Recently my band has been making and writing new songs. And our band leader booked a day at a top end studio in Tokyo. For me it was a new experience. They had Neve, SSL, & Tube tech and a wealth of other outboard gear.
A couple famous Japanese artists have been to this same studio. And I would say they had a nice sound. Of course, they use Protools.
I still use Sonar and Auto tune for fixing vocals.
I could upgrade to another newer version of Sonar. But honestly I`d rather get better physical gear, other than just cheao gimmicks in Software.
Anyways, I had a fun time in the studio. We recorded Vocals and guitars for Slingshotmillion2.
I am also still in the process of remixing Chris Larke`s “Christmas pie”. As well as working for another DJ in Nagoya. They are still in the process of listening to what I worked on.
Other than that, that is what is happening on the musical front for me.
Stay blissed out peeps.
And face the music!!
Today we went out to Yokohama to shoot a PV for one of our songs, called “Lalaland”.
We took it close to world porters, with a camera man.
We got a few good angles and shots.
We took pictures and danced around alot.
We had lots of fun and here is the picture of all who helped out with the making of the music video.
The song is called “Lalaland” and will soon be available for listening & viewing on Youtube.
Yesterday we had some fun in the studio.
We recorded some vocals, and practiced some songs (That we are going to sing on the streets soon) before recording.
It went real well. In fact Im so happy that my sister helped me out with the renewal of this website, that I think I`ll go make mysef a cup of Joe to celebrate.
Yes we will still have this website up, even in the midst of chaos in my life, which has to do with my band. Which takes up alot of time and money.
Like for instance, I have to go practice with my band all the way out in Tokyo. A place I really don`t like.
But have to do it,
Just because I am the lead guitarist, and we will be performing a sole one band live on the 9th of next month.
Other than that, my mic is giving up the ghost. It sputters and makes random noises. I know thats not so good for my studio to blog about that, but, it still works, so I don`t care.
This album was just released today. So it is not available just yet on Amazon, Google play, or Itunes. It will be though if you wait for about a week or so.
Here is our definition and promo for the album on Cd baby:
Hi there! This is a Japanese Pop/Rock Album. This album`s special point is the band`s sound. The vocalist is Hatsune Miku.
Very catchy and pop!
The songs have emotional Japanese lyrics.
The Genre is Electro.
This album includes four songs, and three instrumentals.
Today we rocked Tokyo.
We played an hour long show.
With Slingshotmillion2, Pablo and other bands from the indie scene in Japan. It was held at Live house Rokudemonaiyoru.
It`s a small venue on the third floor of a building at Shimokitazawa station.
Yes, I sometimes feel as if I`m talking to no-one. But I know that anything done with diligence will be rewarded.
We will be paying our hosting site Godaddy the annual fee this month, to keep this site going.
We hope you like the content. And me: your host Jesse Sou Pritchard, will be faithfully keeping you updated with what`s bliss in Japan, Basically Tokyo, my band and what happens at our studios.
So, there you have it. My band performed a live show. And tommorrow I`m a free man! Happy, and free. At least for a day!
I need to take a shower and get some Z`s.
