The story of a family in eight songs. Joey, Jimmy, Mandy. An unnamed brother. Or sister? Bored to death with working 9 to 5 at the office and feeling lonely but worried about Mandy’s kids. Mandy’s abandoned lover. Another son. Or perhaps Jimmy again? During the songs the story unfolds and ends where it started: Joey. This ain’t no happy story. Grief, loss, anger, adultery, violence. It’s the world we live in. It’s the world we write songs about.
We’ve released a new album, “Yesterday’s Coffee”, including eight new songs on SoundCloud and BandCamp. It’s the second album this year containing original songs and telling a full story in eight songs.
On SoundCloud there’s one free download available, the title track “Yesterday’s Coffee”. The full album is available on BandCamp for only US$5 and includes unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in WAV (CD format) MP3, FLAC and more. It also includes the front and back of the CD in high quality JPEG format so you can print it.
The album has been recorded at the “ZolderStudio” homestudio. Recordings were made using Ardour LinuxAudio and Mixcraft. Mastering was done using AAMS free mastering software.
— “I didn’t plan to record a full album, I started out writing a song with the idea of creating a trilogy: three songs that tell a story. Four songs perhaps. So I’d have an EP. I needed eight songs though to tell the story and so I’ve ended up recording a full album in a short period in between two jobs, studying and being a father. It was a fun project to do though and I enjoyed every minute of it” – Rudy
