I got an email from brother Brad asking me to plug something for a friend of his. I told him I’d be happy to do it so long as I get my damn Cherpumple. Actually I didn’t, but in all seriousness he’s thinking about trying to make one, at least that’s how it sounds. If he does, my vote is do it for dad’s Christmas so that if it sucks we can leave it there. One thing about dad, he’ll eat just about anything regardless of whether or not it’s a good idea.

Anyway, here’s Brad’s email.

Have a listen to this and tell me what ya think.

Also, if you don’t mind, he’s trying to get it out there…so if you might post it he’d like that too. 

I don’t know if you know Jesse Perriam. I think you did meat him once. He’s put together something of an album, and this is the first thing off it.

Personally, I’d rather it without the electronic voice butcherer, but, it’s his song. 

Thanks. 

Brad.

Yes, I did meet him once. Seemed like a nice enough dude, so post it I shall.

And I agree. The song isn’t bad at all, but the “electronic voice butcherer” is very distracting in spots. Makes it hard to get into because all the attention is focussed on the effects rather than the words and the melody. Maybe there’s a compromize where you could keep the effects but tone them down, but as it is it’s too much. Most people use that sort of thing to hide a shitty voice, but he doesn’t sound like he has to.

With all of that said, here it is so you can form your own opinions.

  1. >Yeah the electronic voice butcherer has to go, much as I like the term. I was expecting autotune, but not…that mind-fuck-causing echo.

  2. >Funny you say that. When I saw electronic voice butcherer, autotune is what I expected too. That would have been worse.

  3. >I listened to this the other day and then got distracted. I think the, what did you call it? voice generator or something? Anyway, I think that was meant to demonstrate how the song would sound with background vocals. I'm thinking he used his own equipment to make this recording? If so, all he needs to do is tweak it some. I'm thinking he sang the harmonies on another track, or is there really software that generates it on its own?

    Anyway that's a lot of rambling. I like the song and I'll plug this post tomorrow. I sure hope he doesn't go auto tune. I'm automatically boycotting anyone who uses that crap and sounds robotic. I like the organic sounds of this and if the mix gets tweaked a bit, it'll help it.

    I have a headache, not at all related to the song since I didn't listen to it today so if this post makes no sense, I blame the pain.
