My work on my EP has been moving along very well. Dux has been really killing it with the producer thing. I'm very glad to have gotten the chance to bring him on board.

Something I've learned from him is that special effects (like adding reverbs, delays, EQs, compressors, and all that colorful audio trickery) should be used sparingly. I think I had the tendency early on to put those effects on every track of every song, constantly trying to take the sound further and further away from its origin. But it turns out, the richest sounds to have in audio are usually not very manipulated. I've toned down the level of audio effects lately, trying to focus more on the quality of the original sound instead.

I think I may be seeing a release date in May for the EP.
