I like the waltzy feel of the beat, would sound great with a good solid drum track. the reverb on the vox works well. catchy, good job.

Thanks! I haven't thought about this song in a long time; maybe I could re-visit it at some point. Hmph.

Here's some concept instrumentation I made up for the band a couple months ago; some revisions have been made but I still like the original idea.

Another concept I made about a week before that last one, haven't really revisited it to do anything with it though. Forgive me, the stock drums in this are atrocious and I did nothing to adjust their sound so it really sounds pretty... um.. well, bad.

Also have a fleshed-out concept for Anesthesia coming soon. Instrumentation is done, just need to wait for my mouth to heal so I can throw some vocals on it. If anyone wants an advanced peek at the instrumentation just let me know on Facebook; I'll message it to ya.

--

Currently have a few new lyrical ideas stewing in my head that I'm hoping to turn into songs but we shall see.

Last summer/fall I had started working on some new stuffs. Now that I've got the music room up and running again, I'm ready to keep hammering away at these. This is one that I'm super excited to get back to working on.

Instrumental (no vocals recorded yet) preview of another track. The whole thing will be re-recorded for the EP. This one makes me laugh a bit because I recorded the electric by plugging my pedalboard straight into my interface, no amp. But one thing I was surprised to learn is how clear the delay and reverb turned out this way. I think for adding reverb and delay to guitar tracks in recordings, I'll probably record without those effects and then send the recorded signal back out through those two pedals.
