Stylist Number Nine (.:. remix)
Once upon a time, I wrote upbeat folk songs on a beautiful Martin guitar that I've since sold. Recently I've been experimenting with digital manipulation as .:. where I've employed things like pitch shifting, reverse reverb and tempo stretching. Now I'm seeing how these two worlds come together. This remix may be more listenable than previous .:. tracks posted here, yet the lyrics combined with the effects strip it of it's sentimentality and make it seem very dangerous. Like that dude from Silence of the Lambs. Doug's website didn't give enough room for the lyrics, which is a bummer. If you clap hard enough maybe I'll post the original song.
A Secret For Now
A demo of a new Old Youth song. The details are a secret. I found it interesting that this acoustic sounding guitar tone came from an EGC SG style guitar with aluminum neck and acrylic body, and the amp is a Sunn Model T through an Acoustic 2x15 bass cab. Versatility.
I Want to Die (Just A Little Bit)
This one took a while to get finished, but here it is. I wrote it because I want to die... but I don't really want to die. So I thought about that for a second and wrote some lyrics, then plugged in my KRAMER bass guitar and adopted the persona of the lead singer of Real Life. Guitars by Brian "in Brooklyn" Goodheart. Drum machine and audio mix by Doug "runs this website" Leinen. Thanks to them this turned out mondo raw and tagging.
