The "other stuff" mostly just involves reading, which I can do while my ridiculously slow computer processes audio files. I also reasoned that I should probably get these songs as good as it seems like I can before I walk away from them for a few days.
I already knew of a few issues which each of the songs that needed to be addressed, so that's what I've been doing. Ideally, I am trying to finish up all mixing and re-rerecording before I move on to the mastering phase, which I like to think that I have almost reached.
You can hear newly mixed versions of all of the songs at my ReverbNation page, or at the links below:
01. Shadow Puppets
02. Light Pollution
03. Rat Race
04. Out to Get You
05. The Regular
07. Plastic Flowers
Now we'll see if I can actually walk away from this project or not. I suspect that I already know the answer. When I've got momentum on a big project, I usually like to keep going with it.
Thanks for listening.
