Midi Grrrl: Winter / Thin Ice / Recording a new song “Breeder”

The fact that it gets dark so early makes me feel jet lagged. After our last gig in Krakow, I picked up a cold that turned into a chest infection and spent a week in bed. The darkness has been quenching my energy. But there is also some sort of new patience. Everytime I make it out of the house is a triumph!

One thing I suddenly have increased patience for is cooking and making my apartment cosy.

The other is playing synth (I love tinkering with synth sounds but find it hard to do the necessary drills). Illness and ennui and this (seeming) constant darkness are forcing me to slow down. Is this hibernation? How on earth am I supposed to get through the next two months till spring?

sweet analogue action! <3[/caption] For the first time in forever, after months of turds that will never see the light of day, an interesting song is happening - and I'm recording it. It even has a title - "Breeder". It's pro-choice, but it's personal. I've laid some tracks down (beat, synth, vocals) and the next step is to mix it and get it mastered.
