I’ve posted a couple more songs in the Media page. They are unfinished Baby Made Rebel tracks, recorded in 2013 and not quite completed before we went on hiatus. “The Standing” is much further along than “Untitled Single,” as may be apparent from the titles.
“The Standing” started with a drum loop I recorded as part of my Loops Project. Lance heard it and wrote a tune around it. We performed it at a few gigs in Boston in 2013, and I wish the recording had been completed and released, but I guess everything ground to a halt when I left for Germany.
“Untitled Single” was recorded right before I left, so naturally that one got a lot less love. But I love the direction it was headed in and vibe it had going for it, even in so incomplete a form.
Finally, Clinton Degan has been working on mixing the songs we recorded together in late Summer 2013 and emailing us demos, and the songs are sounding incredible. One of them is a tune an old band of his had turned down, saying it was “impossible” to turn into a full-band song. For a group of musicians as talented as they were, it should say something about the complexity of the composition that it was denied on that ground. I’m incredibly proud listening to it, knowing we as a group of musicians achieved something not only impressive, but I think also beautiful, and also proud of Degan for not taking “no” as an answer and guiding the song, along with its companion seven others on this record, to a really impressive product. I can’t wait to be able to post some.
