My album is almost finished. In the final check-ups and everything. Also debating on an additional track to add (it's up in the air, at the moment, but when you feel the itch to write and produce something, you just got to.) 

 

This was a very personal album, and the first one I spent months on, rather than solely a few weeks. I was influenced by the political climate of post-Trump America, but also about my memories growing up (in the closet) in rural midwest America. This time period was between 2006-2008, so Abercrombie, itself, is a nostalgic pull - and I understand the title can at first seem silly, but I hope it makes better sense in context. 

 

Here's the cover! :)

 

Brownie points to whoever guesses the album's cover my little gay heart was nostalgically inspired by. 

 

 

Spoiler

01. VCR (Intro) [1:07]

The overall mood kind of brings me back to my trip hop phase that I had several years ago, I really really like it and will be going back for more :smokes4:

Oh wow, this sounds amazing! I like your music style and I can't wait to hear the other songs.

Do you mind me asking if you produce everything yourself? It all sounds quite professional :gclap:

Yeah, I pretty much do everything. Haha. 

 

On a side note to others, I'm thinking I'm going to go ahead and release the album today for LB. Just because you guys have been so warming of "Ra".  :crai:

How would you guys prefer the album? Soundcloud playlist, or a Youtube video with them together?

Actually decent. Usually the gays on forums releasing music is a mess, but Ra is good.

This is the Soundcloud link. I'll do a Youtube video later, for those who don't bother with the site (plus, it doesn't embed here. :( )

 

Listen on Soundcloud.com

Currently, only "Abercrombie Dreams" has the lyrics, which are under the Soundcloud stream. 

 

However, just because you asked, I'll be posting them here soon.  :kiss3:

Youtube version, so you can hear the album flow together. (It may take a few before it hits 1080p.) <3
