La Giardino di Gigli Rosa (recorded, mixed, etc January 2015)

Like Surrender Is Not The Answer, this album came together really quickly. I was remixing and remastering the first two albums, and decided I wanted to try my hand at another XR1300 album. Remembering my lesson about mixing and mastering from the last album (which was originally mixed too loud on purpose for some odd reason), I think this one has the perfect mix of loudness and dynamics. That said, the middle part of "Chasing A Fawn" is intentionally ugly sounding.

The title is Italian for "The Garden of Pink Lilies." Or that's what Google Translate told me anyway. The title is somewhat influenced by erotic scenes in the anime Yuri Kuma Arashi.

I used fuzz bass on most of these songs. I'm thinking my next project (or maybe next XR1300 release) will be a space rock album.
