Buenos dias from Playa Del Carmen!

Good news!

I finished the new album on Tuesday at 3:30 am.

AT LAST!
 
It has been an Homerian undertaking indeed, as it's the first full album I've recorded since leaving my studio in Texas. I started working on this album in our first Air BnB in Cancun, and finished it in the far more salubrious surroundings of our second, here in Playa Del Carmen, where I am blessed with functioning internet, and excellent coffee!!
 
Making albums in AirBnBs is harder than making albums in fully equipped studios, for many reasons. I don't have studio monitors, so instead I work in headphones, and my laptop cannot handle anything close to the level of musical complexity my super computer back in the studio can manage. All in all, things are taking me 5 to 10 times as long to do in this set up than they would in the studio, and there are a lot of things I simply CANNOT DO...
 
The good thing, as always, is that limitation breeds innovation, and I've developed some new techniques to counteract some of these issues, which have lead to some amazing new music that simply would not have existed in any other scenario.
 
Indeed, that I can make music here AT ALL is a bloody miracle. And that it's ended up being some of the best music I've ever made is a testament to the power of Hyper-productivity X Zone-inhabitation X Bloody-minded-refusal-to-give-up-ever-no-matter-the-circumstance.
 
It astonishes me every day what can be accomplished here in the future, and I am giddy with gratitude... that is when I'm not cursing at the laptop for not being able to handle my Spectorian levels of ambition at all times. I oscillate wildly between these two places, and that seems to be about right to me.
 
We have come so far, but we have so much further to go. The things we are gonna see in our lifetime will transcend Arthurian notions of the scope of Magic. 
 
¡Qué tiempo para estar vivo!
 
¡Ama a ti y a tu familia!
