Not an album – three ep’s

Ok, so here’s the deal. I’ve been working on and off on material for a record the past couple of years. And I have around 15-20 finished songs to compile, and putting the pieces together to make a coherent collection of tracks has turned into a logistic nightmare, and I’m growing tired of the songs in the process – not a good sign. I have a lot of new ideas and a clear vision of the sound I’m going for with some brand new material and I want to put my energy where it matters, that is, in the process of creation. So I’m going to give the current songs a final mastering and spread them out on three ep’s and put them up on Bandcamp and Spotify, maybe iTunes, within the next couple of months without making a big fuzz out of it and that will be it, time to move on. The songs are good, the recordings are good, I just don’t want to spend any more time on them, they’re already behind me. Life is short and my attention span is even shorter. My focus is more intense than it was ten years ago and I want to be able to move with ideas faster.
– Stay tuned.

The light pours out of me – strange encounters

The clock at my local metro station acted out yesterday; for just a second my perception of reality was warped until I realised the clock was at fault, not me. I was reminded of the brilliant lyrics to “The Light Pours Out Of Me” by Magazine:

“Time flies, time crawls,
like an insect up and down the walls,
– the light pours out of me”

The song stuck in my head all day, and I got home, turned on the mic and recorded the 1st verse and chorus. Nothing more, nothing less; just a short vignette of that strange feeling that I had to get out of my system. There you go. Inspiration in all its strange glory.
