Hello, all of the folks.

Long hiatus. Sorry about that. It's easy to say things like "I'll make so much content and it'll be great!" But it can sometimes be hard to follow through, or, you know, sit down and actually make stuff. I think I could slide by with an excuse like "life gets busy, doncha' know," but the truth is that I also get lazy, or afraid to create (for fear of failure). On the other hand, there's nothing more satisfying to me than making stuff and putting it in the public domain, so, I guess I'll keep going. Or, well, try.

This song is about debt. It features a hook I've been mumbling on stage for a couple of years now, and I figured it was about time to make good use of it. I think this country's catch 22 with student debt is hard to swallow: go to college and open more doors, but if you weren't born right, get used to blood-letting. I guess.

So, I tried to write about it. I find it hard to be political in my music without sounding pretentious. But this is what I want to comment on, so I'm at a loss for middle-ground. My fix was nature imagery with a dash of symbolism toward the themes in question. If the political element is too much and you just want to listen to the song, then just ignore the stuffy metaphors and let it be about trees and stuff.

Oh, I guess I should link the track:

Release early, often, and if you have the inclination,
mess with someone else's recordings and release those too.

It's actually something that helps one grow as a recording and mixing artist, namely not mixing and mastering your own work but someone elses. Herr Wilson was kind enough to let me get inside the engine of his new machine and tinker. I didn't do much, but you should listen with headphones.

In the dark.
With a teddy bear.
Stereo Friend.

Some new track recordings and mixes!
I've been keeping my head down and working hard on the music front and though I've been MIA here on site I have not been MIA in the real world where stuff actually happens.

And I think Betty will prove it. White Hot Betty.
Or Monster, take your pick really.

Lo-Fi recording anyone?

There is a strange long term trend in music recording, with the thought being "Louder is better." A big part of what the industry considers Radio-Ready is having the volume of the recording as loud as possible. I don't know why, PInk Floyd recorded Dark Side of The Moon without compressors or adaptive limiters to crank levels right to the clip line. That album still sounds amazing. However, we're not releasing tracks in the seventies, so watch your eardrums kids.
