The Acronyms - "Ratio" (new album) 2012-10-31 23:46:10 Reply

Hey guys, I know it's not customary to post these things (without backlash) but I wanted to take a shot and post about this album we've been working on for the last year-and-a-half.

This album is entirely self-produced using a MacBook Pro, an Akai MPK25 midi controller, a Tascam US-122mkII audio interface and some instruments. We used Logic Pro as our DAW. On the album I played guitars, bass, keys and sang almost everything. My friend Sam programmed all the drums and my friend Travis played the saxophone. It is a studio project but one we're quite proud of...

A few weeks ago, I asked for some help coming up with the cover art. I knew NG would be the perfect place to find someone. I was right. Ludic and bird-man both quickly responded to my request and delivered something phenomenal. For the record, anybody looking for professional quality work for your music, contact these guys. J-qb also initially provided some help, but I believe he was injured and couldn't continue. I thank all of you for your help.

The album will be available to stream on NG for anybody to listen. I think you'll be able to download it, if you'd like. The album will also be on sale through all major online music stores (itunes, amazon, etc.) including Bandcamp. Please help support us if you can, we're trying to raise funds to create physical copies of the album.

Okay, I'm done blathering. I just wanted to thank the NG community for helping us make this a reality. I look forward to working with all of you in the future, in whatever capacity, for whatever kind of project.

[Front Album Cover was designed by Ludic]

The album is available on NG for streaming/downloading and can be found here:

[NOTE: due to an uploading error, the album's not quite in order - the first tracks are at the bottom. Sorry...]

Nice artwork, the figure depicted in the album cover reminds me of Slender Man.

In case Jarry and the Purginator don't cut you any slack, just wanted to say that your bandcamp link's broken!

It's strange, I click the link and I get the page. However, only a few songs are on there. What are you getting?

Guys, thank you so much for your responses. We've been receiving a lot of great feedback for the album and it really means a lot to us. Sorry for the technical difficulties when I first posted everything.

Lasse, I know you said you were listening to it and were enjoying the music. I'm curious, what don't you like about the cover?
