I think I read that you guys retired playing Vacation live a few months back, and it's my favorite song by you. Is there any chance of it getting un-retired tomorrow night (I'll actually be able to see you play in NY this time without anything getting in the way of that)

We’re not playing it tonight. I’m sorry! It’s just a weird song where Elaiza isn’t doing anything for a long stretch of time and Nick is doing a drum solo that he doesn’t want to do anymore. I’m thinking of rearranging it in hopes of us playing a new version of it live one day. The cartridge that it was on got corrupted, so we’ll see how it goes!

We have a bunch of songs that we’ve written since Get Olde. At some point, the Game Boy cartridge with 70% of those songs got corrupted. They weren’t backed up anywhere (whoops!) and I had a mental breakdown (whoops!)! We did, however, have recordings of all the Game Boy parts…the problem was that these were scratch recordings to record guitar/drums/vocals along to and the three individual Game Boy tracks weren’t separated in the recordings. Blah blah blah. It was a mess. I had to listen back to the recordings in order to match everything up. Finally, after a long trip down the rabbit hole, I did it. Everything is cool now. We’re playing our first show in, like, 1.25 months tonight. Let’s ride. “We’re back.” Positivity World 2014. Don’t record your Game Boy tracks to tape and expect to get away with it!

SEE YA SOON, PHILLY. https://www.facebook.com/events/727802250586022

This band is going to be very important to our car rides.

Return to Olde World, by Crying

Hello Crylons,

Just uploaded a bunch of pre-Get Olde demos+”rarities” that could be fun to listen to. Tried to include the most important demos like ones connected to the beginning of the band or different versions or whatever. I’m including extra explanations for the tracks too, so read those if you want to be a super fan.

BLOOM was a song I wrote in high school and the first full song I made on LSDJ (later on in 2012). The Game Boy melody was originally going to be the vocal line. 

RAT BABY was one of the first songs I sent to Elaiza for her to record a vocal draft to, but only with the parts of the song you hear on track 3. I couldn’t think of a good ending part, so I asked her if she had any ideas and she sent back track 7 and I morphed it the F out.

When Nick heard this version of OLDE WORLD, he said, “it’s done,” but I convinced him that he should play drums on it. I think I remember him not realizing there was even guitar on it. Speaking of Nick, he’s in the band LVL UP and I wanted us to play a cover of a LVL UP and a Whatever, Dad song (Elaiza’s solo stuff) and the Totally Ruined soundcheck is the as far as I got with that idea.

VACATION without bass sounds nice. I totally dropped the ball with the bass on that song.

LUV RULEZ was the silly file name I chose for the song that became ES. Most of the songs would already have titles (the LSDJ filenames) that Elaiza would write for, but this one wouldn’t have made sense. The ending takes forever. Glad it’s way shorter now.

BODEGA RUN was written on the train ride to Nick’s house, where Elaiza and I were going to record Get Olde in a weekend. I had lied to Elaiza and Nick and told them I had seven songs to record when I had only had 5.5 songs (ES was Luv Rulez and I needed to change it). To honor the original song, I decided to take a little ol’ half hour to make a remix it. As soon as I finished it, I uploaded this whole thing.

And track 9 was going to be a song on whatever our next proper release is, but Nick and Elaiza didn’t want it and then I deleted it because it got corrupted. Have fun.

Yours,
Ryan & Crying
