Work on the next album, is well underway. I have a name for it already, but the artwork is seeming to take a while because I am currently fresh out of ideas. The new album will be called The Living Room. I was thinking about making some sort of cover that would be like looking down on a coffee table of some sort with a coaster and a water ring, but I don’t know. If I decide to do that, then that would mean I’d have to figure out how to make it. We’ll see.
Good news! I’ve finished yet another new song. The bad news, however, is the PureVolume still isn’t working so I can’t upload it. I really hope they fix the problem soon. Or at the very least I would appreciate if they replied to my support ticket that I filed with them.
Well, I hate to say it, but I don’t really have much to tell everyone. I’ve been in some sort of slump where music just isn’t happening. I finally made my first new song in a quite a while today and while making it, I had several issues with my computer. I seemed to be constantly plagued with a “Your computer is too slow to play back this song.” dialog box. It was quite frustrating, but I managed all the same. I guess it’s time for a new computer.
Anyway, I finished the new song and when I went to upload it on PureVolume, the uploader didn’t work. They recently redesigned their site and I can’t say that I really like it at all. Nothing seems to work correctly anymore, not to mention that I don’t think it looks as good as the last version did. Oh well, what can you do. I have filed a ticket with their support and hopefully will hear from them soon. I will also keep trying to upload the new song, called Stereo Image, and let you know here once it’s done.
I’ve posted a new song to my PureVolume page. It’s called “Mad Hero”.
A few days ago I ordered an upgrade to the software I use to create my music. It’s called Reason. I ordered version 4 which came out late last year. It came in today and I’ve been playing with it and all the new toys that it came with. I’m pretty excited about it. We’ll see how it affects my music. Should be good.
Parlour has finally made it to iTunes! You can purchase the entire album for $9.99 or you can purchase songs separately for 99 cents a piece. They are available as DRM-free iTunes Plus songs.

Well, there really isn’t a whole lot going on at the moment. I’ve been hard at work on both Xynx’s debut album album as well as the my next album. I’ve also been helping write some material and producing some songs for a band called Tea & Bricks which I will talk about in a future post. For now, I’ll just tell you that they are a rock band that has some pretty decent stuff.
Unfortunately, the free download for Parlour is still down and may be down for a while yet. I’m not quite sure what’s going on with it, but as usual I will let you know here when I find out more details about it.
