I'm posting a finished track. Look, I didn't even put "finished" in quotation marks! Well except just now when I was referring to it... but you know what I mean.
Of course, giving it a listen three minutes after exporting, limiting, bit-rate converting and mp3 encoding, I can barely keep myself from going back in and twiddling. Surely those drum edits need to be adjusted, right? Fuck it, maybe, but right now I'm going to try my best to serve a higher cause and actually say I completed something. It's freakin' April 26th for God sake! It's about time I got over my phobia of the word "finished." Damn, quotation marks again. Finished.
So anyway, here it is, tentatively titled:
You might recognize it from a clip I posted a while back. Most of what you've already heard remains unchanged, but at nearly seven minutes there's definitely something more to hear.
This track also represents an effort to overcome another personal hangup of mine- coherence. I've always worried that my songs wander too much thematically, structurally, etc. Fuck it! If what comes naturally to me happens to be somewhat amorphous, fine- I'm not Britney Spears (yet). I don't have to appeal to the pop masses. So I'll just try to do what I seem to do when I'm just going, and call it my style. Amazing how hard it's been to accept that!
Oh, and logistically speaking, I've also decided to just "ball up" and post full tracks. Evildoers beware, though- I'm now protected by my mighty Copyright statement at stage-right! Or page-right I guess. You know, over there ----------->. So think twice before you do something nasty with that MP3.
...unless it's nasty in a good way, like "nasty bassline," in which case please send it to me!
Comments and constructive criticism welcome- it's celebratory tea time for me.
