If you're not familiar with the word and haven't yet looked it up, go ahead. I can wait.
It's really kind of an ugly word for what it is. However, I think it fits the vibe of this album, and I like to introduce new vocabulary words whenever possible. I do teach English, after all. For what it's worth, I also enjoy gently busting rhymes (but only sometimes).
Petrichor will soon be able to stream or purchase wherever you get your music. Please do, and if you happen to know anybody else as cool as you, please share my songs with that person, too. We should all hang out sometime.

This album feels like it's just about done. It probably isn't... but on my studio monitors and headphones, I think that it sounds pretty good at this point.
I have now reached the part of the process where I listen to it through as many different sets of speakers as I can and then try to make it sound equally good on all of them. (I'm self-taught at all of this stuff, but this is more or less how I tend to think of mastering.)
Check it out for yourself. See what you think.
You can hear all eleven of the new songs exclusively on my ReverbNation page:

I've gotten a lot of reading done this week, mostly while waiting for my ancient laptop to process audio files so that I could listen to them and then go back and make adjustments. It takes about four minutes to export a song, which I have to keep doing until it's more or less where I want it.
That said, I might finally be done with the mixing, and I'd like to think that I mean it this time. This is the part where I try to be as objective as possible when I listen to it, which isn't always easy.
