So, my family doesn’t send out cards for the holidays. Nope. Not our style. Instead, we record full length Christmas albums every goddamn year using our home studio. More, we record 10-12 tracks from scratch (unless we get lazy & decide to use karaoke), engineer & render ‘em up, and then burn everything onto a nice CD with a custom label & jacket usually designed by my mother.
It sounds cool, right? Actually, I assure you that it’s a nightmare. During production, my parents & I want nothing more than to stab each other in the chest with something hard & serrated. Repeatedly. This year, though, we managed a few gems in lieu of persistent bickering & stress. And, this particular song happens to be my favorite for obvious reasons (-cough-BioShock-cough-).
Now, please keep in mind that we are by no means professional engineers. Musicians, sure, but our recording skills aren’t exactly top notch. Still, all things considered, this jam turned out pretty nice. I mean, I don’t completely hate it yet. That’s kinda neat.
Anyway, do enjoy!
And, of course, Happy Holidays :D
P.S.—I promise we go back to loving each other once production wraps. At least, we have for the last 8 years.
