    Yeah, that kind of free vibe. Exactly what I was trying to say!
    What you were going for came across.

    it's cool the vibe comes across,
    i think that's one of the hardest things to do when writing tunes...

    Incredible work. Was this professionally mixed? Do you guys do music full time? There's something revealing about how a band as kickass and talented as you guys only have like 250 followers on SC, and mumble rappers with fake instruments and samples get millions of streams daily. Truly a different music age we live in today. Makes me wonder when real instruments and rock n' roll will be in vogue again.

    hey stevie! thanks so much for the kind words....

    you pack a LOT of things to consider in your post....

    first off, i mix all of my own projects. can you call it professionally mixed? yea, i guess so, i know what i'm doing, even if i'm not in an expensive studio.

    music full time?
    not any more, but i spent 6 years of full time professional gigging all over the southeast. 6 nights a week, 52 weeks a year.

    this new album, is my 4th full length album.
    this is a solo act mostly, with a guest drummer on the album "Trouble".



    i post music here, there, everywhere, very often,
    and it is mostly ignored.

    6 years of nonstop professional gigging - wow! That's quite impressive. So you perform all the instruments AND play your own drums on these Bat's Brew records? Curious to know how you're recording your guitars. Are you using real gear or DI VST plugins? Do you use multiple mic placements for each take? How much bass do you usually EQ out to achieve those clean sounds without mud? I read about Bats Brew on Robbie Goble's article on The Musicopolis. Really great stuff. He was actually planning on writing an article on my full-length cover of Pink Floyd "Animals", but 2 years later, still nothing.

    hey stevie!

    it was a lot of gigging, yes.
    too much!
    LOL

    i do not play drums, wished i could...
    i program drums from scratch using superior drummer 3.
    i do everything else.
    on the TROUBLE album, i had a guest drummer play all songs. he's a killer drummer. just killer.

    recording guitars:
    rig-full-jpg

    everything is done old school.
    guitars ino a 1982 mesa boogie mark IIb head, into various cabs with various speakers, favorite setup is the avatar cab with early 80's greenbacks.
    sm57 mic, or sometimes a large condenser shure KSM44 close miced.
    bass into a sansamp bass di, split into a A Designs Audio MP-1 tube mic pre, and direct out of the sansamp.


    i only record in mono, so only ever use a single mic for guitars, and mult the two bass tracks to one mono track.

    the key to good bass parts, is to get it to sound right going in.
    do as little eq'ing as possible at first.
    then, once everything is tracked, and final mixing is going, i simply carve out freqs that build up, and try not too boost too much, so it all stays fairly clean.

    it's easier to do this on a song like World Goin down, because all the rhythm is acoustic guitar,
    which is pretty light frequency wise. acoustics get high passed at 150hz, so it's clean below that.

    robert goble wrote an excellent review of the "Trouble" album,
