if you’re up late enough you get a cool treat. (i guess you get it tomorrow too)
malcom and i decided it’s finally time to release what we have of the album we were working on last fall-winter
via bandcamp -Malcom Lacey and I recorded these four songs in the fall-winter of 2011. We intended to record a full album in this style but because of my computer failing we had to put the project on hold for a long time. We decided it would be better to release the four songs we did finish as an album of ‘sketches’ rather than not release them at all.
Malcom recorded the vocals for these songs, as well as a lot of the instruments and synths, while I handled the production aspect mostly, contributing guitars, (some) pianos, pads, bass, (some) synths and most of the drums. We shared a lot of the mixing duties as well.
The cover art is also by me, and is made of four photos I’ve taken (and subsequently re-printed and scanned again to achieve a textured effect.)

Thank you for listening <3click through to grab it for free (i have 1200 downloads right now and i believe malcom has something like 2000 when he puts it up on his bandcamp)

Odds are if you pay any attention to this blog or any other music blog like this, you’re familiar with the work of Sam Ray (Ricky Eat Acid, Teen Suicide, Mad Dads). Sam is one of the most prolific musicians in this D.I.Y. era. In the past two years he’s managed to put out thirteen releases under four projects, each one carrying its own story. But not only is he one hell of a musician, he’s also one hell of a guy and someone I consider a friend. So I thought I’d ask him (officially) a few quick/basic questions about his musical endeavors.
Sam did an amazing remix of my track “When’d You Find Me?” I hope you’ll download it for yourselves. It’s ugh…
