SONG THREE: Tackle Box

Between battling a massive head cold (yes, still happening) and some minor equipment issues (I/O box vs Windows 10) I’ve fallen a bit behind on the RPM Challenge this month. I know that I’m going to power through and catch up, and even if I don’t, I am committed to making ten songs even if it takes me an extra few days.

Track number three is now complete and is called Tackle Box. The song is an elegy for my step-brother Boone who was taken from us suddenly last year. Bass by Michael Koelling and extra vocals by Cynthia Sizer.

EDIT 3.12.16: Access to this track has expired. It will be available on a future Boolean Knife release.

Music for song #4 is finished “left to right” as I like to say. This means I’ve got the linear arrangement down from start to finish. The instrumentation is still a little too basic. I like the words a lot so I want the finished product to be just that: finished. I don’t want to give in to the temptation of making demos, even though I’m under pretty tight deadlines. Stay tuned, crime-fighters!
