about

The second in the Sounds series, lofi recordings done entirely on phones. Putting out several songs on EPs on a regular basis is like oiling your creaky hinges, it's a fun exercise and it's great practice, if nothing else. They're excuses to write lyrics and draw art for the album covers, and it forces one to practice and be thoughtful on a regular basis. There's a whole generation of filmmaker vloggers out there and I don't see why the technological advances shouldn't be used in the realm of music too. That's not bad. Maybe I'll use some of that for the next Sounds.
