It might be an North Eastern US thing, but when the temperature drops I get into hustle mode. Anytime the weather changes, I also get creatively stimulated. That said, I've been in the studio a ton lately, and decided to drop a new video from my upcoming album 760 Eldert Lane. So far, I've handled all of the production, mixing, videos, and artwork, so I'm learning a lot more about all of the processes as I go on. I keep thinking the album is done, then I discover a new mixing trick via Dubspot, or rediscover a microphone from 5 years ago and boom, I'm reworking everything,
The song "Fallacy of Fellow Man" started out after watching one of my favorite Twilight Zone episodes, "The Monsters are Due on Maple Street". You know, the one where a super happy, white picket fence neighborhood goes batshit crazy when all of their gadgets and machines stop working? I could only imagine the horrors we'd see if the net and cell phones just stopped working tomorrow.... I digress. The episode, like so many others made me think about how often a person's true character gets shaken up by the desperate conditions around them. The most level headed, morally sound individuals get caught up in the dissonance of the fallacies of their fellow man, and glitch out.
I took a walk around Bed-Stuy playing some Miles to clear the mind a bit, then set up at home to write a song commenting on the conditions surrounding Brooklyn that create such aberrations. I hope you dig it
