I was quite stuck for inspiration last night, but I stumbled upon these two chords and that provided enough juice to finish this track.
Any parallels to War On Drugs are completely coincidental and all names-places-personalities are strictly fictional etc.

I feel it came out nicely as a really laid back ambient lounge something something tune, a nice end to this really busy week I have had.

Even though it says 2021.01.21 I still worked on it this week so it counts, right? :)

This was a really really quick track that I made to test out a generative plugin/rack I built for Ableton Live.
I put this thing on the rhodes, guitar and bass tracks, let it play for a while then recorded some drums.
Basically what I want to say is randomness is a great thing for kickstarting your insipiration if you are stuck. I hope you find this tool useful. :)
For this week I have a live set (with all the warts and cringy mistakes left in - I did adjust the gain on 2 tracks but nothing else) that I performed yesterday.

I got lucky and had some time to polish up an old project and this time I took my time with the mix and structure to try and make a "real" song. It ended up being sort of like a melange of 2, because I am not very good at letting go and finishing stuff up early.
I think this could be a lot better, but I was basically working off an already recorded jam without access to the hardware I recorded all the sounds off of, which meant some doubling-transposing and lots of EQs.
Let's see if I hate it a few months from now.. :)
I was working on an old project today it is not finished yet but I better leave it be for a while before I mess all of it up. :)
