brassy sounding synth for the main ‘hook’ . . .
there’s also an atmospheric pad that evolves throughout the course of the track . . .
oh and a sweeties guitar line which has not been recorded yet . . .
i like this track alot . . .still much to be done but going somewhere swell . . .No comments
so my most excellent friends at naked highway have asked me to do a radio edit of the In and Out remix . . . which won’t be out for a few months . . . .
i guess they’re planning on doing an alternate video for this version . . . apparently some people have really been responding positively to the track . . . which is totes sweeties . .
anyways here is the first attempt at a ‘radio edit’ . . . which apparently means the track has to be under 4:00 minutes . . . this one is 3:59 . . . had to lose the guitar solo . . . which was awesome but completely unnecessary . . .
you can still here the full version with sweeties guitar solo on the sound///audio site . . .
side note . . . this is a pretty large project with over 42 tracks of audio and midi . . .lots of vocals . . .
side note 2 . . . the more i work with audio the more i’m starting to really hear the difference between high quality audio files and MP3s . . . somethings really get lost in the translation . . . makes me want to buy CDs again . . .1 comment
this is something i’ve been writing on and off for about two months . . .
i keep opening it and adding to it . . . most recently today . . .
the end is a disaster but it rambles on rather nicely before the train wreck . . .
a little bit more about the atmosphere than the mighty hook . . .No comments
hello again from the aound///audio blog . . . this is called static age . .
started this a few months back . . . just picked up where it began . . .
there are bigger plans for this track . . . the idea now is to nail down the majority of its moving parts . . . still skimpy on melody and mix though . . .
hope you like . . .
Model 001 has suggested that I double post any sound///audio entry onto the Last Year’s Model blog. I thought it was an excellent suggestion . . .
after all we are all connected . . .
this is a sketch of a new track that i’m working on . . .
the ideas are all there but the flow is weak andit’s still quite skimpy on melody . . .
