Messing around with standup bass samples, jazz drums, and uncharacteristically undistorted guitar. This track starts out really fun, but i think gets a bit noisy in the end. Ah well.
Try out: 48 bars
(I love receiving contracts and checks in the mail, but i REALLY love receiving contracts and checks that come in envelopes like this!)
This one is ridiculous.
So, you know i’ve been trying to get my head around lyrics and … erm, singing? Well, as an experiment i tried just singing nonsense (ahem … scatting, if you will) to try to figure out a melody line. I figured i’d come up with lyrics later … but i didn’t. The horror that is me scatting is indescribable, you’ll just have to hear it.
Anyway, it all comes together in this little mess of a pop song aptly titled La la la la la la
I’m still trying to figure out this whole arranging horns thing. I have a vision of doing this sort of sloppy garage punk pop indie stuff … but with horns!
Anyway, this track came out ok. The guitar is a little over processed, and you have to wait till 1:30 to even get to the horn parts, but all in all a pretty inoffensive track.
For your listening pleasure : i am herb alpert
I got sick of always whining about not recording vocals.
So i wrote some lyrics (stupid lyrics *grumble grumble grumble*) …
… and recorded them (stupid voice *grumble grumble grumble*) …
… but my voice still drives me crazy, so i ran it through a vocoder.
Trying for a sad indie pop thing here. And so we get Circling (with robot vocals!)
