Backseat Garden

By miraclemiles on January 26, 2020 9:57 pm

This is an edit and arrangement of a November 2019 session with Creatures Once collaborator AM Faulks. I laid down drums, chords, percs, bass, vocals on the Push, he did guitar and clavinet leads. I did a little slicing and resampling, but everything here is what we improvised in that session. Title are from some of the words I made up - something about gardens, backseats, and ice cream. Could be the beginning of an interesting story.

Very abstract, the distant vocals sound very eerie to me. I'd be very curious to see where this story goes.

It's funky and trippy at the same time.  Trunky?  Kind of fits with the backseat theme.  At least the part behind the backseat.  At any rate, I dig it!

You guys have mad improvisational skills I must say, well done! There's a great chemistry at work here from the sound of it smile Love the instruments choice, they all get to shine too! The bass sound is heart

Thanks so much, appreciate hearing that a lot. I'm always not too sure about instruments and some of the sounds ... too many dang choices. I changed up bass at some point too. I heard a Timbaland production, Missy Elliot I can't stand the Rain ... and made me want to try and get bass like that. Not sure I did at all, but it made me go tweak it at least. Glad you liked!

Thank you for listening! I hadn't thought about eerie, but I do hear that now for sure. The story continues, on and on!

Funky and trippy seem to be in my wheel house, so hell yes, Trunky! Genius. Thanks much.

Thank you very much! Abstract jams seem to happen a lot with us. I love that guitar too, he put down like 100 bars or more, I feel like there's some more gold in there to grab for some future beats too. Cheers.

Thank you! Yep, processed my voice on Kaoss pad, autotuned in izotope vocal synth plugin. Glad you liked the melody, it stuck out with me too so wanted to use it in the track. I love Binkbeats, amazing skills!

I love how your tracks always have that live feel and you can feel the energy in the music, great collaboration! Oh and great title

Many thanks! That is great to hear. Glad some of the live energy can come through. It's more work to capture these sessions and edit / pull out some good bits, but probably worth it in the end.

only now had time to listen ...
sounds super organic. It slightly weirds me out, this track. But in a good way. Like the Japanese artist Cornelius sometimes does ... It's pop, but not as we know it ...
And the track keeps on changing ...
Kinda blows me away. Great stuff man

This track is cool. I love the guitarparts, the abstract chops and the beat, which is so laid-back. Well done, boys.

Wow, thanks so much. This is an awesome comment! I like Cornelius. I'm good with some weirding out if not too off-putting, interesting to hear that was reaction. With pop music being all around, I'm sure bits and sensibilities seep into my creative working mind, and there's no doubt some pop I like. Thanks again!

Much appreciated! Was a laid back start to a good little session. I always love his guitar work too, its interesting its not his first instrument (drummer) but he's learned so much on many instruments. He's not confident enough to try playing stuff live, but we track some great recordings for sure.

Really cool laid back beat but especially enjoy when the keyboard comes in.  The vocals sound suhweet too with those fx.  Excellent guitar solo!
