It’s been a year since I registered this domain name on a whim of sorts, congratulations to me: this is by far the longest I’ve ever maintained a blog. I should collect some meta-data about how many posts I make a week, see when I’m busiest, and things like that, for now though, let’s celebrate a year of blogging with the release of a new GlitchFox track, “Summer ’74” which samples Kool & The Gang’s 1974 release “Summer Madness.” It is the first time I’ve worked with sampling somebody else’s music, and with luck, it won’t be the last.
I’m playing guitar again after a painfully long hiatus. My fingers sting from building callus again, and I’m rediscovering my ability to play by ear. Today I improvised along with Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” on my Epiphone Firebird and I was about the happiest I’ve been in recent memory. Since the last time I played guitar I’ve gotten into LCD Soundsystem, so I figure I’ll learn how to play a number of their songs. Also, I have to shine some of the old songs I used to know how to play, like Anamanaguchi’s “Mermaid.” It’s been too long, guitars, and I’m glad you’re back.
In other musical news: Goodness, I’ve never really ever mentioned GlitchFox here before have I? Well hey, I make electronic music under the name GlitchFox and two songs I’ve been sitting on for months are probably close to being ready for public release and whatnot.
