Description : BIG UPDATE 26/02/2014 - So, this was an 18 min track that I have now successfully split in two. 2nd half I uploaded a few weeks ago (Things That Should Always Be, with the bouncy 2 min reggae intro). This is the first half, which has a new mix, a mega chill, meditative ending and a little jazz thrown in for good measure. Takes a few minutes for beat to really kick in. Constantly evolving electric guitar, bass guitar, acoustic drums and lead banjo driven by fat, busy 80BPM grooves with a bit of a reggae and shuffle feel. Also: synth choir voices, dulcimer, violin, cello, shimmering pads. Builds up gradually to nice and rocking and then gets taken back down for the big comedown chill. I really don't know what sort of genre this is except 'far out'. I think it sounds more like a live band than one guy playing instruments and manipulating a DAW. Not my best track but a bit of blissful, sunny island fun. Real positive vibe here so I hope you give it a chance to unfold and unfurl. Sit back, clear your schedule and immerse yourself in these trippy sonic experiments cooked up deep in my off-planet underground laboratory. I have to send the MP3 to Earth via space courier (not cheap).

the name of the song makes me think... its a plus to a cool tune like this. Very feel good vibe and groovy. Soundtrack for a "small story" like movie, those with a cute and naive character hehe.
Good work, for real.

creative soundtrack SN...the main section bounces right along & the variations keep the ears perked...nicely done...Ed
StaticNomad replied 2nd Mar 2014 - 10 years ago
Yeah, guess it is a bit of a soundtrack piece, with the sparseness in the first minute or so and the choice voices (which is a synth) and shimmering pads and stuff. The banjo is kind of the guide navigating us through that section.

The main section definitely has some bounce and I worked really hard to layer those drums (multiple kits) and keep them interesting and powerful all the time.

There's country trainbeat, reggae, funk, hard rock and more in those drum styles.

The other track is much more rocking and psychedelic but kicks off with some bouncy reggae. If you want to hear it, here it is:

Things That Should Always Be

Thanks for checking this one out.

Hey the update sounds great. Got a closer listen from this trip a mix you do good. Effective all round. 7 - 9 minutes of the track got me listening back a couple times. Dig it man, like how you use those type of instrument sounds in the fashion that you do. Hovering outside the body through thought. Still can see the first image this shared some time ago. Just wanted to say good work thanks. Peace.

Thanks for checking back in and commenting again.

I think the featured tracks section should partly be about people doing updates and commenters giving their views again on any improvements. Sometimes the changes might be no good.

I like commenting on people's updates and have done it with your stuff.

Definitely a good idea to split the 18 min track in two. Unsurprisingly, I've added about 1 min to one, 2 mins to the other after the split.

I'm fairly happy with this though there are some problems with some of the guitar sounds but that's just how I recorded them and don't think I can make them much better.

"Still can see the first image this shared some time ago."

Yeah, I think it's quite an evocative piece and paints quite a chilled, far out picture in the first minute. But I have to get grooving so I do. I think there is also some of this in the intro:

"Hovering outside the body through thought"

I am so chilled its unreal :)

StaticNomad replied 1st Mar 2014 - 10 years ago
Cool. Don't forget to warm yourself up again after the unreal chilling.

But it's not all chilling in this one. Some good funky rocking too, especially with the overdriven guitars on 5:34.

holy crap lotsa long comments to scroll past tryinna find this little box lol

all i can say is WOW - very creative man, well executed, and definitely groovin.. if people don't listen to the whole thing, it's their loss.

StaticNomad replied 1st Mar 2014 - 10 years ago
Yes, lots to read here, as is always the case with my tracks, with me doing most of the lengthy writing.

It's partly me just jotting down my thoughts about the track and I may go off and write stuff in replies that more brief commenters didn't really want to know (I may be doing that right now).

Yes, groove is my motivation and instrument playing driving force. If I'm not grooving, I'm a bit lost - unless it's long, legato, slow soundscape ambient stuff.

"if people don't listen to the whole thing, it's their loss."

I think it all hangs together and when I've listened to it a good few times in the past few days, I've generally been happy to let it play and listen to all or most of it.

I do very lengthy music (this is about mid range length) so probably not for people only interested in brief, immediate stuff. It's psychedelic, tripping, reflecting music.

I also incorporate a lot of blues and have a whole album of alternative blues stuff.

After your recent blues upload, with excellent guitar, I think you might be interested in a few of my blues uploads on here.

So, check out:

Knee Deep In The Cosmic Overwhelm
Pre-Birth Blues
Thousand Ball Blues
Six Of One
A Shackle For The Free.
Zero Per Cent Proof

All quite different and incorporating various types of blues plus other electro and drum elements.

Thanks for your thoughts...

Hi MrNomad,
Thanks for bringing this one up again to our attention.
This is a damn good one!

Even if the title suggests some sort of "sadness" I find this song more "reflective" than sad.
Maybe this is due to the female-vocal part which leads us through the journey (very well done by the way, subtle and very effective in highlighting the right passages).

The song starts immediately very well: a nice catchy bass part. Probably once more a processed guitar and not a real bass: it sounds like a "real" bass, the only strange thing is the way some slides are rendered.
But who cares if this is a real bass or not: it works well, and that's the only thing that counts.

Please let me spend a couple of words on the initial drum part: one of your finest ones!
I like the way you don't "overdo" it, keeping it interesting but never busy. Good!

The delayed banjo has more a "soundscape" function, the listener is carried away by the sound itself and not by the melody. This is one of your distinctive traits: you have a special touch for letting the sounds "ring and sing".
Maybe that's something we should hear more often.

The bass change aroung 1:50 is interesting: we go into a more "hypnotic" section.
So the guitar kicking in shortly before 3:00 has to be "strange" as it is. Good.
Drum doubling then, again one of your trade-marks ;-)

This leads us into a nice "middle section" where we have a "thicker" sound. Interesting how you manage to keep it "alive" for several minutes. Normally I would say that this section is too long, since there is no special "theme" catching the listener's hear, but you master this very well, so it's long but not boring.

I like how the song develops: it grows and then it comes back to the starting point, with the female voice coming back right in time to say goodbye.
I always like this kind of "fil rouge".

It's almost 10 minutes but they flow in a very natural way.
Once more, you did not disappoint me.
Ciao, Domenico
StaticNomad replied 27th Feb 2014 - 10 years ago
Hi. I guess you missed this track first time round, when it was 18 mins long. Now it's half the length and better all round.

Second half you have heard and liked and is called Things That Should Always Be, the one with the 2 min reggae intro.

The title sounds a bit sad but it's actually a shortened version of a great concept captured in the phrase 'things that have never happened happen all the time'.

Maybe I should just call the track that but I felt it was a little too long.

I hope you noticed the female vocal (it's a synth) has some fun pitch bend on it.

No, bass part really is bass guitar! Hard to tell in my songs (as I have about 5 different methods for making bass) but it doesn't matter for listeners, only for musicians/producers.

Slides probably have a stereo widening effect on them but it's all my own chopped up playing.

Initial drums not one of my favourites (gets much better later on) but I agree that it's quite sparse and not overdone. Have to give the banjo and bass some space!

Yes, banjo sound really creates the mood here but I also think it's very melodic and emotive. Banjo only has short sustain but I play it with delay so like to let the notes ring out.

I'm mostly a groove instrument player so I just do simple stuff around the beat and then let notes ring out while I think up what to do next. Combine legato and staccato and you have groove and good variety - that's how I see things.

Bass at 1:50 goes into the main bass loop and where it starts to become a grooving song. Still just one bass guitar!

Middle section is what I see as the main, insistent, repeated riff, which starts on 4:40 though I spend a couple of minutes building up to that.

I love the guitars there (just chopped up playing, never played that riff as you hear it).

"there is no special "theme" catching the listener's hear"

I disagree and hear it as a riff I can sing (even though I can't sing).

5:34 I love it when it goes heavy and I then add some different chopped up guitar notes for variety.

Then, 5:58 we drop down into some killer new riffs (with little bits of high guitar squeal).

Towards the end, we move into some jazz to take the song down (6:58) with violin and female vocal doing long notes.

Then return to start, with some parts identical to intro. Nice banjo conclusion. Then big, ambient fadeout, with the dulcimer having the final say with one last, low note.

I did not know the phrase 'fil rouge' but looked it up and now understand it. You could also maybe say 'motif'.

"It's almost 10 minutes but they flow in a very natural way."

Good as I make it in a very unnatural way! So much editing to do but I love doing and if I didn't do it, there wouldn't be as much creativity in my work. Editing is my special compositional technique. I do more cutting up and sampling (of myself) than any hip hop producer.

Thanks for your thoughts. More music coming soon.
Burtsbluesboxes 27th Feb 2014 05:36 - 10 years ago
Darn aliens abandonded me in space, can you have that space courier pick me up on the way by? This does sound like a live band, really cool! Are you sure this isn't live? :D I have to go to the full version now that was Great!! :D
StaticNomad replied 27th Feb 2014 - 10 years ago
Sure, send your coordinates and I'll send my space courier by on the way back to me.

I always offer that service to people who check out my tracks and then get so high and far out (literally) that they need returning to Mother Earth. I feel almost entirely responsible for sending them out there so feel I have a duty of care.

No, certainly no band, live or otherwise, here. Just one guy jamming away and editing those jams down and making multiple tracks on the same project timeline from all the playing and edits and additional synths and drum programming and stuff.

It was an 18.5 min track but I felt it was too long, especially as there are killer riffs that it took 15 mins to get to. I've been trying to do shorter tracks so now this one is 9:40 and the other 11:52 so neat little pop singles after that edit. Guaranteed hit singles and international magazine cover status when they're released.

What a surprise that after the edit I added more to each half. I can spin endless stuff out of some riffs and sections if I revisit after a while away, which is partly why I make such long tracks. Ideas that are months and years apart.

Here's the second half, with its new bouncy reggae 2 min intro.

Enjoy and thanks for checking it and this track out

Things That Should Always Be

Dear friend!

Your clear mix and master is unique and I think not just here...this is pro work and I always feel myself an asshole while listening your tracks...that's for intro...:-)

This music always free doesn't matter 18 or stg minutes, gives me a special state...after it, to rehear it, gives me always new things to discover...a musical ride (using this cliche)...

Thanx for your songs Alex, nice meeting with them all the time

Best, Danke
StaticNomad replied 6th Dec 2013 - 10 years ago
Hey, thanks. You shouldn't feel like an asshole listening to my stuff. I guess you're just trying to say that you think it's really good so feel inferior when listening to it. But you do good stuff yourself so nothing to feel bad about.

If you want to do stuff more like mine, I think the way to do it is to do lots more jamming and then detailed careful editing of all the parts. Keep copying and pasting the parts and then jamming on top and then edit those new parts in.

So, after doing one take of guitar recording, I have sitting on my Cubase timeline sometimes twenty different/slightly different guitar fills for the end of the bar. And I can choose to use any of them(I just have to unmute the part). Or I could use two of them, maybe panning one to the left, one to the right.

Difficult for me to explain how I do what I do though I suppose it is a bit unusual.

I try to think about every single part and spend lots of time working on each one, trying out different ideas and effects. And then I use lots of those ideas and effects as the track progresses. So that's why there's so much detail and always something new to notice when you listen back. Everything is constantly moving!

When I have a synth part that works well, I almost always try copying that whole instrument and then choosing a new synth to play the same MIDI data. This is a great way of adding a different feel to the track. SO, I know the MIDI notes are good playing and just have to go through all the presets I have and choose a cool sound.

I don't know if any of that advice made sense but I hope so. Describing these things can be hard. I have developed lots of simple but powerful techniques over the 14 years I have been recording and making music using computer software.

Take care!
ALXSIX 6th Dec 2013 00:09 - 10 years ago
This is magnificent man! I love progressive track like that, length isn't a problem at all, on the contrary! It's like all the instruments have a life on their own and progress and interact with each other. It just evolves so naturally and so smoothly.
Outstanding work. Can't wait to hear the second part!
StaticNomad replied 6th Dec 2013 - 10 years ago
Thanks. Instruments having a life of their own and progressing smoothly is what I aim for. But it takes a lot of work as I don't really plan these things out. It's really a lot of editing of different jamming.

It's mostly long because I keep doing more jamming and recording more material that I feel is good enough to be included. One good part often inspires lots of other new ones on different instruments.

Working this way is awkward and confusing but it also produces loads of strange combinations of notes and sounds that I probably couldn't achieve any other way. And I certainly didn't imagine them, work out how to do them and then make them happen. Lots of happy accidents though no one who's listening knows for certain where they are.

This way of working means that I'm kind of free to record in a very relaxed way, not worrying about getting everything perfect and always doing some improvisational stuff I hadn't planned.

You don't have to wait to hear the full length version, as it can be heard here:

I've been making small improvements to this for the past few days (haven't uploaded it yet) but it's OK now to check out the full thing. Especially as the second half has some of the best and most rocking guitar.

Thanks for your words. Not everyone's into lengthy stuff but I know there are some out there...
Satyagraha 5th Dec 2013 19:18 - 10 years ago
Holy crap its reminds me of shpongle and ozric tenticales)
very triipy) eastern fairy taiL))) gj nice job)
StaticNomad replied 5th Dec 2013 - 10 years ago
Thanks. I'm a huge fan of those groups though both did their best work years ago. Ozrics not really a whole good album since about 1997 and the Shpongle albums have got progressively worse since that brilliant debut.

I can't say I think this track reminds me much of either group but I guess it must. Perhaps I don't notice because I've made so much far out music over the years.
I've probably got other stuff that's more like those two groups (this one doesn't have as much synth - sound more like an acoustic live band, I guess).

Definitely a track such as Circular Motion has some clear Ozrics vibes. That's probably because I came up with it directly after staying round the flat of John, the flute player from the Ozrics.

Right Place Wrong Century is another good trippy Eastern one.

By the way, I notice you live in Almaty. I've been there a couple of times (about ten years ago) as my parents used to live there.

Thanks for checking out my stuff.
Spivkurl 5th Dec 2013 14:27 - 10 years ago
It's always a pleasure to listen to your works! I have to be honest, aside from You, Amethyst To Turquoise, jazz, and the occasional goa trance I'm not much into long songs, but you're in the list! For me the best thing about this song, and many of your songs in general is how you create a space for the "band" to exist in, like an atmosphere that suggests reality. This is definitely a tight track! I really enjoyed the part around 5:40 or so, but I guess I'm like very into software distortion and amp sims and stuff like that! Your use of delay throughout the song is subtle, professional, and yet a little bit dubby too. Your playing and editing skills are definitely on display! I dig it! Faved for sure!
StaticNomad replied 5th Dec 2013 - 10 years ago
Word up, Monsieur Kurl. I just tried looking Amethyst To Turquoise up but mostly found jewellery links. Then I found a Facebook page of some ambient artist with that name so that's go to be it!

Yeah, I guess maybe you're trying to say this sounds a bit like a live band who are playing in front of some ambient bed or vibe. I think I know what you mean. Ozric Tentacles (best space rock band ever) are wonderful at that. Used to have two synth players, one pretty much permanently on atmospheres that the band would play the actual constructed song over (other synth player was guitarist who would come off guitar to do awesome synth solos).

There's not actually much ambient bed stuff here (mostly shimmering stuff in first 2 mins) as guitar, banjo, drums and bass guitar do most of the work.

But, delay helps take the place of ambient pads, which I don't use as much as you might think or expect (I love em but they can take up too much space). Quite often it's just heavily delayed guitar parts. And I do control the feedback on the delay, a bit like in dub.

Yes, around 5:35 is maybe my favourite bit. Bit like simple verse-chorus-verse grunge there (eg Nirvana's Lithium) where you just take the same riff, step on your distortion pedal and the drummer moves to his crash cymbals or open hihat. I like the new guitar parts that it goes into on 6:00 after the drums come back down from those cymbals.

I've got a slightly better version of this which I'm yet to upload. All the same, check the full Soundcloud version as a lot of my favourite stuff happens after about 11 mins.

Thanks again for your thoughts and observations.
theHumps 5th Dec 2013 12:02 - 10 years ago
I started to listen to this yesterday and got a phone call and had to return to give it a full listen. First off I am not a fan of long songs, give me a 2:30 song and I'm happy. I do however give tracks a listen if the description is interesting.

I really liked the banjo, not often heard here at the loop, it really added a cool acoustic feel. Quite a bit going on and there were some interesting changes and mood swings.

I used to love how the Doors would just jam and improvise on a groove kinda like jazz musicians do when they jam. They often go off in different directions but stay somewhat grounded to the original idea. I feel you are doing something similar here.

I did listen to the whole track here and it was interesting but just too long for my taste, that is nothing against your wonderful production, it was very well put together!

StaticNomad replied 5th Dec 2013 - 10 years ago
Well thanks for checking it out. I got the banjo a couple of years ago and have recorded a lot with it since then and it features prominently in quite a few tracks I've uploaded to the site.

They include: An Early Morning Appointment With God, Right Place Wrong Century and Into The Out There.

Yes, I'm not sure I've heard a single track on this site containing banjo. I also don't understand why it's not used more in electronic music (ie outside country and bluegrass and related genres) as it can be very cool. Mine's 6 string so just another guitar to me.

I do a lot of jamming on various grooves and wandering off but staying grounded to a sound, a key, that sort of thing. This track has quite a consistency to the different sections - I have others which change a lot more.

I fully appreciate that a lot of people can't cope with stuff that's over 8 minutes - and certainly not an 18 min track like this.

I am trying hard to do shorter stuff, with some success, but some things just all fit together so well that it feels wrong to cut them down. I guess I make music for a very niche and probably dwindling audience - people who want to put on a whole album and sit back and chill to it rather than just sample a quick little song.

Doesn't matter so much if tracks are over 10 minutes if you're listening for, say, an hour.

Thanks for your honest thoughts.
crucethus 5th Dec 2013 02:20 - 10 years ago
Haunting beginning, reminds me of For your pleasure from Roxy Music. with the delays.
(Live mix from the early 2000's) Song from 1972
now you know If I am comparing you to Roxy you are doing something creative and cool for my taste. Eb major also a nice fluffy happy tune, less psychedelic and just plain fun. Percussion is awesome as well, good fills, snares and toms. 4:15 mark is really fun. Very good arranging of the instruments on this one. This is a tune I would want to hear live, in fact the way you mixed it makes me feel that this could be live! (we know the truth) You have many musical ideas going on with this one. 6:00 mark, guitars are cool. A little darker transition starting at 7:00, There is a small subtle hint of you wanting to bring it to DM but you just flirt with it while keeping it in Eb, but you change the mode. (the suddenly middle eastern feel) 9:24 has a nice groove to it. Self indulgent indeed but a lot of fun. And right at the end you transition to Eb minor going back and forth on that chord and Bb...sneaky.
good job
StaticNomad replied 7th Dec 2013 - 10 years ago
Sorry for my late reply. I struggle to see the link between this track and For Your Pleasure, which I didn't much like (especially Ferry's vocals), though I did listen to the whole thing trying to spot the link. Must be the odd delayed keyboard part that comes in after a couple of minutes.

Yes, I do like the drums in this track. It's my usual multiple acoustic kit affair but I think they sound similar or are well matched so sort of sound like one big kit. Gives the track a real consistency that is maintained throughout the 18 mins though you'll hear the occasional cowbell in the second half.

Yes, 4:15 I find fun and also kind of fluffy and happy. Does all sound a bit like a live band. Shame I don't have one! 6:00 guitars have some good little squeals and 16th note rapid end of bar fills that I like to do (I can generally only play that fast, and in time, in short bursts).

Thought you'd like the dulcimer, banjo and Eastern stuff in this eg from around 6:50 on. That same bass guitar thundering away providing a good anchor. I use it a hell of a lot in this track but hope it doesn't get too boring. I find these end, darker sections very musical, even though I don't really know what I'm doing in terms of changing key. I just know the mode I've made up and hit those new, correct notes and then branch out a bit.

Since uploading this I've improved it a bit in various ways. I strongly considered splitting it in two but don't think that will now happen (would have called the other half Things That Always Were).

This track will be on my nearly finished album called For The Long-Form Lovers. 4 tracks - around 65 mins running time!

Look out for it in all good record stores soon (not really).

Thanks again for checking out my self indulgent noodlings.
DesignedImpression 4th Dec 2013 10:24 - 10 years ago
Sounds like a conversation with someone. The second half after 10 47 one of them got heated and walked away while the other one took a step back realized and said something meaningful that calmed the heated person. Things start feeling good again. Leading into thinking how that other person completes them. Idk just what I was thinking while listening to 18 minutes and 19 seconds of this psychedelic Eastern epic groove rock.

I enjoyed the story Static, thank you. Your time is creatively spent even if there is still room for adjustments. keep doing what you do. That circular motion is a good trip from you as well. Peace.
StaticNomad replied 5th Dec 2013 - 10 years ago
Wow - someone's checked out the full version! I certainly can't say I was thinking of your scene between two people in conversation when making this. But no problem if that's what you get from it - read into it what you like. Better that it inspires something rather than nothing.

The earlier observation of "drunk on a tropical island" makes more sense to me.

I have made some adjustments to this since uploading, though nothing too major. But they're improvements, all the same.

Yes, Circular Motion is one of my greatest tracks ever, quite possibly the greatest. I made it about 12 years ago when I was a lot worse than I am now at mixing and arranging and stuff. It all came out pretty damn easily and was truly inspired as I started composing it after returning from staying round the flat of the flute player from one of my favourite bands of all time - Ozric Tentacles (space rock legends).

Thanks for your continued interest and encouragement. I liked your latest upload (Thoughts Of You Instrumental Alt Version) as you will see from the comments I left on it.
Evisma 4th Dec 2013 01:45 - 10 years ago
I can handle it!! But maybe later,... I'll try the sampler.

The beginning, before the banjo, reminds me of some late Floyd.

So many moments where I think your about to let loose, but you use restraint. Building the excitement. A very "drunk on a tropical island" feel. This would also be great kite flying music.

Guitar at 5:34 kind of slaps you in the face and wakes you back up. Says "Pay Attention!"

Nice interplay there at 8:47. I would have jumbled the crap out of that.

Ah! Right where it gets a darker feel it cuts off. I may have to visit the cloud. I like this one.

StaticNomad replied 4th Dec 2013 - 10 years ago
If by "let loose" you mean "get heavy", I'm always looking to do that as I like the excitement it provides. There's much more heavy stuff in the second half of the 18 mins.

5:34 heavy section is perhaps my favourite in this half (yes, I agree with "Pay Attention!"). Kind of wish I'd got some of that heaviness in earlier. Not sure if you can tell, but it's mostly just putting the clean guitar you've hear for the previous bars through an overdriven software amp. With, obviously, a move to the crash cymbal. But those two things sort of makes it sound like a new part.

This track's bass is almost entirely bass guitar, which may interest you.

I have actually been drunk on a tropical island. Martinique in 1997. That's when I really learned about regular large amounts of alcohol not agreeing with me. Found myself having to give up for a couple of days just so that I could start again! The beer was even on tap at lunch in the Club Med I was in.

Thanks for noticing the 8:47 banj0-guitar interplay (love that short section). It was previously a lot jumblier but I spent ages editing both banjo (lots of fast runs there) and guitar to get them not to clash. What they're playing does clash (I played each separately, didn't intend for them to go together) but I just kept chopping notes out. They also both have delay which makes a mess more likely. That's another trick - remove the delay, even if just for a second or two, if things are getting too messy.

That's why, these days, I very rarely record delay with my guitar, bass or banjo (cos then you can't remove it). I add it in software afterwards so that I can control it very carefully. Also makes chopping up stuff as much as I do much easier.

See - you did have some useful points to make so thanks for making them.

I'm still not happy with the first couple of minutes in this one. Nice as it is, I think things should get rocking sooner. Maybe I'll do something about that but bit fed up of working on this right now.

Have fun with the full version. The extra minutes have most of the best rocking. There's even a very conscious key change in one section!
evilarmy83 3rd Dec 2013 23:41 - 10 years ago
Holey Moley.... There's alot going on in the music of "Things that have never been" I dug it man, kinda sounds like a jam band.
StaticNomad replied 4th Dec 2013 - 10 years ago
Yes. Lots going on but about the same amount of changes and progressions usual for me as . But there are fewer instruments and sounds than unusual.

Maybe a bit like a jam band. But I hope it's a bit tighter than your average jam band.

If you think you might have the stamina for the full length version, check it out here:

Second half has some more rocking stuff that might appeal to you.

Yeah - it is a bit heavenly. I go there from time to time and these were the kind of sounds I heard so I sampled them with a small dictaphone and incorporated them into this track.

Don't know if copyright laws apply to material from up above. But if I've sinned, may God strike me down and take back his samples...

Lots of love and joy in this - I agree.

Thanks. I have a lot of it and I don't just mean in this mega lengthy track. I've uploaded loads of far out epics in the past few months.

Thanks for the interest.

Description : This is my newest creation, at a stage very near to completion. No third-party mastering or mixing, as with all my tracks. Just have to fix a few tiny things. I FINALLY WAS ABLE TO MIX EVERYTHING IN THE SAME SESSION. This song has all human-played instruments - no quantization or MIDI! My brother does all the vocals except for the interlude part, which I do. My other brother plays the rhythm guitar (a Gibson Les Paul Custom - only one of 12 in the world!!) and I play the accompanying guitar (a Johnny Mar Jag and PRS). He has a lot of guitars :P A good friend of ours, Ronnie, plays the bass and another friend, Freddie, plays the drums. The drum track was done in one take (had to use an electric drum set due to time constraints - but acoustic kits are so much better). Overall, pretty satisfied with the result. Let me know your thoughts.

Description : The first track I sing on. Cheap stage mic & no fancy plugins. Heavily guitar laden to the point it's got a bit of a shoegaze thing going on. I pulled the lyrics out of my ass & yes, they're a bit silly.

Description : Truly one of my greatest tracks. An intense, constantly changing psychedelic deep groove journey through reggae, rock, metal, funk, blues, electronica, deep chillout and more. Slow, fast, funky, beautiful, weird, fun plus a few more adjectives. Big arpeggiated strings, slide resonator guitar, electric guitars, detuned guitar playing massive funky basslines, wicked wah, squelchy synth bass + other synths, acoustic metal and brush drumkits, hip hop drum hits and no loops. Very complex structure and mix so maybe I haven't got it right. Full track is 13 mins 55, link is in comments. Let me know if you don't think it's as good as I do. Or better. Or self-indulgent rubbish. Now get ready to rock. And then write a 10,000 word essay describing it all...
