The Last Love Song (Low Expectations)
on: December 25, 2017, 23:00:28
Hi folks

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Finished another song... Really went through the process of trying to learn better production on this one:
Plus, I hope my keyboard skills are showing better lately.

Hey Ash! Your production skills have increased by leaps and bounds since this time last year and this tune is sounding way better than the similar one from a year ago. Your vocals are well placed and clear and there definitely is some strong keyboard work.

You should consider entering this one in the Retro Rework Competition!

I do love your quirky production sensibilities. Definitely a fan.

@Leonard Scaper

Thanks so much! I really appreciate it. I produced this one with live performance in mind. I'm putting a show together called "Junky Brewster" that will be a bit of Beck, a bit of Tom Waits, with a dash of Willy Wonka.

At some point will have to start the process of auditioning bandmates. This is all undiscovered territory for me so it should be interesting.

Here's a keyboard stand I built out of an ironing board for the show:

It will hold the laptop running ableton live, the audio interface, and the midi controller i'll be using to control the show.

@AshBordeaux I like it! The backing track is really quirky and unexpected, but it works! Keyboard playing is good too. Much better than I can do. Good job. Good singing too.

Very smooth vocal @AshBordeaux and yes a quirky backing to it all. Very inventive and original.. Thought in places that the backing was a little too loud vs the vocal but I struggle with that myself so I'm not sure I'd trust my judgement there :)!


Enjoyed this a lot!
