I’m not afraid to admit it, I love quiet mellow music. I love trying to create a warm space within a piece that a listener can sink into and relax, day dream, night dream, or cook dinner without being intruded upon by anything brash or completely un expected ( even if there are few sonic treats mixed in.) Due to me having a penchant for this kind of musical vibe and considering I’ve spent the past year really working on playing acoustic guitar, that was the kind of record I made. I’m really proud of it, but feel like I need to make more of 1am Thursday night kind of record.
Not Friday or Saturday night though, then I’d feel like I’d need to make it pretty straight ahead and normal and a dancey perhaps. Thursday is the night the music lovers come out, and around 1 is when the bands really start to push and stretch out for the people still left at the club.
I want to make a record that sounds like that.
Doing some experiments and some thinking, here’s a clip of something that has the kind of vibe I may be going for. Maybe a little less extreme sonically but I still want it to have some teeth used for biting.
