AAD-28: It involves liquefaction (04 Jul 2016 at 10:14)
Good day fine listener! I have created a new album, and It involves liquefaction!

That image is kind of how my ears feel right now. This one was difficult for me, and I'm assessed a penalty of at least -1,000 POINTS for Album-a-Day rules violations, including a 6 hour bike ride in the middle of day 2, and probably exceeding 24 total hours of work. But I like don't think the rules apply to me man.

Some things that made this one hard: I'm definitely out of practice playing the guitar, writing guitar songs, and recording. Most of the guitar songs were a slog and sound derivative to me, and hurt my guitar fingers. I wrote a lot of techno songs, which came out more easily, but the default tempo has increased from 100 to 120 BPM, and I think I get more readily bored with repetition, and so I'd often find myself spending a solid hour at the piano roll and then find that the song is only 1 minute long. But I finished, and there are some parts I like!

Some songs of note: Business Logics is my attempt to write jazz (ha ha). Dude ascending a staircase was the only guitar one that came out Metamucil-style. Bromides was my absurd attempt to cram the zillions of suggestions for song ideas and titles on Facebook into one song. Song about owls for children is by request for my nieces and nephew, and I'm trying to channel TMBG here, but obviously failing. You can mix and match or listen to the whole thing; it's only 20 minutes.

Note that #28 makes this a whole month of solo AADs, if that month is February and it's not a leap year.

Here is a zip file with all songs.

Awesome!! Bromides and What a waste are both really great. Hope we don't have to wait another 5 years for the next one :P

BTW, whatever happened to the bass that was on previous AADs? The more-fully-arranged "rock" songs on Pro se ick and Method etc were awesome.

Thanks, and I hope so too!

I prefer the bass and occasional tambourine too... it's just a matter of not being set up in my new place yet. This one was taking way too long to record, and so I went stripped-down on the technical tracks. Next time. :)
