Album Review Blog Page

During the past couple of weeks I have created a blog page linked to this website on album reviews. So far I have reviewed two albums. Paramore ‘Self Titled’ album and Issues ‘Self Titled’ album.

I decided to have more of a personal vibe to these reviews with some mention of technical jargon and instrumentation.

I plan to have at least five or six done in total before the end of the month, to showcase that I can review different styles of music.

Band Rehearsal: 26/04/17

This session was the first rehearsal we had done in two weeks due to the easter holidays. We were also scheduled to record one of our original tracks that we started before the holiday.

We thought the first thing and the best thing to do would be to scrub up on our original songs so that we were well rehearsed for the recording session.

After we felt we had gone through the set enough times, we began working on a new song that we started on the last day before the holidays.

I recorded some of the last session on my phone so I went back and listened to it to remember and remind the others what we accomplished because chris couldn’t remember what he did in the ambient section.

The quality of the recording was not the best so it didn’t help and he still doesn’t know what he played. However we are hopefully going to get this sorted for the end of next session.

The recording went well in my eyes, and all the tracks have been recorded, so now we can focus on creating some more material leading up to the end of year gig.

We have a charity gig on the eleventh of this month so all rehearsals from now until then will be focusing on how we can make our performance the best we can!

Cookie Gig: 06/04/17

The Cookie gig went a lot better than I thought! I enjoyed every second up there and considering it was my first time performing at that venue, I thought it went rather well.

The reaction we all got whilst performing was great and they all seemed to really enjoy it. The atmosphere was just a massive hype and everyone did so well!

My strengths were the fact that I actually moved and fully performed on stage. I feel like I am finally coming out of my shell and into this whole new person when I’m on stage.

My weaknesses were probably working myself up to a nervous wreck and not being able to control my vocals. However no one seemed to notice that so that’s okay.

 

Catch Up

Okay! So since the gig I have been ridiculously busy with coursework and maths revision. However I have been writing a few songs and listening to some new music. I’ve made sure I’m not too out of practice and have been fully planning my masterclass, ready for when we all go back to college.

I will post again on Wednesday after band rehearsal to update you all on what we will be working on for the rest of the term.
