I was sorting through the ol’ hard drive(s) today and happened upon some music that I wrote for a project a couple of years ago which, sadly, never saw the light of day.
I don’t remember much about writing this other than thinking that I wanted the quiet, chuggy guitar to sound just like the quiet, chuggy guitar in O.M.D.’s “If You Leave“. The interesting thing there being that I gave “If You Leave” a listen this morning for the first time in a while and it doesn’t appear to have any guitar — or, if it does, it’s not doing what I thought it was doing. I guess we can file that under: How the Creative Process Works [sometimes].
As with many of the fun musical adventures I’ve embarked upon in recent history, I was joined by Noell Dorsey, who was kind enough to stop by for an hour of light “Bop-bop-bop”s.[audio:http://www.joelroston.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/Fort-Calm.mp3|titles=Fort Calm]
