Atlas Sound - Christian Names
This is a picture I took of myself when I was like 19 and very stoned. I included it with this song because it sounds like something I would have recorded back then. It's kind of a throw-away tune. I was playing around earlier tonight recording drums and something happened and my Motu Ultralite audio interface fell on the ground and died. I was in tears. Then, thanks to Mr. Kranky, I went and bought a new one. When I got it home I decided to finish the song I was recording drums for without using any effects or delay or anything and just use microphones plugged straight into the new Ultralite. Lately I have been recording guitars direct and running them through Amp simulators and stuff but this song is just the sound of drums and amps and my room. I wouldn't really do anything with it, but I thought I'd let you guys here it.
keep my name close at hand my christian name keeps me safe it keeps me crowned once a year i leave my room and go downtown to see what i'm missing once a year i go downtown i'm not missing much
my christian name keeps me safe it keeps me guessing what comes next what comes next the past is boring but i don't expect much else the past is boring but i expect the present tense it keeps me sane
we know what your thinking now what does it mean to not move and move around what does it mean to not think and make no sounds to not speak and what it means to keep your ground steady beneath your feet
the ground is steady beneath my feet i know i know
