Homer's Music - Nebraska's Best Selection of New, Used CD's, DVD's, and LP's

We began writing this record on New Years Day 2023. With that sentiment we felt like it was destined to be a totally new experience and we truly put our best feet forward. Since MILLY began, it was pretty much just myself writing everything but with this record it was much different. We solidified our lineup and we worked as hard as we could together, meeting 2 - 3 times a week for 6 months and playing music as a band because we wanted the record to have that feel. It sounds silly saying it that way as we are a rock band, but we had never spent more than a week or two actually preparing in a room before recording in the past. Everything previously was done very on the fly whereas this record we tried as many things as we coul d and used our heads. We talked about music a lot, and the way we wanted people to feel when they heard our new stuff -- the way that we feel when we listen to our favorites. We kept pondering if we could reinvent the wheel for ourselves in some way, even if minor.. just to feel a bit different and fresh. A large majority of the songs originated from jams that we recorded in our practice space and then I took home and chopped up. Once Sonny got involved, he really helped us structure everything all together nicely. We took rehearsing and pre production extremely seriously the way Nirvana did before tracking Nevermind and we are very proud of the raw live feeling that this album has. Though we are now a 4 piece band, for this process it was the 3 of us (Brend an, Yarden, Conner) so a lot of trios were in the back of our heads for inspiration (Failure, Nirvana, Dinosaur Jr), especially in the guitar category. It felt like picking a guitar up for the first time in some ways, trying to reinvent my regular playing style as much as I could.
