The Future Mrs. Olivia Benson (2007)

By Nickmaynard on March 11, 2018 10:46 pm

My new year's resolution for 2018 was "NO NEW PROJECTS". I have a difficult time finishing things I've started and because of this my hard drives are littered with unfinished songs and videos. Over the past two weeks, I've begun systematically sorting through this material, organizing it, deleting things, and finishing projects. This may not be exactly within the rules of Weekly Beats but I'd like to use it as a place to post this material. These songs may have been started years ago but were never finished, never mixed, and never shared before now.
In the late 2000's, I was in a band called Dasha. The band was together for several years but we only played ~30 shows and recorded one album - ( https://dashaband.bandcamp.com ). A few years before that album was released, I attempted to record the songs myself. I had very little "gear" and only 2 or 3 microphones but I tried my best at the time. This attempt did not go well.

Now, 12 years later, I've gone back to those tracks and gave it my best attempt at mixing them. Obviously, I couldn't re-record anything for it. I just made the best of what I had available. I think it came out decently. Since this version isn't going to be released, I decided NOT to trim the mistakes/laughter/flubs off of the tracks since they remind me of what it was like to be in this band, recording this music with my friends, more than a decade ago.
