Anecdotes #5 – September 27, 2020 – The Queenmaker

I put out this song ‘The Queenmaker’ a few years ago, but was never happy with the recording. It’s a bit amateur, you know? Recorded a new version that didn’t make the cut for Bunkerland, since it was a bit on the pop side.

Today I replaced all the digital-recorded guitars with versions recorded through my new amp, then remixed the vocals and holy shit – it’s probably, soundwise, the best thing I’ve ever done. The song is catchy as hell – that’s apparent in the old version – but was never gonna be a ‘hit’ recorded that way.

Pretty stoked with how this new version’s come out…

Also did a bit more mixing on ‘Perimeter’. The drums were just too clean in yesterday’s mix, so listened to the Smashing Pumpkins’ ‘Quiet’ then got to work.
