Stronger Than I Am

September 10th, 2009 by


Sorry I didn’t get a song in last week – I was on vacation back home and unfortunately did not have access to any recording equipment. Hopefully in the future my setup can be a bit more portable.

In any event, I ended up adding some distorted guitars to this one. And then I added more. And here I am now, right?

Rob’s out of town this week, so this is just me on this one.

    Like the melody, but just can’t hear the vocals.

    I enjoy the layering on this one – the drum part is awkward, but you make it work for the song. I thought there were keyboard parts on it, and then I slowly figured out how made that with more guitars.

    I love it! I sort of dig the dirty mix you did there.

    This is a very colorful mix. The almost mechanical rhythm track goes well with the shoegazer-ish layers of thick guitars. Bravo for production on this one.

    Is that a second vocal track tucked in there that I hear?

    Me likes!

    Yes – it’s sung in octaves throughout.
