Title: The World As You Know It (demo 03)
Artist: Freddy Sanchez
Album: Acoustic Translations
Date: 2008

When I moved back to Texas from California, Freddy and I went on a musical madness fest. We played every open mic, we jammed the far corners of BCS, we moved magnets and turned them into binary data. He really wanted to record a set of demos to hand out, and I wanted to help out. With the help of his acoustically beautiful (though not sound proof) jam room, and some nice matched mics, we recorded a good few hours worth of material he had just been wanting to get out for a while. This is one of my favorites. More to come, for sure.
Freddy if you can, leave the name of this piece in the comments.

I don’t normally do this but I felt like being different so here is some basic recording off my computer of a Noel Gallagher tune that I have always felt very close to. One take + one backing vocal take on a cheap guitar.
Protip: This is very close to ‘This Guy’s in Love with You’ by Burt Bacharach.

Breaking the mold of ‘saturday tracks’ here with an inspired post.
We had a great time today at the Bell Studios with an all day long concert with lots of local talent. My thanks to Coby and the guys for throwing it together, thanks to the artists who came out to perform, and many special thanks to the folks just stopping by to dig the scene.
While I was mainly on harmonica today, your boy is a bit of a guitar picker too, and even has that singer-songwriter coffeeshop side, though it can’t always make it out past all the vinyl crackle and tape distorted 909’s.
