So I got all my paperwork filled out & turned in for the release on Fluttery. I’m always weird about if contracts should be in writing or not. I think there’ve only been two or three written contracts in Silber history because I feel like either someone is going to do what they say or they’re not & if I’m not willing to sue them then there’s no point in a contract. But I guess there were parts of the contract with Fluttery that I should implement as a form bands fill out when they get a release to me so I don’t have to ask for the stuff each time. Basic info to build a press release, key tracks for radio play, RIYL bands, promotional photos, cover art, etc. Seems obvious I might need that stuff, but sometimes releases get delayed pretty long because of not getting certain things.
I’m thinking about doing a remix kit thing for one of the songs on the new Remora record again. Probably not as big of a production as I made about it for My Brothers Guns & Knives, but just something to generate a little extra interest in things.
Got some more mixing done for the father & son album from me & Andrew. Adjusted vocals in one track & a fade in another. I think it’s done except the artwork & press release, which as stated above can take a while.
I made the promo blurb stickers for the Northern Valentine. I still need to write the tear sheet for distros, but that release is getting fairly ready to go.
I was trying to make some more puzzle boxes out of these multi-colored foam blocks I found at the dollar store. I don’t know what they are made of, but neither wood glue or crazy glue will hold them together. So now I might have a few too many foam blocks. I’ll need to find something to do with them at some point.
So I got an Android smartphone (mainly because it was super cheap). I haven’t switched to it yet, my experiences fiddling with it initially are similar to when I’ve used friends’ smartphones & didn’t like how hard it was to manipulate & I thought the internet was generally unusable with the screen size (especially the Silber site). Anyway, curious if there’s any free music apps I should definitely add & if I really need to add an antivirus. All I really want to be able to do on it is some text editing & maybe record some song ideas in file formats where I can pull the card out of the phone & then work on them in my computer as well.
