This album came just at the right time, I've been listening to so much super energy J-fusion lately I needed something chilled out to counterbalance, the bass sounds in this are ridiculous and I absolutely love the guitar playing.
Thanks so much! Really been trying to focus more on bass and groove lately so this means a lot!
Her: Send me that song. Me: Omg yes immediately Her: lol
<drift stage bandcamp link> Me: Last song exclusive coupe Me: This dude is such a beast, I saw him at magwest 2 years ago and he joined theshizz because we wouldn't shut up about him lol Me: And that song has become one of my new favorites. It's. SO. GOOD. Her: I'll listen to it laterrr Me: I think you'll like it, it's really quite magnificently composed and the chorus is so catchy I get chills every time. Plus the impeccable playing. Dude's a hottie, too. I'd fuck that guy. Her: Lololol Her: Send me a pic
<insert bandcamp photo> Her: STOP Her: THAT IS NOT A REAL MAN Me: Hahaha, I told you Me: See, this is why I have to be funny Her: Like wtf
Yeah in the end this is all bullshit that doesn't actually matter anyway, we're talking about differences of 0-5% at best, which are irrelevant in a mix or on stage, but to the guy who bought a $6000 Les Paul and $4000 plexi and a set of legendary $250/each NOS Heinz Tubes they made that in 1955 when there was a tomato shortage it's the most important difference in the world.
"Honey you don't understand these are THE tubes Jimmy [Page] used in his first ever session recording that was lost and nobody's ever heard but the producer was quoted as saying it sounded like [some stupid metaphor about a horny woman and nostalgia] and that's the impossible idea I'm spending all our money searching for instead of learning to play guitar!"
I Did the all of the beat and sort of helped with the lyrics but my friend Nicole did 99.9999999% of them and came up with the concept. It was originally for a Ciara pitch (hence the references to Atlanta). Ciara passed and but the A+R at the pub company I was signed to at the time pitched it to Avex and they loved it. I assumed they were gonna translate the lyrics but in this case they left them.
A lot of people from the west do Jpop/Kpop, more than I think most people realize. When I went to Korea in September for a Camp I think at least half of the writers and producers were from outside of Korea. Usually lyrics are written in English and then if the song gets placed a lyricist will write Japanese or Korean lyrics.
