Not How I Feel

By Strayce on June 2, 2018 9:07 am

This was a struggle. This time of year everything is a struggle. I started on the Monday and didn't get this done until Saturday night. I was really happy with it when I was writing it, then hit a wall and had to take a break. I knew I had something decent going on, but every time I came back to it it sounded shit. Finally got out of the rut by changing some of the drum sounds around a bit. Still needs work, but I think at least the main part is good.

On a wider note, winter sads are setting in something fierce. I keep wondering why I bother with this project. Not like I do it for anyone except me, but I still feel like I'm pissing in the wind. I drop a track here and get maybe 1-2 comments, which I do appreciate, but then I look at the feed and see everyone else's shit blowing up with positive feedback and it feels like I'm wasting my time. All my friends have gigs and releases and I'm sitting here bashing shit out not getting anywhere. I never really expected to, but still. It gets to me sometimes, you know?
