Frenetic Stereoear Here’s the thirteenth (and final!) song from the album “Frenetic Stereoear” titled “Medium Rare Fidelity.”

This is just a simple mellow song with bass and guitar. It’s totally boring, but I wanted to try something without drums, which also means I played all the instruments on the track.

The background sound in this song is me taking the steps down to the basement, which is not where I recorded this, but the steps are old and wooden, and look like they could collapse at any moment. As for the name, this is definitely not “high fidelity,” though I do like the movie, but it’s a bit more “Medium Fidelity” or “Medium Rare Fidelity” as it were… (Yes, I like word play.)

On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being awesome) I’ll give this song a 6… only because it’s different from all the other songs.

Frenetic Stereoear Here’s the twelfth song from the album “Frenetic Stereoear” titled “Cinder Bloc Party.”

Phaser + Wah + Fuzz + Echo… yeah, I like this guitar sound. The background audio is from the May 2007 Web414 Meeting. I had it handy on my hard drive, and needed some background noise, it fit the bill. I also like the cymbals (there’s a bunch of them) and the slow pace of the song, but the standout, for me, is the guitar.

The name? I dunno, I was thinking of “Cinder Block to the Head” (since I never got to use “C-stand to the Head”) and decided on “Cinder Bloc Party” instead. (I guess there is a band called Bloc Party but I’ve never heard of them.)

On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being awesome) I’ll give this song a 7. I dig it.

Frenetic Stereoear Here’s the eleventh song from the album “Frenetic Stereoear” titled “Operation Bomb Squad Assassins.”

This is probably my favorite song on the entire album. With this one I feel like it’s a complete song, and don’t listen to it thinking “It needs more!” so I’m actually happy. I even used it in a video I put out recently. As to the name? I don’t know where I came up with it, but I really like the sound of it.

I think at this point in the recording I hit a good groove, which is a shame, because we’re almost done… This also tells me I should start recording in January so by the time February rolls around I’ll be ready to track some good stuff.

On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being awesome) I’ll give this song a 9. Best song on the album!

Frenetic Stereoear Here’s the tenth song from the album “Frenetic Stereoear” titled “Fituation Normal.”

Fituation Normal has bass, some weird guitar sound/effects (but no real guitar playing) and very minimal drums… It’s slow, eerie, and atmospheric.

On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being awesome) I’ll give this song a 5. It’s really one of those things I think would work as an intro to a longer song… eventually.

Frenetic Stereoear Here’s the ninth song from the album “Frenetic Stereoear” titled “My Three Guns.”

This song is terrible. Really. Maybe not. I don’t really like it that much. I went back into it to re-work things once, and improved it slightly, but right now I really don’t care for it. It uses Club Dance Beat 050, mixed with fast loud guitars, which I thought would be a weird/funny juxtaposing of things. I guess it is. Maybe.

I actually do like the guitar sound used, and maybe the last 1/3rd of the song. I think it’s called “My Three Guns” because it has 3 guitar tracks.

On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being awesome) I’ll give this song a 3½. Ugh…
