New track released: TR3

I’ve pushed a new version of my song TR3 to my Bandcamp page.

I’ve changed the music some from the prevous version, most notably in the break. I’ve also added vocals.

I’m not quite happy with the vocals, and need to work more on the mix to get a better balance of bass in there.

The song is about the amazing (but sadly short-lived) club Tier 3, AKA TR3. Back in the day I played there with Chinese Forehead a number of times, and it was fantastic.

Across (to 59th, 2am)

New track. Across (to 59th, 2 a.m.)

Back when I spent a good deal of time in downtown Manhattan. Often I would end up someplace over on the east side, somewhere around one or two in the morning.

There were few good options to get over to the west side where I would catch the uptown A to get me back up to Washington Heights.

Cab, or walk, and (lacking funds) often I would do the latter.

This is the soundtrack for those treks.
