In case you missed it, there was a public radio performance for yours truly last Saturday. It was a fun filled 3 hour romp with RadioBuzzd. Talk about a mobile radio station. They’re capable of broadcasting from about anywhere, it’s pretty wild. The cool thing about it was, I was the first artist on a brand new show at a brand new location for them. A new series they’re whipping up all about showcasing cool LA music. Kinda nice that I got to kick it off.
Yesterday ended up being a day of getting things done around the house. A day off from the music. Aside from normal chores, I started a project where I’m going to be repainting the doors and trim around the interiors. Off to Home Depot I went to get the needed items to get it going. I started with a single door to figure out how difficult it would be to remove the paint. Turns out when you the proper tools it can be pretty easy. It’s not a fast process, but based on what I was told about it, it’s not nearly as hard as I was led to believe. I do think that I’ll be able to complete one door in a day if I do nothing else.
Being that I started my first door very late in the afternoon, I literally got paint off only one side. Once I get the rest of the paint off, which should be later today, I’ll prep the door for painting.
All that will come after I deal with a lunch meeting about a cover song. I’ve been asked to do a song for a trailer for a new movie. It will be a remake of an old classic. They want it to be modern and cool. Something I can do. I’m not sure exactly what to expect in the lunch but I will be ready for what they throw at me.
Speaking of music, let’s get to today’s choice.
Since I’m working on heating paint up and scraping it off I have to run with a track called Slow Burn by The Batteries Duo. It was brought to my attention a little while ago from a friend of an artist that I recently featured on Single of the Day. Funny how that works right? Essentially the process of reversing the effects of dried paint is bit like the sounds you’re hearing here. It’s a long slow process and if you’re not careful you can either burn the paint, burn the wood, or burn yourself. I didn’t really burn the paint, but I came close to scorching the wood and there were a couple of times where I came close to burning my fingers. Not like in this song where it’s a bit more mellow. More like the time it was taking.
The bubbling nature of the song sorta reminds me of watching the paint magically bubble up when heat is applied in a very direct manner. Each time it’s a little different, much like how this track evolves over time.
Yes it’s a bit esoteric to what I normally bring to the table here at Single of the Day, but hey, I was feeling it and it related directly to something I’m doing. So you enjoy and that’s an order.
