January 2013 - Adrian's Inspiration Mixtape

A bunch of tracks that I think could be useful for ideas of how to go about making music for our new songs. Many are there because I like the way they combine very disjointed things together to make cohesive music. After thinking about it for a few months, the song that does it best is actually very old - Strawberry Fields Forever. It's so familiar that it often just washes over us now. But listen to it. The lyrics are strange and don't fit. The melody is all over the shop. And the music changes completely every 15 seconds, one sound then another then another, nothing ever really staying around for long. Yet it all hangs together as possibly my favourite song of all time. That's what I'd most like to achieve.

From there, the rest are kind of variations on that theme, or sounds, rhythms that are odd. Some don't work melodically, but are stunning sonically. I like them all.
