This has been a pet project of mine.

Like many of you, I loved the music on Way To Normal, but strongly disliked the way that the album had been produced. I've always disliked brickwall mastering and the overuse and misuse of compression in music over the last 10-15 years, but the production of this album made me rethink what "bad" was. Stems & Seeds came along, and I was disappointed to find that while it was slightly toned down, it still sounded pretty crushed and didn't reflect what the music should have sounded like.

In 2014, I started mixing together the stems from Stems & Seeds, and got some basic mixes together. I posted one or two of those mixes to Reddit at the time. In mid-late 2015, I started experimenting with mastering— that is to say, equalizing and generally tweaking the mixes to make them sound as good as they possibly can.

It's taken me quite a while, but I now have a self-produced copy of Way To Normal which, to me at least, sounds quite nice. I'm in the process of uploading it to YouTube for easy access. Hopefully you all enjoy it as well.
