Quick if somewhat epic demo knocked together over the weekend... featuring glockenspiel, mellotron, piano, and baritone twang. Video shenanigans featuring multiple clones over here.
The artist formerly known as unSane here, now posting as Sportswriters because that's my band and to a large extent it grew out of my experiences here. I grew disillusioned with MeFi overall but Music will alway have a piece of my heart. We're now recording an album which I'll start posting soon but in the meantime, I sat on the porch and wrote a murder ballad. Here's a very rough demo. Very much influenced by Chuck Jackson, Aaron Neville and Little Anthony and the Imperials, dripping in vibrato guitar and soul chops. I think the final version will have some spooky strings and backing vocals, and not be as out of time as this!
This has been the worst winter in 20 years where I am. It's still snowing horizontally as I speak. So I wrote a summer song as a big middle finger to the damn cold. [more inside]
