I have a rare quiet morning and I've been listening to and transcoding the current crop of tunes in development.
In particular i'm enjoying another reggae style thing.
The correct way to phrase our ongoing output is that there's no one to stop us. Mr Wizard calls it 'pursuit of the undeniable'.
Our sometime producer and patron Mr Doherty and I have chuckled over the concept of 'more than we can afford to record'. Yikes. We've gotten a taste of Primo Studio Goodness and there's no way back man, no way, you don't know what it's like...err..
So yep. With Everywhere Feels Like Home 2 songs away from going in the can, then mastering, pressing, releasing oh boy...Meanwhile, we'd like to go get the next batch of songs recorded so we can get on with writing the current crop.
Watching the evolution of the songwriting has been fascinating.
I've mentioned the battle between complexity and simplicty before. Mr Wizard takes his cues from the modernity of limited attention spans, the need for change. This clashes with the hypnotic groove factor that we draw from the Blues and world music styles. Bill loves the complexity because he's a hardcore Jazz enthusiast. Theo favours more energy than less where possible. Rosie likes long outtros with beautiful simple fills.
As for me?
I say put all the ideas in a particle accelerator, fire them into each other and watch what flies out! It's tension, it's drama, it's awesome and i get to listen to it as the songs start, collide with new ideas, explode, reform and collide again. I can't share these dang things till we get them recorded...oh well..come to a gig and hear them in development.
