Description of the track:
Hello! We are Redfield, we are at Post-Rock/Shoe-gaze/Instrumental duo from Portsmouth, UK.
We met at university and messed around with making music, but only started to take it a bit more seriously in the last 6 months or so. So far, all our songs and live shows have been pretty well received!
"More and More about Less and Less" is a song we recorded in our house, using only GarageBand, a pretty nasty Behringer soundcard, and Korg Effects processor. It's pretty typical of our style, long washy passages, loads of ambience and the song ultimately becoming a lengthy build and climax. We are really pleased with the results, and believe it's our best produced track. GarageBand is surprisingly a quite powerful DAW, and we don't see ourselves needing to upgrade anytime soon.
Both of us are primarily guitar players, we don't have the resources (or ability!) to play and record drums, so they were produced using a combination of GarageBand's virtual instruments and samples. As you can probably hear, we love reverb and delay, since recording we have brought 4 reverb and delay effect units so we can recreate these huge sounds in our live shows, which have been a lot of fun playing.
