Zeal – With the Moon Alongside Racing Us Home
So this has been out for a little while now but my website updates are few and far etc. I think this is a truly excellent album and I’m pretty pleased that I had a small part in making it.
Zeal is Robert Jarvis, an Adelaide human who is now a Melbourne human. He makes good music and does lots of interesting stuff, like making musical instruments out of toys and visa versa.
Here’s what I did on the album, according to the bandcamp site: Additional mixing on track 4, drums and percussion on track 7, drums, clapping, jeans, bass drum, programming and additional mixing on track 8.
Check out all the cool stuff that Robert does: Singing, nylon/electric guitar, electric/upright bass, piano, pedal organ, harmonium, melodica, sampling, sequencing, stomping, clapping, drumming, humming, self-oscillating delay pedal, alarm clock, banjo, ukulele, playstation 2, glockenspiel, toy piano, casio.
I think that gives you a better idea of what the album sounds like than some broad or made-up genres (likeacousticcy electro-pop groove jazz-hop-wave or something).
