What it’s all about, really.

About a week ago, @jaredfalkdrummer reached out to me on Instagram- he was offering features to three drumers and I was absolutely blown away to be chosen as one of them!! He requested a video be sent to him, so I jumped behind the kit and this is what I smashed out! Big thanks to my good friend @jonnyboydmusichouse for the sweet Elec. Piano backing! 🙌🏻

- Funky and fresh and laid back. Like they're just kicking it. Even in interviews and press releases, they're just like "yeah, we're just doing what we enjoy." Its a tangible quality that adds so much joy to the record. See: "La Di Da"
- Recorded in a bunch of different cities during casual sessions resulting in a really accessible chill sound and tone. This is totally a vibe album and they find it quick and rolllllll through it. See: "Roll (Burbank Funk)"
- The instrumentation is so crisp. Even with big drawn out atmospheric reverb, the guitars come through so cleanly and the drums punch and the bass bounces effortlessly. See: "Look What U Started" and "Beat Goes On"
- Most all of the songs lyrics fall under these same vibes. Generally about relationships, they are more of an open invitation to the vibe than a demand. Like how "Stay the Night" is a much less creepy version of 'Baby Its Cold Outside'. See also: "Come Over"
- The album tends to settle into itself too much in the second half of the album. It finds its footing and doesn't really deviate which for an hour long album, isn't really ideal. "Mood" and "Bravo" could have easily been dropped.
- I wish there would be more back and forth in the vocals. It works really well in the beginning of the album but gets dropped later on. Like if "Hold On" had been a duet of sorts, it would have added a lot more.
