Canned Beans

I needed to pare down so that my stuff didn't sound like a melange of instruments crowded into a closet. I thought, "CAN." This song happened. Then I thought, "Beans." Hence the name of this song. Minimalist happy grüverock.

This cheers me right up. Soundtrack for a scavenger hunt!

This is really cool. The minimalism works well - much more effective than a load of different things happening at once.

Funnily enough, it does kinda sound like it was played in a closet though. How did you record it?

Hell yeah this is a great minimalist groove, with just enough happening to be engaging.

How did you record it?

Bass & Guitar direct line into the iMac, used Garageband to tweak the EQ a bit and add a touch of reverb but no other effects. Drums & glockenspiel Garageband patches, also with minimal reverb. I didn't think of it, but yeah, it does sound like it was recorded in a small bedroom if not a closet.

Thanks for your encouraging words!
