Young Hopes for Old Dreams

By alonemusic on November 6, 2016 8:52 pm

howdy all!
Well are we not in for another 'international week of news'? I hope those of you in the US are battering down the hatches and stocking up on hot chocolate.
This track was, again, a rush to the finish, mostly as work(tm) required my presence at a conference and I didn't bring any music making equipment. Alas, upon my return, I set about trying to make a sort of weird post-rock/80's hybrid because I've been watching Black Mirror and episode 4 was just stunning. I don't think I nailed the 80's part, despite using a NES and Game Boy to track much of the synths, as well as my little MIDIVampire's FM-y ness.. I do think I got some decent drums in, and my current favourite ukulele with lots of delay..

Any way enjoy. Those of you in the US vote if that is what you want to do, don't if you don't want to. Hold each other close and realise we are all far more the same than we are different.

Nice and slow; maybe a bit too slow.
