I’m the first to admit, I’m not great at blogging. It’s not like I don’t have a lot to say. It’s just that I mostly have a lot to say after someone pisses me off or after a nice walk to work in the morning.
Also, at the moment, I get home from work with burning eyes and I’m not that interested in thinking. Ideally, I should be spending my evenings finishing up the album.
The good news is that we are very nearly there now. All but one (possibly two) of my guest appearances have been recorded. I have a few days of editing and final touches to the mix and then it’s over to Tom for mastering. I have the first three finished tracks back and I like what he’s done so far.
Now I’m off to try and update my iPhone!
I’ve uploaded a couple of songs from the album… they’re on the music page, have a listen. Not at final master stage yet, but we are almost there.
Work on the Sunley album is coming along well.
I met with Tom Bell today and passed along some mixes to be mastered for the preview disc, which should make its way to various media outlets next week.
There is a little bit left to record, a couple of things to rerecord and then the mix, which, since we’re not working on tape, has mostly been done as I’ve gone along.
On another note, I’m very sad that I wasn’t able to make it out to Hana Fahy’s album release last night. My back gave up yesterday arvo, I’m fairly uncomfortable. But, we have a slew of good releases coming out of Dunedin currently… Hana’s, mine, and I believe a Haunted Love release, all in the space of around a month, which is pretty damn nice.
…and welcome to this new Sunley site. Bear with me while I gather my bearings.
Most of my blogging will be in the micro-format, through Twitter. Music and images will appear in the coming days.
We are counting down to the release of the as-yet untitled Sunley album on July 25th at Refuel here in Dunedin, with the possibility of a national tour to follow.
