Recorded this last night at practice. A macbook pro and a blue usb mic.
Nothing groundbreaking sound wise but it gets the message across.

If you like it please like Mr Personality on Facebook.

Input here will be greatly appreciated. This is a small sample of what we have brewing.

Here's the set up. Yes, that is a floor tom converted to a kick drum. Perfect for a small room.

I'm an older guy, so not my style at all. But I thought it was interesting. Did you do that vocal totally live, or did you have to piece it together. If I took meth, I couldn't talk/sing that fast. LOL Good luck to you. I hope you find musical success. Music is so much fun.

Thanks man!

We recorded the band all together and then did the vocals as a Seperate track. The main vocal track is one take with a second added for doubling the chorus. I put a megaphone effect on the back up vocal and a tiny bit of verb and delay on the whole thing.
It is a very basic Garageband recording.

Also, we are not specifically a rap group. Our singer does very little rapping and primarily sings on the rest of our music. This tune was the most ready so I posted it first. There is some heavy rock, funk, reggae, and jammy stuff to come.

Shawn, it sort of reminded me of RHCPs. Kinda like an auctioneer. I am not into rap at all, but the cadence the singer was doing impressed me that he could do it that fast. I started recording with Garageband. I moved to Logic Express soon after. Keep at it. It is so much fun, and I have done stuff that wasn't in my normal range of music, and found it even more fun than staying my comfort spot.

Thank you all!

Highly influenced by bands like Faith no more, Alice in Chains, and Quotsa!

I put the song on with through my PC speakers, which I never do (I'm a headphones guy) and my cat was like "WTF?" So, FWIW, your song elicits reactions from cats.
