dogstarpicI’ve decided to do something different with my coverage of the RPM Challenge this year. Instead of leaving the songs up all willy-nilly, I’m only going to leave the latest song online. Today I am posting song number one, which is called “Dogstar”. When song two is complete, I will remove Dogstar from the web and put up the second song, etc. Since these songs will eventually be released, these will not be available for download.

It took me two days to complete song one and I’m thrilled with it so far. I had mixed feelings about the tag lyric, but said screw it. I really like the words and decided that was more important to me that what anybody might think of them. This will be a Boolean Knife song, so Mike is going to record his original bass part in the next few days. Also, the chorus of Dogstar is begging for saxophone, so with luck we’ll get Tim in here within the week. I’ve gone as far as I can with the track, so I’m posting it now and starting on the next song.

What are the lyrics about? You tell me. Leave your thoughts in the comments below. Enjoy!

I used to have a problem. I always thought to get a great sounding recording, I had to be in a ‘real’ studio. It’s because
