It's Not A Traditional America Anymore

This was recorded in February 2013 for the RPM Challenge. It uses several YouTube samples from the days following Barack Obama's re-election in 2012. Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, and Bill O'Reilly complain that Obama's win is proof that the America they've known and loved is gone. "It's Not..." and "More Takers Than Makers" share these samples.

In addition to the docusamples, this recording uses lots of softsynths and virtual guitar amp plugins, all pulled together via the Cockos REAPER software. The operating system was Windows, and the audio interface was a Presonus FireBox. There are no songs here, and no microphones were used. I think this was the first Gliftor Draken album recorded at the Northern Warehouse in St. Paul, but I don't really remember recording it...
