Day 7

It's been a week, and we have all the songs but one tracked. The problem is the untracked song is also the unwritten song..... After this next one is written and tracked, we start overdubs and messing around with keyboards and guitar sounds and noises and ambience, which will be very fun but for now there's an oddly haunting voice that keeps saying "We have to write a song tomorrow. We have to write a song tomorrow." I think tomorrow is going to involve a lot of head scratching and a lot of Brian Eno cards.

We finished up the last of the embryo songs, and it's going to be the last track on the record. Pretty exciting, and the most bizarre drum setup we've done. It involves bells attached to a guitar string on the snare drum, a 5 foot metal cylinder with a mic at the end of it, and some contraption that makes the bass drum look like it's about to give birth. This time we recorded the song at a different tempo and then sped it up a bit to make the note we get through the big cylinder in pitch with the rest of the song. I'm pretty sure these guys did that a few times. Pictures soon.

We have to write a song tomorrow. We have to write a song tomorrow. We have to write a song tomorrow. We have to write a song tomorrow. We have to write a song tomorrow. We have to write a song tomorrow. We have to write a song tomorrow. We have to write a song tomorrow. We have to write a song tomorrow. We have to write a song tomorrow. We have to write a song tomorrow. We have to write a song tomorrow.

I am 90% sure i'm going crazy.
