Just mixed/mastered a couple of songs for a potential comp appearance. One Remora & one new Vlor. They definitely blur the differences between the two projects this time. As the Remora pretty much sounds like Windsor for the Derby on Difference & Repetition which was basically the whole goal of middle era Vlor. Meanwhile the Vlor sounds closer to the Stooges than shoegazer.
I filled out some paperwork to theoretically get paid by some music placement folks. We’ll see if it happens.
It sounds like a teenager in my neighborhood got a new groove box & their parents left town, but maybe I’m just projecting what I want to happen in my life twenty years ago. I might try to record what it sounds like from in my room & see if it’s something useful.
Sent out about 100 messages to guitarists for QRD #42.
If anyone reading this works with making small physical gadgets that use a lot of gears, please contact me about some design help.
Today at the grocery store I saw a copy of Blender with the magazines. I’ve always had a soft spot for the magazine because I remember the first issue having a half page story on Neu! (I believe it was written by Douglas Wolk.) I was kind of excited that they started publishing again. Then I noticed it was dated from over a year ago.
