Merlin, a dear friend of mine, recently told me that nowadays you could record a whole album with just an iPad (and we all know he's right). And when you're done you can go on and design your own art work with this thing.
A few days later, he has sent me a cover he made for The New Cool (with his iPad, of course). And it's adorable, isn't it? I file it under «fan art».
Also, it's obvious which one is the new cool duck, right?
But in the end it isn't just a cover, it's all about those questions: Are we going to have a CD soon? Or is the EP the new CD? Is Vinyl worth the wait (in Switzerland you'll face a waiting time of at least six months, so you'd have to be well-organized)?
Also: How will the recording be done? In a proper studio? In our bedrooms with notebooks on our laps? I mean, you could also do recordings in a tent in the backyard of your parent's house, as Connan Mockasin did when he created «Forever Dolphin Love» (at least he claims it in this interview and I love to believe it).
Whatever and however, we are working on our new world order. And hopefully it will become part of yours too.
PS. Merlin is also Brut Bastard, a Barcelona based musician producing songs in his livingroom. Check his sounds on Bandcamp.
