A God for the Lost and Losing

Post by blinddrew »

So, it turns out that on both SoundCloud and Bandcamp if you set a release date in the future and hit publish, it publishes now, not on the release date.

So rather than having a co-ordinated release with all the major streaming services in a fortnight, you, yes you, get a special advance access to the new EP right here!

I think this is called marketing... ;)

Bought, downloaded and imported into iTunes.
Easy integration into iTunes, the artwork appeared automatically and the lyrics too. :thumbup:
As usual, intriguing songs that have arrangements that keep the ear candy cravings at bay!.
iTunes has it as "Unknown Genre" - which seems about right- in a good way!
Nice one Drew, and I see a reputable mastering engineer was used too...

Cubase, guitars.

Thanks Kwackman, very much appreciated. I try and make up for in arrangement / production what I lack in musical theory - and ability! :)
I think the genre is probably best described as Americana but not a lot of places have that as a primary option.
The mastering is definitely the best part of the production. ;)

Good listen, good work. I like your stuff, but that first one - the Wood Heart and Cold Bones tune - I was impressed by that one. You keep coming up with music I never imagined would come out of you. Originally I figured you for an acoustic balladeer with a flair for lyrics and a fondness for gentle tunes, but where you been keeping the pop rocker you channelled on that one? Impressive.

All I can hope for is that my wiring holds up.

Yes, I love that one too!

Thank you.
The rockier side has always been there but it's really only in the last couple of years I've had the tools/techniques to try and do something with it.
