so, now that the album is out and we're heading towards the end of the remix eps etc, no doubt all your minds, as mine is, are thinking about what our next album will be. as promised a few days ago in the car on the way home, this is a post to find out what people might think would be a good direction to go for the next major piece of work.
i have literally dozens of half finished songs/pieces of music (for bec's benefit) on my hard drive but, rather than just keep making things as they happen, i thought it might be nice to do something we've never really done which is to plan out a bit of a direction before we start. we may well use lots of things that already exist, but pushing them in a uniform direction would be good, i think.
soooo...what are some ideas people think we might pursue? some key words maybe? artists to look at? could be to do with the sounds, the lyrical themes, anything. should we all pick up new instruments and make a garage rock album? a folk album? an acappella album (raw or processed)? an all electronic instrumental album? something combining some of those?
would love to hear what everyone thinks...
