There are three concept EPs on this page (five songs each) . Country Porn, Songs for Pussies, and Wackin It are their titles. They were fun to make. Download any of the EPs for FREE at davesmith.bandcamp.com.
These records were made to simply have fun. Much of the material is first takes and such as perfection wasn't ever the intention, but more to solidify a vibe for each EP. I can't throw enough praise to my friends Keith (drums+mixing) and Casper (guitar and much of the keys)... they are righteous dudes who rock oh so hard.
Here's more info than you probably want...
Country Porn was partially conceived while writing music for movies (see reverbnation.com/ghostbox). I found restrictions on musical, genre, tempo, lyrical issues quite liberating in a way. Songs seem to write themselves when given parameters and deadlines... Then it hit me, I thought it would be cool to make a record (or in this case EP) called Country Porn. What would Country Porn sound like? Well, it sounds like Country Porn. I made Country Porn.
Having written much of Country Porn in my head I started thinking about another record to work on... I wanted to do something kinda soft and ballad-y. I work with many singer songwriter types who are really cool and I wanted to bring in that energy. Something I may have made fun of in my teenage years. So I wrote Songs For Pussies. Songs for Pussies incorporates my soft side with some of my less traditional bass techniques (harmonics, chords, etc). That said they weren't intended to be done in a flashy manner. Its just Songs For Pussies.
As I said I play with many bands (some samples can be found at reverbnation.com/davesmithbass). As awesome as it is holding down the low end, I did spend years of time working on stupid bass chops. I wanted to make a record that was mostly selfish, spotlight on the bass, silly bass playing music. I made Wackin It. It's just what it is... A self serving, bass nerd record. It was fun to make Wackin It. I don't regret Wackin It.
Hit me up with questions or the desire to collaborate.
