April Skies (fake live recording)

I was experimenting with ways to set up a live recording configuration in my practice space for Wizard Van to record some songs. To test it out, I went around and recorded each part of this song myself through all the mics. I did the vocals and rhythm guitar at the same time, with the vocals going through the PA and everything at rehearsal volume so I could hear how much bleed I was dealing with. Came out sounding like a decent board recording at a small club. Was tempted to overdub the half-hearted sounds of disaffected bar patrons, but didn't.
