Song: Snack Saw of Redemption

Frenetic Stereoear Here’s the third song from the album “Frenetic Stereoear” titled “Snack Saw of Redemption.”

I took a jazz beat and slowed it down, and by now you can probably tell I like the phaser pedal. This song managed to go on for 2 and a half minutes, though I’m not convinced it should… The title came about because you can hear a hacksaw in the song, and I originally came up with “Hacksaw of Redemption” not really knowing what it meant, but liking the sound of it, but then I changed “hacksaw” to “Snack Saw” in thinking about the “Shawshank Redemption” and saws, in cakes, and bars (and barres) and that’s what happened. Yeah, that’s how it works.

On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being awesome) I’ll give this song a 6. The offbeatness of it, a bit of variance from the bass, and the phaser on the guitar, just sort of work for me…

Song: Nuthin’ but an 8-bit Thief

Frenetic Stereoear Here’s the second song from the album “Frenetic Stereoear” titled “Song: Nuthin’ but an 8-bit Thief.”

The beginning and end of this song feature some tone generation done with an Arduino. I was hoping to build an Atari Punk Console in February, but really didn’t have time for it… but I did do a bit of playing around with the Arduino’s tone library. And yes, I completely forgot to incorporate the Easy Button in any song!

At some point this song went a little math rock, though poorly done. I admire the stuff that Don Caballero does, but hell if I can pull it off.

The title? It’s an ode to the bleep-bloop 8-bit style sound that the Arduino generated. On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being awesome) I’ll give this song a 4. It’s really just some weird noise with a beat. This one is also short. After I recorded this, I briefly considered making the entire album up of songs that were under 1 minute each. In the end, I didn’t do that.

Song: Pancakes for Brains

Frenetic Stereoear Here’s the first song from the album “Frenetic Stereoear” titled “Pancakes for Brains.”

This is the first song I recorded, and I really wished I had spent some time before February 1st getting the sound down and getting used to playing guitar again, since I’ve done nothing but some basic noodling here and there for the past few months.

The background sound is from the recording I did of Milwaukee Traffic at Night, and the drums are from Brian P. Hogan. (Thanks Brian!)

I think it’s called “Pancakes for Brains” because I had pancakes on the day I mixed and mastered this song. On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being awesome) I’ll give this song a 6. I sort of like the sound, but it’s poorly written and very short. That’s OK, we’ve got plenty more to come…
