Well, I’ve been posting news about this a couple of times so far, but The Norliss Tapes debut EP just isn’t finished yet. It takes some time to finish up the material, but now it looks like we’re finally coming ’round to actually have the songs ready. Until then, I decided to finish up the sleeve for this (so far) digital release. With the music being somewhat weird amalgam of 60s lounge and modern “dance” music, I tried to go with artwork with the similar feel.
Again, this was the most unusual way I’ve produced music so far. Editing samples and rythms from various forms of exotica, lounge jazz and other types of vintage schmaltz and then sending them to another musician for him to add, deduct, edit etc, was fun and always made me pleasantly surprised! I’m looking forward to see it released and then start working on a second release. Again, a little teaser video that’s making its rounds on YouTube:
