Patio Song - Results From Thursday

I made it to the studio on the 26th like I'd hoped, and I told you I'd share what came of it, so here it is. Take a listen--but keep in mind, this is ground-level, raw, nothing-special stuff. All I got to record (due to delays) was a few tracks and not all of them were exactly keepers. So, this is just two tracks: one vocal, one guitar. Basic, but you'll get the idea. Also: Feel special if you want--this is the first recording of this song to ever be done. Not many have heard this one. So, let me know what you think.

It's been too long...

Going to the studio needs to be a regular thing. But because of school and work it has been... well... I don't know. Probably a week or two since I've recorded. SO I'm going to go to the studio on Thursday (4/26) and at least get a piece of something done. If possible, I will do what I can to share with you the results of my Thursday session--though it will likely be incomplete. But hey, it's still worth getting excited about, right? Eh? We'll see how it goes. Stay tuned!

Subscribe To Marcus Eugene Music

I realized today that I have no easy way for people to follow updates to my blog. So, I added an RSS feed. If you'd like to have your Google, Yahoo, NetVibes, or NewsGator accounts directly connected to Marcus Eugene Music, then choose an option from one of the dropdown menus under "Subsribe To Marcus Eugene Music" on the right-hand side of the blog page. This will allow you to see when I've posted something new without having to check for yourself. Bam: easy peasy.

Lyric Revision

Still working on the new song I posted on the 10th. I've revised the lyrics and the next step will be to add more. And eventually I'll give the music more structure and build. In any case, this is what I've got so far...

If you can feel my beat rock your ribs, my tongue and teeth comb your winter coat,
then hold your head beneath and whisper with the earth stuck in your throat
into my withered ear the sound of your howlin' tears, singing softly,
and I will call the moon to tug your tide and make you high when you think of me.

Once I've got more worked out with the structure of the song and more lyrics, I'll do another rough recording. But, I'm feeling pretty good about these 4 lines--so I wanted to share them.

New Song Experiment

This is a song I'm working on. Recorded at home. It's completely unfinished but I tried a funky pitch-splitting type of recording with two guitars just to see what it would sound like. Not sure if I'll record the final version like this.

Music Page - Free Downloads

Just a quick note: I now have demos available for free download on my Music page courtesy of SoundCloud. So far there are 6 songs up and more will come in the future. Feel free to leave comments/questions/suggestions/critiques--they're only demos, so I appreciate any feedback you have to offer since I plan to re-record most of them. Thanks.
