New Big Ass Music

Hallo, all! I hope the winter isn't wearing you all down. We've had storm after storm here in Halifax, but from what I see on the news, it's nothing like southern Ontario has been getting this season. Keep warm and safe!

I've put two new songs up on the Big Ass Superstar page at onlinemusicnetwork.ca.

Ticket To Spain is a cover of the opening track from Cub's second album Come Out, Come Out. I really like the way the drums turned out.

Buenas Tardes Amigo is a cover of "the Mexican song" from Ween's Chocolate and Cheese. It's my most ambitious production yet. It's more than seven minutes long and features a dramatically building mix of acoustic and electric guitars, drums, and even a string section! It's one of the few times I haven't piled a ton of effects on my singing.

Check it out and enjoy! (And slug me a good rating or review if you feel like it!)

  1. Do you distort your voice or play with the vocals after you record. There's a lot of nasal tone. Is that on purpose. I like it, don't bite my head off ... I'm just asking if it's intentional.

  2. On most of the older stuff, I had a lot of effects on my voice ... I played with tape speed and stuff to raise/lower the pitch by large degrees, and often put distortion on it. I just don't like my singing voice. On the two newest tracks, it's just clear that I have a lousy singing voice. The only processing on the vocals on those two new ones is some compression/limiting, EQ and reverb. And Ticket To Spain has some light pitch correction on it. Otherwise, it's plain me, all nasal and warbly.
