News from the Studio – April

Hello, I’ve been a bit lazy when it comes to getting the EP rolling.  I should have got some serious work done over the weekend but the weather has just been far too nice to be stuck inside. Besides, I’m limited to how much further I can go by the distinct lack of a decent studio vocal microphone and some better software that will hopefully make it sound a lot better.

Of course there are other things I could have been doing too, such as recording all the other parts and getting it all ready for vocals and final mixing but the rays were calling me.  “Dazzle, Dazzle come and let us soak your skin” they cried and I had to obey.  I love the sun and it loves me.

It’s not all been standstill though. I’ve pretty much broke the back of a song I wrote a few years back but never got around to recording.  Quite apt really, it’s called “Home and Sober” and it screams ‘summer drinking song’ – well, at least it does to me.  It’s a bit of a departure from what I was planning on doing but I’ve decided to just go with the flow and not do much planning so I’m just going with it.  I could be criticised for doing far too much thinking and not enough doing in the past so I’m making an effort to change that…

…at least when the sun isn’t out.

Anyway it’s April now and it’s time to set some goals, so here it is; EP to be released by August 2011.  Hold me to it.  Please for the love of god hold me to it because otherwise it will never get done!
