Tell Yourself

I suppose this is the equivalent of my last yay new instrument song. Banjo, 'lectric guitar, 'lectric drums, singin.

Oh, and the drums are Hydrogen with a 70s vintage drumkit. I'm recording my home-stuff in Ardour nowadays, which, with JACK, plays very nicely with the drum synth. It does crash randomly, which is not cool, though.

Real drummers also crash randomly, so you're not too bad off.

Although...I wonder if you'd be better off wiping out the drum track altogether and replacing it with foot stomps and a tamborine, or pounding the dining room table and clapping your hands, or something. It's nice and organic but the drums sort of feel counter to that. Maybe if you just re-amped them and made them sound more lo-fi?

You might be right - I have the multitracked stuff still, but I might just re-record it with a different structure for all of it.
