Kill the Buffalo Single Releasing Soon!


Awwww yeah. That’s right. My new song “Kill the Buffalo” is ready to be heard! If you like your songs heavy, about specific clothing patterns, shortish, and a tad strange, “Kill the Buffalo” is for you!

Creating this song has been quite the experience for me. My goal with these upcoming songs is to pay more attention to certain aspects and less attention to other aspects compared to my older songs. I’ll get into all that stuff in a later post.

Oh, you wanted to know when you’ll be able to listen to “Kill the Buffalo?” Sure, I’ll tell you. The release date is April 28th, 2017. Hey, that’s less than 4 weeks away! Can you believe it?! And if all goes as planned, there will be an accompanying video to go along with it. Then…maybe a full-length album will be imminent…

Fun times. Let’s do this crap.

Hey, I haven’t posted in a while. “Kill the Buffalo” is very close to being done. I’m trying to get it sound really good, namely the drums and guitars. Previously I had mentioned (I think) that I recorded a bunch of guitar tracks. Normally that means the guitars sound big and awesome. But when you use the same guitar with the same amp and effects, it may sound big, not maybe not so awesome. So I’m going to re-record the guitar a few more times with different guitars and/or effects, so that it will sound big and awesome.

What else am I doing? I don’t know. Hm. I did sift through all the musical projects I’ve started in the last couple of years to see what I have to work with. There are probably 20 good-sounding songs that are basically done except for the vocals. So my plan is to listen to the songs, get inspired, and throw vocals on them. That makes it sound less well-thought-out than it actually will be, but that’s what it’ll amount to in a sense.

So yeah, that’s what’s going on. “Kill the Buffalo” will be out when it’s ready. And then my next album will be out…later this year…maybe?

Jam Session #11

Listen to my new drums! I made a short drum loop and played some guitar over it. A new guitar-recording tactic was put into place, and this is the end result.

Part of me would love to make more music like this. Like, more metal or whatever. If I could figure out how to vocalize over it, I would definitely do it more. The drums aren’t perfect either, but they sound more…authentically metal, probably. This is 3 minutes of mostly the same riff, but there’s a couple other parts in there too somewhere. What do you think of it?

The Making of “Kill the Buffalo”


Today I am going to talk about what went into creating my newest masterpiece, “Kill the Buffalo.” I’m super excited about it. Sometime last year, I began to notice people at work wearing lumberjack-style shirts. Affectionately called Buffalo Plaid, the design of these now-trendy shirts irked me. Why are all these people wearing such a stereotypically Canadian lumberjack pattern? I mean, it’s not an exceptionally good looking design. I don’t know, but they still do it, and that’s why I’m making a song about it. Continue reading “The Making of “Kill the Buffalo””

Jam Session #10

Well, well, well, Jam Session #10. It’s fitting to celebrate this milestone with a taste of an effing awesome song early in development. As always with these, the sound quality isn’t the best. More often than not, it’s recorded in an open-air environment with the Music Memos iOS app. I did add a little EQ and such to the beginning to make the rest of the song stand out more, and I overlapped the drum track over the live recording so you could hear them better. But it’s essentially a live recording. It’s difficult to tell probably, but I’m using new drum samples. Very metal.

I do have an idea of what I want this song to become, like lyrically and conceptually, but I’m not sure yet. All I know is that when that riff starts at about 9 seconds in…I’m feeling it! It’s nothing groundbreaking obviously, but it’s a style or feeling that I don’t think I’ve explored as much as I’ve wanted. Then the verses turn into a jackhammering type thing, which I’m excited to figure out how to vocalize over. I need to find some words that rhyme with “plaid.” Bad, mad, sad, fad…hm…

Anyway, what do you think?

It’s time for another random blog post! It’s been too long since the last one. While on Christmas break at work, I had hoped I’d be able to work on a lot of music. That didn’t happen. Between not having as lengthy of a break as usual and screwing up my left thumb, putting guitar riffs together is something I couldn’t manage very well. My thumb still hurts. I don’t know what I did to it. Hm. Continue reading “Random Blog Post #13”

Robby Reviews the Year 2016


It’s New Year’s Eve! Once upon a time, this was my favorite holiday. Now…it’s not. Anyway, I did one of these Year-in-Review things last year, and it was kind of fun. I read, watched, and played a lot more stuff this year than last year, so this should be more interesting to write and read.

Books, movies, video games, and books are the things that I am ranking here. Nothing else matters, not even the presidential election. Like last year, I’ll give my top 3 picks for each category in no particular order, probably. Continue reading “Robby Reviews the Year 2016”

The Making of Merry Effing Christmas


Hey, did you know I’m releasing a Christmas song called “Merry Effing Christmas” this Friday? You didn’t? Oh, well, I am. I announced it a week ago. Where have you been?

Yes, this Friday, December 16th, 2016, this little song called “Merry Effing Christmas” by Robby Suavé will be available for you to buy, stream, steal, or ignore! Work on it began in late October if my memory serves me correctly. As is probably predicted by anyone, working on a Christmas song in October is strange. While everyone was getting dressed up as vampires and witches, gobbling up candy, having fun and whatever, I was holed up at my computer, constructing a song about Christmas instead. Not that I didn’t have fun making the song of course, but…it’s complicated. Continue reading “The Making of Merry Effing Christmas”
