Brown Word is in. Used exactly 3 instruments + percussion, thought I had more but I used 2 guitars on Rear Window, not this song. I did use my dad's old vintage Epiphone so that was a welcome change. Ah well, it's been a befuddling last couple of days and predictably, my song is heavily influenced by current events.
YYYYYeeeeeaaaaahhhhh boy, I tell ya!

Brown Word and the Big Whine has an EP out:

I submitted, also only used three instruments: acoustic guitar, bass, and drums. The standard rock trio. My song is about current events too...I keep eating popsicles!

Pretty happy with my mix right now. Drums a little louder, and all 10 tracks of vocals sounding good.

Jealous. I wanted to have at least eight tracks of vocals but I think we only got six.

The trick is to double track everything!

If only you knew...

The real trick is to get a singer who doesn't feel like they're dying while trying to get at least a single decent take... ;)

Dude. You always sound straight up pro. You could literally be dying and you'd still knock out a fantastic track. Like, all those vocals AND you played guitar... you're awesome. Please appreciate your awesomes the way I appreciate your awesomes.

There's some sort of Song Fight Zombies joke here that I can't quite put my finger on...

Heh... Thanks. No, it wasn't anything bad... I just thought that "The trick is to double track everything!" was funny because of the situation. ;)
