Great EP from our very own @Patterns in Traffic
CHECK IT OUT
Direction, by Patterns in Traffic
HYPEEEE I still need to check this out! It's not a question of if but when. Glad people are finally starting to listen to Pat.
@Patterns in Traffic production is really good on this, did you go to a studio or do this yourself?
We must move forward, not backward; upward, not forward; and always twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom!
My drive home is 25 minutes. This will be perfect.
This EP slaps
Oh shit...I've made it!
Thanks for the thread, @teebs41!
Thank you! Did this all myself in my "home studio" (a spare bedroom). I did outsource the mastering to the SoundLAB at Disc Makers.
Is this a Tingle quote? That would be excellent.
Yess always wanted to slap
I need a "love" button for this thread
Haha it’s from The Simpsons
Really enjoyed the EP. Right and Left were standouts on my first listen.
Haha also excellent.
Thanks so much for listening! Cool to hear different people digging different tracks. "Right" was actually a late addition. I had a completely different song that was going to be "Right" that I finished demoing and everything. Then I came up with this idea and decided it fit better.
I just listened to the new Kanye West album and this back to back, and I can confidently say that I much prefer this!
Good work @Patterns in Traffic! On first listen, my favorites are Forward and Right.
I don’t know enough about music to say what it is, but something about Right gives me a Minus the Bear Planet of Ice era vibe
Thank you so much! Haven't listened to the new Kanye yet. Seems like perhaps not the most obvious pairing
Glad you enjoy those two songs, I hadn't seen anyone specifically call out Forward yet so it is really cool to hear that you thought that was a standout!
Awesome compliment! If I'm being honest it started out as a Young the Giant ripoff
Thought I would leave this here for those of you who were kind enough to check out my EP a few years back. My second full-length record is out this Friday (7/1)! It's been a four-year process putting it together and it's a bit eclectic in that it's about half softer acoustic tracks and half more high-energy rock songs. Alternative rock is the general descriptor I would use for those who are unfamiliar. I grew up on late-90s and early-2000s pop/rock radio, so those are the kinds of hooks I'm drawn to writing. I would be extremely appreciative of anyone who takes the time to give it a shot! Here's the album art and tracklist:
1. Lights and Reflections
3. The Music Plays
4. Beautiful Surprise
5. Hotel Chelsea
6. Fi's Song
7. No Wonderland
8. Sparks Fly
9. Sink or Swim
10. Easy Way Out
11. Safe to Say
12. So Damaged
13. Living Without You
Insider tip: I've been releasing this album in pieces over the past couple years, so you can actually hear 10 of the 13 tracks now in the form of two five-song EPs that are already on streaming/digital outlets. The Reflections EP is mostly the acoustic side of the record, while the Lights EP is the rock side. Gotta wait until Friday for the three LP-exclusive tracks!
