Recording/Grabando.

Quiero compartir con ustedes un poco de la sesión de grabación de nuestro primer single.

Aqui, un poquito de mi parte (el bajo). Los otros instrumentos ya grabados, sonando en el fondo; el bajo conectado a la caja directa y listo.

Recording.


 I want to share with you a little bit about the recording session of our first single.

Here, a little from my thing (the bass). The other instruments already recorded, playing at the background; the bass connected to the direct box and go.

How to write a song.


How to write a song.


  • Step 1

Write a song.

  • Step 2

Find every findable mistake possible.

  • Step 3

Hate yourself.

  • Step 4

Focus your mind on fixing the mistakes previously found. It’s not that hard, you can do it.

  • Step 5

Get on it.

  • Step 6

Realize that you actually can’t do it, that you are terrible at fixing things and that now it’s way worse than before.

  • Step 7

Hate yourself x2

  • Step 8

Give up, for now.

  • Step 9

Open the box where you are saving the songs to fix later.

  • Step 10

Behold the cemetery of songs.

  • Step 11

Hate yourself even more.

  • Step 12

Go to sleep.

  • Step 13

Dream

Dream about some solutions.

 

  • Step 14

Wake up.

  • Repeat steps 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 and 14 for (you know) ever.

Or just meh… on it, and play it like it is until it magically fixes itself.

Like I’m doing with this one:

 

Check for the subtitles if you want to read the lyrics. 

Musamonsters.


‘Sup guys? I know I haven’t been posting enough these days and I already said that it is because I’ve been busy with bands things and all of that. So I decided to write a little about it so you get to know it once and for all.

You can read the spanish version of this post here.


This is Musanostra.


 Musanostra was born in 2011 as a band of young rebels who made indie-dance music. Over the years, with all the experiences, encounters and farewells, it became a family that walks united between Latin American folk, indie and the hope that gives the love for freedom.

 

In our melting pot of influences come Jorge Drexler, Devendra Banhart and Ali Primera, with the Arctic Monkeys, Fleet Foxes, RHCP and traditional Venezuelan music. The muses dance freely between styles, giving us the inspiration with which we composed after countless coffees, in countless early mornings.


They were winners of the New Bands East circuit and blablabla, that’s the least, the important thing is that they sound great and they are good people. In these moments I am playing (the bass) with them, as well as in other musical projects, but I’ll tell you about that later. I’ll share a little of a rehearsal here, another little here.

And that’s it, you are Musamonsters already, welcome!


kex

Right now we are finishing recording a promotional single with its respective video. (We have other videos out there in case you want to look at them but I look terrible so don’t look too much at them =) So yeah, rehearsals, gigs, and more rehearsals that take part of my time with my dear you; but I haven’t left, nor will I go!

 

I leave the Instagram of the band here @musanostra in case you want to take a look, and I say goodbye for now. I hope that you do great and that when I return everyone is 80+ reputation. I love you.

 


Bless.
