After a lot of tweaking and a lot of anxiety, I finally released my first full-length album, Function Creep, in 2007. There are moments of patchy production but I'm still overall very pleased with it. It cemented my interest in finding interesting ways to deal with downtempo beats, constructing songs with electronic sounds that nevertheless sound warm and inviting rather than harsh, and getting around the technical problems of having very little equipment (virtually none, in fact, beyond my guitar and my computer).
While Function Creep is the title track, Target City is really the centrepiece of the album; it's a shoegaze-inspired song with a vast-but-distant wall of crumbling guitars and vocoded vocals, the latter of which I went on to use quite a bit more, as I think they sound great. Other tracks on the album stand alone well, but it really works best, like most of my stuff, listened to from beginning to end.
