Except not really. We started tracking basically the day after we returned from our West Coast tour in April, and spent about four days tracking at Hallowed Halls in Portland. We then spent an additional couple of days tracking at Everything Hz. We really enjoyed being back in the studio. We felt prepared, focused and really excited about the new material, especially after playing the songs live nightly for a few weeks on tour. Billy Anderson, engine-ear supreme was fired up and invested and inspired us to push ourselves in getting the takes we wanted, and obviously crucial in getting the sounds we wanted on tape.
This time around we were able to demo the songs as a band in our practice space. We put a lot of effort into revising and massaging songs to get them to sound the way we heard them in our heads. Demoing allowed the four of us to work through all our ideas and make the necessary changes before heading into the studio, so we went in with a clear picture of what we hoped to achieve.
The second biggest difference was being able to tour the record beforehand. Prior to Eben joining in June of , we were rarely in a position where we could tour. Knowing the material and being able to hammer it out in a live setting allowed us to bottle that energy and bring it to the studio. We made it a point to listen to our gut during the entire writing and recording process, but still allowed the songs take on a life of their own and let them dictate where to go with them, if that makes sense… The songs are darker, more epic there are five songs on this record but the overall runtime is longer than our first album, which had seven , and more emotionally reflective of what the band has been through in the last years.
Trent immersed himself in his playing and has evolved immensely as a player. Nick Furgiuele, Peter Furgiuele, Pete DeLorenzo and Chris Kaufmann, the members of Gringo Star travel on the other side of the consideration, where there's nothing that's been so much as even slightly deciphered about the female, its form or what they'll do next. They sing about women in that black magic sense where we wouldn't be surprised to see or hear about them doing anything.
These women are full of magic. They might even glow - light coming out of their ears and out of their eyes. They are dangerous and potentially deceitful -- still, but they have a greater capacity for evoking wonderment and awe than the women that Bukowski seems to attract or be attracted to. These are the main subjects of any Gringo Star song and they are pulled off with a beautiful skuzzy energy that makes these encounters feel as if they happened in the back alleys or they struck men backwards off of their shredded bar stools in those holes in the wall that they frequent during their happy hours, trying to get drunk before dinnertime.
There are parts to these songs that sound as they happen to men not all that unlike the guy that Bukowski might have started off as, but these Gringo Stars are on a different path, one that will leave them happy waking up next to that same great woman that they've been going to bed with for years and years.
Given a similar situation, Bukowski would have thrown up. Jason Webley will be performing at the Drunken Unicorn on Saturday, May 28th i live in a little floating house on the river. She adds to her songs a unique array of embellishments, whistles, and mouth-clicks, and a lyrical sensibility both intelligent and whimsical. Adron plays her nylon string guitar with the casually adept flourish of a Bossa Nova maestro twice her age. This becomes more impressive when we learn that the majority of these songs were originally written when she was fifteen and sixteen years old.
One can easily sense that this debut is but the first notable stirring of an expansive musical journey to come. He began playing drums at age nine, then picked up guitar and piano in his teen years and began writing instrumentals. Over the years, accordion, toy piano, electric piano, chord organs, glockenspiel, melodica, banjo and other noise makers have worked their way into his repertoire.
His debut full-length album She Traded Her Leg Lona Records, was received to great acclaim and supported by an international tour, including dates in Hong Kong, Paris, and across the United States.
His follow up release, The Garden of Scissors continues in the imaginitive musical collagework of his prior release while expanding on new ground, including collaborations with Sanni Baumgaertner of Dancer vs. Broadcast Live Free. Eryn Woods "Holl. Woods" cd release show is Friday, May 27th. Her musical pedigree includes five years of vocal training and over 12 years of combined musical study. Vincent and Uffie.
Sky Hy on Facebook with Sydney Slain on the ones and twos. Angie at the time decided to give up DJing about 4 years ago. It was a VERY expensive hobby. But about 2 years, Angie couldn't ignore the desire to make people move and to share her unique sound for music with others.
Retooling with a digital rig, Angie started playing out and making money this time in April of Now as Sydney Slain, she plays regularly at clubs around Atlanta and shares her unique ear for dance music with all sorts of people. Retro Sushi will be performing on Thursday, May 26th, After a listen of the lp, I was very much impressed with the production of it as a whole.
The beat selections are perfect, they give off a real calm riding around Atlanta on a sunny day feel. To me that is good music. Listening to the lyrics Jace and Ceej deliver well written verses on pretty every track with clever punchlines, thought provoking references, and good mix of storytelling. I suggest if you like hip hop music you give it a listen.
Demond Toney, known to many as "Da Dreamer," is arousing the music world, stirring up excitement and interest in the hearts of all Hip Hop lovers. Embodying a sound large enough to fill the Phillips Arena, his music is the perfect concoction of rhythmic lyrics, sharp chords, and synthesized ballads.
His music is reminiscent of the the laid back ballads and street critiquing lyrics of the Grammy Award winning, Outkast. With Stankonia Studios being a second home to Da Dreamer, and Outkast's Andre Benjamin his inspiration and mentor, its refreshing to know that the great feeling of "cruising the ATL music" is creeping back into the scene.
With the infamous "Snap Music Craze" slowing dying down, hopefuls alike will be glad for the change Da Dreamer will bring this Summer. The Dreamer's mission is to elevated music without leaving anyone behind Atlanta is on the break of some elite next level artist they know who they are Vibrate higher!!!!
Dont get left behind. Dreamer of Hollyweerd on Bandcamp Gripplyaz is the second performer. The perfect combination of Old Atl and the next generation of Atl.. But all ATL all the time. Gripplyaz on Facebook A-1 The Supergroup will be performing first. Cam told me that his crew had some heat, but I definitely can see this anthem in heavy rotation within the Atlanta area and beyond.Listen to your favorite songs from Soft Opening by Mathis Hunter Now.
