Not every artist follows the usual modern methods of making music. Eschewing traditional, high-quality studio recording techniques, Homemade recordings are just that -- often made in the basement or living room of the artist's home, affording a certain creative freedom. In a home studio with a Homemade budget, nothing -- not taste, limited recording time, nor the concerned advice of a fellow band member or producer -- needs to hold an artist back. A Homemade artist like Jandek would likely never have made a second album, let alone the 25+ he's released over the years, without the freedom to go off the deep end in his home studio. Homemade artists often make up with heart and soul what they lack in polished professionalism. Even some of rock's heavy hitters recorded albums at home, like Bruce Springsteen's Nebraska and Bob Dylan's The Basement Tapes. If you're looking for the truly bizarre, Homemade music is often the motherlode.
