Product notities

These are the artist's comments for each song on the album: Adventures- I'm especially happy with the chimes and cello parts that come in at 1:45. All Along- I really like the synth flare at 1:40, the pizzicato at 1:59, and that soft base part that follows it. I'm also really happy with how big 2:06 sounds. In the future I want to have more quiet break-down parts that lead into big finales. And the double synth parts at 2:10 and 2:16 sound awesome! Fight for Your Friends- my favorite parts: 0:13 big hit with that distortion-synth! Yes! 0:20 right-panned muted-guitar hitting (3) and-a 4 and. 0:34 those bells (I feel like I might be on the track of mentioning every part in the song. Whatever.) 1:09 the lead guitar part (R-pan) and the eighth-note synth part that alternates from high to low octives (that sort of synth part is used a lot (like the beginning of 'Cold Dust Girl' by Hey Champ) but it will always sound cool. 1:36 the high and low vocals of 'fight for our friends'. This was an accident at first- I meant to record the entire chorus at the lower octive because I would kill my voice otherwise but on one of the vocal takes I forgot to drop down an octive and then did it too late (after the first 'fight for our friends' as you can hear) but now I'm happy with it. I was pleasantly surprised with how a lot of mistakes turned out when recording this album, which makes me think that maybe a good way to get new ideas is to record a song normally and then add weird effects to different instruments, mess up the timing of riffs, and add random software instrument notes everywhere just to see what comes of it. 2:11 the lyrics 'dead blood (!) nourishes the flowers' is funny. I co-wrote this song with my friend Matt Mobily and it's probably so good because we didn't want to write something serious. Whenever a friend and I would try to write a serious song together we would quickly lose momentum. I'm not sure why but I think it's been because it's hard to find a topic that you're both excited about for the same reasons and each person is more likely to accept a lame line from the other person if it's on a close-to-home topic. Actually, wait! No, this is it: it's easier to get on the same page with someone with humor because compatibility of humor is the biggest reason why I'm (everybody in the world(??!!) is) friends with somebody to begin with. Yes! That's it. I Know My God is Watching- This song's about having a crush that I wrote in high school. Although this song is about how silly crushes are, I still had them (and couldn't shake them) well after realizing that. So realizations don't always help. I Will Remember- I especially like the backup vocal part at 4:00 and the piano part at 5:16. I'll Never Know- I really like the piano part that starts at 1:17 and the dreamy bells at the end. I have a tendency to add too many instruments so I'm happy that I restrained myself with this recording. In the Game- This is about 'The Game' by Neil Strauss, which is about picking up women and what makes people attractive in general. The biggest thing I've gotten from it is the knowledge that pining for someone is NOT attractive, which has helped me avoid having crushes. And the idea that confidence is universally attractive made sense when I reflected on why I was ever attracted to someone. Man, that idea is huge and would've been ten times bigger if I knew it since junior high. Oh well, shouldn't dwell on the past. My favorite parts: 1:30 the cutout and the big backup vocal part after it. 2:34 double vocals! 2:42 how the piano part changes 2:55 how the vocal parts fit together and the abrupt ending is really exciting. Just What I'm Worth- I especially like the guitar riff at 1:25 and the decending notes at the end of the synth part at 1:31. Love Scripts- This is my favorite song to sing. Next is Fight for Your Friends, then Run Drunk, then probably Snow Dogs (because of the middle part) The melody makes it easy for me to belt out. And falsetto is fun. My favorite parts: 0:14 descending synth cords 0:16 the bass part 1:36 synth part's up an octive! I hope it doesn't ruin it for people to know that that's all I added right there. 2:16 pizzicato part 2:32 the note that I hit on the second part of 'rhyme' sounds sort of dissonant and cool. One More- I especially like the one note quarter notes on the piano at 1:44 and the piano part after that to the end. I also like how the melody builds from 1:48 to 2:26. And the synth violin part at 2:44. Run Drunk- I like that the vibraphone part is more interesting and starts earlier at 1:31 than it does the first time around (at 0:42). And the bell part at 1:35 on is exciting. Snow Dogs- The middle part is really fun to sing and I like the vocal part sounds on 'boat' at 1:46. Speed Read and Lucid Dream- I like how bumping the second half of the verse-piano part up an octive makes that part sound really pretty (I also did the same sort if thing in 'Love Scripts'. I just remembered that that's what Ben Folds does at end of the live version of Emaline. Yea, that sounds good. Sweetly Humor Myself- I like the double synth that comes in at the chorus, the backup vocals at 2:15, and I really like the building synth part at 2:30. Love Scripts (Colonel Panic Remix) Colonel Panic is my friend Pete Snyder. Someone once thought that this a woman singing but it's just me up an octive. Which was jarring (in a good way) when I first heard it. My favorite parts: the lead synth part in the beginning. How the chorus sounds dissonant and sparse, which is cool by itself but also makes the fullness of the second verse part stand out more in comparison. 2:03 that the breakdown part is bare-boned and how my voice was processed so it sounds choppy. Something I'm trying to do more often now is give instrument parts their own space so my songs don't sound too busy and this remix does that really well partly by cutting out instruments completely. For instance, I would have the tendency to leave in a full drum part, bass part, and probably violins at 2:17 but Pete just leave the vocals and that base synth thing by themselves and it sounds sweet. 2:38- that awesome lead synth part comes back and is given the space it deserves! Yes! 2:56- the progressively shorter vocal-splitting... and then it leads into 3:06! Also, Pete pitch-shifted the vocal part at 3:21 so that 'cool' is cut up to be 'coo-oo-oo-oo-ool.' You have to listen for it but that part's good, too.
