Here are two tracks from my planned Endless Summer album.
I don’t know if I want to try to monetize it or not. Either way I hope to make more tracks available in the very near future.
The biggest hurtle I have encountered with these songs are the vocals. I originally planned to have none other than a couple spoken word bits, mostly to play around with a vocoder emulator, because it’s fun as fuck. One song I wanted to do full vocals on was the cover of My Own Summer. That is pretty much done, with my own vocals processed through a vocoder. I may redo them all with some other kind of voice synth software, but I’m pretty happy with it right now as is.
At least two songs have come to the point where I strongly feel like they belong. A third is planned lyrically, but I yet to hear the song in my head. I got stuff for the others written that feels right. I’m sure I will need a few more passes to tighten things up but they are about where I want them. There is just one big problem with this, I can’t sing for shit.
Maybe in my younger years. But yeah, I drink and smoke. Smoked? Smoke. While I like playing with the vocoder emulators, I don’t want to do it to hide, I want to do it because it is what is right for whatever I am working on. It is very much of a “I’ll know it when I hear it” process. I often of the belief these songs all already exist somewhere. I just have to fully discover them, like an uncharted island, out there full of brown skinned girls with cold fruity drinks waiting for me.
