i made an album. its called potpourri flowerbed.
you can download the album here:
there are things that i was going to change. there are things that i wanted to add. there are things that i wanted to make better. the feeling started to change. and time continued on. the changes were not honest to the idea. the additions were not genuine. the better became worse. im allowing this to be what it is. there are new things i feel now. new inspiration. new design. and this era is now over for me and i am heading into a new direction with my creation.
i hope this album brings you joy while you cruise in your car on late nights this spring. if not, the album really wasnt for you in the first place. its very unfriendly. bewildering. and vague.
i have also updated the link of fall d_st, a predecessor ep to potpourri flowerbed. which you may download here, http://falldst.tumblr.com/
You all need to get on this shit right now.
Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington, as Darkside, have released a tremendous remix of St. Vincent’s “Digital Witness.”
As Jackson couldn’t fluently play any instruments, he would sing and beatbox out how he wanted his songs to sound by himself on tape, layering the vocals, harmonies and rhythm before having instrumentalists come in to complete the songs.
One of his engineers Robmix on how Jackson worked: “One morning MJ came in with a new song he had written overnight. We called in a guitar player, and Michael sang every note of every chord to him. “here’s the first chord first note, second note, third note. Here’s the second chord first note, second note, third note”, etc., etc. We then witnessed him giving the most heartfelt and profound vocal performance, live in the control room through an SM57. He would sing us an entire string arrangement, every part. Steve Porcaro once told me he witnessed MJ doing that with the string section in the room. Had it all in his head, harmony and everything. Not just little eight bar loop ideas. he would actually sing the entire arrangement into a micro-cassette recorder complete with stops and fills.”
Happy to finally introduce you to Sleep Sound by Jamie xx!
