I had a lot of fun picking out the tracks for this mix. Everything reminds me of the weird feeling you get when walking around drunk in the city in the middle of the night trying to get home, or when you're driving down a highway during a rainy day.
Transition at 9:35-ish was one of my favorites, though I think it would be better if I transitioned faster, and changed the volume levels of Little People - Aldgate Patterns.
The Bedside Demos is the unmastered, unmixed, rough and far from perfect collection of songs from Nick Riley that he has written over the course of the past year or two. Out of the 60+ songs Nick's written these are the ones that he has got round to recording in his bedroom.
A lot of the songs have changed; not only in their sound but also their lyrical content.
Many of the songs won't ever be played live.
But they're here in their most unadulterated form to hear.
Please excuse mistakes, noticeable changes in accent, volume, tone etc. as these are the accumulation of two years writing and Nick has developed as a singer over this time.

Lion City Brass In Concert: Kaleidoscope! (World Premiere)
Conducted by Music Director ME4 Ignatius Wang
10 June 2018, Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music Concert Hall
Commissioned by the Lion City Brass Band under its music director, ME4 Ignatius Wang, Of Orchids and Crimson Sunbirds: Sights of the Lion City-State is a musical piece composed to portray the scenic impressions of the imagery of the Republic of Singapore. The title is metaphorical – Orchids being the national flower since 1981, while the Crimson Sunbird has been nominated as the unofficial national bird of Singapore.
The work illustrates and centralises around three imagery titled within the music as such: Singapore Skyline, City In A Garden and Cultural Diversity. Each short movement presents the musical interpretation of the composer’s impression on the iconic sights of the nation. Intermittently juxtaposed with familiar local tunes, the piece culminates in a recapitulation of the central motifs of the work.
Singapore Skyline (0' 05")
Piece opens in Bb major. First subject at bar 3. Extension of first subject (i.e. new idea) at fig. D, towards the end juxtaposed with the opening verse from We Are Singapore. At fig. E, bass line closes the section with an augmented motif of the first subject, and ends the phrase with the closing of the verse from Munnaeru Vaalibaa.
City In a Garden (1' 50")
In the dominant key of F major. Second subject presented in the solo Euphonium. At fig. G, the same material becomes the secondary voice while a harmonic variant takes over as the melody. The section builds to its harmonic climax as it modulates into the next section by bridging the Neapolitan 6th of the old key (i.e. F major) to the German 6th of the new key (i.e. Db major).
Cultural Diversity (2' 59")
Fugal passage builds in perfect 5ths from the motif from the first subject, to a variant on the opening of the second subject and lastly to the melody from the chorus of Di Tanjong Katong. The contrapuntal interplay signifies the combination of cultural identities that defines the nation. The passage ends in a final modulation back to the tonic key (i.e. Bb major).
Sights of the Lion City-State (3' 45")
The final section is not an image-impression by itself but a recapitulation of the first subject. Instead of moving into its extended phrase, the passage moves into the finale using the second subject.
