An album I made in my attic by myself

Hello,

 

My name is Peter and I am 26 years old. I made this record in my attic by myself a while back and would like to share it with you all -  hopefully you will find something that you like. Most of it was inspired by Porcupine Tree / Boards of Canada / Radiohead, but many others as well. The recording setup was about as simple as it gets, with a vast majority of it being recorded through an AT 3035 condenser mic into Logic Pro on my laptop. I originally planned to master it but it never happened, maybe someday. 

 

Anyway - if you like it, it is free to download so please do. It is also on Spotify if you prefer that. Any and all feedback is welcome!

Hi Peter, welcome to WATMM. I think you’ve done a really good job with this :) It’s very professional and well put together - not really my kind of thing if I’m honest, but I can certainly appreciate the work and effort involved - well done!

i don't really listen to stuff like this much any more but in the 90s i would've bought this twice and everyone i know who owned an alice in chains record would've bought it too. that's not a criticism. i think you did a nice job putting this together. i'm probably hearing coincidences with things i've listened to a shit ton of times long ago.  wouldn't say it's derivative or contrived.. i'm guessing it sounds like you. 

 

bandcamp says this was released in 2014. 

 

guessing you're still working on stuff.. saw the few things on your bandcamp from 2016/17 etc..  make more albums.. you're good at it..

Thanks a lot - I have this nostalgic thing for the 90's...most of the similarities you hear are probably spot on. 

 

working on putting the next one together now, hoped to have it out already but want to take my time with it. Definitely a new song in the next few weeks though.

Are you a fan of Devin Townsends work at all?  Some of his solo stuff has a similar vibe, especially the vocal harmonies and synth atmospheres.  Nice work on those.  Very smooth delivery.  Have you shopped this around to any indie prog-centred labels?  Might be worth a shot.  Great intro on Emerge and See.  Are those phaser-effected reversed guitars?  Sounds really cool whatever it is.  Great production all around.

Thanks for the kind words. I'm familiar with Devin Townsend from friends but haven't gotten to really listening to his stuff yet, have a feeling I'll like it though. I've tried sending this along to as many labels as I could through SubmitHub but it doesn't seem to do much good, think I'd be better off the old fashioned way (sending a disc via mail). 

 

As far as the guitar in Emerge, and See - that's exactly what it is, think I used a reverse delay with some phaser. Thanks again for checking it out

Yeah, the label thing is tough if you're not in a band that's already touring around lots and has a reasonably developed following.  It seems most of the ones who do accept unsolicited stuff do prefer digital these days though, which is cool.  Approaching them direct rather than via submit hub would likely increase chances too, with some small personalized thing.  Anyway, I only mention this stuff because I've been trying to figure out a game plan for my own music recently.  It's a tricky thing.

      Hello there!
      As the title describes, a dear friend/producer of mine and I started a record label/community to promote music as a group.
      The idea came to our minds while discussing about the diverse and awesome musicians we find almost by accident, how artists of less popular genres don´t get the exposition we believe they should, and also the fact that we tend to move our music (that´s our perception) as lone wolves.
      So we didn´t think twice, made use of our enthusiasm (and some skills we learned throught the years) and developed an identity, designed a website, launched a blog and started to contact fellow artists too see if there´s people interested in joining us.
      The name of the project is aquí yacen records, the spanish expression to say "here lie the records". 
      You can check our website right here: www.aquiyacen.com  And this is an article with more information: www.aquiyacen.com/post/welcome-to-aqui-yacen We´re looking for artists who like what we´re doing and feel motivated to take part. It is free, no agreement and you would owe us nothing. Our earning and yours is to meet new cool artists and working with them to improve at what we do.
      Thank you for reading!

      Hello watmm.
       
      I have been toiling away with making my own zine, based on electronic musical things. I was looking for zines that talked about techno / idm / noisy musical bollocks but didnt find any, so I decided to start one.
       
      I am fairly happy with how issue 1 has turned out and I have had some positive feedback thus far, but I want to get more copies out to my target audience.... probably you lot.
       
      So the first bunch of people to send me their address will get a copy, regardless of worldwide location yo! PM please and I promise not to share your address with anyone (yada yada data privacy etc...)
       
      Brief synopsis:-

       
      If you are at all interest in my project, I would consider submissions for Issue 2 (to be printed circa October 2016), especially artwork (which is my weak point) but anything else too.

      I think making a singular thread to share my music is more tidy and less intrusive.
      Here's a couple new tracks I'm somewhat proud of:
