And gosh dangit, that's just what we're going to do with it!
So, among the slew of material which is mine populated on this page, I hope to match that track with one that inspires me in some manner. This whole thing starts to feel a whole heck of a lot more communal after that, right?
Hang tight just a bit so I'm not a blatant liar when putting that statement out there. This is a decision not to be made lightly. Oh, and I have this whole fucking website to restore as well. Get to it when we get to it!

Directly (OK, 6 weeks following) the release of his second LP, Small World, Chuck W. got crackin on new material once more. There was no rush, just a desire. Feeling under the gun from yet even futher bad personal news, there weren't many outlets to turn to other than my laptop. That is one of the chief reasons this EP is entirely softsynth. It's because the EP was born of the desire to create, but the lack motivation made it difficult to even consider a new cut with hardware.
Sitting at his laptop for only about ten days, all five songs spewed forth. They were listened to at most twice before being sent off for mastering. This was done on purpose. The tracks would not receive too much interference from my own mindset and once it was out of my hands there was only so much I could edit from that distance. One major goal was shoot from the hip and think later.
The other major goal was to create a 'happy' album. With Small World being the most messed up thing I foresaw every coming forth from my fingertips, I didn't wish to repeat myself. I had frankly grown sick of my own negativity.
Despite best efforts, some of the doom and gloom inevitably creapt in thanks to the pesky sub-conscious. While I may call this a 'happy' album, I can easily see how that would not be the perception of the listener. Either way, I do hope you enjoy and feedback is always welcome!
Now, please make sure to follow the playlist above, or this attempt was entirely a wash. Let's kick this sucker off, though! I literally just slapped it together, so track by track, let's discuss!
I'm going to choose my tracks 'Jazz For A Rainy Day,' 'Monoarm,' and 'The First Road To Small World' for this first go-around. That way, I don't need to explain them :-P
The tracks for those whom inspire me will be cookie cutter for this first go as well. As time passes, I will ensure it gets more absurd and out there in general, my stuff included. The playlist above kind of shows my hand, unfortunately, but I'd like to do a little tribute to those added to the list most recently for each and every update.
