Lo-fi recordings

Postby guysmiley » Fri May 22, 2015 12:10 pm

I was listening to some old Janes for the first time in a long time. The records aren't that great by todays standards, and I kind of think it's great. I have a friend playing bass with me who is huge into garage rock. For real garage rock, with one mic. Lo-fi as fuck. Somehow the good songs hold up. The key being, "good songs". Guided by Voices type stuff. It seems I think I favor this sound. Even the old "hi-fi" sound, which now sounds old. I like the atmosphere it created. I'm really sick of polished music. The only exception might be with jazz or classical. Most my friends buy vinyl. While, I'm not that hardcore. I understand the push-back. I think these 1s and 0s are really taking something from us. I listen to less music on digital formats these days. Only on my bike with an ipod, which isn't always the best.
