Amateur Dance Party - Swimwear Nation

I recorded all of these tracks toward the end of winter, prior to our current circumstances (with the exception of the last, which is a re-recording of my Lines Community Stream patch). I intended to release it earlier, but found myself so mired in work (largely emotionally) that I had stopped working on finalizing the tracks. Last Sunday, I set a goal of releasing something by this Sunday and, despite a few setbacks (two days ago I found that my mastering had caused all of the tracks to clip terribly), I’m happy to have posted this a day ahead of my self-imposed deadline.

I wanted this material to sound a bit burnt out. I guess I intended for it to be a summer album - slow, hazy, and a bit drenched.

The final result is a bit quieter than I’d hoped since mastering is not one of my strengths.
