A 4 Track album.
I have spent the better part of the last 3 - 4 weeks writing and recording this in my room. I have always enjoyed home recordings the most, and when I obtained a free 4 track I started doing some of my own. I have used the inspiration of my recent trip around Europe with my girlfriend Ella for subject matter on most of the songs. Although 'Die Kultur In Berlin' was recorded before I actually went to Berlin, it is not a song about being in Berlin personally. It is the only song that appears that was recorded prior to the last 3 weeks. The rest are things that happen just around the traps. I remember telling someone that I wanted to make a very Australian Urban album that wasn't shitty hip hop..Inner city living in Melbourne. The title of the album I have to give credit for to my beautiful Sydney sages Liam and Lucas. Who's concept of Paradise Living is Living outside of ones means with no money.
This concept translates to the making of this album. I don't have a lot of stuff. Just a Casiotone, shitty guitar , shitty microphone and some free shitty iphone apps. With the help of a delay pedal or two I tried to make the best album with the means that I had. It is always a way to gain some more funds for my upcoming American tour.. The album is free, but I highly encourage you to donate.
