Here is a sneak preview for Meatmarket. This is just a premix so don’t start getting all picky on it just yet
It’s 7:30am on a Saturday morning. I resisted the urge to sleep till 11 since I have a friend coming to record some bass tracks this morning and I need time to clear the myriad of coffee cups that litter my desk. And time to write another long overdue blog.
Drum tracking is finished, a couple of songs have all the tracking done however most are still waiting on bass. I am trying to nail a tough guitar solo in one particular song which is giving me grief. I mean I can play it, but I just really want to play it solidly. I just can’t seem to get that magic take. Vocals are done on most of the songs, bar a couple. Robin Liu (Infinite Flying Kick) came in to record some guitar parts and brought with him a new song he’d written for the album. I need to write vocals and other parts for that too. A few tracks have moved on to the mixing stage. I had planned to do the mixing myself but at this point I’m so sick to death of my own music that I really felt I needed to get a pair of outside ears in. In fact I’m getting two pairs of outside ears with David Edtmaier of Miscreant Recordings and Michelle Klaessens from The Rock Factory doing some each.
