Back again for my 14th year (dust in the wind etc). Last year was pretty quiet on the music front for me (I did Nur Ein and both Spintunes but that was about it). However, I've started the new year with a bang by forming a band, something I haven't done in years. We've barely started playing together but we've already got a winning name - Strobe Light Fist Fight. Now I just need to write some songs to play.

I've always found programming drums utterly tedious, so I've acquired an electronic drumkit to play with. I'm hoping this will make it easier to lay down drums quickly (I should however point out that I can barely play the drums (though I am a very experienced air drummer)).

I've also got a new Moog Theremini (a theremin that also makes various Moog sounds) to play with, so expect some analog nonsense from that.

Been listening to: Bill Ryder-Jones, Me Lost Me, Young Fathers, miu zyu, Anna B Savage, Bastien Keb and Mandy, Indiana.

Thanks for listening to "Alberta On my Mind". I love the Indie sound of "I Only ever wanted to be by your side". The beat is refreshing. the harmonies suttle. Well mixed!

Hey @sailingmagpie! Thanks for reaching out! Planning on it. Had a huge live-stream event I spent maybe 40 hours prepping for which happened last night and just finishing editing and uploading, so hopefully now I can focus on FAWM. Kind of snuck up on me, though I've been looking forward to it.
