Check Out Our Album!
My band is, at long last, releasing our debut album. It was thrown together over an intense 12 hours total of recording time (mostly live takes) on a crazy low budget. Definitely a cool, raw indie LP.
We're quite proud of it. Just wanted to share it with you guys, and get some feedback.
I highly recommend tracks 2, 4 and 7. :p
If you dig what you hear, like us on facebook and spread the word among your friends.

Here's the album:
Thanks guys! Hope you enjoy it.
I'll give it a listen tonight when I get home, that said, chill out my friend, it's only been 3 hours since your OP.
Oops. Thought it'd been longer. Lol.
I dig it man, great bass tone. I really liked the music a lot but I wasn't really a fan of the vocals or the lyrics. Sounds good though, what kind of rig were you using?
For tracks 2-7 I was playing a Squier VM 70's Jazz with mostly dead Rotosounds. On track 1 I used a Rickenbacker clone with stock strings.
I used a pick on tracks 4, 6 and 7, fingers on everything else.
For every track I played through a GK Backline 110 with contour switch engaged, with emphasis on the treble and mid frequencies in the EQ.
It also might be worth mentioning that I didn't mic my amp. I DI'd into the board for the whole album.
Listened through a few tracks. Dig it -- pretty groovy stuff. The band is tight.
Bit too Jesusy for me, but that's almost okay because it sounds pretty Black Sabbathy when he's not singing.
Are those, steel drums?!
No, Timbale and cowbell. But you were close.
And I'm actually the one singing. Lol.
If you like the heavy, Sabbath-ish stuff, go to track 4.
It starts out like Pink Floyd, and the rest of the song is probably our heaviest playing on the LP.
Cool sounding, nice job and I like your vocals, I can understand your lyrics.
Thank you. Clarity is definitely one of the goals. X)
I imagined it was Geddy singing in a lower register esp with the bass tones and lines you were playing! (I mean that as a compliment)
Do you sing and play the songs the same way live?
and Yep. And I do the synth as well.
The music is laking any real soul or groove, the vocals are poor and the religious lyrics make me want to burn down a few churches.
Well that escalated quickly. XD
I dig the bands sound! Great tones including the bass tone and the recordings feel very energetic. You will always be able to listen back to this record and be transported back to this time in your life. I can tell by your post that you guys are stoked on your record...so kudos man!! It feels great to finish a record you are stoked on so listen to the crap out of it and be proud that you made some music you are proud of!
I believe music is all about expression, and your singer should sing whatever he feels like singing. I'm not a religious or spiritual man, but I think it takes guts to lay it on the line like your singer does. It's not something everyone will feel a connection to, but do what you feel and the audience will come. I thought some of the intro's were a little gratuitously long, but again...that's my taste...play whatever you like...there are no rules.
Thank you very much. I appreciate the encouragement!
Another day, another bump.
I like it. Lyrics and music.
