New Track Actually Finished

Holy bloody hell, I’ve only gone and finished the bugger.

That’s right: Hessian, the first track from what will, at this pace, be next year’s EP, has been finished off today. Let me sleep on it and hear it back, so I can make any tweaks if I need to, and then I’ll post the single mix right here for you all to enjoy.

Hessian

The first track of the next EP has had all its guitar parts written and arranged. Now, I have to go back and do each of the guitars (3) in one take each. Else I feel like it’s cheating. Then figure out the drums, write a bassline, and go wholly overboard with the MIDI instruments, because I’ve fallen hopelessly in love with Symphonic Black. The vocals, on a positive note, are happily writing themselves.

I’ll post it when I’ve got a single mix. The mix will inevitably change for the EP.

Here it goes again…

WrappedinaSheet.co.uk

Alright, alright. The plan was for me to not shell out any cash on this project. Unfortunately, the .co.cc extension is no longer being listed by Google due to its associations with malware (thanks to W Scott for the heads up on that one – my day job is getting stuff to rank for Google, and I had no idea) but fortunately, the cash I’ve been generously given for downloads just about covered two years’ worth of .co.uk registration. So, WrappedinaSheet.co.uk now exists!

I’ve been moving house, so making music hasn’t been happening these last few days, and I don’t think will be for a while. Still, the album’s only seven weeks old. Give me a bloody chance, will you?

All you have to do is download the thing tonight, and if you like, tell me how shite it is and how I’ve wasted my time.

Harshest Winter on YouTube and in Videos Section

If I’m honest, all I need to do is point your attention towards the title. Have a look at the Videos page on this site or head over to youtube.com/user/wrappedinasheet for a look.

Weirdly enough, the video it’s linked to on the YouTube sidebar is “Bad Meets Evil” by Eminem. Pretty good song, and when I was into rap I listened to the Slim Shady LP a lot. It’s because the first line contains the lyric “I don’t speak, I float in the air Wrapped in a Sheet.” I forgot about that line – it wasn’t what inspired the name, BioShock takes that honour. But how the hell did YouTube know what the lyrics are?

Clever YouTube.
