Ever wonder about the instructions for using Shampoo? Lather, rinse, repeat. Rather curious. I’m not sure how many people ever repeat the repeat step. I don’t believe I can recall ever washing my hair twice in a row. Even more curious is the idea that it doesn’t tell you how often to repeat. Could there be someone out there that empties an entire bottle of shampoo in one shower, all because of the “repeat” instruction? Is it something you’ve ever thought of?
In relation to cleaning – I’m knee deep in the midst of reworking the studio. Stuff is off the walls and I’m waiting on materials coming from back east to put up on them. It’s a matter of cleaning up the sound here in my studio. It’s yet another link in the chain of experience. I suppose it means I’m really starting to get beyond the production concepts and moving towards being able to hear things as they should translate. That’s a pretty big step. At least I think so. It should make mixing a lot easier in the long run.
Today’s song came recommended to me by James Casto. What a good guy he is eh? Making some good recommendations on music. First with Whiskey Brown and now with Sabrina. I would deem this little ditty to be something along the lines of say pop soul. It’s got a good bounce. A snappy guitar line. The drums feel smart within the groove that is being laid down. The bass is playing in it’s space with a conservative line that supports the harmony without being overpowering on the groove.
In the chorus I like the string hits that jump in there. It gives a hint of urgency to the song. Must’nt leave out the organ providing some pad like effect in there as well. Hmmm… being that I’m calling out all these instruments its fairly obvious that the mix is very well put together and quite clean. All in the effort to support the vocal which is certainly out there and driving the song. I really like the rhythm of the chorus with the vocal. Pulling in more divisions with more rests in between the phrases. It’s a catchy thing to do with the lines.
We all need a little cleansing sometimes. Feel good and clean when you purchase the song and add it to your iPod or MP3 player. I bet Sabrina will wear a smile in her next shower knowing you bought it!
