14. 2019 Post Script

After letting Quartered release without using it at all, I set out to make an EP that only used a Casio VL-1. “A Season To Believe In” isn’t offensively bad but it’s just missing something. “Seconds Last” is the only real hit here. That one actually feels like a song. The other two songs just […]

13. 2019 Quartered

Been a long time since I’ve done one of these. It’s been a busy few weeks but I can finally start doing these again without it eating into my time. I had just moved into a campus apartment and wanted to get into a groove, so I recorded this. “Heavy Like The World” is great. […]

“Why are the discography posts taking so long?”

Because I’ve been busy with a big project lately, so I can’t dedicate 3 hours in one go to listen to 2-year-old songs that may or may not hold up. Worry not, the next post will be up this coming week, since there weren’t any this week. Cheers, Benjamin

12. 2019 Trends

This block is named as such because it captures (most of) the sessions for You Are Not Immune To Trends. It started with a warmup in the form of the first Writer’s Block in almost a year and a half. “One Machine, One Long Fight” is a bit overblown, but I’m quite fond of “The […]

11. 2019 Spring

Been a while, hasn’t it? Apologies for taking so long to write this one. 2018 was difficult to listen to again so I needed to take a breather. I knew heading into 2019 that it was time for Hello Whirled to change a little. I knew I wasn’t going to try to record with a […]

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 […]
