I've begun work on a new collaboration with Beam Me Up (aka Scott Carr, Glenside, PA), remixing his recent track called Let It Beep and Beep. I'm having a lot of fun with it because it's a very fun track. Scott's personality always shines through his music and this one bubbles with it. I hope I can extract something out of it and make something new. As you can see from the post picture here, I've got a lot of plugins percolating, pulling Mouth out of the quiver again; this time shaping the bass undergrowth.
Find out more about Scott at his Tapehiss Recordings website.

I usually check in on FAWM each year. In 2018 I made it through a couple songs and supported several folks with comments. I've been doing the same this year and managed to start working on a new track yesterday that is showing some promise. Here's what I've got so far:
I'm trying a few things I haven't done before. As usual, I'm playing everything live, track by track. The horn section is from Native Instruments Session Horns package. It's the full section with some glide added. I love me some horns and like the little wonkiness here. It might be a bit overboard, but what the what. The electric piano is also from Native Instruments' Kontakt catalog, the Scarbee Vintage Keys. And the bass is a Rickenbacker sample (also from Native Instruments) played on the keys.
I think I'll add either an electric guitar solo or some kind of synth solo, along with vocals. I haven't written the lyric yet. I have no idea what the song's going to be about this time; or even the melody. The song began on acoustic guitar yesterday.
I'm hoping it turns out well.

Analytics show a steady upsurge in traffic for indienewswatch.com. Today I worked on the menu. I deleted the business menu. I don't think that approach is the one I will take with this website. I believe in the independent news mission and want to foster a grass roots independent news community of citizen reporters on the ground and in the field.
I also did some work to add websites to the directory and programmed the menu to find those successfully, streamlining the search code so we can have a healthy directory of independent news websites to go with our video channel directory.
