Recorded mixed and mastered (as always) on Reaper using mostly Reaper plugs or JS. Literally no compressors or EQs other than the ReaOnes. I did a lot of crazy crap that I’m not sure would have been possible or at least not as easily in some other DAW. I got a lot of help and inspiration from this community. Thanks to everybody!

It’s challenging and eclectic, but it does what I want it to do.

Nice... vocal has much of a tom petty tone and approach FWIW and the progression - that's a good thing IMHO.

Sombre mood piece, very well done, the track takes the listener somewhere, the lyrics got me in too, cheers.

Kinda got the Tom Petty feel too, very good.

Says you're from Duluth, do you know where Wadena is? I was born there.

Thanks for the comments y’all.

Seems like everybody clicked through and listened to the one featured track? Funnily enough, that one is literally just a transposed petty song. I even stole a couple of his lyrics. I never would have thought my voice sounded anything like his, but I guess the delivery is kind of there. This is kind of the most generally palatable off the album. Like a way to trick people into listening more, but since it’s way toward the end, it’s kind of also a reward for anybody listening through the whole thing.

The rest of it kind of goes all over the place from weird experimental industrial and shoegazey stuff to things that lean toward no wave and noise rock with some obscure ambient drone thrown in for good measure. I know we’re all busy, but if you could find time to listen to some of the other tracks, I’d love to hear what you think.


@toleolu - Never been to Wadena. Might have driven through once or twice, but I had to google it. I’m actually 5 miles south of Superior, WI (Five Miles From Nowhere Studio), but nobody really wants to admit they live on this side of the bridge.

I actually ran into some people back in the 90's in Oklahoma who were from Wadena. They said the old Air Force base my father was stationed at was closed and converted into a rehab clinic or something.

Story goes that my Mom went into labor while my Dad was temporarily assigned to another base. The doctor that delivered me drove to our house, picked up my Mom and took her to the hospital during a blizzard in March.

Shows how old I am.
