I can sing and play guitar, bass, keyboards, omnichord, theremin, autoharps, zither, melodica, clarinet, musical saw, noisy gadgets and then program/fake the things I can't play.
Apart from my soloproject I also play with these bands
Ghost Karaoke indierock
Suburban Savages prog/krautrock
That sounds like a plan!
If you want, I can send one with a click intro. I typically cut off that stuff and give .75 seconds as an intro. I mean, you will put it into your daw with as much lead time as you want anyway...just let me know.
I used 120nom to record it, but sometimes I wasn't totally faithful to it.
Thanks! Good to get some constructive criticism for once 😀 It's hard to program something like the Wonderwall drums, eh. More complex than they let on.
thanks for listening and commenting! Yeah, i went back and forth on the drums on "lonesome vale" but ultimately left them in since it was out of my comfort zone as well.
Hey there....I will be checking out more of your songs this weekend. We were talking about mic preamps and such before and I just was paid for a recording job that I did at the beginning of winter....They knew what I was going to buy next and just bought that for me for payment...I am so excited..they bought me a Warm Audio WA412! That was what I was going to buy next anyway, so....anyway, I will let you know what I think about it. I have half of a FAWM to use it in any way that I can think of. Apparently, since this thing has come out last year, loads of people have been selling their API 312 and 3124. The upside of the WA is that it has several additions, such as an output trim and impedance switch from 600ohms to 150 ohms. Well, and it is only about $300 per channel.
I seriously should check them out...like a proper listen. It would seem as though I would like them.
Hey thanks! I guess I should listen to Yo La Tengo! Apparently some of my songs sound like them. I don't own anything by them, have never seen them, and couldn't name a song....somehow, I guess I sound like them to some degree....Thanks for the comments
Thanks for checking out Dark Mirror. Drums are fake, crushed with Devil Loc and Decapitator. Favorite tools, though I took a break from Decapitator for a while.
Hearing your strat in your songs makes me wish I had a strat! *Cries*
Haha no, Tiny Turkeys was not done to a click. I just tried to keep up with myself. I like the slight chaos that develops when recording multiple tracks with no click track. I consider it part of my "sound". I did use the ukulele track as a primary, though. Good luck! ☺️
That's cool! Let me know which lyrics you aren't using so I could maybe post those in the meantime?
Hey, thanks for the compliment about murnie - we had a lot of fun together and I'm proud of those songs. Don't worry I will be posting songs soonish. Having written two I'm prettu much up to speed - just need to find to demo them and post them.
Hey, Thanx for the comments!
Yes, I pitch shifted the Melodica; I find the ukulele and Melodica together are too annoyingly high and I need some bass in there.
Sure I'll send you the tracks to mess around with - I'll try to get them on Dropbox by the end of the day.
Sent the Google Doc link via SoundCloud! Let me know what you think 😀
Hey, I'm back, and I've got a few possible lyrics ready for collab, if you want me to email them or link a Google Doc?
Let me know!
Sounds like we have the same weather... I am 100% a SUMMER person, so that is why FAWM is perfect for me. Stay inside the studio and only have to go out for work.
Exactly... You hit it right on the head. I somehow managed to write a pleasing sounding song that sounds all reverent, when in my head I really wanted to call it "I *@%!$# Hate Snow". 😮
Thanks for listening...
Thanks for checking out my surf tune! Much appreciated, as always! 😀
Thx for comments on "Simple Choice." Trying to make more headphone mixes. Hehe.
Boy, I know your band and I know of Panzerpappa. Any chance you know Anthony Garone (Make Weird Music)? RIO is a small world, I guess!
Also yeah big fan of Von Zamla, specifically their 80s record Familjepricksor (under the name Zamla Mammas Manna). Lovely stuff!
Euphonium was probably a better sound for the part anyway! Have a great FAWM and I look forward to hearing what you come up with!
Happy FAWMing to you this year!
Hey, I remember you from last FAWM. Cool that we got paired up for the random collab. Just to get this out of the way, do you have a policy in regards to collaboration, copyright, etc.? Or is FAWM just for fun, and everything we each write belongs to us?
I'm looking forward to collabing with you, and FAWM starts tomorrow!
Hey! Thanks so much for your that kind words! It would be an honor to me if we maintained the tradition... 😀
I am really sorry I still haven't gotten that trombone part to you. I need to practice and get it done. Ugh.
Hello!! I hope you have an awesome FAWM this year!! Oh, and thank you so much for checking those out! You are so nice. 😀
Thanks for reminding me about Rewire. I played with it a bit in the past - I'm just a bit wary of resource usage when having both Reason and Studio One running. May have to give it a go again. My current PC is quite a bit more capable than the last time I tried it.
Hiya! Looking forward to hearing more from you and your awesome studio.
Hello again, I'll be keeping an ear out for your songs.
Hey Mt. Melodie, lets do this!
Glad to see you back, and I would love to do a collaboration with you again. Really looking forward to hearing your musical magic again. 😀
I looked into it and you did get a good deal. Does it come with any plugins, or do you have to buy them all?
I've never heard of that DAW, but that's not too surprising. I'm definitely up for some collaboration with you again. That sounds great!
Yeah, you do have a great sound. You use ableton, right? Or, is it logic....hmmm...
I'm looking forward to this year. You? I hope that you are doing well. I've enjoyed our FAWM friendship, for sure.
Maybe collaborate again this year?
