Random Blog Post #18

Holy crap! It’s been forever since I last posted here! Well, I have lots of good news. My new album isn’t quite done yet, but it’s super close. So much so that I’m going to start publishing posts to talk about each song individually next week. This post is going to be all weird and disjointed. It’s after midnight, and […]

Robby Reviews 2017

As per usual for these annual year-in-review posts, I won’t be getting into world events or politics or anything actually technically important. This is just me going over my favorite video games, movies, albums, and whatever else I feel like exhibiting. Normally this would have been ready before the beginning of the next year, but I had to experience of […]

My Next Album Will Be Weird

Over the last few months, I’ve been trying to explain on here what steps I’m taking to make a decent album. Not that I listen to my old stuff THAT much, but I probably listen to it more than anyone else. And I’ve come to discover what I don’t like about some of it. Details on all that has been […]

My Next Album Will Be Awesome

The final throes of getting an album put together are upon me! Before I get into specifics, let’s take a look at what I’ve been doing since January of 2015. The second half of 2014 was spent recording Heat Stroke, which released in 2015. I don’t want to spend much time talking about that album right now for two reasons. […]

Jam Session #13

Hey, let’s do another one of these things. There’s a song I started working on last week that I’m super excited about that I could showcase here. But it’s not very far along, and no one would get the joke behind it. So I’m doing this one instead. More than anything, what I’m exhibiting is how a handful of my […]

The Making of the Best Song Ever, “Eff It”

Should I have made this a Random Blog Post? I don’t know. To me, this song is so awesome that it deserves many essays written about it for years to come. “Eff It” began its life in 2013. I’ll admit it now that the guitar riffs were inspired by Wayne Static’s “Assassins of Youth” and maybe a bit of Marilyn […]

Jam Session #12

It’s time for another Jam Session! This one is a little different from the usual.  It might even be less interesting to listen to, but I’ll give you some context behind it. This is a relatively straightforward, gross sounding, synthy section of a song I’m working on. The possibly-interesting tidbit to this is that most of my songs actually start […]

Random Blog Post #15

Hey, I haven’t posted in a while. “Kill the Buffalo” is very close to being done. I’m trying to get it sound really good, namely the drums and guitars. Previously I had mentioned (I think) that I recorded a bunch of guitar tracks. Normally that means the guitars sound big and awesome. But when you use the same guitar with […]

Jam Session #11

Listen to my new drums! I made a short drum loop and played some guitar over it. A new guitar-recording tactic was put into place, and this is the end result. Part of me would love to make more music like this. Like, more metal or whatever. If I could figure out how to vocalize over it, I would definitely […]
