Frogtown Heatwave

Once again, I’m a bit later with the Frogtown single than I had planned… I always seem to end up on the first Friday of the month now regardless of whether Bandcamp is having a no-fee day. I was fully on schedule to get it posted on Wednesday, but these tracks turned out to be particularly challenging to mix properly, and I’d rather do the best I can and be a little late than do an inadequate job just to get it out on time. They’re also a bit longer than the usual Frogtown tracks. There might be something extra thrown in as well.

The special guests featured this month are the fabulous duo of Andrew & Melon Liles. Modifications of Andrew’s sounds form the foundation of track 1 before all the goofy hoopla was added on top, and they figure into all of the other tracks to some extent. Melon’s voice was used to create all of the non-instrument sounds in track 2, and most of the time Andrew’s sounds were employed as the means of modifying it. Derivations of her voice are used in all the other tracks as well, in obvious or subtle ways. Huge thanks and big, froggy love to the Lileses for agreeing to participate in this project!

best wishes to all
