Songs this weekMake Me Crawl - Mario Gozum aka PillThe New Risk of the Foot Soldier - The LionsRelative - Yesterday's AddictionRelatives song info is here:Lyrically, the song is about love- well, more to the point, breaking up. A relationship has to be collaboration between two willing people, and some women don’t seem to be capable of seeing how good they really have it- “you find sorrow in your treasure”. But, in the end you realize that you are better off moving on- “In the dark, I find the sun”. It was inspired by a close friend of mine who was going through a divorce, in spite of the fact that he completely built his whole life around his wife. So, the song was built around those ideas, and written on an acoustic guitar. After the rough song was “sketched out”, Mike Mitchell, our lead guitarist, recorded some rough guitar takes which were uploaded to the “SendSpace” file sharing site. Jim Tamburini (his real name, by the way) downloaded the .wav files and imported them into his DAW, and put together the drum tracks. He sent back separate .wav files of the kick, snare/hi-hat, toms, and cymbals, which Mike and I re-imported, and then set about the task of recording all of the finished guitar and vocal tracks.
