Not bad. How did you record this album, Alf? That snare drum is fantastic.

Fuckin' A thanks man.

The Snare. Ahh the snare. A bit o sound design. 2 sampled real snares and another sample of a snare sound I created using an old trunk, change, empty cd cases, etc... all fused.

Everything was done more or less 'in box' on an Akai DPS12i. I bumped shit around when 'mastering' with another DAW. I used an outboard Carvin 12 channel mixer. All percussion/samples from my trusty MPC. I don't use drum programs though. I sample everything myself then mix, match, and tweak. I have the 8 out expander so I can run different sounds through to separate mixer channels and the sum the tracks into a stereo pair on the DAW.

I 'noname' brand free electric guitar(thanks Glen!), some kind of bass guitar, a borrowed J-station, a Digitech RP-7 fx thingy, and an SM58 mic.

I would love any feedback/criticism. This was my first time doing this. I pretty much learned as I went. Couldn't really 'play' any instruments at 1st.

I downloaded it without any problem.
First, looking at the tracklist, i thought there was a lot of songs, then listening to it, i saw that half is just short interludes.
I really like the sound, it's drony, distorted, hypnotic, yes, it sounds like real songs. I like the vocals too, even tho it's a bit monotonous on the long run.
I would be curious to see that in a live context.

Good work! Smile

Yeah. Kind of hard at first not to get lulled into a comfortable spot with some vocals I thought worked. I found recording them intimidating at first. Eventually experimenting a little bit(i.e. Desert and Delerious).

Thanks man! Appreciate the feedback!

Especially :

indeed!

EDIT:

I structured the cuts to allow it to be played on shuffle for a bit of a different experience by itself or with other shit. I also tried to make it all somewhat self referential, with pieces coming to the surface at different times. TRIED anyway.

pretty freaking cool, man.

i gave it the ol' whirl at work and was quite impressed.

reminded me somehow of early Beck and slightly (very) of some super early Flaming Lips (as on Hit Death to the Future Head). Both things I enjoy.

Hats off!

Oooooo nah it was nice and thick and nasty in the subs hehe. PROPER
The chinchillas were a little agitated but Im subjecting them to it again!
Fuck them they keep biting me anyways.

I dig it man.. I can totally see what Klawful means with the Beck and Flaming Lips, but thats a good thing.. Its like if Beck were to take some fucked up drugs and decide to make something more industrial.. And the melody lines are totally flashing me back to Flaming Lips kinda stuff. Not a ripoff Im saying, but when Matt put it like that it made me go 'Oh yeah!!' hehe.

MORE PLEASE.

bonus points

1. m4a files APPLE OWNS YOU BITCHES!! Very Happy

2. ITS GOT COVER ART EMBEDDED!!

come on its those little things that really get me..
