10. 2018 Breakdown

I’ve been dreading this album so much. I always remember it as the “album with no hits”, in a sense. “Shanty For A Better Tomorrow” isn’t terrible but nothing really stands out in this mix. I may have tuned my guitar down to B standard for this, hence why it’s a muddy mess. “Single Pale […]

9. 2018 Breakup

Back to college I go. I decided to use Cakewalk this semester, and didn’t try to use Musical Typing on my computer to do “fake drums”. As a result, the end of 2018 isn’t as universally bad as the beginning of 2018. “Memory Lane Bombing” is a good opener. Good riff to open the whole […]

8. 2018 Summer

Two outtakes from Tear The Night Apart. I think I probably could have kept “In The Golden Amazon” on the album itself, it wouldn’t have been out of place next to the other fairly repetitive tracks. For what it’s worth, the song revolves a drum improv influenced by the stylings of one Terry Chambers, who […]

7. 2018 Spring

I’d put out outtakes before but I had a lot of songs gathering dust and I wanted to put some of them out. The Bandcamp liner notes actually include recording dates for all 12 songs, which was smart of me to do. “Under The Flickering Light (Demo)” was recorded the night I started Stereo Butterfly, […]

6. 2018 Winter

Immediately, something’s different. I’m using my amp again. I’m using real drums (from here on out, assume live drums are me playing with Signal Valley‘s kit, thanks Signal). Anyway, “Paramount” is interesting because it’s a great instrumental, but it really could have begged for vocals. More on that in 2019. “Decision Drop” uses the Zoom […]

5. 2017 Fall

This is where eras start to pack more punch. As you can see, there are 9 releases here. Because I was now a college student and not a high school student, eras were now mostly defined by my semesters. Curiously, all of the titles came first. The name “Sugar” came to me in a dream. […]

4. 2017 Grad Summer

First, this title is a lie. This and Harvest were recorded and released before I graduated high school. I could have sworn tracks 2 and 3 were switched. Anyway, this is the only prood I have of what Harvest was supposed to be. It was supposed to be, like Sterile, a double album with a […]

3. 2017 Burst

I recorded a lot of songs in about 30 days. These six EPs represent the majority of what was recorded. A few songs ended up on YouTube instead. I tend to not like this EP at all but I like “Undecided Class of 2021”. “Virgin Mary Elizabeth” has a good idea in it but the […]

2. 2017 Pre-Burst

Sterile was supposed to be a double album. It wasn’t. Most of it was recorded in 2016, but a few stragglers (like “To Living Lost”) were recorded in 2017. This whole album feels like a massive step backwards from Afternoon in that it reflects the Third Seed project, where I used a 4-track and recorded […]
