Turns out today isn’t such a great day to record after all. Tomorrow looks more promising.
For now, here are a few sketches recorded at various junctures, all of them done mainly to test a few microphones that were new at the time (a Rode K2 in the first two, and a Shure SM7B in the third). They were all improvised with the intention of revisiting them later and turning them into full-bodied songs, but that only happened with one of them. As such, the words don’t really make any sense.
Some Enchanted Early Evening was the one that I tweaked a bit, which is why it has two different titles. But I’ve yet to record the final version. The seed of it was recorded just as I was coming down with a nasty cold/sinus infection, though for some odd reason it doesn’t really sound like I was sick at the time. Or maybe it does, and I just don’t hear it because my ears are inside-out.
Now the songs are loading and playing fine for me, when they were being a little prickly yesterday. Maybe I just needed to send some water through the pipes. Or maybe my computer was just playing with me.
