Description
From the APOD CD Looking Outside

The RPM Challenge required us to write, record, produce and create a CD from nothing, starting February 1st and have the whole thing complete and pressed as a CD by Feb 28.

The early versions of this song were called 'I See Stars'. Michael wrote this using an iphone app called chordbot as the strating point. Kevin and Bryn added things to it at varying points, then things were taken out and re-added and taken out again. I honestly can't remember who played what on this final version, but roughly

Kevin - Bass
Bryn - chimey, synthy, echoey atmospheres and backing vocals
Michael - Lead vocals and all other instruments

that song title looks familiar, I like the clacky sounds behind the synths, mellow and retrospective

Lovely song, I'm reminded of the Beatles and the Move, but mostly the Beatles in their later recordings. Very much enjoyed this melodic and pleasing piece.

ah yes
chordbot. really helpful at increasing the time available for songwriting. waiting in lines becomes composition time. ti\his is one of my faves.

I agree with the others on the Beatles reference.
Killer vocals, M2 is da man! The backer is tight with a complementary mix of sounds. Great production.
