Why did you decide on these six songs out of all of your songs?

I realized that I have like, way more songs than six, but I'm kind of conscious of working on too many at once and having them accidentally end up being kind of the same or something. And with most of them I feel like I could improve them if I have more time to think about things. I don't want to rush anything. These ones are the ones I kind of like the most right now, I guess because they're all finished!

These are all great songs. 'Our Antarctic Friends' is one of my old favourites.

I listened to this entire EP, and I really like it.  The mixing is a little lo-fi, but since when has that ever been too terribly bad when good music was the focus?  Thumbs up.

this is pretty alright! I think the second to last song falls flat and the lo-fi sound sounds more like a "hey lets record this as cheaply as possible" idea more than a "hey lets make this sound lo-fi" idea (which is obviously totally understandable if not less distracting for it) but I definitely like it. Thanks for sharing.

I realised the other day that many of these songs have the same kind of infectious, harmonic quality as songs penned by Kim Deal around the time of the early Breeders records etc.

Not coincidentally, these are also some of my favourite songs ever.

use kickstarter. A friend of mine raised a few thousand bucks to pay for the recording of her new album on kickstarter and it was totally effortless. Just make some donation tiers with cool stuff like a copy of the CD with customized artwork or a personalized song or whatever attached to each and you're good to go.

This would be a bad environment for Anna's technique.

Also, I really like the production or lack of on these songs. That is one of the best things about them.

dear younger anna, i have no idea why it took me this long to start listening to yr tunes. i guess it's because i haven't really been in the mood for sad lo-fi indie pop or whatever. i don't really find em sad though, just mellow and pretty.

keep up the good work. i will buy this album when i'm less broke.

love,
older anna

I am just a bit confused by this. Can this possibly be a bad thing? Something in me sort of balks at the idea of deliberately going for a lo-fi sound as if DIY was just some recording gimmick.


Also, goddamn nice tunes.

yeah, if you have a condenser mic and a decent dynamic mic, you're pretty much set. also i think programs get simpler when you get into the paid category, since audacity is designed for like linux nerds who really hate things being intuitive

thank you for all your nice words, everyone! they are appreciated more than you know.

also i'm very amused that so many people are like "where is this song" like i forgot that i'm not actually THAT unproductive. i'll get around to reworking older stuff soooon but i gotta finish this dumb quarter first! here's some Fun Links: http://www.box.net/shared/saa00ax0d2

...okay well i guess that was only one fun link, but that has some old stuff (i moved some other things out, though) and most of the random ass covers i've been doing in my dorm room out of frustration, and the older ones too.

and my buddy has this wonderful lil' digitech processor with a bunch of effects he programmed himself. i don't really know how to work it but i found some nice reverb. i didn't have an extra cable to run it through my amp but i had the jack converter so i just ran it through my speakers. so i did this. lykke li has been my idol lately. i kind of want to be her
