9 track album
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.

Crying demo b-side. You probably won’t ever hear a full version of this song.

do you still program drum parts for the gameboy even though there's drummer in the band?
Sometimes, but none of it shows up on recordings.
