Music Mayhem 2016 Picture Roll

Our annual studio retreat was this past weekend. Music Mayhem 2016 was the usual 3 days of writing music, making videos and general silliness.

Music Mayhem 2016

ladies-of-musicmayhem

Our yearly pilgrimage to the wilds of Tybee Island commences on Friday.  Music Mayhem, now in it’s 3rd year, is a chance to hang out with band mates old and new – write some new tunes – kick back and enjoy some well deserved R&R.  The weather looks terrible for this upcoming weekend which is music to our ears – we write our best when it’s raining.   If you happen to live on Tybee and see some strange guys running around in scrubs – fear not – just some content for an upcoming video…..

Making of: 70’s Ghostly

A behind the scenes look at recording 70’s Ghostly.

The core of the track was recorded one weekend at Kyle’s house.  The Friday night was not so productive as the Saturday AM but hey – that’s how it goes sometimes…  We set up a temporary recording studio  for 24 hours.  Here we see a rather dashing Kyle modeling the space for us 🙂

Kyle Jim-KylesHouse

This core idea track was refined in Jim’s studio over the following weeks with Dorian laying down additional guitar tracks, a bass track was added as well some vocal reworks & harmonies.  Kyle sent in a couple more guitar parts recorded offline in his studio which were sync’d and added to the master track.

The mix was then put through a final mixing stage in the “mix room”.  This room is a little more balanced and treated, hopefully producing a better overall sound.

The result is 70’s Ghostly.  Hope you enjoy!

E.P. New Track – 70’s Ghostly (Lyrics)

Track #1 from our new E.P.: The Leftover Session – 70’s Ghostly.

[soundcloud_ultimate track=https://soundcloud.com/leftoverjack-1/70s-ghostly]

Lyrics:

Where are you going, when did I see you, it is to early,  to be looking so blue.  You’re 70’s Ghostly just lovely to see, the mist all around you is  —- your  mystery. Stone faced and lonely yet what do I know, you could be happy but it doesn’t show. You’re shamelessly lovely , all dusty and grey, your sad face is telling  —- your history. Oh bright eyes, lost in the darkness of my cries. Tattered & worn this is my life, you’ve gone to dance in the unknown. So tell me, what is beyond there, unveil it. You left me right here, so lonely, you’ve gone to love in the unknown. See you each morning, each day of the week, shadowy greeting, never we meet. You’re 70’s Ghostly, heart break to see, I wish I could hold you —- yet set you free. And so tomorrow , the first time you’re gone, what happened is sorrow , lost in this song. So brazenly lovely , just my memory, is waving goodbye now —- I’ll let you be. Oh bright eyes, lost in the darkness of my cries. Tattered & worn this is my life, you’ve gone to dance in the unknown. So tell me, what is beyond there, unveil it. You left me right here, so lonely, you’ve gone to love in the unknown.   (So the) party is over and there’s no more wine, U had a lot to say but there’s no more time. I’m loosing you, not much more left hear to say. (I’m) a little bit older & a little bit blue, and it’s breaking my heart just watching you. I’m loosing you, not much more left hear to say…

E.P. New Track: (Who’s Gonna) Want Your Love (Lyrics)

Track 4 on our launch E.P. – (Who’s Gonna) Want Your Love

[soundcloud_ultimate track=https://soundcloud.com/leftoverjack-1/whos-gonna-want-your-love]

Lyrics:
Borrowed a soul from a movie scene, must have confused with reality
Fictitious creatures are pulling down, your daily life as an aging clown
You take like a foolish bum, sucking on a babies thumb
You could think for a little while, what it was to even smile
Who’s Gonna want your love, Who’s Gonna want your love
Sitting like a freak on a leash, contaminated with your bleach
Who’s Gonna want your love, Who’s Gonna want your love
Sorrowed and blue is what I’ve seen, must have missed out on self esteem
Replant you back in the earth again, so you can see how to begin
You wave like a desert rose, begging just to even grow
You could take just a little time, just to find a little spine
Who’s Gonna want your love, Who’s Gonna want your love
Sitting like a freak on a leash, contaminated with your bleach
Who’s Gonna want your love, Who’s Gonna want your love
